This Week In Trucks: Volume 35

2024 Polestar 3

Polestar has officially unveiled its first true SUV, the Polestar 3. The sporty five-seater EV draws design inspiration from the Precept concept car unveiled back in 2020 and boasts a healthy dose of performance and driver assistance.

The dual-motor configuration features a rear-axle bias and produces 489 horsepower and 620 lb-ft of torque. Adding the Performance Pack pushes the numbers up to 5`7 and 671, respectively. Maximum range is 610 kilometres courtesy of a 111-kilowatt-hour battery.

When properly optioned, the 3 may be equipped with three cameras and four ultrasonic sensors powered by NVIDIA processors to provide accurate real-time data eventually enabling Level 3 autonomous driving via a later software update.
