Remember a few months back when Volvo's rare-groove performance arm, Polestar, announced it wanted to reinvent itself as the electric performance vehicle brand? That means a measly two-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine coupled with a pair of electric motors generating 218 hp and providing easy torque vectoring for the rear axle.
The combined power of the combustion engine and electric motor make 592bhp and 1000Nm of torque, placing this in the performance auto market.
The two-door Polestar 1 Grand Tourer Coupe will make 600 horsepower with its "electric performance hybrid drivetrain".
In any case beneath the skin, whatever Polestar says, the No.1 is nearly certain to be pure Volvo - based both on Volvo's medium-to-large Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform that's already used on the XC90, S90 and V90.
For those interested in how to get their hands on one of these when they come out, Volvo says they will move away from the traditional automaker-dealership model.
Polestar will use an internet-based sales system with a monthly subscription fee, Ingenlath said.
Volvo or not, the newPolestar 1 will help to show that electric technology can also be used as a synonym of performance. Should your interest have been piqued though, the order books for the new Polestar 1 open on October 17th, with the RRP set at 130,000 euros and expectations set equally as loftily. "A attractive GT with unbelievable technology packed into it - a great start for our new Polestar brand", Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar said.
Polestar says this is the world's first auto to be fitted with the all-new class-leading Ohlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension (CESi) advanced chassis technology.
Volvo has said that, beginning in 2019, all of its own new and redesigned models will be electric or hybrid. That allows for the use of more batteries and to improve the Polestar 1 performance characteristics. The Polestar 1 will roll off the production line in mid-2019. It's been christened rather underwhelmingly as "Polestar 1", but trust us - that's the only thing that's underwhelming here. This will take the form of an SUV-style Tesla Model X rival though, and will sit between Polestar 1 and Polestar 2 in terms of volume and pricing. That auto will be fully electric, one of five that Volvo and Polestar are planning to introduce between 2019 and 2021. The 2 is said to start production in late 2019 and take the fight directly to the Tesla Model 3 - meaning it would be an all-electric mid-sized sedan.
