Polestar unveils pricing and specs for Polestar 4 crossover
Set for August delivery, this latest electric SUV starts from £59,990
Pricing details and specifications for the eagerly anticipated Polestar 4 crossover have now been disclosed, setting the stage for the vehicle's customer deliveries slated for August.
In Europe, the Polestar 4 will be available exclusively with a 100kWh battery, giving buyers the choice between single or dual electric motor configurations.
The 'Long Range' version, equipped with a single motor, is priced starting at £59,990. This model is said to offer a competitive WLTP range of 379 miles, aligning it closely with entry-level competitors such as the Porsche Macan. It boasts a power output of 286bhp and a torque of 343Nm.
Positioned above the single motor model is the dual motor variant of the Polestar 4, which is priced at £66,990. This model enhances performance significantly, offering 536bhp and 686Nm of torque, enough to reach 62 mph in 3.7 seconds, while its range is slightly reduced to 360 miles.
To enhance efficiency, this version features the capability to disengage the front motor when it's not in use, thereby reducing unnecessary energy consumption.
Both versions of the Polestar 4 share the same peak DC charging rate of 200kW and come with a heat pump as standard, a feature designed to minimise battery depletion during colder weather.
Additionally, for the first time in a Polestar vehicle, the inclusion of vehicle-to-load (V2L) functionality allows the car's battery to supply power to external equipment.
In terms of dimensions, the Polestar 4 measures 4.84 metres in length, 2,139 millimetres in width, and 1,544 millimetres in height, supported by a wheelbase of 2,999 millimetres, ensuring ample interior space. The vehicle features electrically reclining seats and a panoramic roof extending beyond the rear passengers, complemented by ambient lighting for an enhanced travel experience.
The interior, marked by its minimalism, bears the distinctive Polestar identity with gold seatbelts, and is equipped with an Android Automotive infotainment system, showcased on a 15.4-inch landscape screen.
Both models also come equipped with a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, a 14.7-inch head-up display that includes a snow mode with yellow font, MicroTech upholstery, and a heated steering wheel.
Additionally, a range of driving assistance features is standard. The optional Pilot Pack, at £1,300, adds support for acceleration, braking, steering, and lane changing up to 93mph,while the Pro Pack introduces larger wheels with Swedish gold valve caps.
This introduction of the 4 follows the successful update of the Polestar 2, the launch of the Polestar 3, and the anticipation surrounding the upcoming launches of the Polestar 5 and 6, which are expected to make their debut soon.
