Default Polestar 1

Polestar’s First Model As A Standalone Brand Could Be A “600 bhp Coupe”



The definition of a coupe, in this particular day and age of car design, is murkier than the River Thames. The extent of this controversy goes a long and sinuous way, with some automakers slapping the “coupe” name on four- and five-door automobiles as a way to suggest attributes such as style and performance.
11 photos



So when it came to our attention that Polestar intends to offer a “600 bhp coupe” as its first-ever model, the plot thickened. From Autocar: “Volvo’s relaunched Polestar division is considering at least one, and possibly two, bespoke performance models with their own body styles.”

First of all, let’s talk powertrain. The MEP toolkit combined with the SPA platform for mid-sized vehicles is good for outputs of up to 603 horsepower (612 PS / 450 kW). Reports on Volvo’s electrification-related ambitions also suggest that battery capacity will be capped at 100 kWh, which is what Tesla offers today in the full-sized Model S and Model X. Except, Polestar will not offer full-on EVs in the first instance, but more on that later in the story.

Regarding the CMA platform, which will underpin the next generation of 40 Series models, common sense dictates Polestar can hardly make a case for a performance-oriented electric vehicle based on these underpinnings, chiefly because the Volvo-badged Compact Module Architecture EV coming in 2019 is a front-wheel-drive affair. The SPA platform of the 90 and 60 Series vehicles, meanwhile, is adaptable for all-wheel-drive applications.

While Polestar intends to give it all in virtually “all market segments” with standalone models derived from existing Volvo vehicles, there’s no mistaking the company’s first model will not be based on the Compact Module Architecture. Therefore, expect an electric vehicle that will range in size from the second-gen X60 compact luxury crossover to the mid-sized XC90.

A coupe-ified interpretation of the S90 would be wicked, as would a two-/three-door take on the V90. In the eventuality Polestar will play its cards as safely as possible, the most likely outcome for a first model is some sort of utility vehicle with a sloping roofline and coupe-inspired aesthetics. Think BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and the all-new Range Rover Velar.

As highlighted in autoevolution’s story on Polestar going standalone, the first Polestar models will be plug-in hybrids based on Volvo's T8 Twin Engine powertrain. All-electric vehicles will follow soon after that.

Polestar teaser puzzle hints at standalone coupe









The mystery model will be revealed later this month.
Volvo's Polestar division has released a teaser puzzle for its upcoming mystery model, confirmed for an official debut later this month.

The Polestarcars Instagram account posted a handful of numbered close-up photos that can be arranged for a slightly better look at the upcoming car.

The taillights and lower bumper closely resemble the unique styling of Volvo's Concept Coupe, providing more evidence that the 2013 design study has been dusted off to help launch Polestar as a dedicated performance brand.

Rumors suggest the production model will be powered by a plug-in hybrid system with up to 600 horsepower.

Full details will be announced on October 17.

Volvo's Polestar teases first standalone model [Video]









Polestar will launch its first standalone model on October 17.
Polestar, Volvo's performance division, has released a new teaser video ahead of the sub-brand's first model launch later this month.


As with most teaser videos, Polestar's doesn't give away too much, but the clip appears to show a vehicle with just two doors. Previous rumors have indicated that Polestar's first standalone vehicle would be a coupe not offered under the standard Volvo umbrella.
Polestar also confirmed that it will be positioned as an "Electric Performance" brand. However, that doesn't mean Polestar products will be full electrics; the standalone division is expected to use hybrid and plug-in hybrid systems, at least initially.
The first Polestar coupe is tipped to use a plug-in hybrid drivetrain with up to 600 horsepower on tap. That should be enough firepower to allow Polestar to compete with the AMGs and Ms of the world.

Polestar 1 coming together before reveal at Shanghai Auto Show






Until July 2017 Polestar served as Volvo's in-house performance brand. That month, the Swedish mothership spun off its cyan-hued subsidiary into a distinct division billed as "a new separately-branded electrified global high performance car company." On September 25, Polestar uploaded a black square to its Instagram page with two words: The End. One week later, another black square appeared bearing only a date: 17.10.17 (that's October 17 to US folks). The next day, Polestar began uploading a series of detail shots of what will be its first car as a standalone operation, the Polestar 1. Put all the Instagram pieces together like Autocar magazine did (plus a few other images we didn't see on the feed), and you get the image above.

The white wonder - maybe a coupe, maybe not - will be revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show on October 17. A seriously handsome teaser, the rear end bears welcome resemblance to the gorgeous Volvo Concept Coupe revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Thomas Ingenlath, who designed the Volvo Concept Coupe, now fills the role of Polestar CEO, and we can only hope he brought the rest of his design with him. In Frankfurt, Volvo claimed its plug-in hybrid, S60-based concept to be good for roughly 400 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque.

