Electric vehicle maker Polestar said on Tuesday it was expanding its lineup to include a convertible with more than 870 horsepower with recycled polyester upholstery. Customers can now start booking build slots online.

The Polestar 6, based on the O₂ electric vehicle, will enter production in 2026.

Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, called the next roadster "a perfect combination of powerful electrical performance and the thrill of fresh air with the top down."

The company announced some features target as:

  • Price: 200 thousand dollars
  • Speed ​​from 0-100km/h: 3.2 seconds
  • Maximum speed: 250 km/h
  • Power: 650 kW
  • Autonomy (WLTP): More than 600km
  • driving line: dual engine
  • Electrical architecture: 800 V

However, the company already confirms some things

The auto giant has confirmed that the convertible will use the same aluminum platform and 800-volt architecture that will underpin its future Polestar 5 GT.

Polestar will do 500 limited edition models, the 6 LA, named after the city where the electric roadster made its debut. These models will come with a sky blue exterior and leather interior.

Polestar, which made its Nasdaq debut in June, outlined aggressive growth plans. The company exited Volvo and Geely to merge with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Gorges Guggenheim, with a valuation of $20 billion.

The automaker raised $890 million in the deal to help finance a three-year growth planwhich includes expanding its global operations, adding a second shift at its factory in China and starting production of the Polestar 3 in October at Volvo's plant in South Carolina.

Polestar with a promising future

The company also plans to introduce a mid-size Polestar 4 crossover in 2023 and the Polestar 5 GT four-door in 2024.

In July, the company said it is on a good path to sell 50,000 cars this year. The Polestar 2 is currently the only model the automaker sells, after the discontinued 600-horsepower plug-in hybrid 1.

The company's ambitious plans call for expansion to 30 countries by the end of 2023 and annual sales of 290,000 cars by 2025 - about 10 times the sales of 2021.
