Polestar said materials for the interior were selected based on their sustainability credentials and include animal-welfare-certified leather and fully traceable wool upholstery.
As it did with the 2, Polestar says it has committed to producing a complete life-cycle assessment of the 3 when production begins, showing how much CO2 is produced in the car’s build and use, and said it’s committed to investigating ways to reduce its carbon footprint.
The 3’s infotainment system is powered by the new Snapdragon Cockpit Platform. There’s a 14.5in central touchscreen that runs a development of Polestar’s Android-based operating system, which was co-developed with Google and allows for over-the-air updates.
All versions of the 3 feature 21in alloy wheels, a panoramic glass roof, LED lighting and retractable door handles. The Plus Pack and Pilot Pack (including features such as a 25-speaker audio system, a head-up display and parking assistance) will be included on all models sold in the first year of production.
The 3 is available to order now, with prices starting at £79,900 and deliveries due to begin in late 2023.
The Performance Pack, which also includes performance-based tweaks to the air suspension and unique 22in alloys, comes in with an additional £5600.
