Polestar 1 review – is it really worth £140K?


This is the Polestar 1! It’s been a long-time coming, but Mat’s finally got his hands on the first car produced by Volvo’s performance division since they’ve gone it alone!

When it comes to the looks, there’s no denying that the Polestar 1 is a gorgeous set of wheels. Not only that, but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment if you invest in one of these, as it’s a plug-in hybrid that can drive for 77 miles on electric power alone – the most of any PHEV available today!

But just because it’s a hybrid doesn’t mean it’s down on power, as under the bonnet you’ll find a 2-litre supercharged engine which, along with two electric motors, can deliver 609hp and an amazing 1000Nm!

Sadly, there’s one downside… It costs £139,000!!! So, is it worth it? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!
