Polestar 4 orders open, priced for Australia

First deliveries of Polestar 4 slated for August, electric coupe-SUV priced from $81,500

31 Jan 2024

POLESTAR has this week announced details and indicative pricing for its Polestar 4 coupe-SUV, the all-electric model due in local showrooms from August with an estimated sticker price from $81,500 plus on-road costs.

 

Positioned between the Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 in terms of size and price, the Polestar 4 continues many of the design cues of the Polestar Precept concept car, including the elimination of the rear window to create a “new kind of immersive rear occupant experience”.

 

Further concept cues include the separation of the dual blade headlights with Polestar’s unique lighting signature and Polestar emblem, low frontal mask, retractable door handles, flush DLO with frameless door glass, rear aero blades and rear light bar.

 

The Polestar 4 is built on the Geely-developed Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) platform and measures 4840mm in length, 2139mm in width, and 1534mm in height while riding on a 2139mm wheelbase.

 

Polestar says the dimensions offer the Polestar 4 “generous interior proportions” that are “especially evident in the rear”. The rear seats are electrically reclinable and are complemented by adjustable ambient lighting that is said to be inspired by the solar system.

 

Overhead, a full-size glass roof creates a “truly unique experience”, one that is enhanced in the second row by a media and climate control screen mounted between the front seats.

 

Polestar design head Maximilian Missoni said the Polestar 4’s interior and its materials have been designed around the theme of ‘soft tech’, drawing inspiration from fashion and sportswear industries.

 

“With Polestar Precept we previewed a stunning new occupant experience by removing the rear window and pushing the rear header, which plays an integral safety role, further back,” he detailed.

 

“This means that now, rear occupants can have a unique experience in our SUV coupe.”

 

Further forward we find the rear-view mirror replaced by a high-definition screen that shows a real-time view of following traffic. The dashboard further features an Android-powered infotainment system (with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity) and the latest Snapdragon processing power, all accessed via a 15.4-inch landscape-oriented touchscreen.

 

With Google built-in, including Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play, the Polestar 4 is nothing if not connected, the system topped with an optional Harman Kardon audio system with 12 speakers and 1400-watt channel-hybrid amplifier. An additional two headrest speakers are added to each front seat with the optional Nappa Pack– raising the total to 16.

 

As with other Polestar cars, regular over-the-air (OTA) updates allow for new features and improvements to be sent remotely to all vehicles, removing the need to visit a workshop to gain the latest software.

 

The Polestar 4 is the fastest production car to yet be available from Polestar, with a claimed 0-100km/h time of 3.8 seconds listed. Maximum power is rated at 400kW with drive coming from permanent magnet, synchronous design motors.

 

Single- and dual-motor configurations are available, the former delivering 200kW and 343Nm to the rear wheels with a preliminary range target of up to 610km (WLTP). The dual motor variant offering promising 400kW and 686Nm via all-wheel drive and a range target of 580km (WLTP).

 

Power is supplied by a 100kWh battery pack in both instances with up to 22kW of AC charging and 200kW of DC charging available. Bi-directional charging hardware is included, with vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality planned to be made available later.

 

A heat pump is fitted as standard, allowing the car to capitalise on ambient heat when preconditioning the cabin and battery.

 

Further, Polestar says the dual-motor ‘4’ features a disconnect clutch that allows the car to disengage the front electric motor when not needed, to maximise range and efficiency, while a new drive optimisation function allows the driver to select between Range or Performance driving modes.

 

Despite the high output and performance, Polestar claims “control and confidence are always key factors” in offering an enjoyable daily drive experience and has equipped the dual-motor version with semi-active suspension “for an additional layer of adjustment between comfort and performance dynamics”.

 

Alloy wheel sizes range from 20- to 22-inches in diameter with tyres supplied by Pirelli and Michelin, depending on configuration. Driving dynamics are said to be “true to the Polestar brand (with) sharp steering and handling responses”.

 

The Polestar 4 will arrive with a long list of standard safety inclusions. Highlights see the model fitted with seven airbags, Polestar’s new SuperVision ADAS technology suite, a 10.2-inch instrument panel, 14.7-inch head-up display with snow mode, and an optional Pilot Pack with auto lane change assist.

 

Elsewhere, the Polestar 4 promises a high level of standard equipment with addition packages tailored to specific needs.

 

The Plus Pack (+$8000) comprises comfort and technology upgrades, with the Pro Pack (+$2500) adding 21-inch wheels and subtle design details.

 

The Nappa upgrade can be specified in addition to the Plus Pack and includes animal welfare-secured Nappa leather upholstery with ventilation and massage, additional headrest speakers for the front seats and rear comfort headrests.

 

The Pilot Pack includes Pilot Assist and its extended features and is include as standard in Australia.

 

The Performance Pack (+$7200) increases the performance look and driving experience of the dual motor version, with 22-inch wheels, four-piston Brembo brakes, Polestar Engineered performance chassis tuning and Swedish gold details for the brakes, seat belts and valve caps.

 

“The introduction of Polestar 4 into all our markets through the course of 2024 is key to our success, adding this third model to our line-up,” said Polestar chief executive officer Thomas Ingenlath.

 

“Polestar 4 tackles the premium performance class in the D-SUV segment (as an) innovative interpretation of an SUV coupe (it) offers great interior space and a stunning appearance.”

 

Further details of the Polestar 4 will be announced closer to the model’s Australian launch.
