Hot, Volvo-based Polestar coupe to be revealed on 17 October

Hot, Volvo-based Polestar coupe to be revealed on 17 October”

Volvo announced that it would be making Polestar, it's production vehicle arm, into a standalone brand. The date for the launch is set for this month, on October 17.

As a reminder, this won't be a Volvo Polestar - the firm's performance arm is becoming a standalone concern, with its own separate branding and even its own unique vehicle designs.

From our early glimpse, the coupe appears to be heavily inspired by the glamorous Volvo Concept Coupe that was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show.

Given the teaser image, the auto is likely to be based on Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture, which underpins the XC90, S90, and V90 crossovers, among other vehicles.

All we got in July was the appearance of the new Polestar badge and the promise the new cars would be Performance electrified cars and not just titivated Volvos.

Talking about the design of the new Polestar EV, the company has not revealed any more details. If so, it's also possible that the auto may be built on Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture. It could have the output of more than 591 bhp.

It's unclear right now whether the Polestar debutant will be a concept or an actual production model. Only time will tell.
