According to Polestar’s American unit head Gregor Hembrough. The system has an output of 475 kW and will only be used exclusively by Polestar.
The electric system, dubbed the P10, will be paired with a two-speed gearbox in order to choose between acceleration and maximum efficiency.
The P10 has compact dimensions at 36 x 50 x 64 centimeters and will enter production in 2024. With an all-wheel drive system featuring these two drive units, it’s unlikely that the system’s power can simply be doubled; the maximum power output of the battery is likely the limiting factor here.
The 800 volt system is said to have 103 kWh of energy and will also be installed in the Polestar 5. The architecture is also said to offer “simplified compatibility” with 400 volt charging systems.
Polestar is targeting a target range of 600+ kilometers for the Polestar 5 and wants to put the vehicle at the level of the Porsche Panamera in terms of price.
The Polestar 3, on the other hand, is said to be based on the SPA2 platform, much like the electric successor to the Volvo XC90, which could reportedly be called the Embla.
