- polestar has shared a photo of a prototype of the upcoming production version of the precept concept.
- it appears to be a large, sleek flagship sedan model with a near-identical body shape as the concept.
- polestar says it will begin production before 2025.
polestar is keen to demonstrate that its precept concept car from last year is more than just a design study. the ev brand already confirmed that it will produce the sleek sedan for real, and now it's sharing an image of a precept prototype as it undergoes engineering development. the company says the production version will come to fruition before 2025, when it will join existing models such as the polestar 2 and the upcoming polestar 3.
from this photo, we can see that the production model has a nearly identical body as the concept. it's a long and low four-door that invites comparisons to the tesla model s, porsche taycan, and mercedes-benz eqs. as such, it will likely carry a six-figure price point to match its status as polestar's luxury flagship.
the company hasn't shared any technical information about the precept, but we anticipate it will have an all-wheel-drive dual-motor powertrain with more grunt than the polestar 2's 402-horsepower setup. due to its larger size, a bigger battery pack is also a sure bet to live up to constantly evolving expectations for longer and longer driving range.
we should hear more about the precept in coming months as polestar shares more about its specs, production timeline, and design details.
