Polestar is one of the new disruptors in the EV space. As Volvo's electric-vehicle brand, it aims to combine high-tech features with a modern Swedish look. With a limited production run of only 1,500 units and a price tag starting at $155,000, the Polestar 1 is Polestar’s exclusive collector’s item plug-in hybrid.
Driving the front wheels, Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid has a turbo and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor to make a combined 375 horsepower. To power the rear, this PHEV has a pair of electric motors, each producing 114 horsepower. This combination means the Polestar 1 has all-wheel drive and a total system output of 619 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque.
The interior of the Polestar 1 has a minimal and sophisticated Swedish design similar to its Volvo counterparts, the Volvo S90 sedan and V90 station wagon. In terms of technology, the Polestar 1 has a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
