Polestar may be a small player in the EV space presently, but it's determined to make an impact in diverse segments of the market. The Polestar 1 is a luxurious, high-tech grand tourer, the Polestar 2 a much more practical liftback sedan, and now we have this, the Polestar 3 SUV.
While technical details remain scarce, we know that the Polestar 3 will come with both single- and dual-motor derivatives. In the dual-motor Polestar 2, the output is over 400 horsepower, so the quickest Polestar 3 is likely to be similarly rapid. The 2 has a range of around 233 miles, so if the 3 follows suit, it won't match the Tesla Model Y in this area. The Polestar 2 and 3 will also share some design cues, although the 3 obviously has a unique SUV profile that should make for a spacious, practical cabin.
The Polestar 3 is scheduled to go into production in South Carolina in the second half of 2022. When it arrives, it will take on rivals like the Audi Q4 e-tron and Tesla Model Y. Based on these EVs, expect the Polestar 3 to start at around $45,000 when it goes on sale.
