Polestar 6

Polestar announced Tuesday that its popular roadster concept, the Polestar 6, will officially go into production, but customers will have to wait until 2026 to see it. Despite the long wait, customers can already reserve one of the highly anticipated vehicles. 

CEO Thomas Ingenlath stated that an “overwhelming consumer and press response” helped the company in its decision to put the roadster into production. The company plans to launch three new models, including an SUV, a coupe-crossover, and a luxury sedan, by the end of 2025. Polestar went public in June and stated it is on track to deliver 50,000 vehicles by the end of this year. 

The Polestar 6 concept vehicle was first revealed in Los Angeles this past March. The model will feature up to 884 horsepower from a dual-motor powertrain that will allow the roadster to hit zero to 62 in just 3.2 seconds. It also features a retractable hardtop roof and an 800-volt electric architecture.   

The Swedish electric vehicle maker was founded as a joint venture between Volvo and Chinese automaker Geely. Polestar has said the company aims to sell 290,000 vehicles worldwide in 2025 and is on track to deliver 50,000 cars this year. The company went public in June via a merger with a special purpose acquisition company.
