Premium electric performance has found a new form. The exterior design of Polestar 3 is defined by sculpted surfaces, distinctive details, and optimised aerodynamics for a sleeker, more technical look. 

The Polestar 3 stands at an angle with the entire front and side visible.

Exterior design explained

Head of Design Maximilian Missoni talks about the optimised headroom, low roofline, sleek silhouette, and other design details of Polestar 3 that give it its distinct expression, unique in the world of SUVs.


Always a colour that features the features. Polestar 3 is available in a carefully curated choice of exterior colours, each selected to accentuate the car’s design down to the smallest detail.

Optimised airflow

Technical design elements are integrated into the exterior, working together for greater aerodynamic efficiency. The front aero wing attaches the air to the bonnet, allowing a smoother flow and reducing high-pressure build-up. The rear aero wing increases downforce and high-speed stability while also avoiding turbulence. Finally, the rear aero blades deliberately disturb the air to ensure a smooth release from the side of the car. 


The flush side profile creates a completely flat surface that helps keep the airflow attached to the body, reducing turbulent airflow and wind noise. Privacy laminated acoustic rear windows are fitted as standard. Clear glass is available at no extra cost.

Door handles

Fully flush with the doors, the handles increase the aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle by reducing its side profile drag and not interfering with the airflow. The handles extend when the driver approaches while carrying Polestar 3’s ultra-wideband key.


Minimal design, maximum illumination. Emphasising the clean, aerodynamic exterior, the LED headlights combine minimalist aesthetics with intelligent adaptive technology for a signature expression and an optimised view.

1.3 megapixel HD LED

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.

Available as an upgrade.

More about lighting and safety

Rear light bar

Day or night, Polestar 3’s high-intensity rear lights adapt their luminance to the light conditions, increasing visibility, and lowering the risk of collisions from behind.

Frameless design

More reflection. Less obstruction. The glass-to-edge design allows for a 30% smaller mirror housing that optimises the driver’s view and contributes to greater aerodynamic efficiency.

Electrically adjustable, heated and folding

Safety meets convenience. The mirrors are heated to prevent fogging and powered to ensure precise and effortless adjustment. They fold away when the car is locked, reducing the risk of parking damage.

All mirrors automatically dim when facing extra-bright lights. This enhances preventive safety and eye comfort, and reduces the risk of being dazzled.


Polestar 3 comes with a selection of precision-engineered alloy wheels that echo the geometric forms of the car itself. Using diamond cutting, 3-axis machining or our patented 3D laser etching technology, each wheel surface gets its own signature look and high-quality finish. 

Design options

Each wheel design has been carefully matched to the exterior features of Polestar 3. All available wheels meet Polestar’s high standards for safety, durability, handling, and performance.
