Bjorn Nyland recently had an opportunity to conduct a range test of the new Polestar 2, which is rated at 470 km (292 miles) WLTP.

At a constant speed of 90 km/h (56 mph) it achieved about 435 km (270 miles) and had a relatively high energy consumption of 167 Wh/km (269 Wh/mi). The usable energy was estimated at 72.8 kWh (out of 78 kWh total).

The range result is about 86 km (16.5%) lower than in the case of the Tesla Model 3 Performance with mud flaps (521 km / 324 miles) and 7.4% lower than the WLTP combined rating.

At higher speed (by 33%), 120 km/h (75 mph), Polestar 2 was able to do around 305 km (190 miles), as the energy consumption increased by 37% to 229 Wh/km (368 Wh/mi). This time only 69.8 kWh of energy was estimated available.

The difference between the Model 3 tested at the same speed (391 km / 243 miles) was again 86 km (or 22% lower).

We guess that the Polestar has a lower range in big part because it’s less aerodynamic than the Tesla. At 2,240 kg, it’s also a heavy car.

Polestar 2 specs:

* in China battery capacity will be 72 kWh
