Polestar’s sporty convertible presented in concept form enjoyed huge success when it was shown a few days ago at Monterey Car Week. So much so that the 500 copies of the special “Polestar 6 LA Concept” series are now all reserved. The manufacturer said it will no longer take orders until the end of 2022.
The Polestar O2 Concept is the third project presented by the company in 2022. With lines vaguely reminiscent of vintage Volvos, it features a high-tech interior with a large vertical screen for the infotainment system, a good-sized two-spoke steering wheel, and a retractable roof, making it almost a Targa.
Based on a new reinforced aluminum platform, 800-volt technology borrowed from the Polestar 5 sports saloon that debuted at Goodwood, Volvo’s new car is capable of generating up to 884bhp, with a maximum torque of 900 Nm.

The advertised performances are respectable, with a 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed limited to 255 km/h.

The LA Concept Edition models will arrive with 21-inch wheels taken from the concept, the sky blue exterior paint, and a light leather interior.
“The great interest shown by our customers shows that an extraordinary electric roadster like the Polestar 6 is very relevant in the sports car sector. The combination of an open roof and an electric motor is clearly likely to appeal even the most diehard gas-engine enthusiasts,” said Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar.
The Polestar 6 will be one of many new electric vehicles that will join the brand’s lineup over the next few years. The Polestar 3, an all-electric SUV, will debut in October. At the beginning of 2023 we will see Polestar 4 coupé SUV arrive and the Polestar 5, based on the Precept concept, in 2024.
