Polestar is cheating (but that's not a bad thing) - AutoReview.nl

You know that joke about that $200,000 open sports car that sold out in a week? He wasn't. Yes, all 500 units of the Polestar 6 were sold out, but now Polestar says there could be more.

Let's go back in time: more than a year ago there was suddenly the Polestar 6. An electric open sports car with room for two. With a spectacular design and two electric motors with almost 900 hp. A nice toy for the rich of the earth. That's why it was unveiled in the expensive neighborhood of Pebble Beach in California. Although the target price of $200,000 is not absurdly high. The Polestar 6 was sold out within a week. Taylor Swift laughs at this, but that's pretty fast for a car.

The new Fiat 500

Discover the city in style. Get into the 100% electric Fiat 500 from €359 per month and benefit from €2950 government subsidy.

But do not be sad. According to autocar.co.uk has the CEO of Polestar, Thomas Ingenlath, said that production of the Polestar 6 will not stop as long as there is demand for it. The CEO does not say whether this demand actually exists, but he does say the following: "The great interest from our customers indicates that there is a high relevance for a stunning electric roadster such as the Polestar 6." In other words: there is a demand for such a kind of car.

We keep our word and, upon request, will email you a newsletter every week with interesting developments in the car market.

So there is hope for those who, after the debut of the Polestar 6, had a week's holiday in a nature house without internet, missed the roadster completely and later fell in love. In this case, we still advise you if the wiedeweerga reserve a production spot on Polestar's Dutch site. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The fact that production of the Polestar 6 may be increased is great, but less good news for those who have already purchased a copy. The car is suddenly less exclusive. It's a bit like when you show up on the red carpet in a ridiculously expensive designer dress or tailor-made suit and you are shocked to see someone wearing the exact same clothes. You feel a bit cheated.

The production version of the Polestar 6 will be available in 2026. It will sprint to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h. Polestar will first focus on the three models that come before: the Polestar 3of Polestar 4 and the Polestar 5. The latter is a sporty-looking sedan with Tesla Model S / Porsche Taycan-traits.
