Introduction

What Car? says...

The Polestar 1 takes the rulebook for high-performance GT cars and simply obliterates it. Rather than using a big eight or twelve-cylinder engine driving the rear or all four wheels, the 1 combines a high-output 2.0-litre petrol engine with a trio of electric motors to create a seriously rapid plug-in hybrid.

How rapid? Well, its total system output is a hefty 601bhp, enough to take this 2350kg brute from 0-62mph in just 4.2sec and on to a limited top speed of 155mph. Now, before you shout that the Porsche Panamera 4S E-Hybrid is faster still, it’s worth bearing in mind that the Polestar 1 is about more than just all-out pace.
