Polestar 1 pre-orders start in 18 countries

Polestar 1 live at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Polestar has begun taking deposits for its first model, the Polestar 1, before it arrives later this year.

That deposit is fully refundable should you change your mind, though you might be swayed by some numbers.

"With over 7,000 people interested in owning a Polestar 1 since its reveal, we are extremely encouraged by the passion shown for our product", said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

Although it may be built on Volvo's Scalable Platform Architecture, and bear more than a passing resemblance to the S90 coupe concept, roughly 50 per cent of the auto is new and bespoke to Polestar.

Along with the opening of the pre-order process, a new auto configuration tool allows prospective customers to visualise their Polestar 1 before placing their pre-order.

There are 18 initial launch markets for the Polestar 1.

Final pricing hasn't been revealed for the Swedish performance machine, but Polestar has confirmed that the auto will only be available on subscription, requiring monthly payments. Basically, your only additional cost will be fuel.

The 1 is also the first vehicle be equipped with Ohlins' Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension, whereby each damper is fitted with an electronic valve to constantly monitor both the driver's inputs and the road surface, appropriately adapting the car's dynamics to suit the situation in just two milliseconds. The Polestar 1 will be produced in China at a purpose-built facility in Chengdu that will finish construction later this year. The company eventually started offering performance upgrades for Volvo cars and in 2015 was bought by the Swedish automaker. The Polestar 1 features a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine up front, and a pair of electric motors. In 2017, Polestar was spun off into a standalone brand for electrified cars.
