POLESTAR has released a teaser image of its upcoming 3 SUV ahead of its launch next year.
Arriving as the firmâ€™s first SUV, the Polestar 3 will be the first to be built in the US at the Volvo Cars production facility in Charleston, South Carolina.
Polestar is intending to make the 3 into â€˜one of the most climate-responsible cars ever madeâ€™, while high-end technologies such as autonomous-highway-piloting functions will be incorporated courtesy of cutting-edge LiDAR sensors.
Speaking at an event in New York, Thomas Ingenlath, Polestarâ€™s CEO, said: â€˜Polestar 3 is planned to be launched in 2022 as a premium electric performance SUV that will define the look of SUVs in the electric age. It will also be the first Polestar vehicle to be built in America.â€™
Ingenlath hosted investors at a series of events in New York, where he stated that Polestar was planning to launch a new car every year for the next three years â€“ starting with the 3. Itâ€™s expected that the car after the 3 will be the Polestar 4, a smaller electric performance SUV.
Following this will be the Polestar 5 electric performance four-door GT. Itâ€™s expected that this will be an evolution of the Polestar Precept concept that was released last year as a way of highlighting the firmâ€™s future plans and designs.
Ingenlath added: â€˜We are not a virtual company waiting to build factories and sell cars; we are an actual company already building and selling cars around the world. Our two award-winning cars are on the road in 14 markets globally and we expect our global sales volume to reach around 29,000 vehicles this year.â€™
