Why the 884bhp Polestar 5 charges as fast as it goes

The Polestar 5 seems to be a very interesting car. Too bad it won’t be released until 2024. The four-door GT, as Polestar calls the model, is on show in prototype form this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will spend some time on the famed hill climb. A fast time, probably, because with 884 hp and four-wheel drive, the Polestar 5 comes out of its place.

The Polestar 5 is the production version of the Polestar Precept study vehicle, which was unveiled in 2020. Little is known about the four-door coupe for the time being. We know that it will be on the market in 2024, it will be Porsche Taycan size and will be built CO2-neutral.

Polestar has now also revealed details about the powertrain. In the 5 are two electric motors, which together deliver 884 hp and 900 Nm. Charging is probably very fast, because the Polestar has a system voltage of 800 Volts. The Porsche Taycan also has that and achieves a charging speed of 270 kW with it.

First introduction of Polestar 3 and 4

Polestar is still a small brand, currently with only the Polestar 2 on the price list (the Polestar 1 was a very limited hybrid luxury coupe). In the run-up to the launch of the 5, two other Polestar models, both electric SUVs, will be launched. The Polestar 3 first and then the Polestar 4.
