Polestar 1 unveiled | New Release

Polestar 1 OFFICIALLY revealed- and it IS a STUNNING 600bhp Volvo Coupe

Volvo just shared details on the Polestar 1, the first model from their new performance electric brand. Now, someone has chose to explore the idea of a dreamy convertible by chopping off the fixed metal roof.

"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 new hybrid-only start-up offshoot from Volvo chose to launch itself into the fray this week not with an outlandish SUV concept vehicle, or a me-too crossover design study, but an extremely elegant two-door coupe.

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.

This is where future Polestar customers can interact with products and the brand. Cars will be ordered 100 per cent online and offered on a two or three year subscription basis.

Polestar issued a statement, saying: 'The flat rate subscription means that having a Polestar auto becomes a hassle free experience for the customer. Phone-As-Key technology will allow the owner to share a virtual key with a third party, and also provide access to other on-demand features. This concierge service ensures that the customer only needs to focus on the enjoyment of driving.
