14.5.2021Thousands to test-drive Polestar 2 in Milton Keynes
Polestar UK has opened a new test-drive hub in Milton Keynes. Its opening comes off the back of the success of Polestar's test-drive programme last year, when thousands of slots were fully booked within hours of being made available.
The hub will provide a chance for more than 7,000 consumers to properly experience the Polestar 2 before 2021 draws to a close. It will also supplement the recently re-opened Polestar London and Polestar Manchester Spaces, along with other test-drive activity planned for 2021. Together, these sites will enable 28,000 consumers to get behind the wheel of Sweden’s performance electric car. Eight of Polestar’s electric vehicles – each purely for demonstration purposes – will be available to customers to enjoy on unaccompanied test drives.
What's more, demand is such that Milton Keynes isn’t the only test-drive facility being introduced. Polestar UK will also deliver a series of other semi-permanent test-drive hubs – in Daventry, Cambridge and Harrogate, for starters – over the summer. More locations are also due be announced.
A series of pop-up events at other locations for shorter periods of time will also help to ensure UK consumers are able to test-drive a Polestar with maximum ease and convenience. Many will be supported by well-known public charging firm Instavolt, while a large-scale event was hosted at Gridserve’s Essex electric forecourt in Braintree earlier in May.
Jonathan Goodman, CEO of Polestar UK, said:
“We saw such huge demand in 2020 for test drives, it was clear we needed to deliver more opportunity for consumers to experience our fully-electric Polestar 2 first-hand. But it had to be done in a high-quality way befitting the Polestar brand and be easy to book and access, and so Milton Keynes was an obvious choice. Excellent transport links, great test drive routes and a reputation as the foremost technological centre of the UK ensure it’s the perfect location for us.”
The Polestar 2 is available to buy at Polestar.com, priced from £39,900 OTR.
