Polestar’s entry-level EV luxury sedan has critical darling for a while, but it’s lacked a full-fat sports model. Well, the Polestar 2 just got a lot sportier, in the form of the limited run, BST Edition 270.

The Polestar 2 BST Edition 270 is a limited-run, hotted-up version of the Polestar 2 EV sedan. Polestar’s turned up the power on the front and rear motors, for a healthy 476HP. This reduces the already fast 4.6 0-60 MPH time, to a lighting quick 4.2 seconds. The responsiveness of both motors has also been heightened, according to Polestar. The battery pack remains the same, with 78 kWh.

On the chassis and suspension front, Polestar’s given the sedan a reworking to back up that extra power. The vehicle has been lowered by 25mm (0.9 inches) and gets “specially developed and unique” Öhlins 2-way adjustable dampers, with auxiliary adjustment chambers mounted under the hood. Polestar finishes off the BST Edition 270 with a front strut bar, “specially developed” Pirelli P-Zero tires, and a set of 21-inch wheels that are claimed to be inspired by the Polestar 1.

On the outside, the Polestar 2 BST Edition 270 can be had in Thunder (grey), or Snow (white), with options of a matte black stripe, or full-body satin finish Battleship Grey wrap. Side mirrors are glossy black, and the rubber trim on the normal Polestar 2 is now body-colored.

As the name implies, the Polestar BST Edition 270 will be a limited run of 270 cars, meant for Europe, North America, and China. Only 20 units will head to Canada, and 47 units will reach the United States.

Production is planned for mid-2022, with deliveries coming this winter.
