Polestar 5 GT to debut exclusive powertrain

Polestar will showcase a development prototype of the Polestar 5 at this weekend’s 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed, with the high-performance electric 4-door GT to unleash 650kW of power and 900Nm of torque from its exclusive dual motor powertrain.

“Polestar 5 is shaping up to be a superb 4-door GT and a true Polestar at heart. The platform combines low-volume performance car attributes with modern technological advances to bring light-weight, high-rigidity sports car chassis technology into mass production,” Polestar’s UK head of R&D Pete Allen said.

The UK team has taken the opportunity of working with a new mechanical platform to design and develop a unique bonded aluminium chassis. Likewise, in Sweden, development of a new rear electric motor will provide superior output, along with 800-Volt architecture.

“The new powertrain we are working on will set a new brand benchmark in our high-performing cars. Combining strong electric motor engineering ability with advances in light-weight platform technology is leading to truly stunning driver’s cars,” Polestar CTO Jörg Brandscheid said.

The Polestar 5 will run up the iconic Goodwood hill twice daily during the event in the “First Glance” group. The car is planned for launch in 2024 and is the third of three new EVs on the horizon, including the Polestar 3 and 4 electric SUVs.

“Polestar 5 is a company-defining project,” Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said. “Its progressive design and advanced engineering set the tone for Polestar’s future. We have great talent on board enabling us to create truly iconic EVs.”

The three new models will join the existing Polestar 2, already on sale in Australia.
