Take a look at the new Polestar 4 EV SUV
Showcased as the Swedish marque’s fastest vehicle to date, the new Polestar 4 EV SUV is the company’s third fully battery-powered model, and second SUV in a row. The car was revealed this week at the Shanghai Auto Show.
With two powertrain options, the standard model has a single motor that produces 253 ft lbs of torque and 272 horsepower for the rear wheels. The 102 kWh battery pack gives it a 300-mile range. The other model has two motors that work together to produce 544 horses and 506 pound-feet of torque.
With full power, this EV SUV can go from 0 to 62 mph in under 3.8 seconds, outpacing all of the company’s prior vehicles. Since the batteries in all variants are identical, the range of the dual-motor type will be shorter. Bidirectional charging and DC fast charging are also compatible with the crossover.
The coupe styled electric SUV features a very distinctive design choice. You could miss it at first glance, but the new Polestar 4 EV SUV has excluded the rear window. Instead, the driver’s rear view will be utilized through a camera, and the car’s fastback style glass roof will extend all the way to the back of the car.
In comparison to the Polestar 3, the four-door 4 is shorter in length and height. With dramatic split headlights, sculpted side panels, and full-width taillights, it has an entirely new front fascia. On the base, the EV sits on a set of four-Y-spoke, 20 or 22-inch wheels with Pirelli or Michelin rubber.
The minimal interior includes a 15.6-inch touchscreen entertainment system mounted on top of the center dashboard. The dash’s 10.2-inch digital cluster and 14.7-inch head-up driver’s display are also featured. The fitted knit upholstery is the same as that in the 2020 Precept concept and is made entirely of recycled polyester. Nine airbags, adjustable ambient lighting, and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system are included as well.
Starting at $60,000 the new Polestar 4 EV SUV will first launch in China later this year, followed by a global launch.
