Polestar 5 electric 4-door GT to debut 884hp powertrain, Autos Polestar

GOTHENBURG: Polestar is showing a development prototype of the Polestar 5 in public for the first time at the June 23-26 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The new model is a high-performance electric 4-door GT with proper sports car credentials, and the production evolution of the Precept concept car first shown in 2020.

The UK team has taken the opportunity of working with a new mechanical platform to design and develop a unique bonded aluminium chassis, a prime factor in delivering the vehicle dynamics signature.

In Sweden, development of a new top-of-the-line electric powertrain is ongoing. A new rear electric motor will provide superior output, along with 800-Volt architecture. Combined with a high-output front electric motor, the complete dual motor powertrain aims to deliver 650 kW (884hp) and 900Nm.

“The new powertrain we are working on will set a new brand benchmark in our high-performing cars,” said Polestar’s CTO and Head of R&D Jörg Brandscheid.

“Combining strong electric motor engineering ability with advances in light-weight platform technology is leading to truly stunning driver’s cars.”

Polestar 5 will run up the iconic Goodwood hill twice daily during the event in the “First Glance” group.

The car is planned for launch in 2024 and is the third of three new EVs expected to be launched by Polestar in the coming three years, following the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 electric SUVs.

Polestar’s YouTube documentary series shows how the company is transforming the Precept concept into the production Polestar 5 in a lot more detail than is usually revealed during a car project.

“Polestar 5 is a company-defining project. Its progressive design and advanced engineering set the tone for Polestar’s future. We have great talent on board enabling us to create truly iconic EVs,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
