Polestar Breaks Ground On First Chinese Assembly Plant

Polestar Breaks Ground On First Chinese Assembly Plant”

The factory's construction is almost as interesting, though.

Polestar, the former Volvo performance arm that has heavy links to China through the brands" parent company Geely, is building the site to be the country's most "environmentally responsible' auto factory.

The factory is due for completion by mid-2018, and Polestar claims it will be the most environmentally-friendly auto production plant in China, with the Swedish brand targeting a "Gold" status in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) ratings. Apart from Polestar 2, there are also plans for Polestar 3, an SUV to compete with Tesla's Model X.

Motivation comes from a hybrid-electric powertrain with an internal combustion engine paired with an electric motor system, with a combined output of 442kW and 1000Nm. The maximum number of cars produced will be of 500 per year, although the plan is to raise the production with the creation of new models.

Not only will the new Chengdu facility build Polestars, it will include a customer experience center with product experts on hand and a customer test track. This follows the announcement of the new Polestar brand on the 17th October. 'We are building a production centre that is a reflection of our brand. A facility that is modern, progressive, technically advanced and environmentally responsible.

Polestar production plant from China will be a strong competitor for Tesla. The Polestar 1 is set to go on sale in 2019 and order books are now open. The latter did not have a very good year and it seems that more than ever other brands are proving to become future strong rivals.
