In March, Swedish electric car maker Polestar debuted a roadster concept. Volvo hopes to attract clients interested in sports cars like the Porsche 911 with its new Polestar 6 electric sports car. Polestar manager Edward Trinh reportedly commented, "We're doing a dynamic comparison with a Porsche," when the electric roadster concept was shown in Melbourne, Australia. Porsche's hybrid 911 and its new electric sports sedan, the Taycan, are available now, which is "what we're looking for in terms of automobiles." "When it comes to driving dynamics, we consider them the gold standard."
Polestar's R&D team in Sweden takes its mission to perfect the Polestar 6's driving characteristics extremely seriously. According to Trinh, "the head of vehicle dynamics for this car told us that the R&D team is considering high-tech suspension systems."
The manager stressed the need for the roadster to have excellent driving dynamics, citing the brand's roots in the automobile industry. Polestar began as Volvo's racing section and has now evolved into the performance arm of the Swedish automaker. Since 2017, Polestar has been marketed as a different automaker with its lineup.
The anticipated debut of the Polestar 6 is in 2026. The initial 500 copies of the starting edition quickly sold out. There will be an increase in production after the initial 500 vehicles are completed. The Polestar O2 concept is a convertible hardtop built on Polestar's new bonded aluminum chassis that features an 800-volt electrical design. 650 kW (884 hp) and 900 Nm (or Newton-meters) of power are the targets set by the corporation. The final product is expected to have a four-wheel drive and two motors, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h.
Polestar expects to release four new electric vehicles during the next five years, with the addition of the Polestar 6 electric sports car. The Polestar 3 sport utility vehicle and the Polestar 4 midsize electric SUV coupé will debut ahead of the electric roadster. The current lineup comprises the midsize Polestar 2 sedan and the decommissioned Polestar 1 hybrid coupe. @via Polestar.
