When Polestar revealed its jaw-dropping O2 convertible concept earlier this year, CEO Thomas Ingenlath said that it would be “irresponsible” not to launch a production version of the electric drop-top sports car. Following an “overwhelming” consumer response, the firm will now do just that.
Expected in 2026, the production version, which will be called the Polestar 6, will keep the concept’s folding hard-top and use the same bonded aluminium platform as the Polestar 5 grand tourer, which is due a year earlier. It will also share that car’s 800V charging architecture and twin-motor, four-wheel-drive powertrain, which produces 874bhp and 663lb ft for a 3.2sec 0-62mph time and a 155mph top speed.
