Polestar 1 Gets an EPA-Rated 52 Miles of Electric-Only Range

  • the polestar 1 returned 52 miles of electric-only range and 58 mpge in epa testing.
  • the plug-in hybrid is equipped with a 34.0-kwh battery, a sizable capacity for a plug-in.
  • deliveries for the polestar 1 are slated to begin this year.

    the epa has released its efficiency numbers for the polestar 1, rating it at 52 miles of electric-only range and 58 mpge. this comes in under polestar's claimed electric-only range of 60 miles and is lower than the numbers for other plug-ins with battery capacities comparable to the polestar 1’s 34.0-kwh capacity. using only gasoline, the polestar 1 registered a combined 26 mpg on the epa's ratings.

    nonetheless, with a starting price of $156,500 and a battery of that size, there aren’t very many other plug-ins vying for the same market the polestar 1 is targeting. the bmw 530e is priced at $58,195 and offers 21 miles of electric-only driving range with a 12.0-kwh battery. and the mercedes-benz s560e, costing $110,745, has 19 miles of electric-only range with a 13.5-kwh battery. competitors such as the acura nsx and the lexus lc hybrid aren’t offered with plug-in powertrains.

    the polestar 1’s powertrain features a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that churns out 314 horsepower and powers the front wheels. in the back, the coupe is equipped with two electric-only motors, each producing 114 horsepower. all power sources considered, the polestar 1 puts out an impressive 619 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque.
