- Polestar has announced that orders of the Polestar 2 EV will be fulfilled to customers’ locations for free as long as they’re within 100 miles from a company store.
- The manufacturer also clarified later that it will offer delivery to states where there are no nearby outlets, although these users will have to pay a “destination fee”.
- Deliveries of the Polestar 2 will reportedly begin in September this year, as the company aims to open more locations in the U.S. by 2021.
We recently talked about how the Polestar 2’s pricing makes it eligible for rebates in multiple states. However, customers are still pretty concerned about deliveries, particularly given the lack of Polestar retail locations across the U.S. The company has mentioned that it will set up stores in New York City, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area (2 stores) initially, while Canadian cities like Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal will also see a Polestar store opening up soon.
The company has now added that it will offer free deliveries to all customers as long as the nearest company outlet is not more than 100 miles away. Deliveries to existing customers will begin in September. This brought up some concerns about those who live more than 100 miles away from any of the company assigned stores.
A user on Reddit managed to speak with the Polestar customer support to confirm that the company will offer deliveries to other states, although customers will be charged a “destination fee” which also includes delivery charges.
Polestar has said that it will add more outlets in 2021, although there’s no clarity on where they might be located. The company had previously said that it plans to operate in all 50 states of the U.S. Clearly that aspect is a work in progress right now.
The Polestar 2 shows a lot of promise and is one of the highly anticipated electric sedans in the U.S. It comes with a range of 275 miles powered by a 78kWh battery underneath. The EV can be charged at regular home units or at dedicated free or paid electric charging points. The car also offers a CCS connector that supports fast charging.
