Polestar 2 gets another rare, performance-focused variant called the BST edition 230, but it’s not coming to Australia.

Polestar has just revealed another limited version of the Polestar 2, called the BST edition 230.

The BST edition 230 name alludes to how many units will be made, making it rarer than the 270.

The powertrain is the same as before. A 78kWh battery from the Polestar 2 Long Range dual-motor, combined with the Performance Pack means there’s 250kW and 680Nm of torque. The 0-100km/h sprint is dealt with in 4.4 seconds and it’ll go on to a top speed of 204km/h.

Range takes a big hit compared to the 591km Long range model, down to 462km in the BST edition 230.

Polestar’s chassis improvements are carried over from the 270. This includes the 25mm lower ride height, Ohlin’s 2-way adjustable dampers, front strut bar, 20 per cent stiffer springs and 21-inch alloys wheels inspired by the Polestar 1. The Pirelli P Zero tyres have even been specifically developed for the two BST edition versions.

What is new on the 230 is the exclusive green paint and the recycled suede upholstery in the cabin. There’s also an option to paint the exterior body colour black and the full-length central stripe can be specified in black or green.

Like BST Edition 270, the BST Edition 230 will not come to Australia.
