Polestar 3 Electric Crossover Coming On October 12 With 510 HP

Polestar has announced that its third model, aptly named the 3, will make its official debut on October 12. We've already seen a few glimpses of the all-electric crossover, which will use a dual-motor layout generating up to 380 kW (510 hp) of power. The full unveiling will be hosted by Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath at a special event in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Polestar 3 will be the automaker's first SUV model ever, displaying a major emphasis on performance. It will share its platform with the next-generation Volvo XC90, and will also use the midsize crossover's all-new advanced driving systems. But according to Polestar, being a performance crossover doesn't just translate to straight-line speed, so the 3 will offer a standard dual-chamber air suspension with adaptive dampers, which also enables the driver to select between either sport or comfort modes.

The launch model will feature a rear-biased dual-motor powertrain with electric torque vectoring on the rear motor via a dual-clutch system. There will also be an optional Performance Pack that will deliver a max output of 510 horsepower and 671 lb-ft of torque, as well as some fancy gold design touches inside and out.

Are you pumped up for Polestar's first SUV, or do crossovers simply bore you?
