Just a few weeks after delivery of the Polestar 2 started , almost all electric cars have to be repaired in the workshop . A total of 4,586 vehicles are affected.

The Sino-Swedish automaker identified two problems. One concerns the inverter, the other the coolant heating of the battery. The inverter is exchanged in the workshop. In addition, defective parts in the high-voltage coolant heater must be replaced. The device is responsible for heating the interior and the coolant of the battery.

The owners will be notified by the manufacturer from November 2nd. This also warns of delays in delivery of new vehicles because they would also have to be repaired before handover. The cars also get an upgrade when they visit the workshop. They can then be updated over-the-air.

The Polestar 2 is a hatchback sedan with all-wheel drive, two engines and a total output of 300 kilowatts and a torque of 660 Newton meters. It goes from 0 to 100 km / h in less than five seconds.

Electromobility: Basics and Practice

The battery with 78 kilowatt hours should enable a range of 470 km (WLTP). The maximum charging power is 150 kilowatts, although this level is not maintained for long, as testers reported. The relatively high power requirement compared to the Model 3, which was found in the first tests, shows that the first Polestar has not yet caught up with Tesla. The basic version of the Polestar 2 costs just under 58,000 euros before subsidies.
