Ingenlath said, “Polestar O2 is the hero car for our brand.” Ingenlath continued, “It opens the door to our secret chamber of future potential. This is a taste of what we can design and engineer with the talent and technology we have in-house. It looks incredible, and being able to lower the roof and not hear an engine promises a superb sensation.”
While it isn’t yet clear when the Polestar O2 will be produced and delivered, but with the Polestar Precept set to debut in world markets by 2024, the O2 might not be far behind.
In January, Ingenlath also announced that Polestar’s EV sales are expected to grow tenfold by 2025.
