At the Polestar Day celebration in Los Angeles, California, Polestar formally presented the production version of their much awaited Polestar 5. The carmaker, supported by Geely, unveiled the Polestar 5 alongside its current models, giving fans a preview of what’s to come from the company.
The Polestar 5, slated for an official launch in 2025, maintains the sleek and distinctive design traits seen in other Polestar models while asserting its own unique personality. The sedan features split headlights reminiscent of the Polestar 4, and although it lacks a traditional grille, the front design incorporates expressive lines and creases, giving the Polestar 5 a distinctive character.
Up front, the split headlights, similar to those seen on the Polestar 4, create a modern and unique look. While lacking a traditional grille, the front of the car is characterised by dynamic lines and creases, adding personality to the design. The flowing roofline tapers back to an elongated decklid with no rear window, providing a standout feature that distinguishes the Polestar 5 in the sedan segment. The rear features a large LED light bar and a black bumper, contributing to the car’s contemporary aesthetic.
Under the hood, the Polestar 5 boasts an impressive 872hp and 900Nm of torque generated by its two electric motors, utilizing an 800-volt electric architecture. The car is expected to leverage advanced battery technology, with Polestar recently announcing a collaboration with StoreDot to develop fast-charging batteries capable of delivering 161km of range in just five minutes without degradation. While it is not confirmed if the Polestar 5 will feature this battery tech upon launch, a prototype will undergo testing.
Polestar Day attendees had the opportunity to explore the brand’s full range, including the 2024 Polestar 2, Polestar 3, Polestar 4, Polestar Precept, Polestar Electric Roadster Concept, and the Polestar Synergy. Test drives of the enhanced Polestar 2 were offered, and passengers experienced rides in the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4, showcasing the brand’s commitment to innovation and electrification.
