The Polestar 3 electric SUV will debut on October 12th

Polestar’s first electric SUV will be officially unveiled on October 12, with a target range of 372 miles and an optional Performance Pack, the Swedish company announced. The Polestar 3 will be launched with premium features like air suspension, active dampers and torque vectoring, putting it head-to-head with other EV SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz EQS, Rivian R1S and Tesla Model X. Like these models, it is manufactured in the USA at the Volvo plant in Charleston, South Carolina.

The company, which is jointly owned by Volvo and Chinese parent company Geely, revealed some information about the Polestar 3. This includes a new rear view that shows similar (but upside down) taillights to the Polestar 2. Polestar previously showed off the design from the side in June (below).

The Polestar 3 will feature a rear-biased dual-motor drivetrain similar to that of the Polestar 2, with electric torque vectoring via a dual-clutch system on the rear motor. The ride is controlled as standard by an adaptive dual-chamber air suspension and active dampers, which allow the driver to switch between comfort and firmer suspension dynamics. The dampers adapt to road conditions “every two milliseconds,” Polestar said.

The optional Performance Pack delivers 510 horsepower and 671 pound-feet of torque (compared to the Model X’s 670 horsepower). It also includes Polestar Engineered Chassis tuning for the active dampers and air suspension, as well as interior details like gold seat belts.

Previously, the company said it’s shooting for a range of 372 miles on the European WLTP cycle (so considerably less in EPA terms). It will also feature a semi-autonomous driving system for highway driving, made possible by NVIDIA technology and a lidar sensor – Volvo is likely to use similar technology on its next-gen EX90 SUV, due to launch on November 9. Rumor has it that the Polestar 3 will be priced between $75,000 and $111,000 at launch.
