The P2 not only received the maximum five-star rating, but the results are strong in all categories.
An interesting thing is the new active bonnet system, which should help to reduce the impact on the pedestrian's head (see video from about 2:00). It allowed Polestar 2 to elevate the Vulnerable Road Users score to 80%.
Here are the detailed results:
- Adult Occupant - 92 percent
- Child Occupant - 89 percent
- Vulnerable Road Users - 80 percent
- Safety Assist - 86 percent
