Foreign media have now captured the road test spy photos of the Polestar 4 medium-sized coupe SUV. Foreign media expect the new car to be officially released before the end of this year.
Sadly though, the road test car is covered in camouflage stickers, and we can only tell that it’s a crossover coupe, presumably shorter than the Polestar 3, and with less interior space.
Polestar boss Thomas Inglenlath has previously said the Polestar 4 is positioned as an SUV sibling to the Polestar 2, but it will offer comparable utility to the larger Polestar 3. “The car is slightly smaller [than the 3], but we don’t compromise too much length on the interior. It’s a little bit more grounded, and the roofline is more coupe-like.”
At the time, he also revealed that it might launch at a suggested price of around $55,000 (currently about 375,000 CNY), but the latest forecasts suggest the new car should cost between £49,000 (currently about 403,000 CNY) and 66,000 pounds (currently about 375,000 CNY). 543,000 CNY), positioned just between the Polestar 2 sedan and the Polestar 3 SUV.
According to the official introduction, the car will be mass-produced at Geely’s Hangzhou Bay factory. It is based on the PMA1 platform similar to Zeekr 001. There should be two versions of rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. Polestar says the Polestar 4 will eventually offer a range of more than 600 kilometers.
For reference, attached are some parameters of Zeekr 001. The car is equipped with a high-performance permanent magnet twin electric drive system. The dual-motor version has a maximum speed of 200km/h, and the ultra-long battery life version NEDC has a battery life of up to 712km.
The wheelbase of the car is over 3 meters, and the weight distribution is 50:50. The high-end version is also equipped with air suspension + CCD electromagnetic shock absorption, and the ground clearance can be adjusted from 117mm to 200mm. This car supports fast charging technology, and it can travel 120km in 5 minutes.
The long battery life dual motor version has a comprehensive battery life of 526km. The ultra-long battery life dual motor version is also equipped with Yamaha advanced audio, smart sensor automatic doors and other configurations. The current manufacturer’s guide price is between 300,000 and 403,000 CNY.
