Polestar is an independent brand of Volvo’s high-end electrified models. Volvo has launched an independent electrification brand in the hope of enhancing its competitiveness with new car companies. Currently, two cars have been released under the Polestar brand, namely Polestar 1 and Polestar 2.
Recently, overseas media exposed a group of Polestar 1 model official map, the car’s latest news has also been exposed. The pre-sale price of the new car is 1.45 million yuan and is expected to be delivered by the end of this year.
Back to the new car itself, luxury and refinement are a selling point for new cars, unlike the traditional cost-first concept of car-building. In the manufacturing process, the new car does not take into account the cost of process and materials. The front face is a straight waterfall grille, which is equipped with a bit of array material, the details are full of texture. Polaris’s Peugeot accentuates the car’s refinement.
In the interior section, the crystal head is very conspicuous. The last trace of the new car and Volvo can be seen at the centre screen and at the outlet. The centre cover is covered with carbon fiber to give the car a full racetrack feel. The seat is a leather perforated seat, which is luxurious and comfortable.
In addition to the high face value, performance is the car’s biggest bright spot. Powered, the new car will be equipped with a 2.0T supercharged, turbocharged and electric motor-powered hybrid system with a combined maximum power of 455kW, a combined peak torque of up to 1000N.m, and a 100 km acceleration of only 3.8S. This level of motivation has reached the level of over-running.
In fact, not only can only look at the performance parameters of the vehicle, can take care of the details of the vehicle at the same time, but also to ensure its durability and reliability, is a vehicle-building power embodiment.
Volvo, as an established car company, clearly has enough experience in this area. On the contrary, the major new car companies, the continued range of high, acceleration performance again excellent, can not even match their own body gap tolerance can not be guaranteed, talk about the durability and reliability of which vehicles.
The emergence of Polestar will also directly threaten Tesla’s dominance in the electric car industry. The Polestar 2, which will go on sale soon, will go directly to Tesla’s Model 3, which overlaps in both power and price.
The Polestar 1, though a hybrid, will also pose a significant threat to Tesla’s flagship Model X. In terms of product strength, Polestar 1 is even better in some ways. So who would you choose compared to the Tesla Model X for the $1.45 million Polestar 1?
