Polestar completes SPAC merger and begins trading on Nasdaq under ticker $PSNY

Months after initially announcing plans for a combined merger with Gores Guggenheim, Inc, Swedish EV automaker Polestar has successfully completed the task and has listed on the Nasdaq under ticker symbol $PSNY, beginning today.

The EV automaker first announced plans for a combined merger in September of 2021 with Gores Guggenheim, Inc. – a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) formed by affiliates of The Gores Group and Guggenheim Capital, LLC.

This merger comes at an opportune time as Polestar recently announced record sales for the year to date led by an increase in Polestar 2 orders by 290% compared to the same period last year. Polestar has also joined six new global markets this year, totaling 25 countries home to 130 retail footprints.

With its bespoke Polestar 3 SUV scheduled to launch this fall and two more new models to follow through 2024, there is a lot to be optimistic about when thinking about Polestar’s future. Now that is has officially listed on the Nasdaq, the public can invest in Polestar’s future as well.
