The Polestar 1 is a plug-in hybrid sports car designed and built by Polestar, a performance company and brand of Volvo Cars. This is Polestar’s first product as an independent car manufacturer. A beautiful car that fits the bill as both a classic GT and powerful at the same time, this car is one of the most handsome cars on the road. This is a two-door grand tourer coupé that was launched in 2017.
The 2-door coupé is available in transverse all-wheel drive with the rear electric motor and 8-speed automatic transmission layout. It is an electric hybrid sports car with a powerful engine which is enough to compete against the likes of BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. A 2.0L in-line four twin-charged petrol engine powers the Polestar 1. From 0-60 mph, it sprints in just 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.
In addition to the amazing looks of the 2021 Polestar 1, the elegant two-seater coupe is also both expensive and exclusive. Volvo’s products, on which this car draws inspiration, have generally been extraordinarily reliable. According to Car and Driver, the Polestar 1 has a reliability rating of 7.5 out of 10.
It is highly unlikely that safety or crash testing will ever be conducted on the Polestar 1 due to its extremely high price and limited production run. However, there’s a short video of a crash test released by Polestar 1 to demonstrate the safety and strength and it looks pretty impressive.
The Polestar is one of the most expensive cars. Although the Polestar is a compelling package: it looks to die for, has a 78-mile electric range, and over 600 horsepower. Therefore, it is impressive that it retains a whopping 64.33% of its purchase price even after having driven 36,000 miles for three years.
