As of now, the company has not announced whether Polestar 1 will come to India or not.

The Polestar also unveiled the 600hp Polestar 1, the company's first vehicle, which is set to roll off the production line in mid-2019New Delhi: The performance brand of Volvo Group Polestar announced that its all future cars have a fully-electric powertrain.

"We want to be leaders in electrification", Volvo chief executive Hakan Samuelsson said at this week's launch event. Polestar expects that most customers would use the auto in electric mode only for most of the trips.

Also helping the Polestar 1 excel on twisty roads, the Öhlins Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension system fits an electronic valve to each Öhlins shock absorber, monitoring driver inputs and road conditions and making adjustments within two milliseconds to provide precisely tailored suspension performance.

The investment will be mostly used in establishing a Polestar manufacturing facility in Chengdu, China, radically shortening the time Polestar needs to launch a new model into the market among other things. The sporty hybrid GT, a major step toward Volvo Car Group's first all-electric car, shares its basic Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA) with the latest Volvo vehicles. It will be a mid-sized BEV, joining the competition around Tesla Model 3, and with consequently higher volumes than Polestar 1. It will be called as the Polestar 1 and the production is expected to start by mid-2019.

The firm hasn't revealed specifics about either model, although it said the mid-sized 2 BEV, now in the engineering phase, will "join the competition" around the Tesla Model 3. Polestar will also move away from today's traditional ownership model.

All future cars from Polestar will have a fully electric powertrain. The cars will be offered on a two- or three-year subscription basis; the monthly fee will include pickup and delivery servicing and the ability to rent alternative Volvo and Polestar vehicles.

Ordering and configuring your new Polestar will be dealt online but the company will also open a network of so-called "Polestar Spaces" around the world, which will be standalone facilities and not within the existing Volvo showrooms.
