The Polestar 3 is based on the next generation Volvo XC90, but it will be more sporty and luxurious. Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath is now revealing more details about the new car.
In an interview with Car driver Thomas Ingenlath tells more about the Polestar 3 electric car than was previously known.
The Polestar 3 will be manufactured at the same plant in the US as the next-generation Volvo XC90 and shares the bottom plate. But the Polestar 3 will not be practically oriented, it will be more luxurious and sporty. Unlike the XC90, the Polestar 3 doesn’t get a third row of seats.
The second line really gets a sense of luxury, says Car & Driver CEO Thomas Ingenlatt.
Polestar 3 will contain Sloped roof line from Volvo brother.
– I don’t mind three rows of seats per se. Having two rows gives the car the opportunity to give the car an aerodynamic roofline, and gives the opportunity to emphasize the space between the first and second rows, really giving the second row a feeling of luxury, says Thomas Ingenlath, who has a background as lead designer at Volvo.

Four-wheel drive and rear
Volvo XC90 is just coming It is made with all-wheel drive, while the Polestar 3 is all-wheel drive and rear wheel drive. The top version has more power than the XC90.
There are many people who do not need four-wheel drive. In Norway or Austria we will always sell more SUVs. But in China or the United States, many are happy with a single engine, he told Ingenlath Car & Driver.
