Polestar 1 To Debut In North America At Monterey Car Week

JUL 31 2018 BY MARK KANE 4

Volvo’s performance and EV brand Polestar will launch the Polestar 1 World Tour at the Monterey Car Week from 23-26 August.

The U.S. is considered a major market for the first plug-in hybrid model, the Polestar 1, as nearly 200 customers have placed deposits – more than in any other country.

The car will be shown for a few days, including at the famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, joining other high-profile electric concept from Audi.

“In addition its the presence at the Polestar pavilion on Peter Hay Hill at Pebble Beach, the Polestar 1 will also make an appearance at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering on Friday 24 August. This event sees some of the world’s rarest cars shown on the rolling greens of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel Valley.

On Sunday 26 August, the Polestar 1 will be positioned amongst some of the newest automotive exotica on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Concept Lawn is a fitting environment for the Polestar 1 – a car whose concept car design disguises its production-ready status.

Adding to the ceremonious nature of the event, Polestar CEO and awarded designer Thomas Ingenlath has been selected as an honorary judge in the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.”

Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer at Polestar said:

“It’s great to bring Polestar to America. North America is a major market for our new brand and we have received great feedback and high interest in the Polestar 1 from our American customers. So far, nearly 200 customers have placed deposits in the United States alone – the largest number of any country. Now it’s their turn to see the car in person and in a beautiful environment.”

“The invitation to be an honorary judge at the Concours d’Elegance is a great honour for me. As a car designer you take so much inspiration by looking at the diverse mix of the world’s most famous and beautiful historic cars alongside today’s avant-garde designs. It will be a truly unique experience.”

Its a coupe. Comparing it with Tesla Model-S is nonsense. As usual another Tesla Killer.
Coupe’s are going down in sales.

Polestar 2 will soon come

So what

This car is priced like $150K. A 2 door coupe meant for a different market than Teslas!. It is a hybrid, not a full on EV…… Just to compare, you can get a Porsche Taycan and a Model 3 for this price!.
