Volvo might increase Polestar 1 production

By Faiming_low on 09 Feb 2018

Attached Image Despite not being available for test drives, the Polestar 1 has been garnering lots of interest and demand is said to be more than supply.

When the car was revealed, its production numbers were capped at 1500 units with 500 of them to be built annually for the next three years. But apparently, more than 5000 people have expressed interest in owning the car, according to Automotive News's interview with Polestar chief executive Thomas Ingenlath.


“We are looking at whether we could do a higher volume than 500 units a year. We are checking that out. I think there is potential to go to two shifts,” he said.

It then cite that building the hybrid coupe is going to be a challenge as it is Volvo's first car to have
carbon fiber body.


The car is unlikely to be road legal in Singapore as it is only produced in left-hand drive configuration. It is said to be able to output 592bhp and 1000Nm of torque when both engine and electric motors combine together.
