Polestar's sophomore effort, the Polestar 2, will be recalled soon due to a critical software issue. So far, there have been no reported accidents, but some drivers have reportedly experienced their cars just shutting off while driving. According to an InsideEVs report, Polestar confirmed to a Swedish website that the brake and steering systems will still work with the car powered off, but the issue is occurring within the cars' software. It has been reported that sometimes drivers get an error message first, other times it has happened without warning at all. Some of the bricked cars have even been in the shop for up to a month waiting for a fix.

The sexy Volvo-esque EV is the second car released by Polestar after the company decided to solely pursue electric vehicles. The $60k Polestar 2 churns out an impressive 408 hp and 487 pound-feet of twist to bolt to 60mph in 4 and a half seconds. It's slotted under the company's initial car, the Polestar 1, in the brand's hierarchy. The drool-worthy Precept concept car has just been given the green light for production, so let's hope this little (major) recall is just a blip on Polestar's exciting story.

    Well, spin it as a design feature: it’s a range extender.
