Polestar has announced that construction of its new state-of-the-art Polestar Production Centre has started in Chengdu, China, where the company’s first model, the Polestar 1, will be produced. This follows the announcement of the new Polestar brand on the 17th October, and continues the momentum built from the launch.

The Polestar Production Centre is due for completion by mid-2018 to be ready to start tooling installation and pre-production testing – an aggressive and challenging nine-month construction plan.

The Polestar Production Centre, designed together with Snøhetta from Norway, will be the most environmentally-responsible car factory in China, and one of the most efficient in the world, with a target of Gold status in the globally-recognised LEED ratings (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).



The Polestar Production Centre will build the Polestar 1, a Grand Touring Coupé with a 600-hp Electric Performance Hybrid powertrain that also offers 150kms of pure electric range - the longest pure electric distance of any hybrid car in the world. Polestar is currently targeting to build a maximum of 500 units per year.

We are building a Production Centre that is a reflection of our brand. A facility that is modern, progressive, technically advanced and environmentally responsible. The Polestar Production Centre will be an embodiment of the Polestar brand.”
