Currently, the 2021 Polestar lineup includes two electric performance cars.
The 2021 Polestar 2 is a custom- designed, electric performance fastback vehicle following on the commercial success of the Polestar 1. It is the company’s first fully electric car, introduced in 2020 with an all-wheel-drive electric powertrain and a range of 260 miles. Critically acclaimed across the globe, the Polestar 2 is the first vehicle in the world to feature an infotainment system developed by Google, which enables seamless voice commands and hassle-free navigation. With instant torque, the features and comfort levels of a luxury vehicle, and a mid-level price range make Polestar 2 the EV every family will want in their driveway.
Polestar 1 is a hybrid GT with world-class engineering designed to go fast. Alongside this efficiency, the carbon-fiber bodied coupe delivers incredible performance figures of 619hp and 738 lb/ft of torque, making the car all EV for daily driving and a performance sportscar when desired.
Coming in 2022, the Polestar 3 will be an electric performance SUV.
Courtesy’s CEO, Scott Gruwell, said, “Anyone seeking to own an electric vehicle with a unique, stylish design for the 21st century will want to own a Polestar. As a dealer we are committed to Polestar, it’s a dynamic electric technology with an amazing international brand, where its only mission is electric. We will extend our Courtesy Way in every sales and service experience for our car owners throughout the Valley, just as we have since 1955.”
Courtesy’s Chief Operations Officer, Jason Church, will be working with a number of area businesses to amplify Polestar’s international recognition throughout the Western United States. Church launched Courtesy Volvo Cars of Scottsdale in 2017 to a record level of success over the last 3 ½ years with Volvo, and is now poised to move Courtesy into a fully dedicated electric location right in Scottsdale that will match the competition of Tesla.
