Polestar 2 owners have the opportunity to install the latest operating system upgrade including Android R for the Android Automotive OS infotainment system. These software changes include an enhanced app and like most EVs, functions that future-proof their cars. The Over-The-Air upgrades will roll out to owners incrementally from early April 2022.
The P2.0 software enhancements are downloaded and installed remotely, to accelerate the integration of new functionality, performance and personalisation. As the downloads come via the inbuilt SIM, you have to be within cell range and that’s a problem for some in high density towers. Whilst the updates are occurring, the Polestar 2 is immobile for up to an hour and a half.
