Polestar 1 now available for pre-order in 18 countries”

Final pricing hasn't been revealed for the Swedish performance machine, but Polestar has confirmed that the auto will only be available on subscription, requiring monthly payments. According to the Swedish brand, more than 7,000 people registered their interest since the reveal of the Polestar 1 last fall.

The pre-order process involves a fully-refundable €2,500 ($2,500; 20,000RMB) deposit, which serves as a placeholder in the queue for a Polestar 1.

Previously, interested parties could only signal their intention to purchase a Polestar 1 by registering their details on Polestar's website.

If you want to get one, it would be best to put your deposit down now, since Polestar only plans to build 500 Polestar 1 models a year.

The hand-built plug-in hybrid is available for pre-order in 18 countries, including the US, China, much of Western Europe and the UK.

The manufacturer has also made available a configurator for the Polestar 1 in the following regions: China, United States, Sweden, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Portugal, Poland, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Canada. Although it has been mooted that the initial production run of 1,500 cars could be significantly increased to meet demand. Basically, your only additional cost will be fuel.

The 1 is also the first vehicle be equipped with Ohlins' Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension, whereby each damper is fitted with an electronic valve to constantly monitor both the driver's inputs and the road surface, appropriately adapting the car's dynamics to suit the situation in just two milliseconds.

Polestar started out life as an independent race team competing with Volvo cars.

This is the first auto to come from the Volvo-owned brand, which was revealed as a spin-off in 2017.
