After launching the Polestar 1 Plug-in sports car and the Polestar 2 electric sedan, the Swedish carmaker is continuing the development of the Polestar 3, an electric SUV that will arrive in the course of 2022 and which will be; built in the United States and precisely in the Volvo plant in Ridgeville, South Carolina where it will be; also made the Volvo XC90 electric. For the time being, the builder has shared a few details of that model besides a teaser image.
Some more information now comes from Car and Driver who had the opportunity to speak with the CEO of the company Thomas Ingenlath during the Munich Motor Show 2021.
NO TO THE THREE ROWS OF SEATS
The future SUV will be & agrave; proposed only with two rows of seats and not with three. This means that it will offer; 5 places. A choice made both for aerodynamic reasons and to emphasize the space on board.
Having two rows offers the opportunity; to give the car an aerodynamic roofline and allows to emphasize the space between the first and second row, which allows to give the second row a feeling of luxury.
The SUV will be offered both with a single engine and with a double engine and therefore four-wheel drive. In any case, the CEO highlights that this model will offer; superior performance to the future electric Volvo XC90 . The Polestar 3 will be realized on the SPA2 platform and will be able to count on an infotainment based on the latest evolution of Android Automotive and on advanced driving assistance systems.
In August we also tried to imagine the shapes of this car through a render. While foreseeing that the Polestar 2 will be & agrave; the most sold by the brand globally, Ingenlath said the Polestar 3 should help push the brand's total production to over 100,000 cars per year.
In addition to the Polestar 3, the Swedish brand is working to a production version of its Precept concept car. For the moment, however, Polestar is not looking to the world of motorsport as it is carrying out several important projects to expand its range of cars.
