Redefining Electric Performance: Polestar 5 Prototype and Polestar 3 Unveiled at Goodwood
Polestar, the electric vehicle manufacturer, has unveiled its upcoming models at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. The event featured the dynamic debut of the Polestar 3 electric SUV and the latest version of the Polestar 5 prototype. In addition, the limited-run Polestar 2 BST edition 230 was also showcased. All three vehicles made thrilling runs up the hill twice a day during the festival.
While the Polestar 3 and Polestar 2 BST edition 230 have already been revealed, the Polestar 5 flagship model remains camouflaged as it is still in the verification prototype stage. The production version of the Polestar 5 is scheduled to be launched in 2024.
Official photos of the Polestar 5 offer a clearer view of the electric four-door GT prototype, featuring the final production bodywork with striking design elements such as aggressively sculpted front and rear bumpers, flush door handles, and a body panel in place of a rear window.
Expected to be launched in 2024, the Polestar 5 will boast an impressive dual motor AWD powertrain generating up to 871 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The car is targeted to have a range of 373 miles.
At the main Polestar stand, visitors can explore the Polestar 3, an updated version of the Polestar 2 with rear-wheel drive, and the Polestar electric roadster concept. The latter is anticipated to evolve into the Polestar 6 production model by 2026.
While the updated 2024 Polestar 2 and the limited-production BST edition 230 are currently available for online purchase, the Polestar 3 can be ordered online and will soon be showcased in Polestar Spaces worldwide. Deliveries of the Polestar 3 are expected to commence in the second quarter of 2024.
By the way, Polestar has recently shared the pricing and availability details for the 2024 Polestar 2 in the US. This updated version of the car features minor design changes, improved range, new motors, better performance, and additional standard features.
