The facts and figures speak for themselves. 609 hp. 1000 Nm of torque. 8-speed automatic gearbox. Polestar 1 delivers an effortlessly engaging ride.
The combined maximum power from the petrol engine, the electric motors and the Integrated Starter Generator is 600 hp/441 kW. Maximum torque is an impressive 1,000 Nm. This gets you from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. Pure, progressive performance.
The combustion engine in the Polestar 1 is a high-performance petrol in-line four-cylinder engine. At low engine speeds, a supercharger compresses and forces air into the cylinders. This minimises turbo lag until the engine reaches 3,500 rpm, when the turbocharger takes over.
Steep inclines. Hairpin turns. Extreme off-road conditions. The Hällered Proving Ground test track has it all. Perfect for testing Polestar 1’s grip and steering responsiveness and calibrating the software that controls the torque vectoring.
Joakim Rydholm, Chief Test Engineer
Many cars promise torque vectoring, but few genuinely deliver. No brakes. No mechanical limited slip differential. Polestar 1’s twin electric motors on the rear axle adapt the power to each rear wheel. Get agile, reactive steering, and excellent grip and stability around corners.
