Polestar’s newest 2024 Polestar 5 GT 4-door with proper sports EV is ready for its closeup, the electric vehicle maker just dropped official pics of the Polestar 5, a sleek four-door GT sports coupe making its public debut at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
This hotly anticipated EV is the production version of the concept car unveiled. Sporting a radical new design and futuristic styling, the Polestar 5 looks primed to electrify Goodwood when it travels up Lord March’s driveway from July 13-16 alongside the Polestar 3 SUV, special edition Polestar 2, and other upcoming models.
After reaching record delivery numbers in Q2 2023, Polestar has its sights set on selling between 60,000-70,000 vehicles in 2023. The Polestar 5 won’t hit the streets until 2024, but it represents a pivotal milestone for the brand, according to CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
“The Polestar 5 is a company-defining project,” said Ingenlath. “Its advanced design and engineering set the tone for the future of Polestar.”
Sharing only a Polestar badge with its predecessors, the low-slung Polestar 5 introduces a radically new design direction for the Swedish EV maker. Sporting distinctive L-shaped headlamps and the brand’s latest front grille styling, the coupe oozes futuristic vibes with hidden door handles and a cool rearview mirror display.
Built on an all-new bonded aluminum platform, Polestar engineers say the 5 will be lightweight yet extremely rigid. An 800-volt electrical architecture helps deliver sports car-like performance, with a dual motor AWD powertrain targeting 874 hp and a 0-62 mph sprint under 4 seconds.
Ingenlath admits the Polestar 5 represents new territory for the fledgling automaker. “Its advanced design and engineering set the tone for the future of Polestar,” he said. Production specs will be finalized next year ahead of the 2024 launch.
For now, all eyes turn to Goodwood, where the Polestar 5 will make its dynamic debut. “We are delighted to show the Polestar 5 up the hill,” said Ingenlath. “Our UK-based R&D team has done excellent work developing this car.”
