Polestar 3 Coming In 2021 In Form Of Coupe-Style Electric SUV

MAR 8 2019 BY MARK KANE 11

Polestar 2 is unveiled, Polestar 3 is hinted

According to Polestar COO Jonathan Goodman, the third model in the lineup will debut in 2021. It will be an all-electric coupe-style SUV. Probably kind of like the Audi e-tron Sportback or Volkswagen I.D. CROZZ.

Goodman told Digital Trends that the new models will sit between the base Polestar 2 and halo Polestar 1:

“We’ve produced the two bookends. You’ve already got the top end and the bottom end, and all of the Polestar models that we launch thereafter will be positioned in between those two. The one that comes after the Polestar 2 is the Polestar 3. It’s a coupe-style SUV, and we will release it in the back end of 2021,”

Polestar lineup:

  • Polestar 1 – plug-in hybrid halo car
  • Polestar 2 – unveiled in 2019 Geneva Motor Show
  • Polestar 3 – to be coupe-style SUV in 2021

All further Polestar after the 1 are to be all-electric and named simply 2, 3, 4…

Nice. The Polestar 2 looks awesome. If it’s anything like that it’ll be a hit like Model Y, E-tron, Crozz

Eh, I’m not a fan of the car’s shape, but I like the interior and the concept. Hopefully I’ll like the Polestar 3 better.

You are mixing up things. The Polestar 2 will be a sedan like Model 3. The Polestar 3 will be a crossover like Model Y. (ID. CROZZ will be a smaller crossover.)

Better late than never. But model Y will be my next car

I thought the P2 was already a coupe-like crossover.

What gave you that idea? They are explicitly positioning it as a Model 3 competitor… And the picture above shows very clearly that it’s a sedan.

Meticulously following Tesla’s playbook. Well there is worse examples to follow…..

Well, no car based on a Lotus Elise, but based on a Volvo. No model S and X type, but a smaller vehicle, more like Model 3. Then maybe a bit larger SUV. Similar at least.
I’m sure they will share the basic platform with Volvo cars – since they’ll crash test the vehicles in Gothenburg/Gøteborg at Volvos safety center. Don’t have to share platform of course – but will save them a ton of money. Volvo have said they will release EVs too (But will probably release a bit later then the new brand).

If they indeed share a platform, the cars will be inferior and too expensive in volume production, since Volvo doesn’t make a dedicated BEV platform.

Fantastic. I’ll drive over in my Tesla Model 3 and take a peek.

Exactly! Every time we take my wife’s Volvo to our local dealer for service, I make a point of following her in my Model 3 so they see us driving off in that while they change the oil etc in the Volvo. She drives a 2015 S60 which I really liked when we bought it, and now it’s just hideously primitive to drive.
