Its range of 150km on electric power alone gives it the longest-running electric range of any hybrid auto on the market, according to Volvo.

The subscription is "all-inclusive" with a single monthly payment that includes valet service for maintenance visits as well as the ability to rent alternative vehicles from within the Volvo and Polestar range as your circumstances dictate.
Polestar will also have its own new purpose-built production facility in China. This would be followed by Polestar 3, an all-electric SUV-style vehicle.
