The Production Version of the Polestar 5 Might have been Revealed in Patent Drawings

Patent drawings might have revealed the final design of the 2024 Polestar 5 long before its official launch.

  • The Polestar 5 was previewed by the Precept concept

  • The drawings appear to have all of the elements of a production vehicle

  • This sports sedan will be competing with the Porsche Taycan and the Tesla Model S

Polestar is working on an electric sports sedan based on the Precept Concept which will be sold as the Polestar 5 starting in 2024.

European patent office (EUIPO) drawings might have revealed the final look of the production version ahead of its official launch.

In those drawings, the vehicle is easily recognizable as a version of the Precept, but it features all of the elements that are expected on a production vehicle and a few detail changes.

Some of these changes include the conventional exterior mirrors that replace the camera units seen on the prototype and the rear door which open normally instead of the rearward opening doors of the Precept.

The bulge on the front of the roof, which housed the lidar system on the concept is also gone, but since the automaker said the Polestar 5 will be available with this technology, this might be a sign that the engineers managed to integrate it better.

The front end seen in the drawings is very similar to the Precept since the headlamps remain divided into an upper and a lower part, the latter of which seems to include the low beams and the high beams. In the center of the bumper, there seems to be a small camera that is likely part of a 360-degree surround view system and the lower part of the fascia is occupied by an opening that will probably provide cooling to the motors and brakes.

The side profile of the production version is very similar to the concept and the most notable difference is the presence of the charge port on the front fender, just before the driver’s door.

From the rear, the changes are again minimal and the Polestar 5 keeps the same design for the lightbar and rear bumper. Another similar detail is the rear window which seems to be integrated into the glass roof.

Few mechanical details are known about the Polestar 5 yet, but the automaker confirmed it will be built on a new platform that will be exclusive to the brand, a first since the three other Polestar models that will be on sale by 2024 will share their platform with Volvo and Geely models, Polestar’s two parent companies.

According to the automaker, this model will feature a very rigid chassis and more powerful motors in order to compete with the Porsche Taycan and the Tesla Model S.

Since the Polestar 5 will be a 2024 model year vehicle, it is expected to be launched towards the end of next year.
