Swedish all-electric car manufacturer Polestar is preparing an upgrade for its limited edition, performance-oriented Polestar 2 BST 270 model, according to a couple of teaser tweets posted yesterday.
The Swedish brand’s CEO, Thomas Ingenlath, published a short video showing a Polestar 2 with a center stripe, with the description: “Very soon: Next edition of our Polestar 2.”
The marque’s official account then posted a photo of a car wearing Pirelli P Zero tires on black wheels, as well as a golden brake caliper that looks identical to that of the 2022 Polestar 2 BST Edition 270.
As a reminder, the Swedish EV maker said that the 2022 BST Edition 270 will be built in 270 units, with just 55 cars reserved for the US market, each with a starting price of $75,500. For this amount of money, Polestar upgraded the Tesla Model 3 rival with Ohlins two-way adjustable dampers, stiffer springs, and a new front strut tower brace that helps enhance responsiveness. Unique 21-inch alloy wheels are also present, wrapped in the aforementioned Pirelli P Zero tires, helping the dual-motor all-wheel drive setup put down its 476 horsepower and 502 pound-feet (680 Newton-meters) of torque on the road.
But that was back in June 2022. More recently, the Geely-owned brand announced a facelift for the 2024 model year, which brings more power, more range, and a switch from front-wheel drive to rear-wheel drive for the base version.
So, when everything is said and done, we’re expecting Polestar to reveal a refreshed variant of the Polestar 2 BST (which beans “Beast”, by the way) that will incorporate the improvements announced for the mass-produced model.
Nothing is official yet, but everything will be revealed soon, so stay tuned on InsideEVs.com to get updates about Polestar’s latest endeavors. You could also check out the latest episodes of our podcast:
