The Polestar O₂ concept revealed in Los Angeles in March 2022 has received the green signal for launch. The production electric roadster derived from the show car, named Polestar 6, will go on sale in 2026.
Design & Interior
The Polestar O₂ is a funky little hard-top convertible that embodies the brand’s design language that debuted in the Polestar Precept concept in 2020. The 6, its production version, will have the same roof configuration, Polestar has confirmed. With a low and wide body, a compact 2+2 cabin, a long wheelbase, and short overhangs, the electric roadster will look like a classic sports car. However, the bold design elements drawn from the O₂ (and thus the Precept) will give it a very futuristic styling.
Inside, the 6 could feature sustainably produced innovative materials that are further recyclable and in line with its concept of circularity. We expect a two-spoke steering wheel, a 15-inch portrait touchscreen, a free-standing digital instrument cluster, and ultra-wide, slim AC vents integrated into a low-profile dashboard as well.
The Polestar 6 will sit on a modified version of the Polestar 5’s bespoke bonded aluminum platform, developed at the Polestar UK R&D center situated in Coventry, England. It will share even an in-house developed 800-volt battery pack with the electric sedan. At the Polestar Night event held in New York on December 1, 2021, the company revealed that it is developing a 22 kW bidirectional onboard charger for the Polestar 3 and Polestar 5. There’s no doubt that the company wouldn’t offer the same onboard charger in the 6.
The range-topping 6 will sport two motors producing 650 kW (871 hp) and 900 Nm (664 lb.-ft.) of torque. Polestar is targeting a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The Polestar 6 will cost USD 200,000 (indicative price) in its launch edition, called LA Concept. The Polestar 6 LA Concept edition will feature the unique ‘Sky’ blue paint, light leather interior, and unique 21-inch wheels of the concept version. Polestar has limited the sales of the LA Concept edition to 500 units. Interested customers can secure a build slot with a fully refundable reservation fee of USD 25,000.
