Polestar Looking to Supply Powertrains to Other Automakers

Polestar could become a provider of premium EVs as well as powerful and sophisticated powertrains


  • Polestar has three new models on the way in the next three years.

  • They are developing a 603-horsepower electric motor.

  • As well, they are working on an 800-volt bidirectional battery pack.


Polestar is another small-ish automaker that is heavily invested in EVs. In the next three years, they will launch three new vehicles including the P3 and the Precept. The former will be powered by a new high-output powertrain, and it could become available to other automakers.

The idea behind “sharing” powertrains is simple: It will help Polestar recoup some of its R&D investment dollars. This new P10 electric motor is said to develop 603-horsepower (450 kW) and is fed by an 800-volt bidirectional battery pack. On the future P3, when combined with a front motor, the total system output will be a staggering 650 kW, or 872 horsepower.

Polestar 3 : Some Details Before Launch

“A top-of-the-line powertrain is simply part of our performance brand,” CEO Thomas Ingenlath shared with Automotive News. “There [isn’t], at least not to my knowledge, any electric motor with that power density on the market yet. I’m not talking about super exotic vehicles, but about mass-produced cars.”

The P10 will not initially be offered with the P3 but Ingenlath says that “This is a highlight that we will save for a little later than the start of production.”
