In addition to launching three models in the next three years, Swedish electric automaker Polestar also has bold plans for powertrains.
CEO Thomas Ingenlath said that could mean supplying an electric powertrain to other automakers.
In an investor presentation posted on its website last week, Polestar revealed that it is developing a 603-hp e-motor and an 800-volt bidirectional battery pack.
The "P10" rear motor puts out 450 kilowatts, besting the Porsche Taycan's 300-kW rear motor, Polestar noted. Combined with a front motor, the P10 delivers a max output of 650 kW, Polestar claimed.
"A top-of-the-line powertrain is simply part of our performance brand," Ingenlath told Automotive News last week. "There [isn't], at least not to my knowledge, any electric motor with that power density on the market yet. I'm not talking about super exotic vehicles, but about mass-produced cars."
Polestar also is developing a lightweight aluminum architecture for its Precept luxury sedan, expected to enter production in 2024.
