Polestar has announced it will debut its next electric vehicle (EV), the Polestar 4, at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month. Ahead of the debut, Polestar has also announced its Q1 2023 deliveries, both on a global basis and for deliveries in the US.
According to the Swedish automaker they delivered approximately 12,000 EVs between January and March. Of those, 2,340 were delivered to customers in the US. While this global figure is down considerably from the previous quarter, when Polestar delivered over 21,000 EVs from October to December 2022, it is a 26% increase when compared to the first quarter last year.
Polestar called their Q1 performance a “successful start of sales for the year,” a year in which it hopes to deliver 80,000 cars around the world. That would represent an annual growth rate of nearly 60%.
The majority of those deliveries will be the Polestar 2, but towards the end of the year they will also start to include the Polestar 3 electric SUV, which is set to enter production later this year. Soon after will come the Polestar 4, which will get its global debut at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 18, 2023.
Polestar only shared one image of the Polestar 4 (seen above), not revealing much about its design. The automaker described it as an “electric SUV coupé” that will feature “design cues and sustainability enhancements initially showcased in Polestar’s concept cars.”
“Polestar 4 is not simply a modified version of our first SUV. Instead, we reconsidered the entire design to create a new breed of SUV coupé,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.
We should get to see the full specs of the Polestar 4, but the automaker teased it will be fastest Polestar production car to date.
