Polestar has revealed that it will launch a drop-top, electric performance roadster concept, which it will call the Polestar 6.
The Polestar 6, which was first unveiled back in March as the Polestar 02 concept, will go into production and be available by 2026. Polestar claims it will boast a power output of up to 650 kW (884 hp) and 900 Nm from a dual motor powertrain, with targeted performance figures of 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds and 250km/h top speed.
“With the overwhelming consumer and press response, we took the decision to put this stunning roadster into production and I am so excited to make it a reality,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “Polestar 6 is a perfect combination of powerful electric performance and the thrill of fresh air with the top down.”
Revealed in Los Angeles in March as the Polestar O₂, the electric roadster concept builds on the design, technology and sustainability ambitions laid out by the Polestar Precept and showcases the brand’s vision for future sports cars.
The hard-top convertible will be built on Polestar’s bespoke bonded aluminum platform. Developed in-house, it will feature the high-performance, 800-Volt electric architecture already confirmed for Polestar 5.
To celebrate the launch, 500 numbered units of a special ‘LA Concept’ version, the ‘Polestar 6 LA Concept edition’, are planned to be produced. They will exclusively feature the unique ‘Sky’ blue exterior, light leather interior and unique 21in wheels of the original Polestar O₂ concept.
Further technical details and specification confirmations will be released as the production car becomes a reality, leading up to the expected launch in 2026.
