Polestar also announced its plan to launch a mid-sized all-electric SUV named the Polestar 3 after the Polestar 2, completing this way the first phase of the company's product roll out. Thus, the new auto from Polestar 1 will begin to realize that promise. Polestar 1 measures 4,500 mm in length and compared to the Volvo S90, the wheelbase is 320 mm less and the rear has been shortened by 200 mm.
Things could change in the future as Polestar has hinted it might eventually decide to sell the auto in the traditional sense of the word. Polestar hasn't made a decision about how these will be distributed, but chances are 300 will be sold in China, where the vehicle is going to be produced at a new factory set to be inaugurated in Chengdu by mid-2018. From 2017 onward, Polestar will be a separate company in the Volvo group that will be focused on design and production of high performance electric cars. While the Polestar 1 won't likely be the sleekest, most attractive GT on the highway at any given moment, we think Polestar has done a good job of working Volvo's most stylish, modern design cues into a smaller, sportier package, creating a handsome performance flagship.
China has said it wants electric and plug-in hybrid cars to make up at least a fifth of Chinese auto sales by 2025, spurring a raft of investment plans from global automakers in electric vehicles, particularly new joint ventures with Chinese firms. "We cannot build up (for example) the charging infrastructure in China; developing the tech, the politicians can't do either", he said. Cars will be ordered 100% online and offered on a two- or three-year subscription basis. Polestar will also move away from today's traditional ownership model. The service will have no deposit and will included delivery, maintenance, insurance and the option of using other Polestar or Volvo models for a flat monthly fee.
Polestar will also open dedicated spaces, that will give a preview, test drive and demonstrate the Polestar cars.
