I think it may only have been a written Q&A session.
It's not a video. The Official Polestar FB group had Christian available for an hour to answer any written/typed questions. So it's basically a thread of people asking questions and written responses.Is this event on FB live? Would it be possible for anybody with FB to record it or post a link here after if they leave one for people to watch later that couldn’t in real time? I’m not a FB user, not that I’m old or boring but if I were interested in interacting with you after high school I’d call you on the phone or meet up somewhere. Hmm, maybe I am old now, does this sound crotchety to anybody? Lol
99% certain it is telling you, buttons to do stuff looks different (like the ECO climate button). The point of this new app is to help you understand what eats your range, and driving aggressively will do just that (and hence it would say something else in that field).Is it telling you, or is it a mode selection? Like "Comfort" on Volvos? Volvos have a similar driver configurable setting, that allows you to toggle Eco-climate and select driving modes (Comfort, Eco, Dynamic/Polestar Engineered).
Not everyone who drives this car is a turbonerd like us. For a v1 of a new functionality, I'm okay if they cater to the common denominator of their customers.I don't understand how I was dumb enough to be so excited when I read the announcement, thinking we would have access to actual numbers and stats (watts used by hvac, celcius degrees of the battery, etc.)
Nope, instead, we only get "low consumption".
Why doesn't the outside thermometer displays "cold-warm-hot" and the clock displays "morning-noon-evening-night"?
You have a good point, and I think you're correct. I do wonder though, if this is designed to inform a future drive mode selection option. I think that would be a welcomed addition.99% certain it is telling you, buttons to do stuff looks different (like the ECO climate button).

I did not know that actually, if Polestar put a lot out there I’ll have to join then. Thanks for the info!It's not a video.

You know you can join FB and not be visible, and just join groups you want, right?
They didn't really reveal a whole lot more than you could garner from the release notes themselves. The questions and answers got repetitive.Don’t get too excited if you’re in the US. They always manage to schedule these in the dead of night for those of us on the west coast, at least, with no option to submit a question in advance.
Someone else asked the original question but It was me who rephrased it 😄. Glad some people got a laugh out of it. I didn't expect that they would respond.I did laugh out loud at one bit of brilliance by someone.
They asked about a particular feature, Polestar replied saying 'I'm only answering questions about P1.7' so the poster then re-phrased their question as 'Why isn't .... included in P1.7'.
No response from PS of course... sense of humour bypass...!
First, thank you for sharing!
Lucky you! Now you get to answer questions from the rest of us that are waiting to have this one. A couple from me:
1.1 was the last OTA update I received too. I upgraded from 1.1 to 1.6 at the dealers last week, got the App working (meh), and improved 4g connectivity (woohoo!)Wow my last update was 1.1 .... 1.7 actually looks worth me taking to Polestar to apply and fix the OTA issue that stopped it applying updates after 1.1!
My GOM is definitely not a fixed relationship. Terrain and weather have an impact that is noticeable. My driving style doesn't change that much except for the very occasional sprint to 60.First, thank you for sharing!
Second, I'm starting to think the GoM is a fixed relationship, regardless of driving habits. The owners manual indicates otherwise, and maybe in some earlier software version, it actually did try to account for driving style, but for me, it's always displayed a fixed relationship to the stated/regulated range. In the US that range is 233 miles at 100% SoC (TBD on that going up to 249 miles shortly), and has been 400km at 100% SoC for Europe. So, seeing 300km in the GoM and 74% SoC seems spot on to me.
And like I said, for me, it doesn't matter how I drive, it retains that relationship.
I know others (you included) have said that. But on mine, I can drive 80-90mph on the highway, or be stuck in city traffic, or be on a spirited back roads drive, and the mileage shown on the GoM is ALWAYS a function of the percentage and nothing more. If I charge it up to 100% SoC it will show 230 miles, no matter what. More often though, I charge up to 90%, which is then 210 miles. From there, it just continues to be fixed. If I show 50% SoC, it will show 120 (because it rounds). 35%, 80 miles, etc., etc.My GOM is definitely not a fixed relationship. Terrain and weather have an impact that is noticeable.
