The Polestar 3 debuts Oct 3, the similar day orders open up for the battery-electrical SUV consistently pitched towards the Porsche Cayenne. The comparisons were being appropriate, dependent on reviews from Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath at the Automotive News Europe Congress. He explained his brand’s initially SUV will begin at 75,000 euros and best out around 110,000 euros. Mainly because the euro and U.S. greenback are nearly even, prices will most likely be equivalent in dollars, meaning a range of about $75,650 to $110,950. The 2022 Porsche Cayenne begins at $73,650, the Cayenne GTS — six trims beneath the flagship Turbo GT — commences at $114,550.
This indicates that, as with the Cayenne, the 3 is very likely to be dimensionally and fiscally concerning the Tesla Design Y and Design X. The Product Y Effectiveness is seven inches shorter than a Cayenne and starts at $69,990, the Model X in dual-motor AWD trim is five inches for a longer period than a Cayenne and begins at $120,990.
We do not have specs on the 3 nonetheless, but we do know it will pack a two-motor powertrain. In the $53,300 Polestar 2 liftback sedan with twin motors, output will come to 408 horsepower and 487 pound-ft of torque regular, hitting 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds. People figures can be upgraded to 476 hp and 502 lb-ft for consumers who find the General performance Pack, the 60-mph sprint coming down to 4.2 seconds. The Cayennes in the exact same price tag bracket max out at 455 hp and 516 lb-ft of mixed output on the Cayenne E-Hybrid, the Porsche needing 4.7 seconds to achieve 60 mph when geared up with the Sport Chrono Deal. All of which is to say the template has by now been recognized for hard a Porsche, so we would not be surprised if the 3 is even far more strong. If Polestar hits its array estimate of 372 miles on the WLTP cycle, our variation could do greater than 300 miles on the EPA testing regimen.
The 3 goes into manufacturing later on this yr together with the coming battery-electric powered Volvo XC90 alternative, thought to be called the Embla. Polestar will double its assault on the Germans up coming yr with the Porsche Macan-rivaling Polestar 4.
