Scheduled for 2024, Polestar 4 begins testing in China

Spyshot Polestar 4

Polestar has just presented its SUV bearing the number 3. The next model, Polestar 4, will arrive in 2024 and the prototypes are in full testing session in China.

Launched in a somewhat hasty fashion in 2019, the Polestar brand was forced into a break of several years without a new model. The large Polestar 3 crossover launches a more intensive cycle of models designed from the outset to integrate with the Polestar brand. Remember that the Polestar 2 was originally designed to be a Volvo, replacing the V40.

After 1, 2, 3 will therefore arrive the Polestar 4. Which will be smaller than the 3 since the names here have no connection with the place in the range, but only with the launch sequence. Known under the internal code P417, this Polestar 4 will be a D-segment crossover, which should make it competition of choice for the Tesla Model Y, a future Nio ES5 or the next Porsche Macan and Audi Q6 eTron.

The prototypes surprised in China would almost suggest a high sedan, more than an SUV. Polestar seems to have chosen to offer a model between a real high SUV and a sedan. Like 2, but longer since the length is estimated between 4.80 and 4.90 m.

From a technical point of view, it is expected that this vehicle will inaugurate Volvo’s so-called GPA (Global Product Architecture) platform and not Geely’s SEA. A platform dedicated to electric vehicles for the C and D segments. It will be equipped with 800V batteries with fast charging at more than 200 kW, V2L / V2V functions, power up to 400 kW in the dual motor version. With on the Polestar 4 an expected autonomy of more than 600 km in WLTP. Note that this platform will also be used by the next Volvo EX60 and ES60, but also the EX40, EC40 and the second generation of Polestar 2.

The Polestar 4 will be presented at the very end of 2023 for marketing in early 2024. It will be the first Polestar to be produced in Europe. It will be at Volvo’s Torslanda plant in Sweden alongside its Volvo EX60 cousin. But it will also be assembled in China and North America.
