Should the Polestar 1 hybrid coupe have a drop-top twin?

As per the rules for producing cars in China, the plant will be run by a joint venture between Polestar and two Chinese companies within Zhejiang Geely.

The Polestar also unveiled the 600hp Polestar 1, the company's first auto, which is set to roll off the production line in mid-2019New Delhi: The performance brand of Volvo Group Polestar announced that its all future cars have a fully-electric powertrain.

Volvo in July announced that every vehicle it launches from 2019 will have an electric motor. Polestar 1 is a two-door, 2+2 seat Grand Tourer Coupé with an "Electric Performance Hybrid" drivetrain.

That being said, we wouldn't get our hopes up too high as far as something along the lines of a Polestar 1 cabrio taking into account the segment is shrinking and it probably wouldn't make much sense to come out with this body style.

Jerusalem joyful at Trump's crackdown on Iran
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei dismissed the US President's rejection of the deal as the "rants and whoppers" of a "brute". Israelis with an inside track on the Iran deal have reacted positively to Trump's latest position.

In addition to the hybrid powertrain 1 Polestar is equipped with a new continuously controlled electronic suspension hlins, which allows the driver to change suspension settings for better ride and control depending on road and weather conditions. Now under construction, the facility is due for completion in mid-2018.

Also in Polestar's near-term plans are the mid-size battery electric Polestar 2, which will be positioned to compete with the Tesla Model 3. There will be no Polestar dealers - and no Polestar cars in the corner of a Volvo showroom - but there will be Polestar retail "spaces". Polestar will also move away from today's traditional ownership model. A maximum of 500 cars will be built per year and all those will be offered on a subscription basis. Tesla sold 75,000 electric cars last year and, with the smaller Model 3 ramping up, is on track to reach 100,000 deliveries this year. The $756 million dollar investment will bolster the early phases of Polestar's product lineup and industrial footprint.

A Polestar subscription won't require a down payment, will include additional services and benefits such as rental access to vehicle accessories and alternative Polestar/Volvo models, and won't necessarily entail a trip to the dealership, with the availability of a purely Web-based sales experience.
