Polestar 4: everything you need to know
Polestar 4 has arrived in Europe and Australia. To mark this occasion, our Head of Design, Maximilian Missoni, guides you through his must-know features that make Polestar 4 a new breed of SUV coupé.
As a surprise to no one, Maximilian's favorite Polestar 4 feature is its design. And we couldn't agree more. Our minimalist design language and philosophy of creating beauty in the tiniest of details are easy to see when looking at the car.
1. Dual-blade headlights
The signature dual-blade headlights represent a continuation of key elements first shown on the Polestar Precept, and an illuminated Polestar badge on the nose of the car, which uses millimeter-precision lighting from below, provides a "beautifully, elegantly elevated logo."
2. Frameless side-view mirrors
On top of that, the frameless side-view mirrors offer the same clean design language. For those looking to put their own mark on the car, Maximilian points out that the lower cladding is also customizable to your preference.
3. The eliminated rear window
But the headline-grabber is, of course, the eliminated rear window. Instead, the rearview mirror has been replaced by a high-definition screen that shows a real-time feed from a roof-mounted rear camera – enabling a far wider field of view than can be experienced in most modern cars.
For any parents wondering how they will be able to keep up with what's going on in the back seat, the digital feed can be deactivated, turning the digital rearview mirror back into a regular mirror.
4. Spacious backseats
Speaking of the back seats, Polestar 4 has taken comfort and made it a top priority. Not only is there plenty of space for your legs, but due to the elimination of the rear window, the glass roof stretches beyond the rear occupants' heads, creating a truly unique interior ambiance. This is amplified by the electric reclining rear seats.
5. Lighting inspired by the solar system
The word ambiance plays an important role in Polestar 4 design. As demonstrated by Maximilian, Polestar 4 allows you to select your own cosmic mood. From Venus to Mars, and back to Earth again, you're able to choose the car's ambiance by changing the color of the interior lighting.
Polestar 4 has a new digital rearview mirror: Here's what that means
First seen on American racetracks at the turn of the 20th century, the traditional rearview mirror has been a mainstay in car design for the best part of 100 years. But more than a century after its introduction, little has changed. Until now. The rise of digital rearview mirrors has enabled car designers to upend a century of automotive history. And being the innovative design brand that we are, we’ve pushed the envelope even further. Don’t believe us? See for yourself.
Polestar and Bcomp: The making of our signature interior weave
The car industry is undergoing seismic shifts. Powertrains, autonomous driving, and infotainment systems are completely transforming our understanding of mobility. Not to be outdone, interior designers and fabric manufacturers are making their own innovations – racing to find materials that are sustainable while still retaining an exclusive feel. And in the middle of the Swiss Alps, we think we've found just that.
Advanced robotics and hydro-powered smelters: How we build a Polestar
Historically, factories might not have been something you bragged about. Dirty, old, dark buildings, far away from the essence of a company’s brand. But times change. The next generation of automotive manufacturing sites are intelligent, innovative, and green. As the first wave of Polestar 4s roll out of our state-of-the-art facilities (and with Polestar 3 production just around the corner), we’re opening the doors to some of our current and future sites around the world. So, come with us and see what goes into building a high-performance, exclusive electric vehicle.
