The Polestar 6 will not be restricted to just an initial 500 batch of cars, with Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath confirming that the brand “would not stop at 500 if people want it”.
This comes shortly after the 6 was presented The Quail and Pebble Beach in the US, where the 500-strong batch sold out just one week after its debut.
To be launched in 2026, Polestar design boss Maximilian Missoni said the purpose of the 6 was to “create an everyday sports car for the electric age”. The car was able to be used as a “daily driver but with high-performance”.
It takes much of its design influence from the O2 convertible concept shown in March this year, which reportdely received an “overwhelming” response from customers and led Polestar to put it into production as the 6.
The production 6 keeps the concept’s folding hard-top and use the same bonded aluminium platform as the Polestar 5 grand tourer.
Power comes from the same 800V charging architecture and dual-motor, four-wheel-drive powertrain as the 5. In this guise, it produces 874bhp and 663lb ft for a 3.2sec 0-62mph time and a 155mph top speed.
The 6 will arrive as one of just a handful of dedicated two-seat sports EVs due in the coming years from brands including Alpine, Lotus, MG and Porsche, although it looks set to place more of an emphasis on long-distance refinement and luxury.
As it’s based on an adapted version of the aluminium architecture that has been developed by Polestar’s UK engineering base in Warwickshire for the forthcoming 5, the 6 should offer comparable “supercar levels” of body stiffness.
