Mahwah, NJ (February 11, 2020) – Final build slots for Polestar 1 – the Polestar brand’s electric performance hybrid halo car – are now available. Produced in Polestar’s leading production facility, Polestar 1 will see the completion of its production run towards the end of 2021.
“We’ve received an overwhelming response from customers and press following the 2017 debut of the Polestar 1 and subsequent deliveries in 2020,” said Gregor Hembrough, Head of Polestar in North America. “With some 619hp, yet retaining the longest electric range of any hybrid vehicle on the current market, this hybrid grand tourer is a testament to the design and technological innovation Polestar passionately pursues.”
As the halo of the Polestar lineup and the car which launched the brand, Polestar 1 features a crisp design and state-of-the-art technology, with 619 horsepower and 738 lb.-ft. of torque available from its hybrid powertrain. With an electric-first ethos, the GT features two electric motors on the rear axle, complemented by a 2.0-liter supercharged and turbocharged petrol engine, plus an integrated starter generator at the front.
A carbon fiber body, 6-piston Akebono brakes and adjustable Öhlins dampers turn driving Polestar 1 into a highly-tuned sensory experience, and with advanced features such as mechanical torque vectoring, it faithfully represents Polestar’s role as a guiding star for the advancement of technology.
With 34 kWh of battery capacity, Polestar 1 still boasts the longest pure-electric driving range of any hybrid – 60 miles – which makes it usable in everyday situations as a pure electric vehicle.
