The Polestar 4 sits between the 2 and 3 size-wise in the automaker’s lineup.
It’s the fastest production Polestar vehicle to date.
The luxury electric vehicle market has just gotten a little more stylish with the introduction of the Polestar 4. The second SUV in Polestar’s line-up, this electric performance SUV coupé is equal parts design and functionality. Offering the perfect blend of the aerodynamics of a coupé and the space of an SUV, the Polestar 4 is a brand-new breed of vehicle. Bringing to the production world design cues from their concept cars, this SUV is not only stylish but also the fastest Polestar production car to date.
The first thing that strikes you upon seeing the Polestar 4 is its exquisite design. The vehicle embodies the future and has a unique design trapezoidal theme at both the front and rear ends, with a smoother body design for improved aerodynamics. The overall design theme harks back to the sublime Polestar Precept concept car and so far, we can’t stop scrolling through the image gallery.
The Polestar 4 is a D-segment (large midsize) SUV coupé with a large body and a long, 2,999 mm wheelbase. It is constructed on the premium Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) developed by Geely Holding. The vehicle’s dimensions are 4,839 mm in overall length, 2,139 mm in width, and 1,544 mm in height. Due to its generous dimensions, the interior space is especially lavish, which is particularly noticeable in the rear. The seats have a reclining feature that creates an intimate atmosphere around the occupants.
The Polestar 4 was designed to provide its passengers with complete comfort by offering ample space, and comfortable seats. The cabin features a minimum of clutter with a 10.2-inch digital instrument panel and a large 15.4-inch central touchscreen infotainment system. As we’ve come to expect from Polestar, the 4 is upholstered in sustainable and recycled materials. There is also ample space for luggage in the rear, making the Polestar 4 ideal for those looking to travel long distances.
“With Polestar 4 we have taken a fundamental new approach to SUV coupé design. Rather than simply modifying an existing SUV, giving it a faster roofline and as a result, compromising elements like rear headroom and comfort, we have designed Polestar 4 from the ground up as a new breed of SUV coupé that celebrates rear occupant comfort and experience,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.
Beneath the hood lies an all-electric powertrain that consists of either is a single rear or a dual-motor layout. They are powered by a 102-kWh battery is fitted to both long-range versions. Single motor versions offer up to 200 kW (272 hp) and 343 Nm (253 lb.-ft.). With dual motors, the output is rated at an impressive 400 kW (544 hp) and 686 Nm (506 lb.-ft.) of torque. Thanks to this power, the Polestar 4 is the fastest production car the brand has developed to date. The 0-100 km/h sprint can be completed in just 3.8 seconds.
All other features also impress. The preliminary range target for the single motor 4 is of up to 600 km WLTP and with dual motors, of up to 560 km WLTP, numbers that should translate into 550 and 500 km EPA range respectively. As well, the Polestar 4 includes both 200 kW DC and 22 KW AC charging options, while the charge lid is motorized. The vehicle also features bi-directional charging functionality, with vehicle-to-load (V2L) capability at launch. Finally, a heat pump is fitted as standard.
The Polestar 4 comes equipped with a host of advanced safety and convenience features, such as SuperVision Advanced Driver Assistance System from Mobileye which works in concert with twelve cameras, one radar and twelve ultrasonic sensors.
Set to be available for purchase in early 2024, the Polestar 4 is positioned between the Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 in terms of size and price. Although pricing has yet to be announced, indicative launch pricing will be from about $60,000 USD.
