A road trip in an electric car
During the recent Easter holidays, Sophie and Marc chose to travel by train and electric car, taking advantage of the Avis benefit on their Visa Premier card…
Polestar here, Polestar there, Polestar everywhere… Sophie has had enough of hearing Marc rave about this car, and she even wonders what it has that she doesn't...
After all, a car is just a means of getting from A to B, right? Maybe for Sophie, but not for Marc!
Is it only Marc who always seems to have less than 10% battery power left on his phone, especially when he needs it the most? In the Polestar, wireless fast charging means there is no need for a USB charging cable. Marc can simply place his smartphone on the dashboard charging pad, which will charge it wirelessly. That's handy, isn’t it?
With the Polestar, there is no need to worry about all that. The car is fitted with Android, so Marc can use Google Maps wherever he is, as well as other apps he already relies on to avoid traffic jams. He can also log into his Google account and access all his favourite apps directly.
Sound is a key feature of cars, right? And not just the engine noise – in this case, the Polestar is electric so it will be silent. The sound that counts for Marc is what comes from the speakers when he plays old songs from his wild days!
Sophie has always been embarrassed because Marc loves to play old tunes in the car with the windows wide open – otherwise what's the point?
Not only does the Polestar have a 360° camera and pixel LED headlamps, it also offers extra safety features with the Pilot Pack. Marc feels safe in this car, and he protects others too.
And since we're talking about safety, Marc has chosen to lease his Polestar. Which means that changing tyres, vehicle testing and other maintenance is included in the contract, so Marc doesn't have to worry about anything for the next five years.
Marc could choose between a contract over 3, 4 or 5 years , with up to 10.000, 20.000 or 30.000 km/year*.
Without worrying about his battery! And just in case, he has noted where he can charge his new car en route. You know Marc, he likes to be prepared, so he has an enodrive zen card from Enovos. The card is valid throughout Europe, so wherever he goes, he knows in advance where he can charge his battery.
In Luxembourg it's easy – Marc can charge his car almost anywhere and he has even spotted where the SuperChargy stations are located so he can charge his Polestar 2 even faster.
Environmental factors such as wind speed, temperature and the road surface can affect the range of electric vehicles.
Marc was wondering about this, and to find out more, he contacted his bank, which can help him throughout his energy transition, even for mobility solutions!
