Polestar is working on 3 new models to expand its lineup which now only consists of the Polestar 2 compact sedan.

The company is decidedly going for a sportier image that it currently has, since it wants its new models to compete with the entries made by Tesla and Porsche.

The Polestar 3 is set to go on sale in 2022 and a few details are known about it, notably that it will be a luxury electric SUV that will be built in Volvo’s South Carolina factory, alongside the next generation of the Volvo XC90.
