Polestar 1 Drops Its Top In The Virtual World

Polestar 1 OFFICIALLY revealed- and it IS a STUNNING 600bhp Volvo Coupe

The pure electric coupe hybrid is promising 600 horsepower and class-leading range and efficiency.

Polestar took the wraps off its first production model only a few days ago and already the coupe has been transformed into a purely hypothetical shooting brake.

The Polestar 1 will arrive in 2019, with numbers to be capped at just 500 units per year due to its finicky carbon fiber-intensive production process. Volvo Cars and Polestar say the investment allows them greater "synergies" when it comes to joint development and economies of scale.

German premium brands Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Porsche are planning to launch dozens of new high-end electric vehicles and hybrids in the next few years. Polestar Spaces will be standalone facilities and not within existing Volvo retailer showrooms.

Also helping the Polestar 1 excel on twisty roads, the Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension system fits an electronic valve to each Öhlins shock absorber, monitoring driver inputs and road conditions and making adjustments within two milliseconds to provide precisely tailored suspension performance.

The Polestar 1 will be built at Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu, China. Adding to the overall flashy look of the Polestar 1 is the rear windshield which wraps itself over the roof and down across the front of the auto giving the sporty Polestar 1 an even sleeker look and feel. Now under construction, it is due for completion in mid-2018. Polestar has reworked roughly 50 percent of the car's structure, however, optimizing it for a sharp, agile ride befitting of a GT performance flagship. Production on that vehicle is expected to begin in 2019, and Volvo sees it serving as a direct competitor to Tesla's Model 3. It will be a mid-sized, battery-electric vehicle, competing with Tesla's Model 3. The zero-deposit, all-inclusive subscription will also add features such as pick-up and delivery servicing and the ability to rent alternative vehicles within the Volvo and Polestar range, all incorporated into one monthly payment.

Polestar 1 order books are open now, for those that want to reserve a Polestar future right away.
