volvo-owned polestar will build this 884-horsepower ev roadster

Volvo-owned Polestar has confirmed plans to put an electric roadster into production. While the production car is expected to launch in 2026 as the Polestar 6, customers can put in an order starting today.

Revealed in Los Angeles in March as the Polestar O₂, the electric roadster concept builds on the design, technology, and sustainability ambitions laid out by the Polestar Precept and showcases the brand’s vision for future sports cars.

The hard-top convertible will be built on Polestar’s bespoke bonded aluminum platform. Developed in-house, it will feature the high-performance, 800-volt electric architecture already confirmed for Polestar 5. This includes output of up to 650 kW (884 horsepower) and 900 Nm from a dual motor powertrain, a targeted 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.

To celebrate the launch, 500 numbered units of a special ‘LA Concept’ version, the ‘Polestar 6 LA Concept edition’, are planned to be produced. They will exclusively feature the unique ‘Sky’ blue exterior, light leather interior and unique 21-inch wheels of the original Polestar O₂ concept.
