I drove a Polestar 2 MY24 Dual Motor Long Range Performance (on media loan for a week to review) from Holsworthy to the Warragamba Dam lookout and Visitors Centre, then to the Evie Networks 350kW charging station at Penrith to test the fast charging rate.
For background I drove almost 100km to the charger location. The temperature at the destination was 28C and the test was done in Sydney during early Summer on the 15th September 2023.
I used the built-in Google maps charging station destination feature to get there so the car should have been optimally prepared to charge.
Polestar promises DC charging time of 10-80% in 28 min on an ultra fast charger. Watch the video below to see how the charging rate changed as the battery filled up.
The charge started at 44%/210km range on the car range guess-o-meter and finished at 83%/400km range. Sending 35.169kWh to the battery cost me $22.86 inc GST.
My suggestion based on this test is that the optimal stopping point is 73% for a Polestar 2 MY24 Long Range, balancing time spent versus charge gained at an ultra fast charger.
This is confirmed by a similar charging curve test result achieved by a Norwegian owner of a Polestar 2 MY24 Long Range.
Don’t bother going above 80% on a public DC charger unless you really really need the range and aren’t hogging the charger as charging from 80 to 100% will take about an hour extra.
