Polestar 4

Polestar’s all-electric lineup is quickly growing with new additions, which include the swanky Polestar 4. The all-electric SUV with coupe styling is set to go on sale in April with a starting MSRP of $54,900 (prices don’t include destination) for the base Long Range Single Motor model and goes up to $72,900 for the Long Range Dual Motor with Plus and Performance Pack model.

These figures are surprising since Polestar originally claimed that the Polestar 4 could start around $60,000 last year. This seems to be a trend with Polestar. The automaker provides a higher estimated price tag for its electric vehicles and then comes out with lower official pricing. The automaker did something similar with the 2025 Polestar 3, which will have a starting MSRP of $73,400 – $10,000 less than its original $83,900 figure.

The base Polestar 4 Long Range Single Motor trim comes with a single electric motor on the rear wheels that makes 272 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. The trim comes with rear-wheel drive and a 102-kWh battery pack that brings up to 300 miles of range. The Polestar 4 is available with dual electric motors for up to 544 hp and 506 lb-ft of torque. Range with dual-motor models drops to 270 miles.

With a starting price tag of $54,900, the Polestar 4 will compete against Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback ($58,200), Cadillac Lyriq ($57,195), Chevrolet Blazer EV ($48,800), Ford Mustang Mach-e ($38,895), Genesis Electrified GV70 ($66,450), Genesis GV60 ($52,000), Kia EV9 ($54,900), Lexus RZ ($54,000), and Mercedes-Benz EQB ($52,750).

The Polestar 4 isn’t expected to be eligible for any portion of the federal EV tax credit. Polestar will initially manufacture the Polestar 4 in Hangzhou Bay, China, but will move production of the electric SUV to Renault Korea Motors’ (RKM) plant in Busan, South Korea. The current set of rules for the federal tax credit requires automakers to manufacture electric cars in North America and utilize critical minerals and battery components that be extracted or processed in the U.S. or a country that has a free trade agreement with the U.S. and has battery components that are manufactured or assembled in the U.S. or a country with a free trade agreement with the U.S.
