Despite using the same platform as the 90-series cars, Polestar officials said the new vehicle shares only half of its parts with the Volvo models.

Animated by a mechanical four-cylinder engine borrowed from Volvo, the Polestar 1 also uses two electric motors, which, by themselves, to develop 218 horsepower and allow a range of 150 kilometers. The powertrain will have a range of 150kms on pure electric power alone - the longest full electric range of any hybrid auto on the market.

The 2020 Polestar 1 is a new grand touring coupe from Volvo, providing more than 90 miles of driving range and an electric powertrain supported by an internal combustion engine.

The first production auto will be the Polestar 1, a hybrid 600-horsepower two-door, four-seater hybrid coupe, with just above 90 miles of pure electric range.

In the sale of powerful new Polestar 1 is expected in 2019. As per the company, the new vehicle will also move away from today's traditional ownership model. The zero-deposit, all-inclusive subscription includes a pick-up and delivery service.




To keep costs down, Polestar still uses the parent company's components and the Volvo Scalable Platform Architecture, though the brand says about half of the parts are all-new and were designed by Polestar engineers. This would be followed by Polestar 3, an all-electric SUV-style vehicle.

The order books for the new Polestar 1 open on October, 17, 2017, where the company will take expressions of interest from prospective customers immediately.

Production of the Polestar 1 will take place at a new Chinese production facility in 2018-Chinese automaker Geely owns Volvo Group and its associated brands. Volvo says about half of SPA is unique to the new vehicle, including the new Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension (CESi). It is Polestar's first standalone hybrid "super" coupe after its departure from Volvo. The Polestar 1 will roll off the production line in mid-2019.

You'll order the Polestar 1 online, electing to subscribe to driving the vehicle for two or three years. The debut is imminent - set for October 17 - and Polestar has made a decision to nearly fully complete the initial teaser image that had puzzle-like pieces missing. So far, Polestar says it's aiming to build between 500 to 1000 Polestar One's a year and intends to sell the majority of them from Tesla/Apple-like stores located around major world cities via a subscription system.

Despite not carrying a Volvo badge, the Polestar 1 is clearly an extension of the Swedish brand's principles and design language - both inside and out.
