Polestar releases the first information about the powertrain of the 5. The Polestar 5 will be the flagship of Volvo’s sister brand, so it was already clear that the electric GT would not get a childish powertrain. Now we also know how strong the first low electric Polestar will be.
In 2024, Polestar will launch its last of a trio of announced models: the Polestar 5. It will be preceded by the 3 and 4, successively a large luxury and a smaller sporty electric SUV. Polestar saves the best for last, as it turns out. The Polestar 5 will get a very interesting powertrain.
The Polestar 5 – which is currently on display in packaged form during the Goodwood Festival of Speed - will get a 884 hp and 900 Nm drivetrain with two electric motors. To put that into perspective, the most powerful Porsche Taycan – the Turbo S – kicks it up to a peak power of 761 hp. Thanks to 800V on-board voltage, the Polestar 5 should also be full with power in a relatively short time, although the size of the battery pack is still unknown.
Polestar is developing its own base for the 5. The design of the production version of the Precept Concept shown in 2020 no longer holds many secrets. Polestar has already shown the car itself and AutoWeek already showed the patent drawings of the electric GT. This allowed us to show the car from all angles. On to 2024.
