For the rest of the world, Polestar 4 will launch in early 2024, and deliveries will start in the summer of 2024. Polestar is an EV brand under Geely-owned Volvo.

China-made 4 will be mainly sold domestically and in Europe, while the US market will be served by Korea-made vehicles, avoiding 25% tariffs on Chinese vehicle imports. Polestar announced it would produce Polestar 4 in Busan, South Korea, during the Polestar Brand Day on November 9.

Polestar will have five factories in three countries (the US, China, and South Korea). Despite the Geely-owned Polestar likes to call itself a Swedish-China automaker, no announcement on the European factory was made. There are rumors about building a factory in 2027, but even that is not certain.

Polestar 4 is built on a 4845/2008/1544 mm chassis on a 2999 mm wheelbase. Its curb weight is 2,170 kg, and the maximum speed is limited to 200 km/h, at least in China.

It is a good-looking sports EV with lots of futuristic elements – one you will remember for sure – it doesn’t have a rear glass. It wears 22″ forged wheels equipped with 4*piston Brembo calipers, matched with Pirelli P ZERO tires in size 265/40 R22.

The interior is very Tesla-like and minimalistic, with almost no physical buttons, only a 9″ instrument panel for the driver, and a large central control screen.
