Next year, Polestar, an electric brand spun off from Volvo and Geely, will launch its third electric vehicle. It’ll be called, predictably, the Polestar 3. But unlike its first two cars, this will be Polestar’s first SUV.
For the first time, the E.V. company released the first official photo of the third electric car, giving a very obscured glimpse of the size and shape of the compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).
The Polestar 1 is a sleek and sporty hybrid sports car, while the Polestar 2 is a small sedan with a range of more than 250 miles that starts at just under $60,000.
As well as the Polestar 3, it will be the company’s first car to be manufactured in the U.S. In the beginning, it made its two cars in China. The three will be built at the Volvo Cars manufacturing center in Ridgeville, South Carolina, USA.
Polestar 1, which is manufactured from a facility in Chengdu since 2017, will cease production before the end of the year. Just in time for Polestar 3 to take off in 2022.
It is unclear precisely what the upcoming SUV will look like. Still, it will be all-electric, like the Polestar 2, and feature a Google operating system for navigation, music, and other infotainment functions.
