According to the video, the car was able to cover the distance in 11 hours and 15 minutes (after deducting some time losses), at an average speed of 88.9 km/h (55 mph), taking six fast charging stops.

Considering the temperatures of roughly 8°C, it's not a bad result - it's expected that at higher temperatures it would match the Volkswagen ID.3 1ST (RWD, 62 kWh), which needed 10 hours and 45 minutes.
It's interesting that the entry-level Polestar 2 SR SM beat the original Polestar 2 (AWD, 78 kWh), which in September 2020 noted a time of 11 hours and 30 minutes, despite a bigger battery and higher temperatures.
The new single-motor Polestar 2 appears to be more efficient and also has received improved software (vP1.7), which allows it to charge faster (including battery pre-conditioning ahead of fast charging).
Nonetheless, if we compare the result with the 2021 Tesla Model 3 SR+ (MIC) - 9 hours and 55 minutes (in higher temperatures) - there is a noticeable gap of roughly one hour or 10%.
The conclusion is that Polestar is taking steps in the right direction, but there is still work to do.