Earlier this year, some expected Polestar to devote itself to "high-performance electric cars," yet Volvo's statement about the spinoff used the word "electrified." That, combined with the tailpipes on the teaser, would appear to indicate a robust hybrid in the works: consensus has gathered around a plug-in hybrid with 2.0-liter T8 Twin-Engine powertrain pushing 600 horsepower. Polestar's statements about the Polestar 1, made in the teaser video below, want us to know that there won't be any bluff or guff between car, driver, and road. That's to be expected from a company that created its first two highly-lauded vehicles by letting in-house racing driver Robert Dahlgren spec performance and parts to his liking, giving him no more instruction than, "Use your imagination. Just try to make it as fun as possible." Come on Shanghai. This should be good.

1 of 18Volvo's Polestar EV sub-brand unveiled the Polestar 1




























Meet the Polestar 1 performance plug-in hybrid

Volvo intends Polestar to be a new electric-performance brand, and we say this is a good start






Polestar, Volvo Car Group’s performance offshoot, just unveiled its future as a stand-alone EV performance brand, confirming plans for its first three models as well as a new purpose-built production facility in Chengdu, China.
First up is the Polestar 1, a hybrid coupe looking like a cross between a two-door S90 and the Concept Coupe Volvo showed in Frankfurt. The 1 is set to roll off the line in mid-2019. Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath says the coupe has “amazing technology packed into it,” and calls it “a great start for our new Polestar brand.” A 34-kWh battery pack feeds two electric motors combining with a 2.0-liter four. There’s 218 hp from the motors and 382 hp from the 2.0-liter, so we’re looking at 600 hp and a whopping 737 lb-ft. Volvo says the car should have a 90-mile range on electric power alone but didn’t give 0-60 times or top speed.
The coupe rides on Volvo’s Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA), also underpinning the XC90, XC60, and S- and V90s. Volvo says about half of SPA is unique to the new car, including the new Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension (CESi). What’s that? According to Polestar, it works like this: Each shock has an electronic valve, constantly monitoring driver inputs and road conditions, and reacting in two milliseconds as needed, though the driver can make adjustments to fine-tune it. The coupe also has a 12-inch shorter wheelbase than other SPA-based cars.

The coupe shares its platform with larger Volvo models like the XC90.





On our site, we said, “If you want Scandinavian sanctuary in a luxury sedan, there aren’t a lot of options. If Swedish, Italian, Korean or American matters not a whit, the S90 still merits ...



The body is carbon fiber, cutting weight and according to Volvo improving torsional stiffness 45 percent. The car also uses a double electric rear axle, enabling torque vectoring.
Polestar plans to build 500 coupes a year. Next up is Polestar 2, a pure EV starting production later in 2019. The midsize sedan, more of a volume player, is set to compete with likes of the Tesla Model 3. The inevitable SUV, called Polestar 3, comes after that.
Polestar also said it is moving away from a traditional ownership model (hello, Tesla). Cars are ordered online only on a two- or three-year subscription basis. The zero-deposit, all-inclusive subscription includes a pickup and delivery service. Customers can also rent other Volvos and/or Polestars, all in one monthly payment. The idea, the company says, is as hassle-free customer experience as possible. Polestar is also going to have stand-alone showrooms for you tire kickers.
The Polestar 1’s order books opened today (Oct. 17, 2017). Operators are standing by.

Polestar plans to build just 500 of these per year, making them quite an exclusive offering.

Polestars to be made in China, rival Teslas


Polestar 1
Enlarge Photo

Volvo in-house tuner Polestar has been morphed into a standalone brand for high-performance electrified cars and on Tuesday we saw its first model, aptly named the Polestar 1, unveiled to the world in Shanghai.
The Chinese metropolis is a fitting location for the debut of Polestar’s first car as China is very much the brand’s home, despite the Swedish roots.
Polestar, which together with Volvo is owned by China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, is constructing a state-of-the-art development and production facility in Chengdu, China (it’s where Volvo already has a plant). As per the rules for producing cars in China, the plant will be run by a joint venture between Polestar and two Chinese companies within Zhejiang Geely.

The plant, which will be operational in 2019 and run on 100 percent renewables, makes sense having its location in China. The country is set to quickly become the world’s largest market for hybrids and electric cars because of government mandates aimed at curbing pollution levels.
For example, China plans to set goals for electric and plug-in hybrid cars to make up at least a fifth of local sales by 2025, with a staggered system of quotas beginning in 2018. In addition, all major automakers must offer at least one electric car for sale by 2019. The country is also considering a total ban on cars powered solely by gasoline or diesel engines.
To fully capitalize on this, the Polestar 1 will be followed quickly by higher-volume electric cars, turning Polestar into a rival to Tesla.

