Ginny Says

“I'm a big fan of the Polestar 2 but the 3 really moves the game on in terms of design and desirability. Yes, eighty grand is a huge amount of money, but if you look at the cars that it will be competing against, that pricetag isn't as eye-watering as it first appears.”

Nicki Says

“As a mum of two, the Polestar 3 looks like the perfect package. I adore the design and all the clever details and I think that having a real-world range of over 300 miles is going to tempt Range Rover buyers to switch to electric. It looks like another great package from Polestar. ”

What is the range of the Polestar 3?
