Polestar 4 is now officially available to order in New Zealand.

Following start of production and first deliveries in China at the end of 2023, Polestar has announced a starting price of $119,900.[1] Both Pilot and Plus packs are standard on all NZ vehicles, including Harman Kardon premium sound, Pixel LED headlights and 3­zone climate control. Production is planned to start towards the middle of 2024, with first deliveries expected in early September.

Polestar 4 transforms the aerodynamics of a coupé and the space of an SUV into a new breed of SUV coupé. Design cues first seen on Polestar’s concept cars are brought to production in the fastest Polestar production car to date. Polestar 4 is positioned between Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 in terms of size and price.

“The introduction of Polestar 4 into all our markets through the course of 2024 is key to our success, adding this third model to our line­up. Polestar 4 tackles the premium performance class in the D­SUV segment. Polestar 4’s innovative interpretation of an SUV coupé offers great interior space and a stunning appearance,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

As a design­ driven brand, the design of Polestar 4 sees the continuation of key elements first shown by the Polestar Precept concept car, coming to life. This includes eliminating the rear window which enables a new kind of immersive rear occupant experience, and the separation of the dual blade front lights with unique Polestar light signature. Aerodynamic efficiency is enhanced by the low nose, retractable door handles, flush glazing with frameless windows, rear aero blades and air flow optimisation around the rear light bar.

Polestar 4 is the fastest production car the brand has developed to date. The 0­100 km/h sprint can be completed in just 3.8 seconds and maximum power output is 400 kW. Motors are of a permanent magnet, synchronous design. Driving dynamics are true to the Polestar brand – sharp steering and handling responses result in a thrilling and nimble driving experience for all occupants.

Both dual­ and single ­motor variants are available, with the single­ motor featuring rear ­wheel drive. Despite the high output and performance, control and confidence are always key factors to produce a responsible, everyday­ enjoyable EV experience. Semi­active suspension features in the dual­ motor version for an additional layer of adjustment between comfort and performance dynamics. Wheels range from 20 to 22­inches in size, with tyres supplied by Pirelli and Michelin, depending on configuration.

A 100 kWh battery is fitted to both long­ range versions. The Long range Dual motor features 400 kW, 686 Nm and a preliminary range target of up to 580 km WLTP. A disconnect clutch allows the car to disengage the front electric motor when not needed, to maximise range and efficiency. The Long range Single motor version features a 200 kW and 343 Nm motor at the rear, and preliminary range target of up to 610 km WLTP.

Up to 200 kW DC and 22 kW AC charging is included for both versions, and the charge lid is motorised. Bi­directional charging hardware is included, with vehicle­-to-­load (V2L) functionality planned to be made available at a later date, providing for external devices to draw power from Polestar 4. A heat pump is fitted as standard, allowing the car to capitalise on ambient heat when preconditioning the cabin and battery.
