Everything drivers need to know about Polestar’s electric vehicle lineup

Polestar is one of the new disruptors in the electric vehicle (EV) space. Owned by Volvo-parent company Geely, it aims to combine high-tech features and sports car driving dynamics with a modern Swedish look. Polestar was purchased by Volvo and Geely in 2017 to become its standalone electric sports car brand. Beginning with the Polestar 1 sports plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), Polestar has since gone fully electric as it plans to have a five-model lineup by 2026.
