Performance software upgrade

Maximum power and acceleration at all times. The performance software upgrade boosts the powertrain output to 380 kW (517 hp), while also adjusting the true torque vectoring management for constant all-wheel drive and optimal responsiveness.

Polestar 3

Polestar Engineered chassis tuning 

Refined performance for spirited driving, balanced control for longer journeys, and everything in between. Polestar Engineered chassis tuning provides precisely crafted control in all of Polestar 3’s suspension settings. Spring stiffness levels, internal valve semi- active dampers and torque vectoring work in harmony with the Pirelli P Zero tyres to deliver enhanced responsiveness and driver engagement.

Wheels

22″ 4-Multi spoke black polished forged wheel

Using a manufacturing process originally developed for racing wheels, the 22″ 4-Multi spoke black polished forged wheel are lighter and stronger than more conventional cast alloy wheels. Their low unsprung weight allows them to move up and down faster, improving handling and maximising road contact.

Swedish gold accents

Seatbelts, and the valve caps add a subtle performance signature in the colour Swedish gold.

Aluminium deco

Because 80% of the raw material is sourced from post-consumer waste, this futuristic interior deco gives used aluminium a new lease of life.

Interior upgrades

IR and laminated acoustic windscreen

Cool in warm climates and warm in cold climates, the infrared windscreen is an essential addition to Polestar 3. It not only helps to optimise cabin temperature, but also reduces road noise for even quieter electric journeys.

Car wheel

21” 5-V Spoke Black Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels

A perfect match for Polestar 3’s minimalist exterior, these 21” signature alloy wheels are manufactured using low pressure casting, making the metal exceptionally dense and strong. The simple, elegant design is accentuated by the diamond cut wheel surfaces and clear coat finish.

Comfort upgrades

Heated rear seats, steering wheel and wiper blades

Tested and developed in the arctic circle for comfort in the harshest of winter weather, the heated steering wheel and rear seats make the Polestar 3 interior an even more welcoming environment. The heated wiper blades prevent washer fluid from freezing in cold temperatures, making them an important safety feature.

Comfort upgrades

Air particle filter

Polestar takes air quality seriously, both outside and inside the car. The dedicated on-board air particle filter helps to reduce the number of undesirable particles in the cabin air, such as pollutants and pollen.

Steering wheel

Comfort upgrades

Power operated steering column

Position the steering wheel with precision. Power-operated controls allow the driver to accurately adjust the steering column to achieve exactly the right height and reach. The position is stored with the driver’s other preferred settings like seating and side mirrors.

Outside the car, a door is being shut rapidly - which slows down to close gently.

Comfort upgrades

Soft-close doors

The soft-closing system senses when a door is being closed and quietly pulls it shut.

Groceries are being held in place in the boot with the grocery bag holder.

Comfort upgrades

Grocery bag holder

Prevent loose items from moving around in the boot. The cargo floor can fold up to create a foldable holder that supports grocery bags, either standing or hanging from hooks. 

Pilot pack

The Pilot pack further enhances Polestar 3’s safety features. Upgrades include Pilot Assist and a head-up display.

Included with the Polestar 3 Launch edition.

Pilot Assist

Pilot Assist delivers a more relaxed driving experience on motorways and major roads. Once the driver has selected the desired speed and a time interval to the vehicle ahead, Pilot Assist monitors the distance to the vehicle ahead, the lane markings, and makes automatic speed and steering adjustments to maintain the preferred position. 

Park Assist Pilot

Park Assist Pilot allows Polestar 3 to detect suitable parking spaces at speeds up to 30 km/h and guide itself into the one selected on the centre display. The system can handle parallel, perpendicular, or diagonal parking, as long as the driver is present.

Lane change assist

When Pilot Assist is active, Polestar 3 can also change lanes automatically. Moving the indicator stalk fully up or down initiates the manoeuvre, and the car will only proceed if the system’s sensors indicate it’s safe.

Polestar 3

Head-up display

Essential driving information like speed, warnings, and turn-by-turn navigation is projected in the driver’s field of view, using a special coating on the windscreen. Advanced projection technology ensures excellent visibility regardless of exterior lighting conditions.

Pilot pack with LiDAR

The advanced LiDAR system from Luminar is designed to continuously scan the environment in front of the vehicle to create a three-dimensional understanding of Polestar 3’s surroundings. The system can see what the driver sometimes can’t, even in low light conditions.

Estimated delivery time, vehicle price and features are subject to change.

LiDAR from Luminar

The integrated LiDAR system uses advanced laser technology to target and identify objects more precisely than ever before, even in low light conditions, and especially in the long-range field, thanks to its 1550 nm wavelength. The LiDAR system enhances convenience and driver assistance functions.

Additional cameras

As well as the LiDAR unit, the system includes two 8-megapixel rear view cameras, one integrated in each door mirror, to complement the standard surround view cameras, and improve the car’s rear vision. There’s also one additional 8-megapixel long-range camera that increases the car’s long-range vision.

Camera cleaning 

To ensure optimal system performance, the front view camera in the SmartZone gains an automatic cleaning function. This is also included with the two additional rear view cameras integrated in the door mirrors. 

Nvidia core computer

Additional NVIDIA core computer

The additional NVIDIA DRIVE Orin™ core computer delivers 254 TOPS (trillions of operations per second) to fully support the LiDAR and camera system’s sensors and features. Its extra computing power works together with the vehicle computation unit to optimise assisted driving capabilities. 

Nappa upgrades

This set of premium interior upgrades includes perforated Nappa leather upholstery, ventilated front seats with massage function, and black ash deco.

Animal welfare traced Nappa leather

Produced according to strict animal welfare standards by Bridge of Weir in Scotland, the perforated, animal welfare traced Nappa leather upholstery is also chrome-free and fully traceable. Available in Zinc, with a matching interior zinc band, or Jupiter.  

Wood dashboard material detail

Black ash deco

Inspired by techniques from furniture design, black ash deco achieves its unique look by using the physical structure in the wood instead of the optical shifts in colour more often used in cars. This more sustainable approach reduces scrap by making better use of the available veneer.

Driver seat in leather

Ventilated front seats with massage function

The front seat ventilation system uses fans inside the seat base and backrest to push air through the upholstery, enhancing comfort in warm weather. Both front seats also include a massage function to make longer journeys more comfortable and relaxing.

22″ 4-V Spoke black polished forged wheel

These optional 22” forged alloys are shaped by pressing the metal rather than melting it, resulting in lighter and stronger wheels that improve handling and road contact. Their design features are accentuated by a Polestar patented laser etching technique that combines a high-quality finish with a highly efficient use of energy.

HD LED headlights

Using cameras to identify other road users and traffic objects, the megapixel HD LED headlights constantly adapt their light spread to the car’s surroundings. The 1.3 million pixels in each lamp unit reduce glare by shading out oncoming and preceding vehicles as well as bright road signs, focusing the beam on where it’s needed.

Automatic towbar

Polestar 3 produces enough torque to tow up to 2,200 kg. The fully electric towbar is easy to fold in or out, using the button on the right inner panel of the boot. It’s equipped with the "FIX4BIKE®" system and a Trailer Stability Assist function that helps to stabilise the car if a connected trailer starts to sway. 

Over-the-air updates

We’re constantly tweaking the software of Polestar 3 to make sure it gets the latest updates to improve range, safety, performance and in-car applications. Expect continuous upgrades to the car throughout its lifetime.
