The name Polestar might not be familiar to you know, but that will all change – if Volvo and Geely have any say in the matter. Formerly best-known for making the bright blue performance variants of Volvo’s line-up, now Polestar is turning its attention to electrification. Not just any electrification, mind.
No, it wants to make performance EVs. First up is this, the Polestar 1, a hybrid with a hefty 600 HP. Volvo detailing abounds, but this will be an altogether more exclusive affair.
Polestar says the Polestar 1 should arrive in mid-2019, with pricing to be confirmed closer to launch. It’ll be followed by the Polestar 2, a plug-in fully-electric car targeting the Tesla Model 3. After that will come the Polestar 3, an electric SUV.
