Polestar 3 concept

This is the first look at the forthcoming Polestar 3 model. With a sloping roofline and a big rear spoiler, the side profile is sleek and athletic. In addition, there are flush door knobs reminiscent of Tesla.

There are similar, angular headlights to those found on the Polestar 2, together with "Thor's hammer" daytime running lights. Additionally, there is a huge vent on the hood and smaller ones on the wings. It's not clear yet if these are just for looks or if they actually help with aerodynamics.

The rear of the vehicle looks to have a full-width light bar, similar to the smaller 2 This prototype also appears to be equipped with 20-inch alloy wheels.

Polestar 3 battery range and capacity

As with the Polestar 2, the Polestar 3 will be available with both two-and four-wheel drive, according to company CEO Thomas Ingenlath. In addition, he indicated that the dual-motor Polestar 3 would be positioned to compete with the most potent EV SUVs on the market but refrained from providing performance specifications.

There will be some component sharing with the Polestar 2, which is offered in 221hp, 228hp, and 402hp variants. Polestar has confirmed a 600-kilometer range estimate (372 miles).

There are no pictures yet of the inside of the new Polestar 3, but it will probably look a lot like the insides of other Polestar cars.

You can be certain, however, that the digital display and infotainment system will be based on Android, providing native support for Google Maps and Assistant. There will likely also be a variety of eco-friendly trim and upholstery alternatives.

Polestar 3 price and release date

A version of Polestar Precept is in production.

The Polestar Precept is a coupe with four doors and a sporty look, just like the Porsche Taycan.

The Polestar 3 is not the only upcoming electric vehicle from the Swedish manufacturer. It was also announced that production of the Precept idea would begin in 2023. This four-door coupe will offer competition to the Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and BMW i4.

The Precept (the name will change to align with the existing Polestar lineup) will be marketed as the top-of-the-line model, although battery and electric motor specifications are not yet known. As with the Polestar 3, it will likely share some components with the Polestar 2.

Thomas Ingenlath, the chief executive officer of Polestar, predicted that the maximum range would be capped at approximately 310 miles, describing this as a suitable compromise between usable range, vehicle weight, and production costs.
