Polestar is the latest to announce its Q2 delivery figures, and like other EV automaker they were able to achieve their best-ever second quarter results, delivering approximately 15,800 vehicles, marking a significant 36% growth compared to the previous year.
The month of June was particularly strong for Polestar, with deliveries growing by 73% year-on-year. With a record global delivery figure of around 27,900 vehicles through the first half of the year, Polestar says it is on track to meet its target of delivering 60,000-70,000 vehicles by the end of 2023.
In addition to its delivery success, Polestar has plans to expand its physical presence. Over 20 permanent Polestar Spaces, the company’s dedicated retail locations, are set to open in the coming months. These larger facilities will accommodate the growing lineup of Polestar vehicles. Ingenlath also shared that the first display cars of the Polestar 3, the brand’s upcoming SUV, will be arriving at these Spaces soon.
“More than 20 permanent Polestar Spaces are planned to open over the coming months, as we expand our footprint and shift from temporary locations into larger facilities that can accommodate our growing line-up. I’m really pleased that the first Polestar 3 display cars will be arriving in our Spaces in the coming weeks.”
Last week Polestar also announced it was joining the growing list of automakers adopting Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS). Polestar will provide its existing EV owners with an adapter in order to access the Supercharger network in 2024, and will add the NACS to its future EVs in 2025.
