Polestar 3 series ranges from $75,500 to $111,000
The Polestar 3 launches on October 3, the same day orders open for the battery-powered SUV continuously against Porsche Cayenne. The comparisons are accurate, based on comments from Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath at the European News Automotive Congress. He said the first SUV of his brand will have a starting price of 75,000 euros and output around 110,000 euros. Because the euro and the US dollar are roughly equal, prices are likely to be similar in dollars, meaning somewhere between $75,650 and $110,950. The 2022 Porsche Cayenne starting at $73,650, Cayenne The GTS – six versions lower than the flagship Turbo GT – starts at $114,550.
This means that, like the Cayenne, the 3 will likely be mid-size and financial Tesla Model Y and Model X. The Model Y Performance is 7 inches shorter than the Cayenne and starts at $69,990, the Model X with dual-motor AWD is 5 inches longer than the Cayenne and starts at $120,990.
We don’t have specs on the 3 yet, but we do know it will pack a two-motor powertrain. In $53,300 Polestar 2 liftback sedan with dual engines, output reaches 408 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque as standard, reaching 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Those numbers can be upgraded to 476 hp and 502 lb-ft for buyers who choose the Performance Package, which drops the 60 mph sprint to 4.2 seconds. Cayennes in the same price bracket max out at 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of combined output on Cayenne E-Hybridthe Porsche It takes 4.7 seconds to reach 60 mph when equipped with the Sport Active Package. All of which means the model is set to challenge a Porsche, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the 3 were even more powerful. If Polestar hits its range estimate of 372 miles on the WLTP cycle, our version could do better than 300 miles on EPA test protocol.
Set of 3 will be produced later this year with battery-electric coming soon Volvo XC90 alternative, supposedly Embla. Polestar will double its assault on the Germans next year with a Porsche Macan, a Polestar 4 rival.
