Polestar will be pursuing the SUV sector with the 2024 Polestar 3. It’s a very confident move on the electric offshoot of Volvo. But they deserve to make these strong decisions. Such as in the Polestar 1, which was a revolutionary plug-in-hybrid coupe and the Polestar 2 being a lifted liftback which competes with Tesla’s very own Model 3. The Polestar 3 allows the automaker to raise their standards to high-riding territory with a dual-motor setup that pushes about 510 horsepower with around 671-pound-feet of torque.
Such incredible figures are in need of the offerings given by the Performance package, where even the standard dual-motor 3 uses about 483 horsepower with a result of 620 pound-feet. Polestar believes that will allow for enough energy to push the crossover up to 60 miles per hour in only 4.9 seconds. All as the Performance pack cuts another 0.3 seconds from the top time. When noticing the top speed, it comes in at a supposed 130 miles per hour. In addition, the dual-motor setup indicates all-wheel-drive while the Polestar system gives off dual-clutch torque vectoring for better handling on the rear.
Polestar 3 has a sleek design with minimalist payoff.
Notice the two permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors getting hooked to the lithium-ion battery pack, with the 107.0-kilowatt-hours usable capacity battery. Such a power source is a battery that gets built by CATL, while the Chinese firm can additionally give batteries to other companies like BMW, Tesla and Ford. Polestar puts in their crosshairs a target range that would make the EPA super excited: 300 miles. The Performance pack drops the estimate to 270 miles. The one-pedal driving maneuver was created by regenerative braking while the rear motor has been disconnected to utilize battery power. As the temperature keeps dropping, the mechanical heath pump can precondition the battery right before range is maintained. Polestar believes that the 400-volt system could additionally, recharge the battery from 10 to about 80 percent in only 30 minutes.
All while connected to a DC fast charger for up to 250 kilowatts. The 3 itself knows how to drive well with a method of power saving, by using bidirectional charging. Polestar gives off a solid 0.29 drag coefficient. Looking at the Polestar 3, you can tell it operates on 21-inch wheels, with a particular suspension setup that equals out in great adaptive dampers. Braking power arrives through every four-piston Brembo via the up front and single-piston calipers in the rear.
