Final build slots for Polestar 1 – the Polestar brand’s electric performance plug-in hybrid halo car – are now available. Produced in Polestar’s leading production facility in Chengdu, China, Polestar 1 will see the completion of its production run towards the end of 2021.
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 609 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque available from its plug-in hybrid powertrain. Electric first, the GT features two electric motors on the rear axle, complemented by a 2.0-litre supercharged and turbocharged petrol engine and integrated starter generator at the front.
A carbon fibre body, 6-piston Akebono brakes and adjustable Öhlins Dual Flow Valve 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 plug-in hybrid – 124 km or 77 miles (WLTP) – which makes it usable in everyday situations as a pure electric vehicle.
