New Polestar 4 coupe SUV lands in the UK with £60k price tag

Polestar has revealed UK pricing and specs for its coupe SUV, with the first deliveries expected in August

  • Most powerful Polestar yet
  • All-new coupe SUV with no rear window
  • To start from £59,990

Polestar is set to expand its range of electric cars in the UK with the introduction of the new Polestar 4. The Swedish car maker has announced pricing for the new coupe SUV, with entry-level models starting from £59,990, rising to £66,990 for the dual-motor variant.

Despite releasing its first car just five years ago, Polestar has established itself as a key player in the premium electric car market. The Polestar 4 follows in the footsteps of the exclusive 1 coupe, the popular 2 hatchback and the upcoming 3 SUV, and is poised to compete against EVs from other upmarket brands, such as the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron and the new electric Porsche Macan.

We had the opportunity to take a first-hand look at the Polestar 4 late last year, followed by a passenger ride. From what we’ve seen so far, it’s shaping up to be a promising contender in the ever-growing electric SUV segment.

What are the UK specs for the Polestar 4?

UK customers will initially be offered the Polestar 4 in two guises. Entry-level is the 4 Long Range single-motor model, starting at £59,990. Its 286bhp electric motor is powered by a 100kWh battery which can be recharged via 200kW rapid-charging, as well as 22kW AC charging. Its range stands at an official 376 miles.

Polestar will also offer the 4 Long Range with a dual-motor layout, costing from £66,990. The same 100kWh battery is used for this model, although it now powers a pair of electric motors providing four-wheel drive. The setup produces a healthy 536bhp, but its range suffers marginally compared to the single-motor model, with up to 360 miles possible.

What do you get inside the Polestar 4?

There’s an impressive level of standard equipment across both models, with Polestar’s Plus pack fitted to UK cars at no extra cost. Infotainment is handled by a 15.4-inch touchscreen, with integrated Google Maps and Assistant, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The driver gets a 10.2-inch digital display, too, and there’s a vast suite of safety and assistance features. A large panoramic roof brings natural light into the interior, but you’ll spot the lack of any rear window – Polestar has fitted a rear-mounted camera connected to a digital display in place of a traditional mirror.

Buyers can pay extra for the Pro package (£1,800) which brings 21-inch wheels and unique design details, and the Performance package (£4,000), which is exclusive to the dual-motor model and adds 22-inch wheels and a host of performance upgrades.

The Polestar 4 is available to order now, with the first models expected to reach the UK in August.
