Polestar 6 LA Concept Edition Sells Out In Record Time

Electric Vehicles / 6 Comments

All 500 build slots are accounted for.

When the handsome Polestar 1 was discontinued, many assumed the brand's future lineup would comprise of sober-suited electric crossover sedans and SUVs like the Polestar 2. But the Swedish brand stunned the world earlier this year when it introduced the bewitching O2 concept.

Initially, the electric roadster was never intended to sail down the assembly line. But positive customer response has prompted the company to do just that, recently announcing the sleek concept will enter production in 2026, as the Polestar 6.

In celebration of the sixth-ever Polestar, the electric-only automaker has planned 500 special models called the LA Concept edition based on the original concept's design. Unsurprisingly, every build slot has already been sold, and in record time.

"The high interest from our customers shows that a stunning electric roadster like Polestar 6 has high relevance in the [sports car] arena," said Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath. "The open-top-plus-electric combination ... appeals to even the most die-hard petrolheads."

The manufacturer notes all 500 slots were reserved just a week after the production announcement was made. However, it is worth noting that some of these cherished spots have been set aside for some customers in specific markets, such as Singapore and New Zealand, which have different market setups.

What makes the LA Concept edition so special, you ask? Well, the limited run variant draws inspiration from the striking concept. As such, each model will be finished in the delightful Sky Blue paintwork and paired with a cream leather interior. 21-inch wheels finish everything off nicely.

The beautiful Polestar recently made its first public appearance on US soil at The Quail, allowing us to get up close and personal with the speedy Swede. The minimalistic bodywork has just enough detailing to draw you in, without overwhelming you with superfluous styling gimmicks.

In typical Polestar fashion, the interior is uncluttered and straightforward. We're not sure too many people will be fond of the portrait touchscreen, and the two-spoke steering wheel won't find favor with keen drivers. Still, we're four years away from seeing a production-ready model, so these details may change before then.

If you were hoping to secure a build slot, don't fret - Polestar is expected to open reservations for regular models later in the year. These models will, of course, be built after all 500 LA Concept editions have been completed.

In terms of performance, Ingenlath has set a rather lofty goal for the Polestar 6. While discussing the newcomer, the CEO explained that the 6 will utilize a bonded [aluminum] platform which is in the premium segment at the very top." He added, "we are competing with the Porsche 911 and that type of car."

Power-wise, we can expect the halo model to be powered by the dual-motor setup with 872 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. This should provide ample motivation, with Polestar hoping to achieve a 0 to 60 mph time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. Lesser models will follow, with the CEO noting the 6 "will have a range with different drivetrains, and that is all to come in the next three years."
