2024 Polestar 5: new photos and video...

Polestar has just released a new video showcasing the process of turning the gorgeous Precept Concept from 2020 into the 2024 Polestar 5 sedan.
The video itself is full of the usual PR BS. And borderline obnoxious at times.
Of course, telling us in many ways how Polestar is such a special company, etc...
Basically, saving the world.

But the video does show a lot of the upcoming sedan. And it will look great.
Sure, the car is still at least 2 years away, but it already looks like what a second-generation Tesla Model S should look like. If Tesla ever redesigns it.
Although, by 2024, the Polestar 5 will also be competing with another great-looking EV sedan, the Audi  A6 e-Tron.
And probably others.

Since the Polestar 2 already starts at $46 000, the 5 won't be cheap. Probably also competing with lower-end Lucid Air models.

Before the 5, will see a Polestar 4 SUV. And a smaller Polestar 3 SUV.

It's kind of strange for them to show us the model that will come in a couple of years. While keeping the one that comes out next year a secret.

Here are all the Polestar models planned so far. 
The (Discontinued) Polestar 1, the 2 sedan. Then the 3,4 and 5.

What is Polestar? Is it Volvo or another Chinese knockoff?

Looks way too much like a Tesla, however EV's rely on aerodynamics and regen for maximum range and efficiency, which means at a certain point, all EVs start looking similar. Looking forward to seeing more of Polestar.

I would love it if GM would show the forthcoming vehicles of each of its four U.S. brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC) under cloths and in a line of succession, like the one Polestar picture. It might remind older people of the days when the fall introductions of cars was a big deal, that dealers had the cars under cloths to keep them a surprise. For younger people, it would give them an idea of the basic shape of the future vehicles and allow them to debate what they might look like.
