Polestar is Volvo’s court tuning studio, sort of like Mercedes’ AMG or BMW’s M Perfomance, but it’s now a separate company developing its own cars, albeit with Volvo technology.

In October 2017, it was announced that the first model of the newly formed company will be the Polestar 1 2020 hybrid sports coupe, which was to be launched in serial production in September 2019.

Volvo’s parent company, the Chinese manufacturer Geely, has invested 640 million euros in the Polestar brand. Moreover, in the summer, 50 Polestar 1 2020 models of the model year, which received the status of pre-production samples, rolled off the assembly line of the Chinese plant in Chengdu.

They should have been at the disposal of some buyers, so that they could help with their recommendations and feedback in the final adjustment of production models, as well as decide on a list of options they needed.

The page contains all the details about the new model from Volvo, Polestar 1 2020 model year, possible configurations and prices in Russia, release date, photos, technical and dynamic characteristics and a video test drive of the sports coupe.

The full name of the model is Polestar 1 Electric Performance Hybrid, and it is based on the modular SPA platform familiar to us from the Volvo XC60, S90, V90 and XC90.

The two-door wheelbase is 2621 mm and the body length reaches 4.5 meters. A special feature of the coupe’s design is completely carbon-fiber body elements, and the manufacturer plans to keep the same approach with the release of the following models: the Polestar 2 electric sedan and the Polestar 3 crossover.

We could get acquainted with the exterior of the Polestar 1 2020 from Volvo back in 2013, when the Concept Coupe was shown.

The exterior of the hybrid coupe retains a sporty look and a stylistic concept that confirms the model’s belonging to Volvo.

The characteristic hexagonal shape of the radiator grille, narrow headlights with LED modules like «Thor’s hammer», X-shaped front bumper — to this is added a «humped» hood, hinting at the enormous power of the power plant.

At the rear, the car stands out with a simple chopped stern with C-shaped headlamps and sporty twin tailpipes.


The interior is almost entirely borrowed from the new Volvo models.

Even the first teasers of the Polestar 1 coupe made it clear that the interior of the novelty would be borrowed from Volvo.

More precisely, it was simply taken from the business-class sedan and slightly retouched, adding a little chrome and wood decor. In the center of the front panel is a 9.5-inch touchscreen display of the multimedia system, on the sides of which there are huge vertical air vents.

A multi-wheel with physical buttons, a digital «tidy» and a small chrome-plated joystick for transmission control — everything is familiar and is quite in place, although for a modern hybrid it looks a little old-fashioned.

Technical stuffing

Polestar 1 2020 model year clearly sets the task of immediately knocking out potential competitors, setting more than a decent bar for the power of its hybrid plant. 600 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque — this is exactly how much four motors produce at the same time:
