The electric Polestar 3 that will debut in October of this year will be sold at prices between €75 000 and €110 000, CEO Thomas Ingenlath confirmed at the Automotive News Europe Congress.
Ingenlath mentioned the base price for its large SUV earlier in December 2021 and added that a compacter crossover version, the Polestar 4, would be positioned starting at €55 000. But with the opening of preordering imminent, prices are confirmed.
Geely’s daughter and Volvo’s sister Polestar revealed the first entire picture of its Polestar 3, its first SUV beginning of June. It will have a dual-motor drive and a large battery to achieve a WLTP range of over 600 kilometers at launch. It is clear that, as with the Polestar 2, the all-wheel-drive variant will be available first.
There is no information yet about the drive power, charging capacity, or battery size. However, given the size of the car and the targeted range, this has to be around 90 to 100 kWh.
Instead, the Swedish-Chinese carmaker confirms that the Polestar 3 with lidar sensors from Luminar and Nvidia computers will also enable autonomous driving on the highway “over time”. Production of the Polestar 3 is scheduled to begin in the US and China in early 2023.
125% more cars delivered than in 2021
Meanwhile, the Polestar 2, the first 100% electric sedan of the brand, stands an excellent chance with 21 200 or 125% more cars delivered in the first six months of this year compared to the year before.
That includes only a part – deliveries started in June – of the 65 000 Polestars Herz has ordered for the next five years, some 13 000 per year. So far, that’s one of the largest single orders for electric cars ever made, and it will include other Polestar models, like the P3 and P4.
Polestar 5 performance GT
Polestar plans to launch three cars in the next three years, starting with Polestar 3. The next one, number 4, will be smaller and less expensive, but a luxurious sedan also lurks around the corner. This Polestar 5 will, at least visually, be narrowly based on the Precept concept car.
Polestar has previewed the final design of the Polestar 5 in a documentary series on YouTube. However, the vehicle shown remains very close to the Precept concept regarding the basic shape.
