Polestar Gets World Identifier Number and Production Centre

Polestar cements its position as a stand-alone manufacturer and confirmed the opening of its recent production centre.

Polestar is real. The former Volvo performance arm is now its own thing and recently received its World Identifier Number. It also opened its first production facility in Chengdu China to begin production of the new Polestar 1.

Once used to designate the fastest Volvo models including the V60 Polestar and currently still used on the S60 and XC60, Polestar is now a stand-alone manufacturer set on building high-end electrified vehicles. The Polestar 1 with 600 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque will be its first model.

The Polestar 2 unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show should be its second with production slated to begin at another Chinese factory in 2020.

“We promised we would have our first production facility built in 2019, we promised cars would be delivered to customers this year, and we promised we would do things differently – once again we are delivering on our promises. This is a hugely proud moment for the whole team at Polestar,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

The new Polestar production centre will strive to be one of the most efficient and environmentally responsible car factories in China according to the company’s press release. The centre will produce 500 Polestar 1 models per year with a three-year production run already planned.
