Awww yeahhhh, the U.S. gets more Polestar 2 BSTs! Well, okay, just 11 more. And they’re already sold out anyway. Whoops.
The Polestar 2 BST Edition 270, a special-edition electric hatchback with limited worldwide availability, will now have 58 units allocated for the US market. This is a slight increase from the originally planned 47 units.
“We had a great reaction to the specially modified Polestar 2 we showed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2021 and the response made it clear – we should create a version like that for production,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.
A spokesperson for Polestar told Motor Authority that the BST Edition 270 is already sold out in the US, even despite that extra allocation.
The BST Edition 270 boasts a number of chassis modifications, as well as the impressive 476 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque found in the Long Range Dual Motor model (if you want to splurge for an extra $1,195 power upgrade, that is).
These modifications — including a 1-inch lower ride height, specially tuned Öhlins dampers, a front strut bar, and snazzy 21-inch wheels — are supposed to improve the car’s handling without sacrificing ride comfort.
So congratulations to the lucky dogs who managed to snag one of these super-limited Polestars. We are not at all jealous. Nope.
