New 2024 Polestar 4: Price, specs and release date

The new Polestar 4 has officially gone on sale in the UK for premium car buyers seeking an exciting new electric SUV coupe.

The new Polestar 4 is bigger than the existing Polestar 2, and smaller than the upcoming new Polestar 3 luxury electric SUV. Its arrival is a key landmark for the startup new electric car company.

The new Polestar 4 is the firm’s fastest production car to date, and the “innovative interpretation” of an SUV coupe is set to offer both “great interior space and a stunning appearance,” said the firm’s CEO Thomas Ingenlath.

The new Polestar 4 will go head-to-head with the new electric Porsche Macan, plus existing sporty SUV coupes such as the acclaimed Kia EV6 GT and Ford Mustang Mach-e GT.

The upcoming new Audi Q6 e-tron is also set to provide stern competition to the new Polestar 4.

New 2024 Polestar 4: exterior and interior

The new Polestar 4 brings ideas first seen in the Polestar Precent concept car to life. At the front, it has a modern look with curvaceous wings, into which are set cleverly-separated dual-blade LED headlights. These feature the unique Polestar light signature.

From the side, the new Polestar 4 has a low-slung appearance for what is a 4840mm long, 1544mm wide premium SUV coupe. The striking low nose, flush side glass and smooth airflow optimisation give it a wind-cheating profile that will help boost electric range. Meanwhile, alloy wheels ranging from 20-inches to 22-inches give it a sporty appearance.

The most controversial exterior feature comes at the back of the new Polestar 4 – where the traditional glass rear window has been eliminated. Instead, the full-length glass roof stretches beyond the rear seat passenger’s heads, where it meets the flush-fit hatchback bootlid.

The new Polestar 4’s driver sees from behind via a screen that shows a real-time feed from a roof-mounted rear camera. The designers say removing the rear window has “created a truly unique interior ambience”.

Those in the rear of the new Polestar 4 also have reclining rear seats, plus their own media and climate control screen mounted between the front seats. Meanwhile, the new Polestar 4 has a practical 526-litre boot that extends to 1530 litres with the rear seats folded. There is also a 15-litre front boot, or ‘frunk’.

Up front, the new Polestar 4 uses the latest Android Automotive OS infotainment system, running a super-advanced Snapdragon Cockpit Platform. The system is fast, customisable and will boast endless over-the-air updates.

The new Polestar 4 has a 15.4-inch landscape-oriented touchscreen, and comes with Google built-in – including Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play. Wireless Apple CarPlay is standard.

The new Polestar 4’s driver also has a 10.2-inch display, pls a 14.7-inch head-up display. An ingenious ‘snow mode’ sees the text colour change from white to yellow in snowy environments, to improve visibility.

The new Polestar 4 has a standard Harman Kardon premium audio system, with 12 speakers and a 1400-Watt amplifier. Choose the optional Nappa Pack, and dual headrest speakers in the front seats are added.

New 2024 Polestar 4: electric motor and battery

The new Polestar 4 is available in single- and dual-motor versions. Both electric SUVs have a 100kWh battery with up to 200kW DC rapid charging ability. An energy-saving heat pump is also standard.

The new Polestar 4 Long Range Single Motor drives the rear wheels and produces 272PS. 0-62mph performance takes 7.1 seconds and it has an impressive range of up to 379 miles.

The potent new Polestar 4 Long Range Dual Motor has two motors for all-wheel drive grip. They produce a total of 536PS, for rapid 0-62mph performance in just 3.8 seconds. Even this new Polestar 4 version has a range of up to 360 miles.

The new Polestar 4 is based on the latest Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA) from parent company Geely. High-performance Dual Motor versions will have semi-active suspension, giving an additional layer of adjustment between comfort and performance dynamics.

The new Polestar 4 will be very safe, too – helped by the brand’s strong connection to sister company Volvo. As standard, it has a total of 12 cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors and a radar, as part of the SuperVision Advanced Driver Assistance System from tech giant Mobileye.

Polestar 2 Review 2023: driving

Find a used Polestar 2 for sale

The new Polestar 4 is a premium electric SUV. If you want something more affordable, a used Polestar 2 crossover is a great choice. It's smaller, but still executive in feel, and is a formidable rival to a used Tesla Model 3. You can get 2021 cars with the 64kWh Standard Range battery for well under £25,000, which is tempting for such a distinctive and sporty machine. If you prefer the extra range of the 78kWh Long Range battery, these start from upwards of £30,000. It's also worth looking out for models with the Performance Pack – these are a thrilling drive indeed. 

Looking for more new car news?

The new Polestar 4 follows hot on the heels of the new Porsche Macan, which is a sporty all-electric new premium SUV. Meanwhile, the new Volkswagen Passat is now here for those seeking something a bit more traditional. We have recently revealed everything you need to know about the new 2024 Renault 5 and 2025 Renault 4. We’ve also covered the exciting new Kia EV5, and the new electric Volvo EX90 luxury SUV – and for those not ready to go electric, we’ve revealed all the fast facts about the new BMW M2 coupe.

Every new Polestar has a higher number than the previous one. The numbers therefore don’t refer to the car’s position in the model hierarchy. Size-wise, the new Polestar 4 is positioned between the already-available Polestar 2 and new Polestar 3, both in terms of size and prize.

The new Polestar 4 doesn’t have a rear window. To see out the back, the driver has a rear-view ‘mirror’ that is instead a live display from a camera positioned in the rear spoiler.

The new Polestar 4 is an electric SUV-coupe, designed to compete with the new electric Porsche Macan, Ford Mustang Mach-e GT and Kia EV6 GT.
