Polestar 4 Performance SUV Makes North American Debut

Polestar 4 Hits Market with $64,900 CAD Starting Price

  • Polestar 4, bridging sedan and SUV designs, debuts in North America at the New York Auto Show.

  • Offers advanced aerodynamics, standard tech features, and starts at $64,900 CAD with up to 483 km range.

  • Manufacture to begin in South Korea by 2025, enriching Polestar’s lineup with a versatile electric SUV coupe.

Swedish electric vehicle brand Polestar unveiled its Polestar 4 performance electric SUV coupe on Wednesday at the 2024 New York International Auto Show, marking the model’s North American public debut.

The Polestar 4 slots between the company’s Polestar 2 sedan and Polestar 3 SUV, transforming the aerodynamics of a coupe with the interior space of an SUV into what Polestar calls “a new breed of SUV coupe.”

After its global premiere last year in Shanghai, the Polestar 4 went on sale in Europe and Australia in January. It will be available to order in North America from late April, with customer deliveries expected in Q4 2024.

The Polestar 4 features a low nose, retractable door handles, frameless windows and rear aero blades to maximize aerodynamics. Its rear windshield has been replaced by a high-definition screen showing a feed from a roof-mounted camera for better rearward visibility.

Standard equipment includes 20-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, a 360-degree camera, wireless phone charging and Google’s Android Automotive OS infotainment system with Google Assistant, Maps and Play Store.

The long-range single-motor rear-wheel drive version starts at $64,900 CAD, with an estimated 483 km EPA range from its 102-kWh battery pack. The dual motor all-wheel drive variant starts at $74,900 and has a 435 km range but can sprint from 0-100 kph in just 3.7 seconds.

Both pack up to 544 hp and 506 lb-ft torque from dual electric motors. DC fast charging runs at up to 200 kW.

A range of packs add features like driver aids, performance brakes and wheels, premium audio and upgraded seats. Prices top out at $87,500 for the dual motor with all available options.

Polestar plans to build the Polestar 4 at Renault’s Busan plant in South Korea from 2025 to supply North America and that market.

As Polestar expands from one to three models this year, the Polestar 4 electric performance SUV coupe brings another strong entry to the brand’s growing North American lineup.
