Polestar Should Consider Making A Convertible Version Of The 1 Coupe

/ Comments

A future Jaguar F-Type rival in the making?

Last week's reveal of the Polestar 1 coupe was one of the most pleasant surprises of the year. Polestar's first ever performance car boasts stunning looks inspired by the gorgeous Volvo Concept Coupe and a hybrid powertrain packing a respectable 600 horsepower. It was an undeniably strong debut for Polestar in its first venture as a standalone brand after leaving Volvo as a performance division. But the Polestar 1 is just the start. Polestar's long-term ambition is to become a leading manufacturer of electric performance cars.

Further down the line the Swedish automaker will be taking on Tesla with an all-electric mid-sized sedan and SUV. Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long for render artists to come up with potential new cars that could expand Polestar's line-up. Just days after its launch, X-Tomiimagined the Polestar 1 as a stunning shooting brake, even though it's unlikely to happen. To complement the shooting brake, X-Tomi has also shown how the Polestar 1 would look with its roof removed, and the result is just as elegant. Render artist Aksyonov Nikita also has a similar vision, and has created their own convertible Polestar 1 render based on the original reveal photos of the coupe.

This could be a Mercedes-AMG cabriolet or Jaguar F-Type rival in the making. While Sweden's climate isn't ideal for convertibles, the country does make a handful of drop-tops such as the Volvo C70. Every Koenigsegg model can also be converted into a drop-top thanks to removable roof panels. Polestar plans to make 500 examples of the 1 coupe every year, which will be available to buy through a monthly subscription. Alternatively, Polestar has suggested it could cost up to $177,000 to own outright, but prices have yet to be confirmed. If successful, let's hope the Polestar 1 coupe paves the way for a convertible model.
