The rush of new all-electric cars continues apace with Polestar teasing its first SUV. The electric-only car brand offshoot of Volvo has relieved a heavily camouflaged version of its forthcoming Polestar 3, but there enough to see to suggest it could be a winner.

Volvo’s all-electric car sub brand Polestar has given a partial reveal of its upcoming SUV, the Polestar 3. As the first such model from the brand, it will play a vital role in expanding its market presence as the public appetite for all-electric vehicles continues apace. The Polestar 3 will hit the road in 2022 and will compete against similar higher-end offerings from Tesla, Audi, Mercedes, Rivian and Fisker.

With the United States one of the leading markets for all-electric vehicles, Polestar has understood from the beginning that the Polestar 3 needed to be made in the US. As Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath puts it, “We will build in America for Americans.” As the accompanying image reveals, it continues with some of the signature design language features that have been the hallmark of the Polestar 1 and 2, but is obviously a higher-riding vehicle than those models.

There aren’t a lot of details about the Polestar 3 at this stage, but it will feature the latest version of Volvo’s semi-autonomous Highway Pilot system that will take control of a vehicle on well-defined highways. To help enable this functionality, the Polestar 3 will be fitted with a lidar sensor from Luminar, which also provides similar components to Volvo-branded vehicles. Following the release of the Polestar 3, the company plans to further expand its range with the Polestar 4 compact SUV in 2023 and the Polestar 4 sports sedan in 2024.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
