The Polestar 3 made its debut at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. However, Polestar did not stop there; the prototypes were promptly flown to the United Arab Emirates to undergo rigorous testing in sweltering conditions.

The goal? To optimize the efficacy of the SUV’s climate system in some of the world’s hottest environments. According to Polestar’s CEO, Thomas Ingenlath, this is just one of several extreme weather tests the vehicle will undertake prior to its release. The production will begin in the first quarter of 2024, according to Ingenlath.
Even though the production timeline may seem distant, the Polestar 3 is already making its presence felt in retail spaces around the world. The public can view three prototype display cars in 27 various markets in an effort to generate interest and anticipation. The release of test drive models is anticipated in 2024.
The price on the American market begins at $85,300 and incorporates a Long-range Dual motor. A Performance bundle is additionally available for an added $6,000 price. The price does not include prospective incentives, such as the $7,500 federal tax credit, for which the SUV should qualify. Those eager to reserve a Polestar 3 can do so online with a $1,000 deposit that is entirely refundable. The second quarter of 2024 is anticipated to mark the beginning of Polestar 3 deliveries in the United States, making it probable that the vehicle will be available as a 2025 model.
