How long does a Polestar 2 take to charge fully?

I’ve been looking into buying an electric car and have narrowed it down to the Tesla Model 3 or the Polestar 2. I drive reasonably long distances for work, so I need a car that can charge relatively quickly. How long does it take the Polestar 2 to fully charge?

are great for reducing car expenses if you drive long distances, but charging time can be tricky—especially if you need it to charge fast. While it depends on the charger you use, the Polestar 2 takes about 40 hours to charge at 110V and 8 hours at 220V.
If you’re using DC fasting charging, you can charge your battery from 10% to 80% at 50kW in 65 minutes or 150kW in 35 minutes. In contrast, the
Tesla Model 3
Model S
can charge from 10% to 80% with DC fast charging in about 20 minutes at a 150kW.
The Polestar 2 may fall behind the Tesla in fast-charging times, but the two vehicles are solid competitors that offer great electric rides.
