Polestar has announced that the Polestar 1 electric performance hybrid GT will have its European debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show. For a quick refresher, the plug-in hybrid coupe packs 600 horsepower and 738 lb-ft. of torque. With an electric driving range of 93 miles, the Polestar 1 has the longest driving range of any plug-in hybrid.
“We are looking forward to exhibiting at the Geneva Motor Show and are excited to hear feedback and see the reactions from the public on our first car and our new brand,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer at Polestar.
The Polestar 1 originally debuted in Shanghai last October and production is expected to kick off by mid-2019.
“Our stand in Geneva will be a powerful incarnation of what our brand embodies: uncompromised, pure and progressive design.”
The Polestar 1 is just the beginning of Polestar’s electric future with two additional fully electric models already in the works. The Polestar 2, an electric Tesla Model 3 rival, is expected to enter production by the end of 2019. The Polestar 3 will be the third model, which will take the form of an electric SUV.
