After months of anticipation, Polestar has pulled the entire sheet off its first-ever electric SUV, the Polestar 3.
The Polestar 3 will also eventually be built in the US, begging the question whether some iteration of it will be able to qualify for federal tax credits.
Polestar is an EV-centric automotive brand launched in 2017 as a venture co-owned by Volvo Cars Group and Geely Holding. The automaker currently sells two electrified vehicles – the PHEV Polestar 1 and the all-electric Polestar 2 – but there are at least four more on the way.
The two EVs above share plenty of Volvo DNA, but Polestar has been working to deliver a new bespoke breed of EV models beginning with the Polestar 3 SUV.
It will be followed by a Polestar 4 SUV in 2023 and the the Polestar 5 in 2024, based upon Polestar’s original concept EV, the Precept.
Most recently, Polestar revealed its O₂ roadster concept will also enter production as the Polestar 6, but enough about the future.
For the first model year versions, Polestar will include the Plus Pack and Pilot Pack fitted as standard.
