The Polestar lineup continues to expand, with the latest announcement of the company's first ever high-end SUV, the Polestar 3. The electric performance EV is set to make its world premiere in October 2022.
Polestar is no stranger to the premium category of automobiles, having launched its Polestar 1 luxury coupe in 2019, which was quickly followed up by the Polestar 2 raised fastback the year after. And it seems like the newly-announced Polestar 3 will be no different. It features dimensions that are comparable to the likes of the Porsche Cayenne, and will supposedly be demonstration of Polestar's performance heritage in a forward-thinking and all-electric package.
According to Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, "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. With this car, we bring the ‘sport’ back to the SUV, staying true to our performance roots.”
Thomas Ingenlath adds: “This is a major milestone for our company, one that boosts our growth trajectory and takes us into our next phase.”
The Polestar 3 will feature advanced technologies, such as autonomous highway piloting powered by LiDAR sensors from Luminar, and centralised computing power from NVIDIA. At launch, the premium SUV will feature a dual-motor drivetrain and a large battery, with a range target of over 600 km (WLTP).
Production will begin in 2023 in the company's USA and China factories, with a Singapore launch set for the second half of the year.
The electric car company is looking to launch one new model every year from 2022 to 2024, thus firmly solidifying its status as a serious EV player in the automotive industry. The Polestar 4 premium sports SUV will be unveiled in 2023, with the Polestar 5 luxury sports four-door grand tourer slated for a 2024 release.
This aggressive expansion comes as no surprise, as Polestar intends to expand its presence to 30 markets by the end of next year, and have plans to achieve a ten-fold increase in sales worldwide by end-2025.
