Launched last year, Polestar 1 is a two-door Grand Tourer with an 'Electric Performance Hybrid' drivetrain, utilising two rear-mounted electric motors (ERAD), a Crank-Integrated Starter Generator (CISG) and a front-mounted 4-cylinder petrol combustion engine (ICE). Circa 500 cars per annum available to order across 10 markets.
Polestar 1 is based on SPA ( Volvos Scalable Product Architecture) but approximately 50% is new and bespoke, created by Polestar's engineers. Just a few examples of this include the carbon fibre body that increases torsional stiffness by 45% as well as lowering the centre of gravity, thanks to a reduction in body weight. Double electric rear motors drive each rear wheel separately, each with a planetary gear set, which enables genuine torque vectoring. This supports the driver while cornering, maximising cornering speed and traction. Polestar 1 also features a state-of-the-art chassis including the Ohlins DFV (dual flow valve) dampers. And finally, Polestar 1 benefits from high-performance Akebono 6-piston brakes offering tremendous stopping power.
The advanced electric fastback - launched this year, the Polestar 2 uses Volvo's CMA platform as a base platform, which is then adapted to deliver bespoke product features and its own unique avant-garde design throughout.
