The SUV boasts a sleek and aerodynamic profile with a bold front grille, LED headlights, and a sculpted hood. The body lines are clean and uncluttered, giving the vehicle a refined and futuristic look that is sure to turn heads.


Despite its sporty and streamlined appearance, the Polestar 3 is a practical and versatile SUV. It has ample space for five passengers, with generous legroom and headroom in both the front and back seats. The rear seats can be folded down to create additional cargo space when needed.

As for boot space, the Polestar 3 offers a 484-litre boot, which expands to 1,411 litres with rear seats down. This means there is plenty of room for luggage, sports equipment, or bulky items. The boot is also equipped with a handy underfloor storage compartment, which provides additional space for smaller items.

The interior of the Polestar 3 is designed to be both luxurious and minimalist. It features a clean, uncluttered design with high-quality materials and finishes. The cabin has a spacious feel, thanks to the SUV's generous dimensions, and there is plenty of room for passengers in both the front and rear seats.

The seats themselves are designed for comfort and support, with a range of adjustment options to ensure that drivers of all sizes can find a comfortable driving position. The front seats are also heated and ventilated, which should make them comfortable in all weather conditions.

One of the standout features of the Polestar 3's interior is the infotainment system. The SUV is equipped with an Android-powered system that features a large 15-inch touchscreen display. The display is crisp and clear, with high resolution and good contrast, and it is easy to use thanks to its intuitive interface.

However, it is expected that the SUV will be available in a range of different configurations, including various wheel and tire options, different upholstery materials, and a choice of exterior colours.

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, Polestar pairs two liquid-cooled, high-performance electric motors with computer-assisted power distribution to provide optimal traction and control in all circumstances.


The Polestar 3 Long range Dual motor is powered by a twin-motor setup, which provides an estimated output of 483bhp and 620 pound-feet of torque capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in around 4.9 seconds. 

The Long range Dual motor with Performance pack variant is also powered by a twin-motor setup, which provides an estimated output of 510 bhp and 671 pound-feet of torque. This should translate into impressive performance figures, with the SUV capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in around 4.6 seconds.

The powertrain of the Polestar 3 is paired with a powerful 111 kWh battery pack that should provide a range of around 379 miles on a single charge. This is a respectable range for an electric SUV.

Overall, the Polestar 3 is a great new addition to the electric SUV market. It offers impressive performance, a competitive range, and all the practicality and space of an SUV. If you're in the market for a high-performance electric SUV, the Polestar 3 is definitely worth considering.
