Polestar 2 wins Golden Steering Wheel and German Car of the Year awards
The Polestar 2 has been awarded the 2020 Golden Steering Wheel in the medium-sized-SUV category.
The annual “Goldenes Lenkrad” awards program – established by Germany’s Auto Bild car magazine and Bild am Sonntag newspaper in the mid 1970s – is one of the most prestigious motoring accolades in Europe.
As in previous years, the publications called on their readers to participate in the vote for the best cars of 2020.
Readers took a vote for 63 vehicles, in eight categories, that have been on the market since October 2019. Three finalists in the respective vehicle classes were determined based on readers' votes, which were then evaluated by an independent jury of automotive experts.
Polestar 2 was the only electric model to make it into the final round in the medium-sized SUV category and was ultimately able to prevail against tough competition – with the Golden Steering Wheel matching neatly with the car’s ‘Swedish gold’ seatbelts.
The electric car’s outstanding driving experience plus the overall high quality of the vehicle convinced the European jury, consisting of international automobile journalists, racing drivers, celebrities and car enthusiasts.
