Polestar 5: An electric car that will be as powerful as a supercar

For some time now, electric cars have been pushing the limits of performance, with high-end offerings like the Lucid Air and Tesla Model S Plaid rivaling supercars for acceleration, and Polestar promises to continue this trend with the release of the Polestar 5. Polestar 5 is said to be the production version of the Precept concept, which was first unveiled in 2020.

Polestar 5 debuts at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed. the Precept concept has the look of a luxury sedan, but the production version is expected to emphasize daily driving dynamics over raw speed. However, judging from Polestar’s announcement about the production version of the car, its new model will make a huge impact.

This may not come as a surprise to Polestar enthusiasts, and the announcement didn’t exactly come out of nowhere. The Chinese-European automaker has been documenting the evolution from the Precept to the Polestar 5 on its YouTube channel – for nearly a year. Now, with the announcement of the car’s specifications, there may be a sense that the final piece of the puzzle is in place and everyone can get properly excited.

Polestar’s new electric car is described as a “high-performance electric four-door GT with proper sports car credentials,” and it’s not just talk. Put your foot down and you can step on one that produces a whopping 884 horsepower. A massive 663 lb-ft of torque then helps the horsepower meet the demands of the road and provide impressive traction. The electric car maker says the car’s performance has been enhanced by combining powerful electric motor engineering capabilities with advances in lightweight platform technology.

Polestar executives are excited about the car their company has created, with Pete Allen, Polestar’s UK Head of Research and Development, describing the car as “a superb four-door GT and a true Polestar at its heart.” Jörg Brandscheid, chief technology officer and head of R&D, said the Polestar 5’s powertrain will be a new brand benchmark for its high-performance cars, while company CEO Thomas Ingenlath said the car’s progressive design and advanced engineering set the tone for Polestar’s future.

Unfortunately, there is no information yet on top speed or 100 km acceleration time, but attendees of the Goodwood Festival of Speed will get a glimpse of the Polestar 5’s performance between June 23 and 26.
