Should the Polestar 1 hybrid coupe have a drop-top twin?

Polestar 1 Shooting Brake Render Makes You Wish For The Impossible

The Polestar also unveiled the 600hp Polestar 1, the company's first vehicle, which is set to roll off the production line in mid-2019New Delhi: The performance brand of Volvo Group Polestar announced that its all future cars have a fully-electric powertrain. Now, someone has made a decision to explore the idea of a dreamy convertible by chopping off the fixed metal roof.

"Most electric cars are fast - that's a product of the attributes of an electric motor", says Ingenlath. Polestar 2 will start production later in 2019 and will be the first battery-electric vehicle (BEV) from the Volvo Car Group.

The firm also said in July that all its auto models launched after 2019 will be electric or hybrids, making it the first major traditional automaker to set a date for phasing out vehicles powered exclusively by the internal combustion engine.

Polestar boss Thomas Ingenlath said: "Being part of the Volvo Car Group enables Polestar to design, develop and engineer our cars using the processes of a well-established car company but, at the same time, enables us to experiment with new technology in lower-volume cars outside the mainstream segments".

Porsche is continuing development of its first full battery-electric vehicle (BEV), the Mission E.

Apple unveils gender-neutral emoji coming to iPhone
The software will also come with the same new Emoji that we have seen recently for the iPhone and iPad in the iOS 11.1 beta. It might be that older phones are less compatible with the design of apps that update when a new version of iOS comes out.

The Polestar 1 will form a halo for the future Polestar brand. In addition, Polestar owners will have the option to rent other Volvo Cars vehicles. Polestar 1 is a two-door, 2+2 seat Grand Tourer Coupé with an "Electric Performance Hybrid" drivetrain. Production will begin in mid-2019 at a new dedicated plant in Chengdu.

It is true that Polestar's volume models are still to come. Cars will be ordered 100% online and offered on a two- or three-year subscription basis.

A Polestar subscription won't require a down payment, will include additional services and benefits such as rental access to vehicle accessories and alternative Polestar/Volvo models, and won't necessarily entail a trip to the dealership, with the availability of a purely Web-based sales experience.

This is where future Polestar customers can interact with products and the brand. This is facilitated by Phone-As-Key technology.
