Its own Polestar Day event in Los Angeles and “a project defining the future of the company”. Polestar conceived the introduction of new products for the coming years spectacularly, one of the most anticipated products is grinding its teeth, for example, on the Porsche Taycan. And he might even be better at something.
But let’s go in order. Next year, the SUV Polestar 3 and the SUV-coupe Polestar 4 will go on sale. It will be more interesting the following year, when the Polestar 5 will arrive with a brand new technological basis. It will then be shared with the open Polestar 6, which will see the light of day in 2026.
According to the engineers, the newly developed platform should achieve body rigidity at the level of a two-seater sports car, and at the same time it is said to be the lightest architecture in the given class. The “five” is made mainly of glued aluminum and impresses even with the first revealed parameters. It will be driven forward by two electric motors (making up the all-wheel drive) with an output of 874 horsepower and 900 newton meters of torque!
A separate chapter is charging, which promises to replenish 160 kilometers of range in just five minutes, without having any effect on the life of the battery. Polestar is working with StoreDot on the fast charging technology (XFC), which has previously developed efficient charging for smartphones, with which they reached 100 percent in just five minutes.
The car’s platform works with an 800V on-board network, but StoreDot advises that no “revolutionary batteries” are needed for the fast charging application, which other brands promise us. It is said that it will easily cooperate with current technologies. In practice, the technology will be presented in a year on the first functional prototype, and a year later it should already be part of production cars.
If Polestar’s technological innovations work, the engineers may have managed to solve two big pain points of electric cars – high weight and long waits at charging stations. But let’s not be surprised, it will be clear in two years at the latest. The question remains whether Polestar cars will be officially sold on the Czech market by then.
