Polestar’s momentum has been building following its launch as a new electric performance car brand.
The company’s first car, Polestar 1, was revealed in October 2017 as a 600hp hybrid, with the longest pure electric range of any hybrid in the world.
The Polestar 1 will start production in mid-2019 at the new Polestar Production Centre, which is nearing completion. The first full year of production has already sold out, with 200 cars currently destined for North American customers.
The brand’s second car, Polestar 2, will be the company’s first full battery electric vehicle and is designed to compete with Tesla Model 3.
