Polestar 5 EV, Due in 2025, Revealed in Final FormPolestar
  • Polestar revealed the production version of the Polestar 5 at a recent event.

  • It looks much like the Precept concept but now has production-ready details.

  • The new EV will start production in 2025.

It started life as the Polestar Precept concept, but it now appears the upcoming Polestar 5 is getting ready for the road in a real way. At its recent Polestar Day event, Volvo's EV spinoff showed a totally undisguised, production version of the Polestar 5 replete with details such as side mirrors, more realistic-looking headlights and taillights, and reasonably sized wheels and tires.

Like the recently revealed Polestar 4, the 5 appears to not have a rear window. While this might sound like a nightmare for visibility, Polestar assures us that it will overcompensate with various cameras, sensors, and a digital rearview mirror. We're curious to see how it plays out in the real world once we get a chance to drive these new windowless Polestar models.

Based on what Polestar previously divulged about the 5, we expect this range-topping model to be a sporty and powerful competitor to the Porsche Taycan. Polestar promises a dual-motor setup with 884 horsepower and a 103.0-kWh battery pack that should provide at least 300 miles of range. We'll have to wait a bit longer for more detailed specifications on the Polestar 5, and we have also yet to see the final interior configuration.


Polestar says it will start production of the 5 sometime in 2025, and we expect it to carry a starting price of at least $100,000.
