Nope, this is not a Volvo, it is also not the Volvo Polestar, it’s called the Polestar 1, from the new car brand; Polestar. Of course, there is quite a bit of Volvo in the car, that’s because Polestar used to be Volvo’s tuning division, like M is to BMW and AMG is to Mercedes. And just as AMG is becoming its own brand, Polestar is following suit.
But unlike AMG’s muscle-V8 and power-V12 goodness, Polestar bringing fuel efficiency and electricity to the table. And they’re not fooling around. The Polestar 1 has a 2.0 Turbo engine with 2 electricity-powered engines backing it up. Altogether, the car produces 600 horsepower with 1000 Nm of torque. Yes, a 1000 Nm, that’s the same as a Mercedes S65 AMG V12 Bi-turbo!
Polestar is planning to produce many more cars, the 1 being their launch product, which means we’ll be seeing SUV’s, Convertibles and hatchbacks in the near future. And by seeing the beautiful Polestar 1’s interior and exterior, we can only applaud this development. With the Tesla’s in this world, the Porsche Mission E coming up and the Polestar 1 brand launch, we’re happy that ‘saving the world from fossil-fuels’ has definitely entered sexy.
