The Polestar O2 Concept Will Launch in 2026 as the Polestar 6

Polestar will introduce the O2 concept electric roadster to its lineup as the Polestar 6 in 2026.

  • Polestar showed the O2 concept in Los Angeles in March

  • Due to the response of the public, this model will become the Polestar 6

  • It will share its powertrain with the Polestar 5 sports sedan

Polestar has just announced it will produce the O2 concept as the Polestar 6, which will be a hard-top convertible sports car.

According to the automaker, the public’s response to this concept was so positive that it decided to add it to its regular lineup starting in 2026.

The long delay is due to the powertrain, which will be shared with the Polestar 5 sports sedan, which is itself supposed to be introduced in 2025.

This means that the roadster could have up to 884 horsepower and 900 newton-meters (663 lb-ft) of torque from the new motors designed in-house by Polestar. This could allow it to reach 250 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3,2 seconds.

In addition to the new motors, the Polestar 6 will use a new bonded aluminum platform similar to the one found under the Polestar 5 and it will feature an 800-volt battery architecture, unlike the current Polestar 2.

Since the concept already looked quite similar to the patent drawings for the Polestar 5, it is possible that only minimal changes will take place before the Polestar 6 is officially launched.

The electric roadster is already available for pre-order in every market where Polestar is present and the first customers will be able to choose the LA Concept Edition, which will be a limited edition with a run of 500 units only.

This model will only be offered in the same colour combination of light blue paint, white leather, and 21-inch wheels as the O2 concept.

More details such as the price and the electric range of this hard-top convertible roadster will be revealed over the next few years before the first units reach their buyers in 2026.
