Polestar has released another limited-edition version of its Polestar 2 within the Polestar Engineered portfolio – the BST edition 230. Building on the outstanding chassis modifications of the initially crafted BST edition, this new version focuses more on performance design features.

- This new BST edition is a highly exclusive piece, with only 230 examples available for Europe and North America.!
- 25 Cars will be available to UK customers in the country.
The 230 and 270 models both feature the same twin-motor powertrain, boasting 469bhp/502lb ft of torque. This translates to a 0-62mph time of just 4.4 seconds, reaching a top speed of 125mph.
“Limited drops like the BST edition 230 allow us to explore colours, graphics and materials in faster and more creative ways,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.
The Polestar 2 BST edition 230 comes with standout design features – green Nebula paintwork and MicroSuede textual seats and steering wheel inserts crafted from partly recycled Nubuck textile – plus the option of a striking full-length body stripe in Space (black) or a matching colour.

The wheels are based on the ones from the Polestar 1 car and are fitted with Pirelli P Zero tyres designed exclusively for BST editions.
230 Polestar cars will be released for the European and North American markets. Beginning March 21, 2023, Delivery of these units is planned to start in Q3 2023.
