Polestar 2 owner ordered to pay €80,000 for battery replacement when it was bought for €49,000

Mr. Huang, the owner of a Polestar 2 Long Range with two electric motors, had an accident with his car, resulting in severe material damage to the front end and chassis, which also affected the battery pack.

With the battery dented inward, it was deemed necessary to replace it for safety reasons. So the owner of the Swedish model – which is made in China – took his crashed car to the dealership to be repaired.

There, he was informed that the purchase and installation of a new battery would cost 540,000 yuan (€79,000). With the aforementioned version costing 338,000 yuan (almost 48,800 euros), this means that replacing the battery is 1.6 times more than the cost of buying the Polestar 2.

According to a salesperson at the Polestar dealership in Hangzhou city, the current price to replace the entire battery pack is about 400,000 yuan (€57,760). This suggests Mr Huang may also have been charged for other repairs his car needed.
