Volvo polestar plan with beginner electro-SUV

Volvo polestar plan with beginner electro-SUV-beginner

On the way to the purely electric brand Volvo has a few steps to go. Polestar has definitely the better starting position. And yet both brands make their best to bring relevant E models to the market. Among other things, both by Volvo, as well as polestar, a beginner electro-SUV is planned, which can accommodate with the Mercedes-Benz EQA and EM DS 3 Crossback E-Tense.

The brands are working on a premium-oriented compact crossover. The model will play a key role in the striving for the brand, especially for Volvo, to concentrate by 2025 50% of their worldwide sales on electric vehicles. Currently rumors become loud that he will find his way to the road as Volvo XC20 Recharge. The supposed XC20 should follow on the XC90, which should also expect another electrification stage.

It could be the first model that builds on the new SEA platform of GEELY. The premium brand Zeekr of Geely brings 2022 a shooting brake on this platform on the road, which is optionally offered with an 86 kWh or 100 kWh battery. A similar equipment you can then expect the “small” Volvo or Polestar. As a question, however, is whether the maximum charging speed of 360 kW will also hold its entry. Likewise, the 536 hp two-motorcyary powertrain of the ZEEKR streamer for the entry-level current appears oversized.

Polestar, in turn, is currently working on the market launch of the Polestar 3, also a SUV. However, a larger SUV. The Elektro-SUV drives at the plant in Charleston, South Carolina in the US from the band. No less than one of the “climatic cars of all time” should become the stromer as we could learn. 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.

Whether the Polestar 2.5 – because the E-SUV should be placed between Polestar 2 and 3 – to convince white, must show itself. From the size he will lie between the 2 and the 3 and similarly racy proportions like the flagship, but more likely to be intended for the mass market. He is supposed to be a little lower than the polestar 3 and even a more arched roof line, but Polestar boss Thomas Ingenlath said that he will go to the interior “No big compromises”.

From Polestar 2.5, however, the logic of the rising model numbers will follow, the Polestar 4. Also fits the information that there is meanwhile. This second SUV follows the Polestar 3, which already comes in the coming year as a twin of the electric Volvo XC90 successor, with independent polestar design on the street. Ingenlath stated that the price difference between the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 will be the crucial distinguishing feature.

  1. No less than one of the “climatic cars of all time” should become the stromer

    A SUV? That would mean the quadrature of the circle. Probably it is not related to the consumption and amount of resources used for production. Instead, Greenwashing is powered – Z.B. The latex for the tires comes to 100% used condoms.

  2. I am looking in principle such a BEV. If there is something in the size of the EQA – certainly not wider – for the CHF 40’000, I will buy it. Dear but not from China.
