Polestar and South Korean battery manufacturer SK On have signed an agreement on the supply of battery cell modules for the forthcoming Polestar 5 electric 4-door GT. SK On was chosen by Polestar due to their battery cell technology that offers high-performing chemistry, fast charging, efficient discharging and superior driving range. The high-nickel battery cell modules comprise ultra-long 56 cm cells with high energy density.
“Our relationship with SK On has been fruitful following our initial MOU and their investment in our brand,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “Polestar 5 is developing at pace and will feature this high-capacity battery to provide the performance expected of our grand tourer.”
“We are delighted to collaborate with Polestar on its top-tier EV model,” said Jee Dong-seob, CEO of SK On. “We will solidify our partnership with Polestar and create new opportunities through this agreement.”
With production planned to start in 2025, Polestar 5 is the evolution of the Polestar Precept concept car and is being previewed in a YouTube documentary series, “From Concept to Car”, which details its journey to reality.
