Swedish super-coupe gets sideways in the snow
Having spun Polestar off into its own electric-focused performance brand, Volvo wowed the world with the Polestar 1.
That extends to the carbon-fibre body panels, underbody and suspension, developed alongside the team from Koenigsegg. Coupled with a shorter version of the Volvo SPA platform, the Polestar 1 is 45 per cent stiffer than it otherwise would have been, and around 230kg lighter.
The 34kWh battery packs positioned at each end of the car go a long way to undermining those weight savings, though.
What does all of that look like? Check out the video above.
