Polestar, the half-Swedish, half-Chinese brand, is firmly following its landing on the market. After the launch of its first two models, the third model is called to lead its category. With a clear focus on the price-product ratio, the Polestar 3 will be a 100% electric SUV that will make a quantum leap in sales, although they are also suffering the consequences of the great instability that surrounds the markets.
A few days ago, Polestar officially announced that it was forced to lower its expectations for this course. After closing 2021 with a positive balance in sales and production, 2022 was going to be the year that confirmed the good feelings. However, the health crisis in China and the various world problems have caused Polestar to recalculate its sales, reducing expectations from 65,000 to 50,000 units at the end of next December.
Despite this reduction, the data confirm the good health of Polestar. They have just officially landed in Spain, and in Europe, they are already present in more than 20 countries. With these bases, the Polestar 3 will arrive with the band of becoming the house’s best-selling model. An SUV with a certain Volvo appearance that will mount an electrical system similar or improved to that of its brother, the Polestar 2, which continues to reap good sales throughout the continent.
Polestar announced its plans for the coming years some time ago. With three models ready to see the light, the Polestar 3 will be, as its name indicates, the company’s third model. The brand has already announced that the official launch will take place in October. That same day the order book will be opened, with the first units reaching customers starting next year.
Continuing with the news, the Polestar 3 will be manufactured in the United States and China, although it has not yet been confirmed where the units marketed in the old continent will come from. Under its still unknown bodywork, the electric SUV will mount the same scheme, or at least one very similar, to that of its brother, the Polestar 2. The range will revolve around different battery sizes and a different number of motors, while the maximum autonomy is expected to be close to 500 kilometers in the WLTP cycle.
