Polestar 3 : Some Details Before Launch

The Polestar 3 SUV should be unveiled soon.

The manufacturer Polestar is still a young brand in the automotive world. Supported by Volvo and Geely, the electrified division – the Polestar 1 was a plug-in hybrid after all – has just added a single-engine variant of its sedan, the Polestar 2.

We also know that Polestar is currently preparing the arrival of a crossover simply called Polestar 3. So far, the only public information on this third model is its silhouette. Or, Car and Driver magazine spoke to Thomas Ingenlath, the CEO of Polestar, at the recent Motor Show in Munich, Germany.

The CEO confirmed first of all that the vehicle would be limited to two rows, a strategy which would allow its coupe-like styling to be retained, a strategy different from the future Volvo XC90 which will have three rows of seats. We can therefore speculate that the Polestar 3, whose dimensions to be similar to those of the imposing Volvo crossover, will be positioned “a little higher” in the ranks of the two Swedish brands.

The Polestar 3 will be assembled at the South Carolina plant, alongside the current S60 sedan and the next generation Volvo XC90.

Thomas Ingenlath also confirmed that the vehicle would be marketed with one or two electric motors, as is already the case for the Polestar 2.

Where it gets interesting is when taking a look at the future of the brand. Indeed, the big boss of Polestar is interested in putting the Precept prototype unveiled in 2020 into production. The impressive sedan-coupe notably showed what to expect from the brand’s future products in terms of design, but it also unveiled the potential of a true rival of the Tesla Model S.