The Polestar 1 will arrive in 2019, with numbers to be capped at just 500 units per year due to its finicky carbon fiber-intensive production process. In 2020, Polestar will launch the Polestar 2, a small electric sedan that will challenge the Tesla Model 3. The car will likely be related to Volvo’s next-generation S60, just as the Polestar 1 is related to Volvo’s S90—around 50 percent of the components are common.
Following the Polestar 2 will be—you guessed it—a Polestar 3. This will be an SUV likely related to the Volvo XC60 or XC90. All Polestar will say is that the Polestar 3 will be positioned above the Polestar 2 in terms of volume and pricing. If it’s XC60-based, you’re looking at a potential Tesla Model Y rival. An XC90-based model would target Tesla’s Model X. The Polestar 3 will be introduced within the next four years.
Volvo fans shouldn’t be too bummed by Polestar’s transition to a standalone brand. There will still be Polestar-tuned Volvos like the brilliant S60 and V60 Polestar. Only now the cars will be marketed under the Polestar Engineered label.

Polestar 2 to take on Model 3 in 2019, followed by electric SUV









The standalone brand will shift away from the traditional ownership model, instead embracing online ordering and a subscription plan with Phone-As-Key technology for easy sharing.
Volvo Cars and parent Geely Holding have outlined an ambitious expansion plan for Polestar, the newly formed standalone brand for performance electrified vehicles.


The Polestar 1 inaugurates the marque as a halo car, serving a niche market for a large 2+2 plug-in hybrid coupe with 600 horsepower and more than 90 miles of all-electric range.
The company plans to immediately move downmarket with the Polestar 2, an all-electric midsize car that aims to take on the Tesla Model 3 when it arrives in 2019.
"The initial phase of the Polestar product rollout will then be completed by the subsequent arrival of a larger SUV-style BEV, the Polestar 3, which will create a modern expression of electric performance and driving dynamics," the company says.
The brand will attempt to eschew the traditional sales/ownership model, instead embracing online ordering and subscription-based distribution with zero deposit and pickup and delivery servicing. The approach limits the need for dedicated storefronts, however a network of 'Polestar Spaces' will be established for customers who appreciate in-person interaction with products.



Polestar will receive around $756 million in funding to support its initial expansion phase, including a dedicated manufacturing facility in Chengdu, China.
"With China as a driving force behind the electrification of the global car industry, Polestar will spearhead the development of new technologies and enhance Volvo Cars' leadership within electrification and connectivity," Volvo says. "Polestar will also benefit from having privileged access to Volvo's global and well-established manufacturing standards and expertise as it establishes its own manufacturing operations in Chengdu."
The Polestar 2 will represent the group's first all-electric vehicle, one of five Polestar- or Volvo-branded EVs that are on the product roadmap from 2019 through 2021.

Here Are More Details And Live Pictures Of The Polestar 1 But There Are Still Lots Of Questions






I’m here in Shanghai, marveling at all the bewildering makes of cars (what’s the one with the starfish badge? The horse head? The one that looks like the Starfleet insignia? More on that soon!) and scrutinizing the Polestar 1 in more detail. Here are the biggest questions I have and the best answers I got from the designers, engineers, and executives I spoke with to get more information about the striking-looking hybrid GT.

I got a mix of answers, honest admissions of ignorance, and the default carmaker mantra of “we can’t comment on future products or plans” from them, though I’d tried my best.
Let’s get started!
How much will the monthly subscription be?

Nobody knows. I’m told they’re figuring it out now, but it’s complicated, as they’re factoring in insurance, maintenance, concierge services, market tolerance, and all that. No one would even venture a ballpark figure.



If you managed to get Polestar to sell you one, how much would it cost?

Polestar COO John Goodman made an offhand remark about this, saying, “If someone wants to give us $100-X-thousand dollars, we’ll find a way.” So, based on this, we can see that Polestar values the car at something around $100,000. Given the nature of the car, this isn’t too surprising.
How will the 500 cars per year be distributed?




It’s not decided, but it looks like 100 to America, 100 to Europe, and 300 to China. There’s only six countries that will get the Polestar 1: China, the United States, Sweden, Norway, Germany, and the Netherlands. There’s no plans for a right-hand-drive version.
Is Volvo planning on developing their own charging network for when the all-electric Polestars are released?

Nope.
Do I think Volvo just hoping someone will come up with a good charging network in time is a good idea?

