This is the Polestar 4. It’s the fastest Polestar to date, comes with more tech than ever before and has the lowest carbon footprint of any Polestar car ever made.
But when this car was first unveiled last year, it wasn’t the stuff it comes with that grabbed all the headlines. Oh no. What broke the internet was the one thing it comes WITHOUT.
That’s right – this car has no rear windscreen.
Polestar describes the 4 as a ‘D-segment SUV Coupe’ but I think the SUV tag is a bit misleading. Does this look like an SUV to you? It doesn’t to me. This car is only 50mm taller than an Audi A6, for example. So if you’re fed up of endless SUVs, this could be the car for you.
Under the floor is a 100kWh battery with 94kWh claimed to be usable. There are two versions from launch – single motor with rear-wheel drive and dual motor with all-wheel drive. The single motor has 268bhp while the dual motor version has a walloping 536bhp. That’s enough for a 0-62mph time of 3.8 seconds, which makes it the fastest Polestar built to date.
Polestar has yet to finalise WLTP figures, but what we do know is that the single motor version has a provisional range figure of 379 miles while the dual motor model is expected to offer 360 miles. Given that the Polestar 4 tips the scales at a rather porky 2.3 tonnes, those are pretty encouraging figures.
The Polestar 4 sticks with the same 400 volt electrical system that all other Polestar models do, but that hasn’t stopped the engineers being able to give it some seriously fast rapid charging capability.
You’ll get up to 200kW on a rapid charger, which is only a little less than 800 volt cars like the Hyundai IONIQ twins and the Kia EV6 and 9 can deliver. You’ll also get up to 22kW on AC as standard.
Bi-directional charging is built-in from launch, but if you want vehicle to load, Polestar says that this will be made functional from a later date.
