Polestar 5 Electric GT is an 874-Horsepower Rocket Aimed at the Heart of the EV Segment

The Polestar 5 could end up as one of the most iconic electric four-door GTs

Polestar teased three new models, including the 5, for the first time back in September 2021. Almost one year later, a prototype version of the future Polestar 5 GT made its first appearance at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed where it will run up the iconic hill twice a day during the event in the “First Glance” group. A production version will arrive in 2024, next to the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 electric SUVs.

Today we finally got our first teaser image along with the confirmation that the official debut will happen in October 2022.

2023 Polestar 2 Specs, Pricing, and Complete Buyer’s Guide

The Polestar 2 has been updated for the 2023 model year, but is it enough to pose a threat to the Tesla Model 3?

The Polestar 2 has been with us for quite a while now, and over the years, the Swedish EV brand has been giving it incremental updates. For 2023, however, the updates are much more pronounced, especially under the skin, though it’s not significant enough to be considered a mid-cycle facelift. Due to these updates, the Polestar 2 has been given a price increase across the range. The Polestar 2 Single Motor now starts at $48,400 (+$2,500), while the Dual Motor version now starts at $51,900 (+$700). These prices do not yet consider the $7,500 federal tax credit and $1,400 destination fee.

Polestar O2 - A Sleek Electric Roadster Concept That Will Redefine Sports Cars

Polestar O2 - A Sleek Electric Roadster Concept That Will Redefine Sports Cars

With EVs making headway, the O2 concept from Polestar gives us a glimpse of what to expect from the Swedish brand in the future

This is the Polestar O2 Concept, a car that demonstrates what a fully electric Polestar roadster could look like. This concept also showcases the Swedish brand’s forward-thinking approach to material selection and sustainability.

The concept of an all-electric roadster isn’t new. Tesla’s first production car was the OG Roaster based on a Lotus platform. While we do know that an all-new Roadster is in the works, Polestar has also decided to show off its interpretation of a Roadster in the O2 concept. This is especially strange how there are not really many options on the market considering how SUV-frenzy everyone is at the moment.

Here’s A Compilation Of Every Car Commercial You’ll Be Seeing During The 2022 Super Bowl

From Nissan to BMW, here are all the car commercials that have been revealed ahead of the Super Bowl scheduled for 13th February

The Super Bowl is the biggest event of the year and companies spend a lot on advertisements. At this point, it’s kind of become a tradition, and even car companies don’t shy away from spending big bucks on commercials. Last year, Jeep stole our hearts with ‘The Middle’ ad, and the year before that, GMC brought out the ‘Quite Revolution’ in the form of the reincarnated Hummer – with a new spirit, of course.

This year, automakers have been a little more proactive and many of them have come out with Super Bowl commercials. The 56th American Football Championship is scheduled for 13th February, and here are the car commercials that are already released:

It is more powerful and sits higher than a regular Polestar 2

Polestar - aka Volvo’s EV spinoff - has only launched two models launched on the market so far: Polestar 1, which went out of production just after three years of its official announcement, and the Polestar 2, which is still in production and will actually be updated for the 2022 model year.

The company unveiled the Polestar 2 “Arctic Circle” concept - a one-off concept with features inspired by winter rally cars.

Top EVs That Can Pose a Threat To Tesla Model S Plaid

These upcoming EVs may present a threat to the mighty Tesla Model S Plaid

However, Tesla is no longer the only big player in the EV market and other manufacturers are also coming up with high-performance EVs.

Added performance through software updates seem to be the future

8 Amazing Things about the Polestar 2

8 Amazing Things about the Polestar 2

Polestar has gone above and beyond to create an affordable EV that’s tech savvy, practical, and safe

Once Volvo’s version of the AMG, Polestar has made a name for itself as the new EV division for Volvo. The first Polestar showed the market what a sports EV sedan should look like, and the new one is not any different. It has the proportions of a sedan but the ride height of a crossover, much like Forester stance save for the rear estate body. At $47,200, it’s cheap (for an EV) and a clean-cut looker, but the latest iteration of the Polestar is not just a pretty-faced environmental ambassador.

Can the Koenigsegg Gemera and the Polestar Precept Concept Morph Into an Awesome Electric Supercar?

It looks like the Koenigsegg Gemera and Polestar Precept Concept could be having a baby

Koenigsegg took the supercar world by storm in early 2020 with the Gemera, a four-seat grand tourer with a hybrid drivetrain that generates up to 1,700 horsepower. Around the same time, Polestar, Volvo’s performance division, unveiled the Precept, a fully electric sports sedan that previews at least one production model.

What do these companies have in common? Not much apart from the fact that both are from Sweden, but their latest Instagram posts suggest they might be working together on a car project.

The Precept Concept previews an all-electric competitor for the Porsche Taycan

The 2020 Polestar Precept is a concept car developed and built by Volvo’s high-performance division. Unveiled ahead of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, the 2020 Precept is Polestar’s first concept car since it became more than a sub-brand that tuned performance-oriented Volvos.

The 2020 Precept is also the first Polestar concept that’s based on a Volvo. Created to preview the brand’s future direction and "a clear expression of intent," the 2020 Precept takes a new approach design-wise when compared to production models like the Polestar 1 and Polestar 2. The Swedish company says that the name Precept was chosen "to emphasize the vehicle’s role in setting out Polestar’s intent as the contemporary electric performance brand." Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

2020 Polestar 2

2020 Polestar 2

It has challenged the Tesla 3 in its own yard and we think it is an evenly poised battle

Volvo has been more than vocal about its electrification ambitions. By 2025, the Swedish company plans to generate 50-percent of its sales volume from its fully electric vehicles. In fact, the automaker has decided to turn its sub-brand, Polestar, into a fully-electric performance brand. The Polestar 2 was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and was rather well received, but does it have in it to take on the Tesla Model 3?
