Polestar (sort of) reveals new SUV, its first U.S.-made electric vehicle

Polestar, an electric spinoff brand from Volvo and China-based Geely, is making its third EV next year. It’ll be called, predictably, the Polestar 3. But unlike its first two cars, this will be Polestar’s first SUV. 

On Wednesday, the EV company released the first official photo of the third electric car, giving a very obscured glimpse to the size and shape of the compact SUV. The Polestar 1 is a sleek hybrid sports car, while the Polestar 2 is a small sedan with more than 250-mile range that starts just under $60,000.

The Polestar 3 will also be the first car the company will manufacture in the U.S. Its first two cars were made in China. The 3 will be made at the Volvo Cars production center in Ridgeville, South Carolina. 

The Polestar 1, made at a facility in Chengdu since 2017, will cease production by the end of this year. Just in time for the Polestar 3 to start up in 2022.

There aren’t many details yet about the upcoming SUV, but it will be all-electric like the Polestar 2 and also feature a built-in Google operating system for navigation, music, and all other infotainment needs.
