Welcome to EV Diaries, firsthand accounts from our EV for a Week trial where we let 50 RAC members take home a Polestar 2 electric car for seven days.
Over the week, we got their honest feedback about what it's like to own and live life with an EV in the form of a daily diary.
From road trips across WA to commuting around the city, hear about tackling range anxiety, what it's like to use a public charging station, charging at home, and more.
Follow our members as they share their EV driving experiences—both good and bad—tracking every charge, challenge, and surprise.
