There’s currently just one Polestar model on sale right now, the Polestar 2. This won’t last much longer. The Polestar 3, Polestar 4, and Precept are all on the way. By 2025, the electric-only brand will have a complete lineup available. Volvo, which recently increased its stake in Polestar to 49.5 percent, will be EV-only by 2030, but Polestar will be the brand for enthusiasts. That said, who does it have in its crosshairs? That’d be Porsche.
Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath told Germany’s Auto, Motor, und Sport clarified the long-established brand is its target. “We are competing with Porsche for the best electrically powered premium sports car.” Porsche’s only EV right now is the Taycan, but a fully electrified Macan is due next year. Following that, the next-generation 718 Boxster/Cayman will get the full battery treatment. Ingenlath made no mention of a potential sports car, unfortunately.
