When Polestar treated us with its Precept concept last year, the Swedish company proved EV's don't have to be boring. A shark-like nose, sleek body, long panoramic roof and futuristic dashboard were its eye-catchers.

The Precept will eventually become reality in 2024 in the form of the Polestar 5 and it will look a lot like the concept. Maybe a lower nose, wider back and new doors will be implemented in three years time. First, we have to wait for the Polestar 3 and 4 to go on sale before we can expect the 5 to head to the showrooms. Those will both be sporty SUVs, also inspired by the Precept.

No details about the 5's performance have been released yet but speculations are it will have around 500 hp with a 0-60 time of 2.3 seconds. These speculations aren't guesswork but based on Polestar's own claim that the Precept would be a rival for the Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron GT.

Interesting to know is that the 5 will have Volvo's SPA2-platform and it will likely have a range of at least 1.000km. Prices are estimated at around โ‚ฌ75.000.

To this day, the Swedes keep their cards close to their chest, only releasing one picture of the 5. So for the interior, you can use your imagination alongside the pictures of the Precept's interior to have a rough idea of what you can expect in 2024.

  • I find it hilarious that Polestar are so devoted to getting to net zero emissions yet can't see that A) huge cars with huge batteries won't fix that or B) EVs will never get to net zero as a whole.

    • Very true, but as with legacy design and the desire to own such idiocies, EVs must compete with a comparative alternative. Efficiency as well as tackling the many other emissions even electric cars produce, will see an end to this form of...

    • The issue I find with all of this is that I see no way we will cut our emissions viably with EVs in a required amount of time. Obviously with climate change there isn't a huge amount of time that we have to fix it, but it seems as though EVs would need...

  • A lot of engineering time and $ being spent in the rarefied space of the Tesla Model S, taycan, Lucid Air, others. Where's the electric $30K car that can go 250 miles, that would actually make a difference to carbon emissions? Are we leaving that to the Chinese to tackle? Seems so

    • ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Well said. Not many people can afford these cars and they are much worse environmentally than a small car because they need more materials.

  • I like the looks of it. I like that itโ€™s not a bloody crossover. If they are able to achieve their target figures it might be a better value than the Audi or the Porsche. Good luck to them.