Nope.



They say the Polestar brand will “appeal to the automotive aficionado.” What’s that mean for autonomy?

The Polestar 2 (the likely Tesla Model 3 competitor) will have Volvo’s semi-autonomous technology, but the Polestar 1 is more of a driver’s car. That’s good to hear!
What parts of the Polestar 1's design most reminds the lead exterior designer of a Volvo P1800?



The way the door handle blends into the rear fender crease, like the P1800's door handle blended into the chrome fender trim. Also, the greenhouse shape.
Wouldn’t it be cool if the rear quarter window retracted down so the car would be a true, pillar-less hardtop convertible?

Yes. The designers told me they talked about that a lot, but they couldn’t pull it off.



Is the lead exterior designer excited that he’s in the running for a 2018 Markie award for Excellence in Side Marker Light design?

Are you kidding? Of course he is. I’ll have much more about this soon.


Are there any egregious fake vents on the Polestar 1?

Surprisingly, no. They all seem to actually do something.
What transmission does the 2-liter gasoline engine use?

Volvo’s 8-speed automatic. The rear electric motors use a planetary transmission.




What did the drivetrain engineer say when I asked about the ability to relocate the battery packs on this platform?

“I can’t comment on that.”
What did the drivetrain engineer say when I asked about using the torque vectoring to do things like help with parallel parking and other rear-steering assist tasks?

“I can’t comment on that.”
What did the drivetrain engineer say when I asked if he liked Torx screws?

“I can’t comment on that.”



What’s the deal with the little glowing star that’s reflected in the glass roof?

It’s just sort of cool.



What’s the purpose of the exposed panel showing those orange cables in the trunk other than looking cool?

They help explain why the trunk is so strangely shallow. But the rear seatback folds into a luggage platform, so that helps a bit.



Can an actual adult human fit in the back seat?

No. But I could.
What was the response when asked if the half-vinyl top version would have Landau bars or opera lights?

A quick, harsh slap, followed by a whispered “I never liked you.”

Polestar 1 was originally a flagship Volvo coupe






Polestar 1
Enlarge Photo

Former Volvo tuner Polestar on Tuesday unveiled its first car, the aptly named Polestar 1, but if you’re thinking you've seen the design before, it’s because you have.
Yes, the Polestar 1 is just a slightly massaged version of Volvo’s Concept Coupe which was presented at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show to introduce Volvo's current design language.
Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo’s former design chief who is now in charge of Polestar, explained that following the positive response to the concept Volvo decided to put it into production. Ingenlath couldn’t be happier as he was the person who designed it.
The Volvo coupe was essentially going to be an S90 with the rear doors removed. It might have even been called a C90.

However, two years ago, Ingenlath explained, Volvo CEO Håkan Samuelsson approached him and asked whether the car could ditch its Volvo logo and be sold as a standalone Polestar model. He was reluctant at first. After all, the car’s lines took inspiration from a legendary Volvo, the P1800 of the 1960s.
But then Polestar got to work, stiffening the body with carbon fiber and augmenting Volvo's T8 Twin Engine powertrain with an additional electric motor.
After Ingenlath drove a prototype and experienced the performance that was on offer from its 600-horsepower plug-in hybrid powertrain, he was convinced the car was much more than just a 2-door S90 (the two still share around 50 percent of their parts). It was a proper Polestar.
Production of the Polestar 1 will commence at a new plant in China in 2019. You won’t be able to buy one, though. Instead, the car will be offered exclusively through a subscription service similar to the recently announced Care by Volvo program. There will be the choice of 2- or 3-year plans, after which the car is returned to Polestar, refurbished and then offered via a secondary subscription.

Polestar starts construction of plant in China






Polestar, formerly Volvo's in-house tuner, will forge ahead as a standalone brand within Volvo Cars Group. On Monday, the brand announced it broke ground on its first manufacturing facility in Chengdu, China. It will be the assembly plant for all future Polestar models.
Volvo already has a plant in Chengdu and the new plant will follow typical Chinese government regulations for vehicle production. Polestar and Volvo Cars Group will build the vehicles in a joint-venture between two Zhejiang Geely Holding Group companies. Geely owns Volvo Cars Group as well.
Polestar said in the announcement that the state-of-the-art facility will be the most environmentally-responsible car factory in China and one of the greenest vehicle production facilities in the world. The brand targets Gold status in the globally recognized LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) ratings once it completes construction.
Not only will the new Chengdu facility build Polestars, it will include a customer experience center with product experts on hand and a customer test track. The track will let customers—or should we say "subscribers"—push the brand's vehicles to their limits in safe conditions.

