"Polestar 1 is ... a handsome GT with awesome technology packed into it", Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a statement. It will be called as the Polestar 1 and the production is expected to start by mid-2019. The mid-sized Polestar 2 will follow in late 2019 as a rival to the Tesla Model 3, while the Polestar 3 will be a larger SUV-style vehicle.
The Polestar 2 will be the first electric vehicle to come out of the Volvo Car Group, paving the way to a total of five fully electric models to come out of Polestar and Volvo between 2019 and 2021. A attractive GT with fantastic technology packed into it - a great start for our new Polestar brand.
For example, China plans to set goals for electric and plug-in hybrid cars to make up at least a fifth of local sales by 2025, with a staggered system of quotas beginning in 2018.

The Polestar 1 will be built at Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu, China.
Polestar 1 is based on Volvo's Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA) but approximately 50% is new and bespoke, created by Polestar's engineers.
Volvo and parent company Geely intend for Polestar and Volvo to collaborate and develop synergies that will benefit both.
