The Polestar 4 is Only Available for Preorder in One Country Right Now
The Polestar 4 is coming soon, bringing a striking design and no rear window. Though it will eventually become available in several countries, including the U.S., Polestar’s launching the oddball EV in China to start. The $60,000-ish Polestar 4 is now available for preorder only in China, using the company’s QR code and app.
Polestar opened preorders for the 4 a couple of days ago, and production is expected to begin later this year in China. We’re not scheduled to get the vehicle until deep into 2024, but the company has other plans for the United States. The automaker has been building vehicles in China and exporting them to the U.S., but that could change with the upcoming Polestar 3, which could align with Volvo’s manufacturing presence in South Carolina.
The Polestar 2 is on sale now, and the Polestar 3 is expected late in 2023. Though unique, neither is as radical as the upcoming Polestar 4, which ditched its rear window in favor of a wide-angle camera and high-definition monitor. The EV also features numerous sustainability and production refinements that reduce the number of raw plastics and other materials involved in building the new SUV.
