The third product from this new Sino-Swedish company will be the Polestar 3. It will make its debut in 2023 as an all-electric SUV with a focus on style, performance, and luxury. The company states that the global debut will happen in October 2022. Not long after this, the Polestar 3’s release date in the US should be revealed; manufacture is expected to start in early 2023 on US soil.
2023 Polestar 3 EV Crossover Price
The Polestar 3 is expected to cost between €75,000 and €110,000 (about $76,000 and $111,000 MSRP) in 2023. Although the precise price in the USA is still unknown, the pricing range offers us an idea of competitors to compare it to. The starting price of the 2023 BMW iX is $84,100, while that of the 2023 Audi e-Tron is $70,800. The BMW iX M60, which costs $105,100 and has more than 600 horsepower, is another option for the Polestar to consider. Polestar expects that by releasing the 3 SUVs later than these rivals, it would have an advantage.
2023 Polestar 3 EV Crossover Exterior And Colors
Short views of the Polestar 3’s exterior have been released, and from what we have seen so far, it is rather beautiful. The Polestar 3 boasts appealing wheels, flush-fitting door handles, a rear spoiler that is positioned high, and a beltline that rises towards the C-pillar.
While not quite as expressive as the Polestar 2, the headlights look to have the Thor’s Hammer lighting signature. In the manufacturer-released video, we can see a solid light bar that spans the width of the vehicle and curves down into the taillight clusters in a C-shape. The taillights protrude slightly from the bodywork. The new Polestar 3 SUV has the usual sloping roofline of a contemporary crossover.
The 2023 Polestar 3 won’t be offered in any specific colors just yet, although Polestar tries to steer clear of garish hues. For instance, the 2 sedans is offered in a variety of shades of grey, white, and black, and press photographs of the 3 so far keep to these color schemes as well.
The Polestar 3 will share the SPA2 (Scalable Product Architecture) chassis with Volvo’s future flagship SUV. The Polestar 3 will share its underpinnings with the electric replacement for the Volvo XC90, thus even if its proportions remain unknown, it is anticipated to be a midsize SUV. Its dimensions of length, breadth, and height should be comparable. For comparison, the dimensions of the contemporary XC90 are approximately 195 inches long, 84.3 inches wide, and 69.9 inches tall. Nevertheless, Polestar itself has referred to the 2023 3 SUV as a large luxury EV, so it may be even bigger and heavier than these statistics indicate. Volvo’s XC90 Recharge tops the scales at about 5,100 lbs, while the dual-motor Polestar 2 car weighs 4,650 lbs. We anticipate the Polestar 3 to be much heavier than the latter.
Engine And Performance
Although the Polestar 3 will be propelled by two electric motors, the outputs and 0-60 timings are yet unclear. All-wheel drive is probably standard with two motors. We anticipate the Polestar 3 to be at least as powerful as the dual-motor Polestar 2, which produces over 400 horsepower. With this SUV, Polestar confirmed a focus on performance and elevating sports aspects, so anticipate remarkable specifications. As further information regarding the Polestar 3 becomes available, we’ll update this article to reflect that there may also be a single-motor variant.
Range, Charging, And Battery Life
At this point, details on battery packs and charging timeframes are kept under wraps. But we do have some idea of what to anticipate from range. On the basis of the WLTP cycle, Polestar has said that a target range of 600 km (about 373 miles) is their goal. We must still wait for US-specific MPGe and range figures to be released, but whenever they are, we anticipate the Polestar 3 EV to have a range closer to 300 miles.
