  • Polestar 1 Shooting Brake Render Makes You Wish For The Impossible

The Polestar 1-an electric vehicle that also has a conventional internal combustion engine-has a range of 93 miles on electric power alone, which Volvo said is the "longest full electric range of any hybrid auto on the market". Volvo is also right to say that it has the longest EV range on any hybrid in the market.

Polestar, a subsidiary of Volvo Cars has unveiled their first vehicle as a standalone company. Polestar will have access to Volvo's deep knowledge base, engineering expertise and platform technologies, helping it to launch vehicles more efficiently than a brand-new independent automaker.

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. With that being said, nothing has gotten me more excited than the release of the utterly gorgeous Polestar 1 by Volvo. Now it makes the 362 BHP Polestar variants of the S60 and V60 as well as performance upgrades for existing Volvo cars. More information is expected on the Polestar 1 in the coming months. "A attractive GT with unbelievable technology packed into it - a great start for our new Polestar brand", Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer of Polestar, said in the press release announcing the Polestar 1. It's available for pre-order now and slated to "roll off the production line in mid-2019", Volvo said. There will be no Polestar dealers - and no Polestar cars in the corner of a Volvo showroom - but there will be Polestar retail "spaces". The Polestar 3 all-electric SUV will follow. Now under construction, it is due for completion in mid-2018. In 2020, Polestar will launch the Polestar 2, a small electric sedan that will challenge the Tesla Model 3. It will be a mid-sized BEV, joining the competition around Tesla Model 3, and with consequently higher volumes than Polestar 1. The zero-deposit, all-inclusive subscription will also add features such as pick-up and delivery servicing and the ability to rent alternative vehicles within the Volvo and Polestar range, all incorporated into one monthly payment. The costs will include insurance and maintenance.
