25.11.2021Polestar reveals near-series version of Polestar 5
Polestar has previewed the final design of the Polestar 5. The four-door, electric performance GT based on the Polestar Precept study is scheduled for market launch in 2024.
The vehicle shown remains close to the initial concept, at least in terms of basic shape. The proportions are more or less the same as the Precept presented in spring 2020, the flat front and the curved roof arch, for example. The rear seems to be a little flatter. However, the basic light design has been retained here too.
One change that does stand out is the disappearance of the bar for the lidar sensors mounted above the Precept’s windscreen. The doors, which initially opened in opposite directions, probably won't make it into series production either. The grey sedan previewed has door handles on the rear doors, suggesting a forward opening.
So far, Polestar has not yet given any details about the drive technology of the Polestar 5. However, the ‘Luxury Sport GT 4-door’ Polestar 5 was said to be launched in 2024 – and to have a target range of 600+ kilometres. In terms of price, the model is to be priced in the region of a Porsche Panamera.
“With the Precept docu-series, we are deliberately doing something that car manufacturers don’t normally do – we are taking a look behind the scenes and transparently showing how we are turning this stunning concept car into reality,” says Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
“It makes me very proud to see how much of the concept car’s design has gone into the Polestar 5 – a great achievement by our designers and engineers.”
With the expansion of both existing and new markets and the introduction of the models 3, 4 and 5, Polestar is aiming to increase its annual sales to 290,000 vehicles by the end of 2025.
