The forthcoming Polestar 5 electric 4-door GT is due to deliver 650 kW (884 hp) of power and 900 Nm of torque from its all-wheel drive powertrain.
An evolution of the Precept concept car first shown in 2020, it will also feature 800V architecture, allowing ultra-rapid charging.
Polestar says that a unique bonded lightweight aluminium chassis is a prime factor in delivering the high-performance vehicle dynamics.
A development prototype of the Polestar 5 will be seen in public for the first time at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed when it drives up Goodwood hill (23-26 June).
The Polestar 5 is planned for launch in 2024 and is the third of three new EVs expected to be launched by the company in the coming three years, following the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 electric SUVs.
Polestar’s YouTube documentary series shows how the company is transforming the Precept concept into the production Polestar 5 in a lot more detail than is usually revealed during a car project.
