New Polestar 1 could be sold for up to £134000

It will be available for order exclusively online on a two or three year zero-deposit monthly subscription basis, an all inclusive package to include pick-up and delivery servicing and the option to rent other models in the Volvo and Polestar range.

New hybrid vehicle built on the platform that is used in the 90 series Volvo.

But however appealing the Polestar 1 is, with its stunning looks, 600PS hybrid powertrain and clever suspension, there are big downsides. Polestar 1 boasts 600 horsepower with its hybrid engine - while in the rear, Polestar 1 adds a 218 horsepower dual-electrical motor. It also gets a new torque vectoring system that sends the required power to wheels on either side instead of braking the inner wheel while cornering.

Polestar will launch two more models after its 1 coupe in the next four years - a mid-sized Tesla Model 3 rival, due in 2019, followed by an SUV-style vehicle. In pure electric mode, the auto behaves like a rear-wheel-drive vehicle with a claimed range of 150 km. Polestar has reworked roughly 50 percent of the car's structure, however, optimizing it for a sharp, agile ride befitting of a GT performance flagship.

Her brother Rob Kardashian- who has yet to appear on this season of " KUWTK " - is also missing from the family photo. A source close to the family told Radar Online : " Khloe is pushing her man for a ring harder than ever before now".

China has said it wants electric and plug-in hybrid cars to make up at least a fifth of Chinese auto sales by 2025, spurring a raft of investment plans from global automakers in electric vehicles, particularly new joint ventures with Chinese firms. That model is planned as Polestar's highest-volume vehicle and will go into production later in 2019.

Next up for the brand is the Polestar 2.

Polestar has unveiled its first auto as a standalone brand. Polestar will also provide additional services including concierge and on-demand services for customers at an added charge. Polestar will build a network of brand-specific retail spaces for those that do want a physical auto browsing/buying experience. They will not be housed in existing Volvo dealerships. Polestar will also move away from today's traditional ownership model.
