Remember the gorgeous Polestar O2 Concept from March? It is no longer a concept.
Polestar has confirmed that it will put a version of the electric convertible into production, called the Polestar 6. The problem is that you’ll have to wait until 2026. At least that gives you plenty of time to save.
The car in the photo is a version of the Polestar 6 LA Concept. Only 500 units will be offered globally, each with a sky blue exterior paint color, light leather interior and unique wheels raised from O2 . concept.
Interested buyers (even those in Australia) were able to reserve a build seat for US$25,000 (~$35,500) and the car is expected to cost around US$200,000. ~$285,000) when it came out.
Essentially, the 6 will be built on Polestar’s upcoming bonded aluminum architecture. It will have an 800V architecture being developed for Polestar 5 grand tourerand is expected to pack 650kW power and 900Nm of torque.
All in all, you’ll hit 250 km/h, and Polestar is targeting a 100km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds.
Inside, the car pictured here has a vertical touchscreen, which shares many things with the Polestar 2 display. For now, it’s unlikely its software will look exactly the same in 2026 as it does now, with growth in the infotainment space.
Polestar hasn’t confirmed much about the cabin, but the O2 concept has a compact rear seat (+2). Freeing up space for those seats is the hood, which is a removable hardtop instead of a heavier, folding soft top.
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO said: “With overwhelming consumer and press response, we have decided to put this stunning roadster into production and I am delighted to have made it a reality. .
“Polestar 6 is the perfect combination of powerful electric performance and the thrill of fresh air from above.”
The recent upstart Polestar has a lot of new products coming out before the 6th.
Polestar says it wants to produce a truly climate-neutral vehicle by 2030.
