Polestar has as part of its Polestar Engineered Portfolios has developed a second limited edition of the Polestar 2: the BST edition 230. Based on the extraordinary suspension modifications, which were developed for the ultimate driving pleasure of the original BST model, the new version puts a stronger focus on performance design details. "Limited models like the BST edition 230 allow us to implement colours, graphics and materials in a faster and more creative way' said Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar. Unique design upgrades for the Polestar 2 BST edition 230 with a power of 350 kW and a torque of 680 Nm include the exclusive green "Nebula" paintwork and the MicroSuede cover for the seats and steering wheel inserts - made from partially recycled nubuck Textiles. The exterior can also be ordered in the color “Space” (black).

All chassis upgrades that were used for the first time on the Polestar 2 BST edition 270 are also part of the new special model. These include the lowering (-25 mm), the specially developed and unique dual-adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers, the front strut bar, the 20 percent stiffer springs and the unique 21-inch black alloy wheels.
