As its name indicates, the Polestar 3 will be the third model of the Swedish firm’s electric car firm, and it will also be the first model to show off the new and evolved Polestar design language, which represents a new stage for the brand, as we have been able to appreciate in the last communication and the image related to it.
On the occasion of the presentation of its strategy in terms of sales for the coming years, Polestar has published an image with the four models that will make up its range for 2024 as protagonists, and with this it has revealed for the first time the design of the rear of the Polestar 4, as well as the silhouette of the Polestar 4, also in an unprecedented way.
Arranged from left to right in order of arrival on the market, we find the Polestar 2, which is already on sale in Spain; to Polestar 3 that we will know definitively this October; to Polestar 4, which will be presented during 2023; and finally, the Polestar 5, a GT-type electric car that will see the light of day in 2025.
Although the design of the Polestar 5 is clearer than that of the rest of the models, since it will drink directly from a conceptual model that the firm presented months ago (the Polestar Precept), the novelty here is in the design of the two electric SUVs.
On the one hand, and from greater to lesser relevance given its proximity in time, the Polestar 3 fully certifies the separation of the Swedish firm from its parent firm, Volvo. And it is that, despite the fact that the Polestar 2 has been the first model to arrive from the firm, it still shows clear lines in common with the Volvo models. Similarities that vanish, almost completely, with the design of the Polestar 3.
Polestar has resorted, however, to the same rear light cluster design, made up of a single line of LEDs that occupies the entire frame. On this occasion, however, and in keeping with the Polestar 2, it shows a slimmer design, as well as having been inverted into a ‘C’ shape. The edges and shapes of the body are also now smoother than in the Polestar 2, thus distancing itself from the boxy shapes that normally characterize Volvo models.
On the other hand, the Polestar 4 reveals for the first time the shapes and proportions of its bodywork. We already knew that it was going to be an electric SUV of a more compact size than the Polestar 3, and the truth is that it shows a certain difference in terms of dimensions according to the Polestar 3 in the image, from which it also differs because of the drop of the roof towards the rear, which shows a marked lowering, similar to that of coupé-type electric SUVs.
However, it will not be until 2023 when we will definitively see Polestar 4. Before, and as the next step in Polestar’s commercial journey, we will have to meet Polestar 3, since it will be presented in September. This will be one of the key models in the future of the company, as they expect that by 2025 they will be marketing passenger cars at a rate of 160,000 units per year. A completely realistic figure given the segments they are targeting.
“We are a real company, not one built on slide promises. There are more than 55,000 Polestar cars on the world’s roads today and we are launching an impressive portfolio of three new models in just three years,” said Thomas. Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar. The brand is already present in 25 countries through 130 distribution points, and they plan to increase the number by 30 more points this year.
