Polestar starts production of the Polestar 3 in Chengdu

Polestar plans to have a line-up of five performance EVs by 2026. Polestar 2, the electric performance fastback, launched in 2019. Polestar 3, the SUV for the electric age, launched in late 2022. Polestar 4, the SUV coupé transformed, is launching in phases through 2023 and into 2024. Polestar 5, an electric four-door GT and Polestar 6, an electric roadster, are coming soon.

Polestar, the Swedish electric performance car brand, started production of Polestar 3 in Chengdu, China. Additional production is slated to start in South Carolina, USA, in the middle of 2024. The first early production test series in the American factory has been completed successfully.

Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO said, “This stunning car takes a significant step forward with start of production marking an important milestone on our journey from a one- to three-car company this year. We have also achieved launch readiness at the factory in Ridgeville, South Carolina, and are well on track with our plans to start manufacturing Polestar 3 in the USA.”

Polestar 3 will be the first Polestar to be produced on two continents, supporting the company’s growth ambitions across North America, Europe and Asia.
