Volvo EVs to fall under Polestar banner

Performance division gets EV refocus

There’s been a fairly big change announced at Volvo with the brand’s performance division, Polestar, set to be transformed into a sub-brand for Volvo electric cars.

The change will see the Volvo badge removed from Polestar cars.

In a statement released early this morning in Sweden, Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson, said the change will see Polestar ready some very exciting performance-orientated EVs.

“With Polestar, we are able to offer electrified cars to the world’s most demanding, progressive drivers in all market segments,”

“Polestar will be a credible competitor in the emerging global market for high-performance electrified cars.”

The statement also adding that Polestar will enjoy specific technological and engineering synergies with Volvo Cars and benefit from significant economies of scale as a result of its connection to Volvo.

These synergies will allow it to design, develop and build world beating electrified high-performance cars.

More announcements are expected ahead of the unveiling of the first Polestar EV models in coming months.

We will bring you further details in our new Polestar News section.
