Polestar 3 SUV Confirmed as Polestar 2 Finally gets digital key technology

Locking and unlocking the doors with your smartphone is not a big deal. Tesla has been offering this feature for eons and the same goes for the FordPass for the Mustang Mach-E. As for Polestar, the Sino-Swedish carmaker has taken a long time to launch a digital key in addition to the keychain.

As if the overdue update wasn’t embarrassing enough for a company posing as Tesla’s killer with Polestar 2, the digital key has been described as a beta as a means of apologizing for any mistakes. Adding insult to injury, application-based features that include battery status and remote climate start are also beta, although not state-of-the-art.

“The updated app brings the added convenience of owning Polestar 2,”

; said CEO Thomas Ingenlat. “Of course, more features will be released in the future, and we see great potential for the ongoing digital experience.” Given that even the Hyundai Sonata can be moved remotely forward or backward with the physical keychain, the Sino-Swedish brand has a lot of catching up with carmakers on the mass market.

Apart from the critics, we should not forget how young the Polestar brand is. These guys have a lot to prove over the next few years, and that brings us to the last paragraph of the press release attached at the end of this article. As the title suggests, the Polestar 3 has finally been confirmed under the guise of electric performance SUV along with the production electric sedan based on last year’s Precept design study.

All we know about Precept is that it embodies the brand’s vision in terms of design, technology and sustainability. As for the three, your guess is as good as mine, as so far nothing but the part of the SUV has been shared.

If those looking at Polestar copy Tesla’s Model Y recipe, then we should expect 2 with higher ground clearance and crossover. As such, the range of Polestar 3 variants can be complemented by a two-engine drive with 300 kW (402 horsepower) per crane and 78-kWh battery.
