Polestar 2 gains top marks for safety

March 4, 2021

Polestar 2 has been awarded a maximum five stars after being tested for its safety rating by Euro NCAP, with the Swedish electric performance fastback performing well in all the latest tests and protocols. 

Developed in the Volvo Safety Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden, the car’s crashworthiness was naturally a top priority.

“Volvo Cars is one of our founders and by sharing their expertise with us, safety is a core competence in our cars. This shows in the excellent Euro NCAP rating of Polestar 2,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

Safety equipment is of the highest order, ranging from eight airbags including the only inner-side airbags currently fitted to a premium EV that has been tested by Euro NCAP, to the Front Lower Load Path and Severe Partial Offset Collision Block that are designed to mitigate impact on the battery pack and passenger compartment alike.

High-tech safety systems aim to ensure that safety extends beyond structural integrity and occupant protection, including vehicle, cyclist and pedestrian detection support, as well as lane and roadside departure warning and mitigation systems. The highly advanced Pilot Assist driver assistance system uses a radar and a camera to assist with acceleration, braking and steering at speeds of up to 80mph.
