Previously, the automaker Polestar came out with a concept for a vehicle called the Precept. Now, Polestar has announced that the Precept is going to be released as the Polestar 5, its all-new electric sedan. This was confirmed in a video the automaker released on the Precept’s design concept.
The video focused on the exterior of the car, which shows four doors and a fastback roofline tied together with a sleekness that is interrupted by aggressively raised lines on either side of the hood and reappear on the back of the car to give a point to both corners. The design in the video is said to be decently close to the production version of the vehicle, and, in a teaser image of the Polestar 5, we see that the outline of the car appears to have a fastback roofline, just as the concept shows. Some details appear to be changed in the image, however, including traditional doors instead of the coach doors that the Precept featured.
Polestar has also mentioned a new interface that is said to be more than what the Polestar 2 EV currently offers customers. The vehicle's platform will utilize advanced bonded aluminum promising weight savings and class-leading rigidity. Polestar 5 EV range has not yet been announced. For reference, Polestar 2 specs offer up to 270 miles of range with the Long Range Single Motor or 249 miles with a dual-motor configuration. If the Polestar 5 goes up against the Tesla Model S, it would need an EV range of around 348 to 375 miles.
