The Polestar 1 was meant to be a halo vehicle to garner attention for a newly established automaker. The powerful hybrid GT did just that, turning heads at auto shows and helping the Volvo stand-alone brand justify jumping deeper into the EV world with the Polestar 2. But now that the vehicle has done its job, it’s entering its final production run.
Polestar announced today that the remaining build slots for the final production run of the vehicle are now available. If you have the desire and means to buy the Polestar 1, now’s your last chance to get your hands on the carbon-fiber-bodied hybrid GT with 619 horsepower.
The Polestar 1’s design is based on a Volvo concept coupe that was on display at the 2013 Frankfurt auto show. The Polestar performance division of Volvo was spun off into its own EV automaker, bringing that concept to life as a performance hybrid.
Priced starting at $156,500, the Polestar 1 was never going to be a mass-market vehicle. Its limited run of 1500 vehicles built over its three-year production life, of which and the automaker is allotting 375 for U.S. customers, makes it one of the more exclusive hybrids out there. It also helps that it looks magnificent.
