Following the release of its dual-motor variant late last year, Polestar announced on Wednesday that the 270-mile long range, single-motor version of its Polestar 2 EV is now available for sale in the US. 

Starting at $45,900 — $33,400 after federal and state incentives — the single-motor Polestar 2 is $4,000 less expensive than its AWD sibling (which starts at $51,200) and provides 16 extra miles of driving range to the all-wheel's 249 miles. Other than the number of e-motors affixed to their axles, the two are functionally identical.

“All variants of the Polestar 2 exude the brand’s leadership in cutting-edge technology with the Google infotainment system, premium sustainable materials, and unparalleled avant-garde design," Gregor Hembrough, Head of Polestar North America, said in a press statement. The $4,000 creature comfort "Plus" upgrade and $3,200 "Pilot" sensor and safety package are likewise available with either powertrain setup.
