The Polestar 6 has been confirmed as the brand’s sixth model. Essentially the production version of the O2 Concept, the all-electric convertible builds on the Polestar 5 and will serve as the new halo. Polestar confirmed that the Polestar 6 will use the same aluminum-intensive architecture as its sedan sibling. That should keep weight down, countering the weight of the batteries. It also shares its powertrain and 800-volt charging architecture with the Polestar 5. In dual-motor configuration, Polestar says the 6 makes up to 884 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque. This also allows the roadster to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed on 155 mph.
Like the O2 Concept, the production 6 features a retractable hardtop. However, don’t expect the built-in drone to make it to production. The first 500 units made take inspiration from the show car. Dubbed the LA Concept Edition, they sport a Sky Blue exterior, light-colored leather interior, and unique 21-inch alloy wheels featuring the same design as the O2 Concept. Reservations for a build slot when the car goes into production in 2026 open on August 16. Polestar will display the concept at the 2022 Monterey Car Week, which takes place between August 18 to 21.
The Polestar 6 makes the fourth new vehicle joining the Swedish brand’s lineup. Later this year, it will introduce its first SUV, the midsize Polestar 3. This model uses the SPA2 platform and will be built in at Volvo Car Group’s Charleston, South Carolina plant alongside the upcoming Volvo Embla. Following that, the compact Polestar 4 debuts in 2023. That model has the potential to turn into Polestar’s highest-volume model. In 2024, the Polestar 5 arrives featuring the brand-specific aluminum-intensive architecture and powertrain previewed at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
