Polestar 2 BST Edition 230 Arrives As 2nd Limited Edition Model
The Polestar 2 BST Edition 230 is the 2nd limited edition Polestar 2 after the BST edition 270.
Polestar, the Swedish electric car manufacturer, has just announced the release of its second limited-edition Polestar 2 version – the BST edition 230. Following on from the original BST edition 270, the new release has been modified to place even more emphasis on performance design details. “BST” is a contraction for “The Beast”.
According to Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, “Limited drops like the BST edition 230 allow us to explore colours, graphics and materials in faster and more creative ways.” This is certainly reflected in the unique design upgrades that the Polestar 2 BST edition 230 boasts.
One of the most notable features of the Polestar 2 BST edition 230 is its exclusive green Nebula paintwork. This is sure to turn heads and make a bold statement on the road.
The car also features MicroSuede textile for the seats and steering wheel inserts, which are made from partly recycled Nubuck textile. This eco-conscious material is not only good for the environment, but it also adds a touch of luxury to the car’s interior.
The exterior of the car is available in Space (black), with an optional full-length body stripe available for either body colour. This gives customers the flexibility to personalise their car to suit their taste and style.
But the Polestar 2 BST edition 230 is not just about looks. It also packs a punch when it comes to performance. All of the chassis upgrades that were implemented in the original Polestar 2 BST edition 270 remain available, including the lowered ride height (-25 mm), specially developed and unique Öhlins 2-way adjustable dampers, front strut bar, 20% stiffer springs and unique black 21-inch alloy wheels that are inspired by those of Polestar 1, fitted with 245/35R21 Pirelli P Zero tyres developed specifically for BST edition cars. These upgrades were designed to deliver ultimate thrills and make the car an absolute joy to drive.
The Polestar 2 BST edition 230 will be a limited production run, with only 230 units available for the European and North American markets.
The car will be available for online sale and deliveries are expected by Q3 2023.