Polestar 1

Polestar's first car, the Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid sport coupe, will arrive with 600 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque. It promises 93 miles of all-electric range as well.
The carbon-fiber-bodied car will boast a unique ownership model. Polestar will sell the car via subscriptions for two or three years. The brand says its service will be all inclusive and no down payment will be necessary—just monthly payments.
Construction of the plant should be complete in mid-2018, and Polestar previously said it will be entirely operational in 2019. It will build just 500 Polestar 1 plug-in hybrids per year.

Polestar Plans To Introduce Four Models In The Next Three Years





Polestar is going at it full-steam – or with a full charge, we should say. Not only is it launching as a stand-alone brand, it's also rethinking the ownership experience, but it's launching a whole raft of new products – the scope of which we're just beginning to see now.

According to Motor Trend, Volvo's newly emancipated electric performance division is preparing to roll out not one, not two, but four models all within the next three years.

First up is the Polestar 1 we've already seen: a plug-in hybrid luxury performance coupe that looks like a sleeker, more futuristic version of the new Volvo S90. That's set to launch by the end of next year.

Motor Trend reports that the Polestar 2 will arrive by the end of 2019 as an all-electric midsize sedan to take on the Tesla Model 3. After that, we're told to expect the Polestar 3 to launch early in 2020 as an electric crossover, with an as-yet undisclosed Polestar 4 to follow later in 2020. Word has it that model could take the form of a convertible, likely closely based on the Polestar 1.

What of the Polestar-branded performance Volvo's we've seen to date, you wonder? Those will continue, with performance packages offered straight from the Volvo factory (instead of as dealer-installed equipment) and the occasional full-on performance vehicle (like the S60/V60 Polestar) to pop up from time to time. But Polestar's main focus will remain on its own dedicated line of electrified vehicles.

Just how we'll acquire them is still a matter of discussion. The initial idea is to pursue a subscription model almost exclusively, but strategists will watch to see how the Care by Volvo model is adapted (to say nothing of rivals like Book by Cadillac, Porsche Passport, and Lincoln's forthcoming pilot as well.)

What Will Polestar Do Next After Its 2020 Crossover? Here's The Answer




A couple of months ago Polestar revealed its first model, conveniently called the Polestar 1. Although it’s a hybrid with a bonkers combined total of 600 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque, the next Polestars will be all-electric. The Polestar 2 will be a mid-size sedan targeting the Tesla Model 3, while the Polestar 3 will be a crossover. The latter is due to arrive in 2020, but will come next? Yes, it’ll be called the Polestar 4 (take your genius pill this morning?) but which body style has been decided upon? According to Motor Trend, the Polestar 4 will be a convertible.



Polestar, formerly Volvo’s performance division, is now a standalone brand, though, like Volvo and Lotus, its parent company is Geely. While an official announcement has yet to be made, Motor Trend has learned that Polestar has already built a full-size convertible mock up. In fact, Polestars 2, 3 and 4 have completed, or near-complete, designs. Clearly things are moving along very quickly, but what’s making this rapid design and development possible? These vehicles share modular platforms straight from Volvo. Specifically, there are two platforms, and both are already engineered for EV powertrains. This makes things much easier for Polestar because its biggest task is designing the bodies.

One of the platforms, however, does have some Polestar involvement because it wants to ensure the latest battery and motor technology can be used. Back to the Polestar 4: hopefully it’ll be more than the Polestar 1 sans roof. We love the Polestar 1 coupe, don’t get us wrong, but considering brand prestige and the expected high sticker price, Polestar designers can’t afford to be lazy here.

The Volvo Polestar 1 May Not Be As Rare As We Originally Thought




Why is the Swedish automaker thinking about building more cars?
We were blown away when Volvo first announced its 600 hp hybrid sports coupe, the Polestar 1. We were even more surprised to learn that the car wouldn't be sold through traditional means, but would instead be sold in a subscription model. The Polestar 1 isn't just technologically advanced and very expensive, it's rare too. Volvo had originally only planned to build 500 units per year, but Automotive News Europe reports that the Swedish automaker may have to reconsider those small production numbers.

Since the car was announced, Volvo already has 5,000 customers that are interested in purchasing the car. At only 500 units per year, it would take far too long to satisfy this demand. Volvo's 500 unit per year plan was only meant to last for three years, so there would clearly be a lot of people still clamoring to buy one by the end of the production run. "We are looking at whether we could do a higher volume than 500 units a year. We are checking that out," Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a roundtable discussion. "I think there is potential to go to two shifts" he added. Polestar does have some time to mull this decision over before making any announcements.

