The design of the Polestar 1 takes much of it's inspiration from the Volvo Concept Coupe, unveiled in 2012. Although they will no longer create new cars with Volvo, the Swedish manufacturer will still underpin Polestar with technology. Polestar will also be used by Volvo as it's "technology spearhead".

Polestar will produce a maximum of 500 Polestar 1 models each year, which will all be left hand drive only. The company have said that this is because of lack of capacity in production of such small numbers. Each Polestar 1 model will be built in Polestar's new factory, which is currently being built in Chengdu, China.

  • not only that but to also have more than 500bhp is awesome as well I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it performs around our track and for that we need our team racing driver....some say he eats old recycled asphalt with his captain crunch cereal and that he's legally married to misspiggy from the Muppets. All we know is he's called the STIG!!!!!
