Refresher: Polestar, Volvo's all-electric spin-off performance brand, unveiled the 441kW/1000Nm Polestar 1 in 2017 and followed it up with the 2 in 2019. The 1 won't come to Australia, but Volvo's local arm insists the 2 will be here later this year.
As an SUV, though, it might be the as yet unconfirmed Polestar 3 that proves most compelling for buyers – assuming it isn't priced into the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus space. (Not that either model has struggled to find buyers.)
That doesn't mean the 3 will follow the 2 by simply putting the Precept on stilts, but we can undoubtedly expect a fastback coupe-like profile.
And, of course, it'll be quick. With EVs like the Tesla Model X and 'conventional' champions like the Urus likely on its conquest list, the Polestar 3 is sure to take performance inspiration from the 1 coupe.
“We want the cars to be performance cars, not only from 0-60mph but [also] great driver’s cars with good driving dynamics,” Missoni told Autocar. “All of our cars, especially with the performance pack, will fulfil some of those desires.”
Watch for more on the 3 to surface in the months ahead.
