The official Volvo performance company and brand were founded in 1996 and in news released on the 17th of October 2017, they announced that the Polestar 1 had been manufactured. Polestar, a new Swedish performance brand revealed all stating its expansion with its product line-up at some pace, with a promise to certify the launch saying that three brand new models will be on the market within the next four years.
The Polestar 1
The company first revealed this car was set to roll off the production line in mid-2019. With this being Polestar’s debut, they’ve made it their priority to ensure that this new addition will include advanced technology and product offering benefits from synergies and economies of scale from Volvo Car Group. That being said, its set to accelerate design, development and production processes at a fraction of the time it takes other new entrants.
Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer of Polestar said “Polestar 1 is the first car to carry the Polestar on the bonnet. A beautiful GT with amazing technology packed into it – a great start for our new Polestar brand. All future cars from Polestar will feature a fully electric drivetrain, delivering on our brand vision of being the new standalone electric performance brand.”

Furthermore, the debut model will be a two-door, 2+2 seat Grand Tourer Coupe with an ‘Electric Performance Hybrid’ drivetrain. Including an internal combustion engine, and has a range of 150kms on pure electric power alone (the longest full electric range of any hybrid car on the market). All this glory will be built at the Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu, China and is due to be completed in mid – 2018.

The Polestar 2 and 3
With the Polestar 1 only coming in a left-hand drive, it’s good news for us Brits, as the Polestar 2 and 3 will be available on the right-hand drive! With Polestar announcing this decision, this reflects the fact that “the UK will be a massively important market for Polestar”, explained by Goodman.
Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Goodman confirmed that the second model will be on sale by 2020. It’s described to be a standard saloon rather than a 2+2 couple and instead of using a petrol-electric hybrid setup, it’ll be a pure electric vehicle (EV).
Following on from this, the 3rd model will be an all-electric SUV, which should arrive in 2021 with insiders sharing that both the two later models with look remarkably different from the 1.
So, stay tuned for more updates about this new and upcoming performance brand as it takes the limelight from other competitors in the electric/hybrid market. We can’t wait to see what Polestar has got up their sleeves in the next decade!
