Polestar Celebrates Polestar 1 End Of Production With A Special Edition

Polestar’s halo car will bow out covered in gold


  • The exterior will be painted matte gold.

  • The cabin will feature matching gold stitching.

  • Only 25 will be built.


Polestar, as a nearly fully independent brand, already has two impressive offerings. While the Polestar 2 continues to enjoy praise, the flagship Polestar 1 will see its production end. But a hyper-powerful hybrid won’t go away unnoticed.

Only 25 of the Special Edition Polestar 1 will be built. And they will get noticed. Still powered by its 609 horsepower and 1,000 Nm (738 lb.-ft.) of torque, every unit will be painted bespoke matte gold with matching calipers and superb black wheels. The cabin will feature matching gold stitching throughout.

“It’s hard to believe that our beautiful halo car comes to the end of its production life later this year,” comments Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “We pushed boundaries with this car, not only in terms of engineering but also in its design and execution. Polestar 1 set the tone for our brand and its genes are evident in Polestar 2 – as they will be in our future cars to come.”

“This car was not designed to fit into a box,” elaborates Thomas Ingenlath. “We didn’t design it to compete with other cars, and neither did we design it to suit a specific target customer. Polestar 1 was about pushing our own boundaries, exploring a new era for Polestar, and launching the brand with a strong statement – and it’s done a great job of capturing the hearts and minds of fans, press, and the lucky customers who own one.”
