Polestar’s announcement of its newest electric vehicle – the Polestar 4 – shows that the company is willing to break new ground when it comes to SUV coupé designs and functionality.
Built on Geely Holding’s “Sustainable Experience Architecture,” the Polestar 4 focuses on combining an aerodynamic design, as well as a comfortable driving and riding experience. Some notable design elements are the lack of a rear window, and the addition of a full-length glass roofing that can be customized with optional electrochromic functionality, allowing passengers to adjust its opacity.
The car packs a 102kWh battery, comes in four-wheel and rear-wheel drive models, and is expected to launch with a price of around $60,000. Polestar states that the vehicle can complete a 0-63 mph sprint in just 3.8 seconds, thanks to a maximum power output of 400 kW/544 hp.
The Polestar 4 is also designed to give passengers better comfort with more spacing inside, as well as a fully-fledged control system which combines controls for rear passengers, as well as a comprehensive HUD, a driver display, and an infotainment setup that comes with support for Google’s Android Auto and several other Google-centric apps. Furthermore, a Harman Kardon audio setup is also offered as an option, packing 12 speakers and a 1,400-Watt channel-hybrid amplifier, in addition to Apple CarPlay.
Additionally, the car also comes with a driver assist system which includes a setup of 12 cameras, a radar, and 12 ultrasonic sensors, and even a driver monitoring camera which tracks movements and fatigue in order to steer clear (no pun intended) of unwanted accidents or mishaps.
While no specific date has been mentioned with regards to US availability, Polestar says that buyers in America will be able to get their hands on one in 2024.
