The Polestar 4 has officially launched in Europe and Australia following its debut in China last year.
Priced starting at €63,200 in Europe and AUD$81,500 in Australia, the Polestar 4 comes in a long range variant with either a single or dual motor version. The Polestar 4 introduces a novel design approach, notably eliminating the rear window, a feature that has garnered much attention. This design choice, according to Polestar, offers an immersive experience for rear occupants.
The rear view is replaced by a high-definition screen linked to a roof-mounted camera, providing a unique perspective for drivers and passengers alike.
Built on Geely’s Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA), the Polestar 4 comes in two variants: a single-motor version with rear-wheel drive, offering 200 kW of power and 343 Nm of torque, and a dual-motor layout providing a formidable 400 kW and 686 Nm of torque. Both models boast a 100 kWh battery, enabling impressive ranges of up to 609 km for the single motor and 580 km for the dual motor, as per WLTP estimates.
In terms of performance, the Polestar 4 is no slouch. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds, making it the fastest in the Polestar lineup. This performance is complemented by a semi-active suspension in the all-wheel drive model, balancing comfort and dynamic driving.
The Polestar 4 features a 15.4-inch infotainment screen powered by Android Automotive OS, integrated with Google services and over-the-air (OTA) update capabilities. It also includes SuperVision Advanced Driver Assistance System, offering an suite of safety and convenience features.
The electric SUV has the ability to charge up to 200 kW for both drive variants. Additionally, the vehicle is equipped with a 22 kW on-board charger for AC charging. Polestar has also incorporated vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality, allowing the car to power external devices, though vehicle-to-home (V2H) and vehicle-to-grid V2G) features are expected to be introduced later.
In terms of design, the Polestar 4 interior features materials such as 100% recycled PET textiles, bio-attributed MicroTech vinyl, and traced leather from ethically sourced farms. The car’s exterior dimensions and aerodynamic features underscore its unique positioning as an SUV coupé. According to Polestar, it also has the lowest carbon footprint at launch among the company’s models, thanks to the use of green energy and low-carbon aluminium in its production.
