Polestar 1 Set For Public Debut At The Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Polestar 1 is set to make its first dynamic appearance at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed from 12-15 July. Festivalgoers will see prototype 004 of the two-door Electric Performance Hybrid charge up the famous hill climb, set in the grounds of Goodwood House in West Sussex, England.

The Goodwood debut is part of Volvo's continued global launch of the Polestar brand and the Polestar 1. Goodwood gives the public to get a closer look at the design and performance of the car as it continues its real-world performance, chassis and suspension-testing programme.

Two production-specification Polestar 1 cars will be on display, customer deliveries will begin in mid-2019.

Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer of Polestar, comments: “I’m thrilled that we’re going to be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet so many people who share our passion for Polestar and the future of the brand.”

Following the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Polestar 1 will make its North American debut at Monterey Car Week in California from 23-26 August.
