Earlier this year Polestar revealed their O2 Roadster concept. The Swedish automaker said on August 16 the response to the concept was so positive they were going to make it a reality with the Polestar 6, set to debut in 2026.

Following the announcement, Polestar opened up reservations for the Polestar 6 LA Concept edition, a limited edition run of just 500 units. Reserving a spot in line required a $25,000 deposit, but that was apparently no concern for potential owners.

Today Polestar announced all 500 reservations were spoken for within one week.

“The high interest from our customers shows that a stunning electric roadster like Polestar 6 has high relevance in the sportscar arena. The open-top-plus-electric combination is clearly one that appeals to even the most die-hard petrolheads,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

Seeing the strong demand for the limited edition Polestar 6 LA Concept, the automaker will open up reservations for the regular version later this year. Polestar did not say how much it will cost to reserve one of the regular builds.

With the Polestar 6, the company plans to launch four new electric vehicles (EVs) within five year, a move it claims is more than any other EV startup on the market today.

Their current inventory includes the Polestar 1, which is actually a plug-in hybrid, and the Polestar 2 electric sedan. Next up will be the Polestar 3, an electric SUV set to hit the market in October 2022.

Following that will be the Polestar 4, an electric performance SUV in 2023, and the Polestar 5, an electric performance 4-door GT based on the Precept concept car in 2024.
