Polestar 1 unveiled: 441kW, 1000Nm hybrid

Polestar New Model

The brand's first vehicle, the 600hp Polestar 1, is set to come out in 2019, retailing for upwards of £130,000.

That means it will use a 2.0-litre four-cylinder that is both supercharged and turbocharged and combined with at least one powerful electric motor. The powertrain will have a range of 150kms on pure electric power alone - the longest full electric range of any hybrid vehicle on the market. The company claims it can drive in Pure Mode (all electric) for up to 150 kilometers (93 miles), which would give it the longest battery-powered range of any PHEV now on the market.

The investment announced by Volvo and its Chinese parent on Tuesday will go toward a new manufacturing facility in Chengdu, southwest China, where they will develop the Polestar 1, a 600-horsepower, two-door, four-seater hybrid coupe with a pure electric range of 150 kilometers.

Its water covers 630 square miles (1630 square kilometers) but it's generally only about 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) deep. She said the helicopter crew also would look to spot any sign of pollution on Lake Pontchartrain, if there is any.

Half of the hardware powering Polestar 1 is from Volvo's SPA platform underpinning the big 90-series cars and the new XC60, while the other half is a joint effort between Polestar and Volvo specifically for this vehicle. Everything from scheduled maintenance, to the booking of a vehicle wash, to the temporary installation of a roof-box, can be arranged through and carried out by Polestar with an incremental charge then added to your monthly invoice. The monthly cost will include the cost of the car's pick up, delivery and servicing, as well as options to rent alternative vehicles under the Polestar and Volvo brands.

The Polestar 1's order books opened today (October 17, 2017). The Polestar 1 will be world's first vehicle to be fitted with the Ohlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension (CESi) advanced chassis technology. The plug-in hybrid powertrain would be borrowed from the Volvo XC90 T8. The debut is imminent - set for October 17 - and Polestar has made a decision to nearly fully complete the initial teaser image that had puzzle-like pieces missing.

"In electric high-performance cars there are a lot of companies now in this start-up arena, so we will have company", he said in Shanghai.

Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, said: "Polestar 1 is the first vehicle to carry the Polestar on the bonnet".

Finally the third offering from the performance aimed company will be a larger SUV-style BEV, the Polestar 3, which will aim to create a modern expression of electric performance and driving dynamics. All the cars will be ordered 100 percent online and offered on a two or three year subscription basis. The Polestar 1 will be the flagship of the new range, and is expected to be the only model that will be built as a hybrid. Polestar 1 is all set to roll off the production line in mid-2019.
