The much-anticipated Polestar 4 will premiere on April 18 at the Shanghai Auto Show in China as revealed by the latest teaser. The EV will slot between the recently updated Polestar 2 sedan and the brand-new Polestar 3 SUV, as the automaker’s first entry in the coupe-SUV segment.
The model was originally announced back in 2021, and has been teased a few times since. As highlighted by Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, the Polestar 4 is not simply a modified version of the Polestar 3, as they “reconsidered the entire design to create a new breed of SUV coupe”. Indeed, the teasers show a smaller body with a more aerodynamic silhouette that is closer to the ground than your average high-riding vehicle.
The new teaser focuses on the sharp-looking headlight of the Polestar 4, alongside a portion of its sculpted bonnet. Previous shots revealed the full-width LED taillights and the sloping roofline of the EV that will rival the upcoming Porsche Macan EV.
The Polestar 4 is expected to share its Geely-sourced underpinnings with the Zeekr 001. Thus, it will likely be offered in RWD and AWD flavors with an electric range exceeding the 379 miles (610 km) of the larger and bulkier Polestar 3. The automaker suggests that the new model will be “the fastest Polestar production car to date”, even though that is probably a title that is going to keep until the Polestar 5 sportscar arrives next year with 872 hp (650 kW / 883 PS).
We will learn everything about the Polestar 4 when it is displayed in Shanghai next week. Until then, check out all of the official teasers of the coupe-SUV to date.
