The Swedish Premium Electro Automarke Polestar will produce your first fully electric SUV in the USA. The Polestar 3, an aerodynamically drawn electric SUV, will be prepared along with new Volvo vehicles in the production center of Volvo Cars in Ridgeville, South Carolina, as the company. The polestar vehicles from South Carolina are intended for the US market.

With this step, Polestar wants to set up as a brand more global: In addition to the headquarters in Sweden and the established sales and sales organizations in Europe, Polestar with China and the USA has production capacities in the two world’s largest single markets for electric vehicles.

“The Polestar 3 is built in America for our American customers. I remember the great resonance when I was here in the US for the first time Polestar’s Vision, and I am proud that our first SUV is manufactured in South Carolina. From now on, the US is not an export market anymore but a home market.”- Thomas Ingenlath, CEO Polestar

The announcement of production in the US also underlines the commitment of Polestar for the American market, which is in a phase of rapid expansion. Polestar wants to open around 25 Polestar Spaces throughout the country this year. Spaces in the US offer customers amenities such as tourists from home, a free pick-up and delivery service and mobile services for consumers in regions, which are still waiting for the opening of a Polestar Space.

Polestar was founded in 2017 by Volvo Cars and Chinese Geely Holding. The plant in Ridgeville was opened in 2018 by Volvo Cars. The fact that Polestar shares a production facility with Volvo Cars underlines the significant industrial and financial synergies resulting from the ownership structure. “Production in the US reduces both delivery times and the environmental impact associated with the transport of vehicles around the world. She will even have a positive impact on the price of the Polestar 3, “says Dennis Nobelius, COO at Polestar. All this makes the brand more competitive on the important American sales market.

The Polestar 3 is intended to represent the debut of a new generation of the Volvo Car Group’s electric car architecture, which was developed from scratch for complete electrification. The aerodynamic electrical performance SUV is to have industry-leading connectivity functions based on Google’s native infotainment system Android Automotive OS. These are supplemented by security-oriented autonomous driving functions. The production of Polestar 3 is expected to start worldwide in 2022. Complete product details wants to announce the manufacturer at a later date.

The message on the expansion of the production capacities of Polestar follows the recent announcement that the company has received $ 550 million (good 450 million euros) from a group of long-term external investors in April. The company has confirmed that there will be possible further capital increases.
