Polestar O2 roadster unveils alongside 5 at Goodwood, has high-performance supercar levels

The 4-door Polestar 5 had some company when it was unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Alongside the Polestar 5, the company also put to the roads for the first time its new upcoming model the O2 electric roadster.

Polestar O2 Roadster: aerodynamic looks

The O2 roadster has a splendid aerodynamic cast that sits on 22-inch wheels. The aerodynamic design has been created to improve airflow and minimize turbulence behind the car during drives. The company claims that the car would have capabilities no lesser than a supercar thanks to the platform it uses. A fixed retracting roof keeps the car stouter than Polestar 5 and also the wheelbase is smaller by 400nm. This has been made possible by giving away the ‘foot garage’ from the platform, to create some more leg room at the rear.

Polestar O2 Roadster goes green

Polestar has kept sustainability in mind while designing and choosing the materials for the car. A new thermoplastic mono-material is used at the base of the car for various components. Polestar has tried to use as much recycled materials in the car as has been possible. This includes the aluminum shells as well as the use of recycled polyester for the soft interior materials.

Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said, “The propulsion of an electric drivetrain is great for a sports car. And then to do it when an open roof concept, when everybody dreams about ‘the fresh air, the breeze, being closer to nature’ – it’s a perfect fit to have that with an electric drivetrain, and not only have fresh air when you arrive at it, but you’ll leave it for the people behind you”.

Polestar O2 Roadster: Release date

The appearance of O2 at the Goodwood festival was the first time that the car was seen in the open by the public. However, the car would be a reality on the roads only after 2025, as confirmed by Ingenlath. Currently, Polestar seems to be focussing only on Polestar 3 SUV. Polestar 4 would soon follow it in early 2023 and the 4-door Polestar 5, has been planned for 2024.
