Should I be worried about Polestar 2 battery degradation?

We test-drove a Polestar 2, and my wife and I love it, but there’s not much information about the car available. Should I be worried about Polestar 2 battery degradation?

The battery on your Polestar 2 is anticipated to last for 10 years or longer—though because it’s such a new vehicle, there’s no record to rely on. Besides the anticipated battery life, you should also be aware of the Polestar 2 recall before you decide to buy.
The recall directly relates to the vehicle’s battery, as a problem with its electrical system and software could cause a disruption in the vehicle’s power while driving. Make sure the systems have been repaired by the terms of the recall if you’re planning to purchase a Polestar 2.
Otherwise, the Polestar 2, which is a subsidiary of Volvo, is anticipated to have excellent longevity for its battery and the vehicle overall. Good luck, and happy driving!
