Likely to be Polestar's Most Powerful Electric Car

Sweden's Polestar EV manufacturer has a new ace of a car up its sleeve.  It's called the Polestar 5 and is designed to be the company's flagship and most powerful vehicle. The EV is a large, grand tourer (GT), 4-door sedan-hatchback with a whopping 884 horsepower.  It is considerably more powerful than a Porsche Taycan Turbo S and that is saying something significant about the power this electric car will deliver.

New Technologies

The EV will hit the market in 2024.  The company says the powertrain that they are developing for the vehicle will set new performance levels for their high-performance cars.  It combines highly advanced, new electric motors that are coupled with advances in lightweight car technologies to create "stunning cars". It has a new, bonded aluminum chassis.  It's a chassis type that is usually reserved for supercars, providing them with lighter weight and more rigidity. Polestar has provided no data yet on speed and range but given the powertrain technology, it should be very fast, very responsive and very quick on recharging.

Tech Specs

Polestar 5 will be built on an 800-volt powertrain architecture. It will be powered by two electric motors, one on the front and the second on the rear axle.  It's expected to pump out 884 hp and 663 ft-lbs. of torque.  That would make it Polestar's most powerful vehicle and one of the most powerful EVs in its class on the global automotive market. 

Looks and Design

The prototype car recently unveiled by Polestar was covered with camouflage patterns that obscured many features.   But it is apparent that it's a sedan, with 4-doors, very sleek and aerodynamic looking and with some interesting curves on the sides of the car.  Polestar 5 is based on the company's Precept concept which received great reviews.  It will replace Polestar 1 as the brand's grand tourer flagship with double the hp of Polestar 1's 408 hp.  It appears to be an important and particularly powerful new EV for 2024.  Polestar is owned by China's automotive innovation giant Geely, which also owns Volvo.  For more news like this, Future Modes of Travel: 2020's & 2030's