The Chengdu plant that will build the Polestar 1 won't be finished until mid-2018 and the car won't start rolling off of the assembly line until mid-2019. The biggest reason for the long wait is the car's carbon fiber body. This is Volvo's first time building a car with a carbon fiber body, and it will take time to master the process. Pre-orders for the car should start this spring, and we should see a production version of the car at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Sexy Polestar 1 Coupe Finally Shows Up On European Soil In Geneva


Volvo’s now standalone performance brand Polestar is celebrating its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show with the very attractive One plug-in hybrid coupe.

The new Polestar One is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain with a very impressive combined output of 600hp and 737lb-ft (1000Nm) of torque.
The powertrain mixes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Drive-E petrol engine with two powerful electric motors that are mounted on the rear axle. The only official figure we have so far is the all-electric range of the Polestar One, which is a very impressive 93 miles (150km).
The new model is based on Volvo’s SPA architecture but Polestar claims that around 50 percent of the One is new and bespoke to them. That includes things like the all-carbon bodywork and the trick Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension (CESi).
88. Geneva International Motor Show, 05.03.2018, Palexpo – Guido ten Brink / SB-Medien The new Polestar One will be offered under the company’s subscription service, which covers the additional costs of insurance, routine maintenance and depreciation. Polestar also said that they will outright sell their first product to those interested for a price between 130,000 and 150,000 euros ($160k to $184k in today’s exchange rates).
Production is set to begin in mid-2019 at a new factory in China, with Polestar to limit the output to 500 units per year, although this could change if customer demand is high enough.

Reserve Your Polestar 1 Hybrid Performance Coupe Now For $2500

Have you been waiting for your chance to place an order for the new Polestar 1? Well your opportunity, we’re glad to report, has now come.

Volvo’s electric performance off-shoot has now opened pre-ordering for its debut hybrid coupe in eighteen countries around the world. And that includes the United States.
“With over 7,000 people interested in owning a Polestar 1 since its reveal, we are extremely encouraged by the passion shown for our product,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath. “We will now take the next steps towards delivering this beautiful car to our first customers.”
The first model from the relaunched Sino-Swedish brand, the Polestar 1 boasts 93 miles (150 kilometers) of pure electric driving range. That’s the longest of any hybrid on the market, according to the manufacturer. It also produces 600 horsepower and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque, which promises to deliver impressive pace and performance.
Add to that a beautiful design, inside and out, and parent company Geely could have a real winner on its hands. The vehicle was previewed by the Volvo Concept Coupé of 2013, and debuted at a dedicated event in Shanghai last October. Polestar showcased the vehicle on European soil for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show last week.
In addition to the United States, pre-ordering has opened as well in Canada, China, and fifteen European countries: Sweden, naturally, but also Norway, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and the United Kingdom. The reservation process involves placing a deposit of $2,500 to hold a spot on the order list, and is fully refundable in the event of cancelation.

The 600 Horsepower Polestar 1 Will Cost An Eye-Watering $155,000





Image: Polestar
The Polestar 1 is shaping up to be a 600 horsepower hybrid monster that’s kinda-sorta from Volvo. Since most people will just assume it’s a Volvo, how much do you think even the best Volvo would cost? $85,000? $90,000? No. It’ll cost $155,000. And that’s just to start.
Polestar reps have told us that Polestar is separate from Volvo. Somewhat. The best analogy we’ve heard is that it’s supposed to be the Lexus to Volvo’s Toyota, even though Volvo already competes with Lexus. So it’s supposed to be even more Lexus-y than Lexus, in a way. And while the Polestar 1 is bang on the money for a Volvo S90 coupe, we’ve been told that the forthcoming Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 (a fully electric mid-size sedan and a fully-electric SUV, respectively), are supposed to significantly depart from what Volvo does already.

















But if you understand what the Polestar 1 is made of, you will see that the specs at least point to it being more than a Volvo. The body, for instance, is made of carbon fiber, which helps to put 52 percent of the weight over the rear axle. It’ll have something called “Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension,” which will not only (rather obviously) be made by famed Swedish suspension company Öhlins, but will also be able to react to the road in a scant 2 milliseconds. It’ll have 15.7-inch brake discs from Akebono in Japan, with six-piston calipers.
And did I mention the 600 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque? And the 93-mile all-electric range before the gasoline engine kicks in?
Of course, that price range also puts you into some fierce competition. There’s the Mercedes S-Class Coupe or the AMG GT. The BMW M8 will probably be around there, too. The Porsche 911 Turbo and the 911 GT3 come close as well. If there are a ton of options available, it may even come close to Bentley Continental GT money.






