2024 Polestar 3 To Be Built in USA

Cars, News I By Justin Cornelison I October 12, 2022

The Polestar 3 was unveiled in a livestream today.  The brands first-ever EV SUV will be start production in China, and will also be built at their South Carolina plant from 2024.

The base dual-motor all-wheel drive variant expected to start at $83,900 will have 489 horsepower and 620 lb-ft (840 Nm), allowing it to accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds. Polestar will also offer a $6,000 Performance Pack that will boost the two motors’ combined output to 517 horsepower and 671 lb-ft (910 Nm), which drops the time needed to sprint to 60 mph to 4.6 seconds; both versions have a limited top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h).

For the dual-motor model, the estimated range is around 300 miles and for the Performance it will drop to around 270 miles.

It is $15k more than a Tesla model Y, but to our eyes the finish level makes the Y look like a high school shop project.  Exterior is slightly too conventional, but with so many SUVs that is a tough problem too avoid.
