Polestar 4 Revealed as a Svelte SUV Coupe Without a Rear Windscreen

SUV coupes are a new segment phenomenon and everyone is trying their hand at it. Polestar though has arguably made the most radical one with a striking design as there isn’t even a rear window offered on its newest car. Yes, the Polestar 4 electric vehicle gets a full-length glass roof that stretches beyond the rear occupants’ heads while a high-definition screen replaces the rear-view mirror.

“With Polestar 4 we have taken a fundamentally new approach to SUV coupé design. Rather than simply modifying an existing SUV, giving it a faster roofline and as a result, compromising elements like rear headroom and comfort, we have designed Polestar 4 from the ground up as a new breed of SUV coupé that celebrates rear occupant comfort and experience,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

The Polestar 4 neatly slots in between the Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 in terms of size and price while being a purpose-built SUV coupe.

The design is a mix of rakish lines juxtaposed against a sloping roofline while a low nose, retractable door handles, flush glazing with frameless windows, rear aero blades and the obligatory rear light bar create a handsome-looking SUV. The Polestar 4 borrows heavily from the Precept concept car and that includes removing the rear window.

Inside, the interior is doused in a minimalistic design theme that includes the use of sustainable materials with tailored knit textiles and ‘animal welfare-secured’ Nappa leather upholsteries. First shown in the Precept concept car, the tailored knit textile is made from 100% recycled polyester and is ‘made to fit’ meaning no offcuts. Inlay carpets in the interior are made using recycled PET and floor carpets are made using ECONYL, which includes reclaimed fishing nets.

Of course, a vast 15.4-inch landscape-oriented screen takes up most of the dashboard real estate and comes with Google built-in, including Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play. While other in-cabin toys include a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, an electrochromic glass roof, Nappa leather upholstery with ventilation, massage, and additional headrest speakers for the front seats.

Performance? Well, there’s plenty of it as the Polestar 4 is the brand’s fastest car yet. Dual and single-motor variants will be on offer, but it’s the long-range Dual motor configuration that catches our eye. Developing 544HP and 686Nm along with a 350-mile range estimate (WLTP), its numbers are impressive, to say the least. Charging is equally as impressive, at up to 200 kW DC and 22 kW AC charging for all versions, and the charge lid is motorised too. V2L capability is also there.

Production is planned to begin in Hangzhou Bay, China, in November 2023 while market introductions will begin next year with an Australian market launch by the middle of 2024 with an estimated price tag of about $90,000.
