Polestar UK opens Milton Keynes test drive hub


Polestar UK has opened a new test drive hub in Milton Keynes for motorists to experience the Polestar 2.

Supplementing the recently re-opened Polestar London and Polestar Manchester Spaces, along with other test drive activity planned for 2021, the hub will facilitate will have eight vehicles – each purely for demonstration purposes, for customers o take on unaccompanied test drives.

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.”

Polestar UK will also deliver a series of other semi-permanent test-drive hubs – in Daventry, Cambridge and Harrogate for example – over the summer. More locations will be announced in due course.

A series of pop-up events at other locations for shorter periods of time will also support this activity, ensuring UK consumers can access the opportunity 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.

The Polestar 2 is available to buy at Polestar.com priced from £39,900 OTR.
