Polestar 6 feature

2026 Polestar 6 Plans Confirmed, Including 884HP Output

Polestar’s futuristic ’02 Roadster’ concept has officially been named the Polestar 6, with the Swedish electric automaker confirming its roadster concept will become a reality. We originally featured the concept when it was first unveiled to the public and were immediately drawn to its gorgeous design. Better still, the 02 concept was confirmed to come with a built-in drone for aerial photography, alongside a bonded aluminium unibody and mono-material interior, although we doubt the drone makes it to production on the USD$200,000 Polestar 6.

Here’s what we know so far about the Polestar 6.

The Volvo Geely owned performance brand was introduced to the world with the Polestar 1 hybrid sportscar, a ground-breaking vehicle that was both a nod to the past and a glimpse of the future with a 2.0-litre twin-charged engine that combined with a hybrid system to produce 609hp and 1000 Nm. Next came the Polestar 2, a Tesla Model 3 competitor that we recently had our hands on.

You’re probably assuming then that the next 4 models (3, 4, 5, and 6) in the range will grow in power and size. You’re correct. The Polestar 3 is said to be a direct competitor to the BMW iX and Model X with over 600km range, while the Polestar 4 is yet to be officially revealed. Polestar says the 4 will be targeting the Porsche Macan which will soon be built on a dedicated electric vehicle platform. The Polestar 5 and 6 share the same platform, with the latter being a sleek roadster unveiled today.

“With the overwhelming consumer and press response, we took the decision to put this stunning roadster into production and I am so excited to make it a reality,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “Polestar 6 is a perfect combination of powerful electric performance and the thrill of fresh air with the top down.”

The headline figures for the Polestar 6 are downright ludicrous. The car will feature the high-performance, 800-Volt electric architecture already confirmed for Polestar 5, boasting an output of up to 650 kW (884 hp) and 900 Nm from a dual motor powertrain, a targeted 0-100 km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.

While the Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed, Polestar USA has stated the price as USD$200,000 or roughly AUD$285,000 at the time of writing. If you factor in luxury car tax, expect to pay around AUD$345,000 (at the 2022-23 threshold). Those who can’t wait to get their hands on the Polestar can reserve a build slot for the 500 limited edition ‘LA Concept’ examples seen above for USD$25,000 (AUD$35,670) via Polestar’s website.

Further technical details and specification confirmations will be released as the production car becomes reality, leading up to the Polestar 6 expected to launch in 2026. Is this just another Tesla Cybertruck, or will we actually see these become reality? Time will tell.
