At launch, the Polestar 4 will be available with a single-motor or dual-motor powertrain, the latter of which produces 544 horsepower and 686Nm of torque.


Polestar has just revealed their latest electric performance coupé SUV, the Polestar 4. 

Touted as the brand’s second SUV offering, the Polestar 4 is a D-segment vehicle positioned between the Polestar 3 SUV and Polestar 2 sedan in terms of size and pricing, despite what its nomenclature would suggest.

When it goes on sale, the Polestar 4 will be offered in RWD Long Range Single Motor (LRSM) or AWD Long Range Dual Motor (LRDM) variants, both of which are built atop the Geely group’s Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) platform.

The design of Polestar 4 borrows heavily from that of the Polestar 3 while incorporating design elements from the Polestar 5 concept such as the dual-blade headlight/DRL cluster and the removal of the aerodynamic “wing” above the Smart Zone “grille” of the Polestar 3 – because there is no grille to speak of. It also features retractable door handles and minimal creases in the bodywork to reduce turbulent airflow.

Thanks to these exterior tweaks, the Polestar 4 is the most aerodynamic vehicle in the brand’s product range with a drag coefficient figure of just Cd 0.269.

For reference, that trumps the drag coefficient figures of Polestar’s previous production models (Cd 0.365 for Polestar 1, Cd 0.278 for Polestar 2 and Cd 0.29 in Polestar 3). However, improved efficiency and range aren’t the only benefits of the Polestar 4’s aerodynamic qualities. 

Earlier last week we mentioned that the Polestar 4 was going to be the quickest-accelerating model in the brand’s current catalogue. Now that the details and specifications of both cars have been revealed, the LRDM model certainly lives up to that claim.

In its all-wheel-drive LRDM spec, the Polestar 4 generates a combined 544 horsepower and 686Nm of torque from its dual-motor drivetrain. While those power figures are overshadowed by the 609hp/1000Nm that the Polestar 1 PHEV produces, the hybrid performance GT’s 4.1 second century sprint time is eclipsed by the Polestar 4 LRDM’s quoted 3.8 second 0-100km/h acceleration time.

That disparity could be down to the Polestar 1’s inability to channel its peak power as quickly as an EV drivetrain, or the Polestar 4’s improved drag coefficient.

The Polestar 4 LRDM can also be optioned with a Performance Pack, which sees the addition of four-piston Brembo brakes, 22-inch forged alloys wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres, Polestar Engineered performance chassis tuning and of course, Swedish gold detailing as we’ve seen on the Polestar 2 LRDM Performance Pack.

On the more genial end of the spectrum, the Polestar 4 LRSM produces a more modest 272 horsepower and 343Nm of torque from its rear-mounted motor. On paper, the PS4 LRSM has a quoted 0-100km/h sprint time of 7.4 seconds (which incidentally is identical to that of the Polestar 2 SRSM).

Both cars are fitted with the same 102kWh battery pack (with 94kWh of usable capacity) that has peak AC and DC charging rates of 22kW and 200kW respectively. The PS4 LRSM is the lighter car of the two, tipping the scales at 2,232kg compared to the LRDM’s 2,351kg. The LRSM also has improved efficiency figures than the LRDM with a WLTP range target of up to 600km compared to 564km in the more powerful vehicle.

(It’s worth noting that the Polestar 4’s acceleration, range and efficiency figures are based on preliminary data. Official certification figures will be made available in 2024)
