With the Polestar 3, a full-fledged SUV is to be offered that is way ahead in terms of connectivity. It could look like that.
With its first two models, Polestar has shown how independent the Volvo subsidiary can be. After the plug-in hybrid coupé, Polestar 1 and the fully electric crossover Polestar 2, the Swedish-Chinese company is not only increasing its sales figures, the range of models is also growing. With the Polestar 3, a full-fledged SUV with the typical Polestar virtues is to be launched.
But not only the dimensions are new, the Polestar 3 is to be the first model of the brand to be manufactured in the USA and thus secure important market shares in North America. The AUTO BILD illustrator has already thought about what the electric car could look like from 2022 and the Polestar drew.
The Polestar 3 could visually differ significantly from the rest of the previous vehicle range. At the front, the indicated radiator grille is visibly reduced, and the headlights are also split into two for the first time. Despite everything, the Swedes can not take their daytime running lights in “Thor’s hammer” look and adapt them to the new lighting concept. On the side, however, the relationship to the Polestar 2 is still clear.
From the B-pillar, the roof drops clearly to the rear and ends in a boxy rear. A continuous strip of lights can be assumed here, which should be animated when the car is opened and closed. Despite the new design elements, Polestar remains true to itself and continues to focus on reducing, Scandinavian design with clear lines.
Top infotainment in the new Polestar 3
In terms of dimensions, the almost coupé-like SUV could move in the area of the VW Tiguan Allspace and be around 4.70 meters long. A platform that was developed from the ground up for electrified vehicles will serve as the substructure.
At Polestar, this should also mean that the engineers will also train the model in driving dynamics. The company has not yet given any technical data, but a battery capacity of around 100 kWh and an associated range of around 400 kilometers are realistic.
In terms of connectivity, there is a new version of the Android Automotive OS-based Infotainment to be expected. The system was introduced with the Polestar 2 and is one of the most advanced operating systems in vehicles.
