2020 Polestar 1



Volvo recently changed its performance Polestar lineup of cars into its own sub-brand. Now, Polestar will finally begin selling its first vehicle: a two-door plug-in hybrid coupe. Originally presented as a Volvo concept car in 2013, the Polestar 1 has emerged as a possible front runner in the small high-performance hybrid car market.

The all-new model features a gasoline engine in the front, two electric motors powering the rear wheels, and a third motor connected to the gasoline engine. That combination makes for 600 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque.

The plug-in hybrid will have an all-electric range of 93 miles. While that doesn’t match the range of some electric cars in our rankings, Volvo says it’s longer than any other hybrid car’s range. The gasoline engine should be enough to keep most drivers from having range anxiety.

The Polestar 1’s carbon fiber body reduces the car’s weight by about 500 pounds compared to conventional materials like steel and aluminium. That weight reduction improves performance and makes up for the heavy batteries in the vehicle.

Polestar will start by building 500 Polestar 1 models, with 200 designated for North American customers.

When shopping for a Polestar, you’ll head to a Polestar Space, where you can look at the car – but not buy it. You’ll complete the purchase online. A lease-like subscription model, where you pay a flat monthly fee that includes maintenance and insurance, should also be available.
