Polestar, a Swedish electric car manufacturer, will premiere its first electric SUV, Polestar 3, on Oct. 12, 2022, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Polestar is built on a new, all-electric technology base, developed by and shared with Volvo Cars, featuring high-tech components such as centralized core computing from NVIDIA and advanced safety systems from Volvo Cars and industry partners including Zenseact, Luminar, and Smart Eye.

“Polestar 3 defines the SUV for the electric age and in designing it, we addressed some of the fundamentals of the archetype: proportions, stance and aerodynamics,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.

Launch versions of Polestar 3 will feature a rear-biased dual motor powertrain with electric torque vectoring via a dual clutch system on the rear electric motor. Adaptive dual-chamber air suspension and active dampers will be standard features, which allow Polestar 3 to adjust the dampers to suit road conditions once every two milliseconds (500 Hz).

The optional Performance Pack enables maximum output of 380 kW and 910 Nm, along with chassis tuning for the active dampers and air suspension. Polestar’s signature Swedish gold details are also added, including valve caps, seat belts, and a laser-etched interior light strip.
