New Polestar 4 electric vehicle has just gone on sale in Australia and will hit our roads in August

The Polestar 4 electric car – which combines the look of a coupe and the space of an SUV – has gone on sale in Australia with the first orders expected to hit the road by August.

Starting at $81,500, the Polestar 4 is the fastest production the car the company has produced and can go 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds.

Both long range models have a 100kWh battery with the long range dual motor offering a range of 580km while the long range single motor takes the range up to 610km.

“The introduction of Polestar 4 into all our markets through the course of 2024 is key to our success, adding this third model to our line-up. Polestar 4 tackles the premium performance class in the D-SUV segment.

Polestar 4’s innovative interpretation of an SUV coupé offers great interior space and a stunning appearance,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

The Polestar 4 – which in terms of size price sits between Polestar 2 and 3 – has a striking design with dual blade front headlights, retractable door handles and an aerodynamic shape.

Where did the rear window go?

Inside is a 15.4-inch landscape screen where you can control the infotainment system powered by the Android Automotive OS which includes Google Maps, Google Assistant, Android Auto and wireless CarPlay.

There is a 10.2-inch driver cluster that is mounted ahead of the steering column which displays speed, battery and range information.

Also onboard is a Harman Kardon audio system with 12 speakers and a 1400-Watt channel-hybrid amplifier.

The EV also has a full-length glass roof that stretches back past the rear passengers’ heads.

The rear passengers also have their own media and climate control screen.

But one thing missing from the Polestar 4 is the rear window.

But it still has a rear-view mirror which is actually a high-definition screen that shows the driver a live real-time feed from a roof mounted camera which has a wide field of view that even lets you check your blind spots.

“With Polestar Precept we previewed a stunning new occupant experience by removing the rear window and pushing the rear header, which plays an integral safety role, further back,” says Maximilian Missoni, Head of Design at Polestar.

“This means that now, rear occupants can have a unique experience in our SUV coupé.”