There is a bit of an elephant in the room, however, with the announcement of the Polestar 1's pricing. If you don’t like the $155,000 sticker, you’ll be able to get it on a subscription model for a flat monthly fee, which we understand is going to be like Care by Volvo.
I’ll take two, please.

Hybrid coupe ices test drive in Northern Sweden




After icy laps in the Swedish Lapland—the next stop for the Polestar 1 is Beijing. Volvo’s spin-off electric performance hybrid survived its first winter test drive in Northern Sweden and will make an upcoming appearance at Auto China 2018 next week.

The marque’s debut car was revealed to the media in Shanghai last year and it was also rolled out for the public at the Geneva motor show last month.

A Polestar 1 prototype survived a two-week winter test drive north of the Arctic Circle by test drivers and engineers in temperatures as low as -18 degrees Fahrenheit, we are told.

Watch 2016 Volvo V60 Polestar: the hottest wagon of them all?
The sporty performance coupe features a four-cylinder engine and two rear electric motors that produce a combined total of 600 hp and 758 lb-ft of torque.




It can do 93 miles on battery power alone when running in pure electric mode. During its frigid winter test out on the ice, Polestar says the drivetrain and batteries were tested under close scrutiny.

“Our test drivers have given us some enthusiastic feedback on the handling and dynamics especially,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath, in a statement. “Besides being very happy with the balance of the chassis, they are particularly excited about the torque vectoring. We are now very confident about how this enhances the Polestar 1’s cornering responsiveness and accuracy. This is a driver’s car.”

The company states that prototype testing will continue throughout the year and Polestar 1 is expected to start production in mid-2019. Auto China 2018 runs from April 25 to May 4.

The Polestar 1 Has Carbon Fiber Bonding Inspired By A Bug
Hey, whatever works, right?
As it nears closer to production, we continue to learn more about the upcoming 2019 Polestar 1. We saw the car in concept form last March at Geneva and we’ll see it in action for the first time in just a few weeks' time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb. Today, new information has arrived from Polestar regarding the stunning coupe’s advanced carbon-fiber build techniques. Remember, the coupe’s upper body, including the doors, front wings, hood and trunk are all made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP).




8






That’s not easy to pull off because carbon fiber behaves differently than traditional build materials, such as steel and aluminum. Polestar engineers therefore used draping simulations that simulated how carbon fiber would react in the real world. As a result of these computer simulations, the directional weaves in the carbon fiber are specifically placed to counteract forces and increase strength during driving conditions. The lightweight carbon-fiber body also helps shave off over 500 pounds of extra heft, which is extremely beneficial because the required batteries for the plug-in hybrid system are not exactly light. The CFRP body is then bonded to the steel underbody by a Dragonfly-shaped (yes, like the insect) patch of carbon fiber.





8







Polestar says the shape of the Dragonfly is ideal because the wingspan and abdomen shape actually improves torsional stiffness at one of the critical points in the body structure, between the middle floor and rear construction, by more than 45 percent. Translation: the shape of a bug inspired a CFRP bonding method. The combination of a steel underbody and carbon fiber upper lowers the car’s center of gravity as well, thus allowing for better handling and performance. Working with carbon fiber as a main construction material presents all sorts of challenges, including how the exterior paint is applied.




8






For the Polestar 1, the carbon fiber arrives at the factory from the supplier with a coated primer already applied, which is necessary in order for the car’s color to actually come out right. It’s important to note that the Polestar 1 is just the first of several new vehicles from the newly standalone brand previously part of Volvo. Consider the Polestar 1 as simply a warm up; it will be the only Polestar with an internal combustion engine. All future models, beginning with the Polestar 2, will be battery electric only.

Polestar One Saved 507lbs Off Its Weight Thanks To Carbon Fiber









Polestar shed more light on its first product, the carbon-clad high-performance hybrid Polestar One.

The now-standalone Polestar brand leads the way for the Volvo Car Group in carbon fiber construction, after opting to use the lightweight material for the main body parts of the Polestar One.
The upcoming plug-in hybrid two-door coupe is using the carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) for the bonnet, boot lid, side panels, doors and the entire roof structure. Thanks to the extensive use of the CFRP, the Polestar One managed to save 230kg (507lbs) off its weight, at least according to Polestar.
Polestar has also added a CFRP component “shaped like a dragonfly” between the middle of the floor and the rear construction. The company says that this component “radically improves” torsional stiffness at of the body structure’s most critical points.

