I hear you, the funny things is that in my mind Polestar is the M/AMG division of Volvo. Them doing their own power division would detract from the brand in my opinion.Despite all the talk about the BST being a one-off run, its success probably means that Polestar have found their M/AMG division. Little doubt that this is an updated BST, or that we’ll see a similarly tuned version of Polestar 3 and every other new model, too.
But that is the bottom end Eletre. When I spec my version it is more like £95K difference The Eletre is cool, but it needs a few options.Agreed, in the UK at least the Lotus Eletre is £5k more than a performance P3 and has another 130bhp and in my view seems a lot more special.
I can see a decent spec electric Macan being P3 money as well...
I agree, it would be a good deal if it was priced as a standard loaded all pack version to clear it. But at £24K extra (in the UK) for what is not a faster car, you could do a heck of a lot of personalisation yourself.The suede/nubuk is a nice touch but very obvious they just picked from parts bin from Volvo for the seats (it’s a dust magnet).
I hope it gets to hand who people want to enjoy the car. Seen too many post about resale value etc. This ain’t a Porsche, heck it doesn’t even hold value like BMWs.
Or that special Swedish blueThe BST 24(0) will feature in 'Vanish' - NATO Olive
Absolutely, it is good there is a choice. And colour preference is a very personal thing. I still find it an interesting (in the UK sense of the word) choice, almost certainly targetting a certain demographic. Not a colour you'd see on the modified car, nor performance car scenes typically. But I'm sure they've done their market research based upon buyer demographic from Volvo.Hey to each their own. I love the sage green on the P2. Keeps the clean understated design aesthetic of Polestar to me. Looks great with the stripe.
Or part leather, part grey wool.Actually, the more I think of it, I think I'd really like a BST style (lowered, painted body cladding) car in Fjord Blue, with the Zinc leather interior, with the gold seatbelts. That, or since they seem ready and willing to raid the Volvo parts bin for seating material, swap the zinc leather for the grey wool interior.
Can't stand Fashion Grey either. To me that is unfashionable grey, give me Hockenheim Silver any day for a nice youthful and cheery grey.I beg to differ! This colour again is very reminiscent of BMW’s Fashion grey where’s I describe it as milk tea and Nebula being matcha latte. 🍵
I like it. And why stop there, get a carbon hood, roof and bonnet as wellExactly this. The Brembos and Ohlins on performance is absolutely great and it’s most evident on track but what the % of owners doing that?
It’s a niche to nichest esp when it’s an EV. The BST lacks enough justification to be charging more.
I wish they gone even more. Charge 100k but take the rear seats out and put a rollcage In it. The car needs less weight to be proper performance machine. I love to see a BMW CSL or AR GTAm level limited edition that absolutely push the limit of what PS2 can be.
But again this is a young brandthat still trying to figure it out.
They are closing the factory, switch the tooling/parts to the MY24. Transportation may have a delay, building it won't...Well, if it is the same story as the BST270, you might be in for a surprise about delays
