Polestar has taken its Polestar 2 on a little trek through the cold, testing its capabilities on ice and snow with a new one-off special edition. The Polestar 2 "Arctic Circle" showcases what could be possible with a handful of cold weather upgrades that are fitted to a Long Range Dual Motor with Performance Pack model. These upgrades include a raised ride height that adds 1.18", an increase in performance with 469 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque, custom 19" studded winter tires, specially tuned three-way Öhlins dampers, front and rear strut braces, a prototype launch control system, and a carbon fiber snow shovel and recovery strap have also been equipped. It also includes 19" OZ Racing wheels, Stedi Quad Pro LED front lights, custom-upholstered Recaro bucket seats, and a carbon fiber skid plate.
