.............................................................
This is the Polestar 1!
It’s been a long-time coming, but Mat’s finally got his hands on the first car produced by Volvo’s performance division since they've gone it alone!
When it comes to the looks, there’s no denying that the Polestar 1 is a gorgeous set of wheels. Not only that, but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment if you invest in one of these, as it’s a plug-in hybrid that can drive for 77 miles on electric power alone - the most of any PHEV available today!
But just because it’s a hybrid doesn’t mean it’s down on power, as under the bonnet you’ll find a 2-litre supercharged engine which, along with two electric motors, can deliver 609hp and an amazing 1000Nm!
Sadly, there’s one downside… It costs £139,000!!! So, is it worth it? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    The car is an absolute beauty, and its innovative. All it needs is some great engine sound mimic system (great 5 cylinder sound or i6) and Volvo does them so they will probably have some access to the technology. I love the car, not sure about the price but other than that i really like it. It definitely stands out from the crowd.

    5:11 all the good things stop say hello to the heaven of criticism Volvo and Polestar are having a harsh time because they are only allowed to use 3 and 4 cylinder engines. I can't blame them for getting permission for the Chinese company that owns them was a very nice company but they were on the limits of small engines and will become a zero Simpson zone. Fun fact making an electric car is really harsh and at one point in the earth all of those materials will run out and as people are charging their cars and a wide goes off in the industrial site where electricity is made. People will die because of this and I would prefer the combustion engine because not all people can afford electric cars and neither can they charge them if they are in a house. Without a garage or it's too small. I'm sorry to say but there will never be an electric lorry or van. They might have a decent range but you can no longer have the ice amenities of before such as air conditioning when your range drops significantly. I don't see how this will work out and you don't get the fun from a combustion engine on your commute to work. Just if you want the world to survive just put a load of petrol particulate filters on them or DPF on them with a lighter exhaust so it is only 1kg heavier making much less emissions. And that is how you solve problems. People will move out of Europe somewhere else because of the tax payments and simply they can't afford it here. And the ULEZ zones. People are charged and the rich parliament on wait aren't we paying for their expensive cars?

    As a diehard volvo/polestar fan I have to say this car is not up to it's best. Way too overpriced for what you get. No launch control. Can't even drift. I mean I would rather buy an m5 competition for half the price and get 100x better performance out of it. Sorry but it's not worth it. The polestar 2 however seems to be much better.

    Imagine a GT that’s even more economical, handles and drives way better, is more practical, more luxurious, is from an infinitely more reputable and special brand and is half the price of this. It’s called a Porsche Taycan. Half price. You can drive away in a brand new Taycan and $80k left over or part with all that money to drive a lesser car just to be one of 1500 possible oafs who would rather be an exclusive member of a club that sounds a lot like porn star that is a sub brand of another that sounds like vulva.

    If I were looking for luxury I would get a E Class coupe over a Bentley, but the Bentley just has a level of exclusivity that's very alluring. And for the same reason one would get a Bentley over an E Class, I would get *this* over a Bentley. This looks massively better imo ( I know I just triggered some sensitive people lol) and is something you don't ever see on the road.

    Panel Gaps! (sort of) in the Tesla and some over cars the hidden door handle is just the handle so there is only 1 outline (the handle). Why does Polstar have a hidden door handle inside of a fitted door handle?? What I'm saying is; there is a door handle cut out for the door handle cut out for the hidden door handle. Not a smooth finish really....
