New Rear-Wheel Drive Entry Model for Polestar 3 SUV

The Polestar 3 SUV has just expanded its lineup with a new entry-level rear-wheel drive version, promising more range at an attractive price point.

The entry-level Polestar 3 Long Range Single Motor model is now available for purchase at £69,900. This new addition joins the existing Long Range Dual Motor and Performance Pack models, priced at £75,900 and £81,500 respectively, which have already begun their global deliveries.

Manufactured in both China and the USA, the Polestar 3 Long Range Single Motor variant is equipped with the same 111kWh battery pack as its Dual Motor counterpart. This larger battery enables an impressive 403 miles WLTP range between charges, surpassing the 379 miles offered by the Dual Motor model.

In addition, this new entry-level version provides a consistent 250kW peak charging capacity, allowing for a rapid 30-minute 10-80% DC charge.

The 295hp motor delivers a hefty 490Nm of torque, facilitating an acceleration from 0-62mph within 7.8 seconds. Like the rest of the Polestar 3 range, the Long Range Single Motor model features the reliable Brembo braking system and incorporates a passive damper system with Hydraulic Rebound Stops and Frequency Selective Damping, mimicking the driving experience of its dual-motor counterpart.

Buyers can expect the same level of luxury, technology, and design in the Long Range Single Motor model as in the rest of the Polestar 3 lineup. Orders for this new variant are now being accepted.

Polestar’s CEO, Thomas Ingenlath, expressed his excitement about the release, stating, “With the Long Range Single Motor Polestar 3, we offer consumers a new entry-point for our flagship electric SUV. The rear-wheel drive configuration complements our performance-driven driving dynamics, setting the car apart in the luxury SUV market.”

Moreover, Polestar has rolled out MY25 updates across the Polestar 3 series, introducing a streamlined option and package structure for enhanced personalisation. Customers now have the freedom to choose from six exterior colours, five interior trims, and four wheel options, including the newly available 21-inch alloy wheel featured in the Pro Pack.

Notably, the Pilot Pack with LiDAR technology from Luminar is now available for order on the Polestar 3 Long Range Single Motor model, in line with the MY25 updates.
