Polestar 1 (2019) 600-HP Hybrid Sports Car from Volvo

The company’s first car, Polestar 1, will start production in mid-2019. As an Electric Performance Hybrid, the car can travel up to 150 km on pure electric power alone – the longest full electric range of any hybrid car on the market. In combination with its four-cylinder Volvo Drive-E engine, the Polestar 1 delivers 600 horsepower and 1,000Nm of torque, placing the car firmly within the performance car segment. Polestar is Volvo Car Group’s performance road car brand. From 2017, Polestar will become a new separately-branded electric high-performance car company, offering a portfolio of bespoke Polestar cars. Polestar will enjoy specific technological and engineering synergies with Volvo Cars and benefit from significant economies of scale as a result of its connection to Volvo. These synergies will allow it to design, develop and build world beating electrified high performance cars.
