Posted on

2024 Polestar 3The 2024 Polestar 3 joins the influx of electrified SUVs that are flooding the market, and it does so with a stylish appearance and the necessary high-riding seating position. Although the Polestar 2 might be viewed as either a tall car or a low-riding SUV, Volvo’s spinoff-EV brand has only manufactured cars thus far. The 3, which will go on sale sometime in 2023, won’t cause any such confusion.

Polestar’s most recent Google-based infotainment system comes standard and runs on a sizable 14.5-inch touchscreen display. The Polestar 3’s gauge cluster is located on a secondary 9.0-inch display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are expected to be included as standard equipment, and all versions will also include four USB-C charging connections, Bluetooth, and in-dash navigation. A 25-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, which is a part of the Plus package, will also be included on the first batch of Polestar 3s but is anticipated to be made optional after the SUV’s first model year.

2024 Volvo Polestar 3 Powertrain

The Polestar 3 comes with a dual-motor drivetrain that comes in two different strengths. The Performance trim has 517 horsepower instead of the base setup’s 489 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard, but Polestar claims that the powerplant is rear-biased. The 3 will sprint to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, according to Polestar, thanks to the 3’s more powerful electric motors. Every 3 will have an active damper adaptable suspension system, but the Performance package also comes with a suspension that has been adjusted for sport. When we have an opportunity, we’ll test drive the new Polestar 3 and update this article with our thoughts on the ride. The identical 107-kWh battery pack that powers each model may be charged at up to 250 kW via a DC fast charging connector. According to Polestar, that is sufficient to charge the battery from 10 to 80% in as little as 30 minutes. The regular model is expected to provide approximately 300 miles of driving after a full charge; the predicted range for the more potent Performance model is somewhat lower at 270 miles.

2024 Volvo Polestar 3 Price & Release date

The Polestar 3 will go on sale at the same time as the model’s formal launch on October 12 at 1 p.m. ET. Early 2023 is when production is anticipated to start in both China and the United States. The Polestar 3 is described by Ingenlath as a “high-end large luxury EV, with a strong, individual brand character,” despite Polestar not having provided any pricing information. Given that indication and the fact that the current Polestar 2 sedan dual motor has a starting price of $51,900, it is likely that the 3 will cost a little bit more when it is released. For the purpose of comparison, the starting prices for the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Tesla Model Y, Audi e-tron, and BMW iX are $46, 895, $65, 990, and $84, 100, respectively. The sampling at least provides an indication of the lowest and upper bounds for the section, even though we are unsure of exactly where the Polestar 3 will settle in terms of size and power.
