A brief history of Polestar

Polestar is a new performance brand launched by Volvo Cars and has been producing high-performance versions of selected Volvo cars since 2013.

Polestar was founded in 1996 as a tuning company by racing driver Robert Dahlgren and Christian Dahl, who is still the CEO today.

In 2000, Polestar started to produce road cars under the name Polestar Performance AB, but this venture was not successful so it was closed down in 2006.

After several years of absence from the market, Polestar returned in 2013 with its first production car called Polestar 1. This electric hybrid coupe was produced in China by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co Ltd (owner of Volvo Cars). 

The next model, an all-electric sedan, called Polestar 2 is produced in Belgium using battery cells from LG Chemicals Inc., a South Korean company that supplies batteries for many electric vehicles including Tesla Inc.'s Model 3 sedan. It is now one of the most popular EVs in the UK.
