Long story. Short version - we got one of the very early P2's and expected some teething problems, but hit a whole load of issues and problems resulting in the car being basically unusable. In addition there were a lot or recalls coming out to rectify mechanical defects and software issues, and promised software such as OTA and phone App were suddenly announced as having long delays. We gave notice of intention to reject within 14 days and gave them a chance (then another) to fix. After 2 failed attempts by Volvo to fix the problems we decided enough was enough and rejected the car. At that time Volvo had not been trained or familiarised in the P2 and did their best but simply had the problem dumped in their laps in the UK and didn't have a clue.Oh. What happened with polestar ?
To be fair to Polestar, I believe most of the major early problems have been resolved by recalls and some software updates. I also think that some of the volvo dealers are now much more experienced with the P2. There are still many things which were promised in the early marketing/sales blurb which are well overdue, but they will get resolved. Their customer relations and communications is still non-existent though.Oh wow. I was considering a P2. Seen an early pre production model in Stockholm a couple of years ago and it looked great. Subsequent reviews have been good. Shame it didn’t live up to expectations
That is a lot of weight to drag around, I agree. I suspect that has a direct impact on efficiency. The Polestar is also 2 tonnes, and the AWD P2 sticks to the road brilliantly even under heavy right foot. I am not sure that the 2WD version will behave nearly as politely, which maybe partly explains why the 5 is much slower 0-60?Really disappointed that this car weighs over 2 tonnes.
