Polestar, the new electric performance brand, will make its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018 with the company’s first car, the Polestar 1, seen in public for the first time.
The Polestar 1, the first car with the Polestar logo on the bonnet, is a 2+2 Grand Touring Coupé with a 600hp Electric Performance Hybrid powertrain yet with the ability to travel 150km (93 miles) on pure electric power alone – the longest range on electric power of any hybrid in the world.
The Polestar 1 had its global reveal in Shanghai in October 2017. Production of the Polestar 1 will start in mid-2019 in the new state-of-the-art, purpose-built Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu, China, where construction has already started.
“We are looking forward to exhibiting at the Geneva Motor Show and are excited to hear feedback and see the reactions from the public on our first car and our new brand,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer at Polestar.
“Our stand in Geneva will be a powerful incarnation of what our brand embodies: uncompromised, pure and progressive design.”
Polestar’s European debut begins with a media event on Tuesday 06 March 2018 at 16:30 CET, with the stand open to the public from 08-18 March 2018.
