Polestar has shared an update on its first-ever SUV, the Polestar 3. The “electric performance SUV” as it is billed, will make its global debut in October 2022. But in the meantime, the brand has released a teaser image for us to talk about, which, unlike the dark and hard-to-see teasers that carmakers normally release, is crystal clear and leaves very little to the imagination.
The teaser is of a side profile, but as I said, the rest of the car’s design is not all that hard to imagine. We definitely can see the Precept‘s influence at the front, while the roofline and the rear-end of the vehicle remind us of the Volvo C40 Recharge. The roof-integrated spoiler contributes a lot to the vehicle’s overall sporty stance.
Polestar says that the Polestar 3 will, over time, offer autonomous highway piloting powered by the best-in-class LiDAR sensor from Luminar and centralized NVIDIA computing power. At launch, the electric SUV will be offered in a dual-motor variant powered by a large battery; Polestar is targeting a WLTP range of over 600 km (373 mi).
Production is expected to begin in early 2023, with manufacturing in both the United States and China.
