Looks like Tesla has some competition. Or do they?
J.P. Canton, director of communications for Polestar in North America says -
"Polestar is the new performance electric car brand from the Volvo and Geely car groups. So you get the safety and security of what we like to call a 92-year-old startup,"
Dave says to think of Polestar as Volvo's more specialized cousin.
Polestar 1, which definitely has Volvo's DNA in its design.
- The structure of the Polestar 1 is made of carbon fiber
- It's a plug-in hybrid
- About 60 miles of battery range,
- A total of over 600 horsepower from its combined gasoline and electric motors.
Now remember this is a flagship for the brand so when I tell you the sticker price is $160,000 don't be surprised. There will only be a few hundred sold in the U.S.
