The 2022 Polestar 3 is an American-made car for American people

Polestar announced today that its upcoming first all-electric performance SUV, the Polestar 3, will enter production in the US next year, while up until now the company built its cars in China.

“The Polestar 3 will be built in America for our American customers,” Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath remarked. “From now on, the USA is no longer an export market but a home market.”

The company’s new model will be produced in Volvo’s Ridgehill facility in South Carolina, alongside Volvo’s S60 and XC90 SUV. All Polestar vehicles built there will be for sale in the United States, to highlight Polestar’s commitment to the American retail market. 

And if you’re already wondering what the Polestar 3 will look like, head designer Max Missoni told Autocar that “it will carry some of the features and design cues that you’ve seen in the Precept.” But that’s all we know for now.
