First Look – Polestar 3 and Polestar 5

Polestar is back at the Goodwood Festival of Speed with some of its forthcoming models making their dynamic debut at the iconic event – the Polestar 3 and Polestar 5.

And what an exhibition they have put on. In the main Polestar booth, the new Polestar 3 stands tall and proud, beckoning festivalgoers to stop by and ogle.

Polestar has updated the Polestar 3 in the looks department, with the front facade now portraying a more futuristic look. The practical SUV body doesn’t compromise on performance either, with the rear apron showcasing thin slats that help channel negative pressure rearwards, decreasing the car’s overall drag.

The inside remains quintessentially Polestar, with the exception of a new central Bowens & Wilkens speaker unit. New seats provide additional comfort for drivers on long journeys.

The Polestar 3 isn’t a slouch either, with 380 kW (517hp) to boot. It’s Polestar 5 prototype sibling is even more imposing with 650 kW (884 hp). Both cars were demonstrated on the Goodwood hill climb.

“We love showing our latest prototypes to the public at Goodwood. With production now starting in the first quarter of 2024, it’s time for Polestar 3 to take its first-ever run up the famous Hill. The SUV for the electric age looks fantastic and will be an exceptional car to own. The latest Polestar 5 verification prototype is here, too. Developed in the UK, Goodwood is like home turf for our electric 4-door GT,” comments Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

The Polestar 3 is already available for pre-orders in certain territories, with Singapore speculated to open its door come Q4 of 2023. Deliveries are expected in late 2024.

Meanwhile, the Polestar 5 prototype, the production evolution of the Polestar Precept, is planned for its official launch in 2024.
