Now that Polestar is finally separated from Volvo, it’s almost time to see what the performance division has planned. Last month Volvo and Polestar officially separated, with Volvo spinning off the division to create high-performance electric cars. Polestar has now confirmed that it will debut a new model on October 17.
Polestar has released these few teasers on Instagram, but it’s not known what exactly the car is. Could it be a high-performance coupe? It’s rumored that Polestar’s first model will be a two-door coupe based on the Volvo Concept Coupe. If it is in fact a coupe, it will satisfy fans of the original concept and further move the brand away from Volvo.
Polestar’s first model could use a plug-in hybrid powertrain, which according to some rumors, it could have close to 600 horsepower.
