Polestar CEO wants to put sexy O2 drop-top concept into production

Polestar CEO wants to put sexy O2 drop-top concept into production

Elsewhere, Ingenlath shared more about the Polestar 5’s incredibly powerful electric setup. With 872 horsepower on tap, that’s certainly an achievement, especially when you consider the rear engine was developed in-house.

“It’s insane and amazing, and it’s great to do that, and you can imagine what kind of car you get there,” said the CEO. But he is well aware that, very soon, such high outputs will not be impressive. “But that 870 horsepower won’t be excellent, because Tesla can do that… anyone can do that.”

Where Polestar will differentiate its four-door GT car is the driving experience. It should be fun to drive, he says, with great handling and precise steering. As for who is going to buy it, Ingenlath told the UK publication that this will appeal to “all people who are excited about not driving an SUV.”
