Polestar is relatively new and has only one model for now, but the company promises that two more EVs will follow in the next decade. The Polestar 2 will likely be an EV sedan or sportback, with the Polestar 3 confirmed by Volvo to be an SUV.

The Polestar 1 is powered by two electric motors at the back which make a combined 218 horsepower with an estimated range of 93 miles on a single charge. For additional performance, the 2-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine up front teams with those electric motors for the full 600. Polestar says this car has the longest range of any hybrid on the market.