“When you combine this strengthened framework with the super-strong body and roof structure, you get a stiff and communicative chassis which translates driver input into superb driving characteristics,” said Christian Samson Head of Product Creation at Polestar.
The carbon fiber roof is not only stronger and thinner than a steel equivalent but it also allows a much lower roof line. In addition the glass panel is integrated with minimal intrusion from body elements, allowing a truly panoramic view.
“Carbon fiber is crucial in meeting our design, engineering and performance goals with the Polestar 1”, added Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer at Polestar. “The result is a beautiful, technological package that remains faithful to the original design with its elegant and low silhouette. It looks as good as it is to drive!”
The Polestar One will be powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines a twin-charged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a pair of electric motors for a combined 600hp and 738lb-ft (1,000Nm) of torque. Polestar claims it’ll be able to run on electric power alone for 93 miles (150km).
The new high-performance Swedish coupe will make its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Polestar 1 Configurator Goes Live With Limited Options



The Polestar 1 online configurator is live and proves two things. First, the hybrid coupe looks good in any color combination, and second, it proves that not all configurators are created equally.

Unlike the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera configurator we shared a few days ago, the Polestar 1’s is exceptionally simple and reveals that those looking to purchase the car will have very little freedom when it comes to creating something unique.

For starters, there are just six exterior finishes offered and five of them are either white, black, or silver. The only shade that offers a hint of color is Midnight, which is a dark shade of blue. As for the wheels, there is only one design being offered, and it’s available in Diamond Cut, Glossy Black, and Matte Black finishes.

In the cabin, there are just two options. Charcoal with Zinc seats and Charcoal. The car pictured here features the former. Believe it or not, Polestar offers no other areas of personalization for the 1 coupe.

This is strange because in the United States, the car carries a sticker price of $155,000. That’s a lot of money, and one would expect to be able to create something unique for such a sum.

Either way, it is the powertrain that remains the headline act of the Polestar 1. The car combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine powering the front axle with two electric motors that send power to the rear. All up, it delivers 592 hp and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. A 34 kWh battery allows it to travel up to 150 km (93 miles) on a single charge.

The Polestar 1's Online Configurator Is Extremely Basic For A Six-Figure Car







There just aren't enough options.
Just a few days ago, Aston Martin announced the configurator for the all-new DBS Superleggera. As you'd expect from Aston Martin, the DBS offers endless amounts of customization, so owners can have a bespoke experience. We've been excited for the upcoming Polestar 1 from Volvo, a limited production sports coupe with 600 horsepower. The car is available for pre-order and can be purchased for $155,000. Even if you can't afford it, you can now go online and configure your perfect Polestar 1.




10






Unlike Aston Martin, Volvo hasn't gone crazy with the options of the Polestar 1. Perhaps in a bid to keep production costs in check on such a low volume model, the Polestar 1's configurator is actually quite basic. For starters, only six color options are available - Space, Snow, Midnight, Osmium, Osmium Matte, and Magnesium - and five of those are either white, black or silver. Wheels are offered in three colors: Diamond cut (silver), Glossy Black, and Matte Black. Buyers can also choose between Glossy Black and Chrome on the exterior trim. Inside, there will be just two color options: Charcoal with Zinc Seats (beige), and Charcoal (black).





10







That's all there is to it - no additional options, no custom colors, just a simple configurator. If you'd like a Polestar 1, you can now place a deposit for $2,500 and production will begin next year.

First Polestar 1 Prototypes Enter Production




Customer cars are expected to start production in the middle of next year.


Development of the Polestar 1 has reached a new milestone, with the announcement that the first prototypes of the high-performance hybrid coupe have now entered production in Sweden. Polestar says the first batch of 34 pre-production prototypes will be used for crash tests, weather testing and on-road assessment.

Construction of the prototypes takes place in a specialized prototype production facility in Gothenburg and is largely done by hand. The pre-production stage also allows Polestar to iron out any kinks before customer cars are built at Polestar’s new plant in Chengdu, China, next year.
It’s a crucial testing stage since the Polestar 1’s carbon-fiber body required the development of new specialized production equipment and construction techniques that will be applied to the production cars.




















“The assembly of the VP cars means that the Polestar 1 has taken its next step towards production,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer of Polestar. “This first batch of 34 cars will enable our engineers to tune the finer details of the car, ensuring that the Polestar 1 is perfect when we start to produce customer cars in the middle of next year.”











Orders are currently open for the Polestar 1, but the model is in extremely high demand. Back in August, Polestar confirmed 8,000 potential customers are on the waiting list, so you could be waiting a long time since production is capped at 1,500 units per year. Prices start at $155,000 in the US, but Polestar will also offer a subscription service with details to be announced closer to next year’s launch.
If you need a refresher, the Polestar 1 uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four paired to a couple of electric motors to produce 600 hp and an all-electric driving range of up to 93 miles.
