Less need for servicing

The powertrain of a petrol or diesel car typically contains over 2000 moving parts, whereas the electric powertrain of Polestar 3 has around 50. Consequently, there’s less need for servicing as, essentially, tyres, wiper blades and the cabin air filter are the only parts that require regular attention.

More on maintenance


Polestar cars are built to the same exacting standards to which they are designed. The result is unparalleled build quality and a warranty that covers the unexpected and the unforeseen.
