Polestar Teases Three New Electric Models

For the longest time, Polestar has offered only one EV, the quirky 2 sedan. But that will soon change with three new models, which will showcase a new design direction and other innovations that will separate Polestar from its parent company, Volvo.

The first to arrive will be the Polestar 3 crossover, which is to be revealed in full this October, with production beginning in 2023. The teaser image shows a sleek, low-riding SUV with a sloping roofline and very short overhangs. Polestar boasts that the 3 will feature one of the best hands-free driving systems, thanks to a Luminar LiDAR sensor paired with a NVIDIA computer. The Polestar 3 is expected to compete in a very crowded segment, which currently includes the BMW iX, Lexus RZ, Audi Q4 E-Tron, and many others.

On the right of the 3 is the new Polestar 4, which is concealed under a thin sheet. This is not the first time we've seen this half-hidden coupe SUV, but it's the first time Polestar has released details regarding it. The Polestar 4 will essentially be a swoopier version of the 3, but a unique taillight signature indicates that it will go beyond simply having better aerodynamics than its more conventional counterpart. The 4 is slated for a 2023 launch, but Polestar hasn't told us when production will start.

Last, but definitely not least, the Polestar 5 will be a stylish four-dour grand tourer that has entered its advanced development stage. The image shows that it's almost identical to the mouth-watering Precept concept from 2020, with its dynamic character lines and sharp LED lighting. We will be able to see the 5 from all angles at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month, as an early prototype will be on display alongside the Polestar 2 BST Edition 270. The Polestar 5 will hit the road in 2024, competing with the likes of the Tesla Model S, Audi A6 E-Tron, and Lucid Air.

Polestar is growing rapidly as a company, and is currently present in 25 markets worldwide with around 130 retailers. The Swedish marque will be entering Italy and Israel in the second half of this year, with plans to sell its vehicles in 30 markets globally by the end of next year. As far as retailers go, the company will be opening new Polestar Space locations in Austin, Madrid, Reykjavík, London, Tel Aviv, Vancouver, Shenzhen, and many others to make 160 total retailers by the year's end.

What do you think of Polestar's expanded lineup?
