The Polestar 2 is a pretty amazing car. They are also pretty popular with the stars. Leonardo DiCaprio has a blue Polestar 2 that he proudly drives, not only for personal use, but also for attending his film premieres. The Polestar 2 made an appearance at the premiere of “Don’t Look Up” for example.

Jack Scarlett of Fully Charged fame is also a big fan of the car. He even got the chance to drive a special version of the Polestar 2 around the Arctic Circle in one of the iconic episodes of the Fully Charged Show. Jack also managed to crash the Polestar 2. We obviously wouldn’t recommend doing that.
