Polestar 1 review | Polestar's 600bhp PHEV coupe driven | Autocar

Sponsored Post advertising Canada Persia
Here's our Polestar 1 review. The Polestar 1 is an unusual car, this subsidiary of Geely/Volvo creating the car originally as the Volvo Concept Coupe.
But then Polestar was spawned as a brand in its own right, and Volvo's design director - and Autocar award winner - Thomas Ingenlath installed as its CEO. The Volvo Concept Coupe was rebranded and recreated as the Polestar 1 and becomes Polestar's first production car.
Built in China, the Polestar 1 will be followed by other Polestar models - imaginatively named 2 and so on - but while they will be pure EVs, the 1 is a plug-in hybrid.
It's bewilderingly complex: it has a 2.0-litre engine in the front which is both turbocharged and supercharged, and which is augmented by an electric motor. Then there are two more electric motors at the rear, to provide a total power output of more than 600bhp.
Join Autocar's special correspondent James Disdale as we take to the road in the production Polestar 1 for the first time, and find the full written car review at autocar.co.uk.
