Polestar 6 Concept BST debuts at Goodwood

Chinese car manufacturing group Geely’s Polestar daughter will again be very present at the coming Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s not only showing its expanded model line-up with the new Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 joining the Polestar 2.

The star of the show is the Polestar 6 Concept BST, making its global debut at the famous motoring festival. In the first glance paddock the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 are joined by the Polestar 6 Concept, marking the dynamic debut for the electric roadster concept.

Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar: “Now we are a brand with three models in production. It’s great to see them together for the first time at a global event. Goodwood Festival of Speed is full of the most exciting cars and the most enthusiastic crowds, so it’s the perfect place for us to tease our Polestar Concept BST.”

“This car demonstrates how far we can push our performance brand. Polestar turned up to 11, if you will, and a demonstration of how we could apply the BST formula to our line-up in the future,” he added.

Electric roadster

The Polestar Concept BST features bespoke bodywork, finished in a classic motorsport silver, with flared arches, extra wide track, and 22-inch forged alloy wheels. An aerodynamically optimized hood, with its special vented design, is framed by an aggressive front splitter. The motorsport theme continues at the rear with an extreme rear wing and a design completed by bespoke racing-livery-inspired graphics.

The Polestar 6 Concept BST, located in the first-glance paddock, will be demonstrated driving up the 1.2-mile-long Hillclimb in front of the festival’s crowds. Engineered alongside the Polestar 5 and using its bespoke bonded aluminum Polestar Performance Architecture (PPA) platform, the Polestar 6 wants to represent the pinnacle of the current Polestar line-up.

On the main Polestar stand, the Polestar Concept BST is joined by the Polestar 2 and the two new luxury electric performance SUVs, Polestar 3 and Polestar 4. Electric Avenue hosts the Polestar 4 this year, and consumers can experience Polestar models for themselves on a test drive along Molecomb Drive within the famous Goodwood estate by signing up at the stand.

Five ‘performance EVs’

Polestar plans to have a line-up of five ‘performance EVs’ by 2026. Polestar 2, the electric performance fastback launched in 2019, is well-known. Now there is Polestar 3, the ‘SUV for the electric age’ and Volvo EX90 brother, launched in late 2022.

Polestar 4, the SUV coupé without a rear window, is now coming steadily on the market in  2024. Polestar 5, an electric four-door GT, and Polestar 6, an electric roadster, are coming soon.
