The BST is essentially a Polestar 2 with the optional Pilot, Plus, and Performance pack upgrades for the $76,900 starting price.

According to Polestar's online configurator, adding these options to a non-BST model takes the price to $66,400.

The upgraded Brembo brakes and 469 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque of the BST are identical to those of the Performance pack.

The lithium-ion battery pack that powers the EV, which has a 75.0-kWh usable capacity and supports DC fast-charging at a rate of 155 kW, is a carryover as well.
