2023 Polestar 3 based on next-generation Volvo XC90 will be more upscale
After the Polestar 1 petrol-electric hybrid coupe was announced in 2017, and the brand’s first pure electric car Polestar 2 was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019, the third car of the Polaris Polestar has now been finalized and will be launched in 2022. However, Polestar 1, Polestar 2 and other two models are made in China, and there will be a different arrangement in the third Polestar 3.
The new Polestar 3 is expected to share the same set of chassis platforms as the redesigned and third-generation Volvo XC90, and will be mass-produced at the Charleston, South Carolina plant, which means that Polestar 3 is closely related to the new-generation Volvo XC90. The third Polaris will also be the brand’s unprecedented “pure electric vacation “! In addition, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath previously stated in an interview that Polestar 3 is expected to be equipped with a more unique and powerful power configuration than the third-generation Volvo XC90, and will respond to the different needs of various markets, and then provide single-motor or dual-motor Models for consumers to choose.
Speaking of the market, Polestar originally planned to expand sales to 18 countries by the end of this year, but at the 2021 Munich Auto Show, it said that Polaris is expected to be sold in 30 countries by 2022, including Hong Kong, Both South Korea and Singapore have confirmed that they will open branches.
In addition, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath also revealed that although the Polestar 3 is a recreational vehicle, there will only be “two rows” of seats in the car after mass production. The XC90 is somewhat different. Polestar also intends to provide a more luxurious cockpit feel for its own No. 3 Polaris. At the same time, in the future, due to the advent of this pure electric recreational vehicle, Polestar has the opportunity to reach the scale of 100,000 vehicles per year
