Also amazing they will actually build a brand new coupe, in our current SUV crazy world.
So great news.
The Polestar One is some super high performance car. With a total of 600HP.
And an EV range of 93 miles.
That makes it the longest range of any plug in car. Which is great.
But Polestar plans only 500 units a year.
So this is basically a car for journalists to review. No one (or almost no one) will actually buy one.
The big news here is that Volvo will get a regular version of this car. Since there is no way they are spending huge amount of cash designing a brand new coupe for 500 units a year.
Plus, it looks 100% like a Volvo.
So basically we are looking at a coupe version of the gorgeous S90 sedan.
One that will compete with anything from the 4 series, A5 , C-Class and E-Class coupes.
If they can retain that 93 miles range for the Volvo plug in version (or close) this will be a great advantage over the competition.
As for Polestar, they are already planing Polestart 2 and Polestar 3. Both models will be 100% electric.
And both will start production in 2019 in a brand new Chinese factory.
If you like what you see, you can order it starting today.
The new factory will open in a few months. So cars should be delivered in 2018.
Which is great.
And here is what I had on this site a while ago. Predicting an eventual C90, coupe version of the S90.
Looks like the real thing went in an even sportier direction.
Even closer to the original Coupe concept.
