Polestar began as the performance offshoot of Volvo, Sweden’s most famous automaker, all the way back in the 90s. However, its debut electric car - the Polestar 2 - has become one of the most desirable premium EVs on the market. The upcoming Polestar 3 looks to capitalise on combining two of the most rapidly increasing sectors of the automotive market: electric vehicles and SUVs.
Positioned to be a performance-orientated SUV that doesn’t skimp on the luxury, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath reiterated the importance of the Polestar 3 sticking to the company’s founding roots: “Polestar 3 is the SUV for the electric age. Our design identity evolves with this high-end large luxury EV, with a strong, individual brand character.
Polestar claim the car will eventually have autonomous highway piloting, a powerful dual-motor drivetrain and an incredibly large battery pack. The target WLTP range is over 600km. No range anxiety there.
If an uber-high-end SUV sounds like your next vehicle, there’s a bit of a wait. Orders will first open on the day of the unveiling, with production set to begin in early 2023. As Polestar is a subsidiary of Chinese mega-automaker Geely, production will take place both in China and the Unites States.
The Polestar 3 marks the beginning of the manufacturer ramping up production, and presence, in the EV market. Luckily for us, that means a new Polestar hitting the market every year for the next three years.
