The final 500-unit run of Polestar's debut model will include an interesting twist.
The Volvo Cars subsidiary will offer 25 special edition "gold" variants of its Polestar 1 performance plug-in hybrid.
Each will have a matte gold exterior paint job with matching calipers. The interior features gold stitching throughout.
The 25 special edition cars will start at 155,000 euros in Europe and $155,000 in the U.S., a spokesman said. That matches the prices Polestar has charged for the car since it launched.
When the 3-year-old brand announced the Polestar 1 it said the halo model would be limited to 500 units a year for three years -- 1,500 cars in total, starting in 2019.
"It’s hard to believe that our beautiful halo car comes to the end of its production life later this year," Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a release. "We pushed boundaries with this car, not only in terms of engineering but also in its design and execution. Polestar 1 set the tone for our brand and its genes are evident in Polestar 2 -- as they will be in our future cars to come."
The Polestar 1's 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged engine combined with a 34-kilowatt-hour battery offers combined power output of 600 hp and 1,000 newton meters (738 pounds-feet) of torque. The model also has an electric-only range of 124 km (77 miles) under the WLTP test cycle.
"This car was not designed to fit into a box," Ingenlath said. "We didn’t design it to compete with other cars, and neither did we design it to suit a specific target customer. Polestar 1 was about pushing our own boundaries, exploring a new era for Polestar and launching the brand with a strong statement."
