New cars from Polestar get "Porsche" technology

It may well be that things are going badly for the stock. But Polestar's upcoming model program is still worth keeping an eye on.

Things move fast in the world of cars. So, in order not to be overtaken within by the competitors, both Polestar and Volvo will equip their electric cars with a charging technology that Porsche was among the first to use.

It is expected that the Polestar 3 and 4, when presented in the coming months, will be launched with 800-volt technology. So with battery packs that can charge almost absurdly fast.

At least when compared to what electric cars can generally do – or rather cannot do – today.

According to Polestar, it will take 30 minutes to charge the 111 kWh battery in the Polestar 3 from 10 to 30 percent. The same applies to the Polestar 4 sister car.

However, it is still slower than Porsche can do. The new Macan, which due to EU regulations is only launched as an electric car in our wide range, completes the same discipline in 21 minutes.

How important it is to be able to charge at such speeds in the real world is debatable. Not all car brands are literally jumping on the bandwagon either.

The BMW i5, the first bid for an all-electric 5-Series, does not have 800-volt charging technology. Nor does lillesoster i4. Or, for that matter, Mercedes in the EQE model.

Due to family ties to Porsche, Audi in return has the technology in stock. Back at Polestar, it is intended that the cars will eventually also be equipped with new battery types.

This could further reduce the charging time. And quite significantly actually. According to the Israeli battery manufacturer StoreDot, you can get down to enough power for a 160-kilometre journey in 11 minutes.

Polestar is expected to lift more of the veil when the first car – Polestar 3 – is officially presented to the public on 10 June. Polestar 4 follows the following month.
