Polestar, the Swedish electric performance car brand, confirms New Zealand pricing for Polestar 3, which can now be ordered online at

Polestar 3 will be on New Zealand roads in the second half of 2023, with the first customer deliveries scheduled for January 2024, with two versions, the Long range Dual motor, priced from $154,900 plus On road costs, and the Long range Dual motor with Performance Pack, starting at $169,900 Plus on road costs.

Polestar New Zealand Brand Manager, Bruce Fowler, says: “Polestar 3 is already generating a great deal of interest from New Zealand buyers and we are confident that the confirmation of pricing, combined with its style, specification, sustainability, and performance, will make Polestar 3 as popular as the award­winning Polestar 2 in Aotearoa.”

The list of standard equipment in Polestar 3 is extensive, with few options for easy configuration. All versions include air suspension, a full length panoramic glass roof, LED lighting inside and out, retractable door handles with proximity sensing, and 21­inch alloy wheels. The Plus Pack and Pilot Pack are fitted as standard for the first model year and include a raft of premium, luxury, and convenience features like a 25­speaker audio system from Bowers & Wilkins with 3D surround sound and Dolby Atmos capability, soft­ closing doors, head­ up display and Pilot Assist.

The dual­ motor configuration with power bias towards the rear produces a total of 360 kW and 840 Nm of torque. With the optional Performance Pack, total output is upped to 380 kW and 910 Nm.

Adjustable one ­pedal drive is included, as well as an electric Torque Vectoring Dual Clutch function on the rear axle – an evolution of what was first developed for Polestar 1. A decoupling function is also available for the rear electric motor, allowing the car to run only on the front electric motor to save energy under certain circumstances.

Advanced chassis control is provided by dual­ chamber air suspension as standard, allowing Polestar 3 to adapt between comfort and dynamic suspension characteristics, and the car can adjust its active damper velocity electronically once every two milliseconds (500 Hz).

A 111 kWh battery pack provides Polestar 3 with generous driving range of up to 610 km WLTP (preliminary). The lithium­-ion battery features a prismatic cell design housed in a protective aluminium case with boron steel reinforcement and liquid cooling. A heat pump is included as standard, helping Polestar 3 utilise ambient heat for climate­ and battery preconditioning.

Polestar 3 is also equipped for bidirectional charging, enabling future potential for vehicle­ to-grid and plug­ and ­charge capabilities.
