Design & look

With the sleekness of a coupe and the bulk of an SUV, the Polestar 4 sure looks sharp. One of the most striking features is its lack of a rear window. Controversial, yes, but Polestar insists that by removing the rear window and using a roof-mounted camera linked to the rear-view mirror, it’s created more headroom in the rear seats while maintaining the SUV coupe’s sporty silhouette.

Those signature LED headlights are present, as are retractable flush door handles and a bold, muscular stance. Its pleasingly sizeable panoramic roof has UV- and noise-reducing laminated glass. Being part coupe, the Polestar 4’s overall silhouette is super aerodynamic and helps to reduce drag, contributing to its impressive efficiency and range.

Features and interior

Inside, the Polestar 4 offers a minimalist cabin focusing on premium materials, sustainability and craftsmanship. The interior features the new 3D-knit seat fabric, made from 100% recycled PET polyester and optional Nappa leather sourced from food industry waste. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, with ample headroom and legroom in the rear seats. The lack of physical buttons adds to the clean, modern look of the interior, with most controls accessible through the centrally mounted 15.4-inch touchscreen. This highly intuitive tablet is fixed in landscape orientation and runs on Android Automotive.          

Something of a novelty – but a rather cool one – is the interior illumination, which is inspired by the solar system. The illumination forms a light line that orbits around the cabin, setting the atmosphere through nine planetary themes and transporting you to outer space.


The Polestar 4 is a significant step forward for the brand in terms of performance compared to its predecessors. The Long range Single motor variant is powered by a 200kW electric motor, while the Long range Dual motor variant boasts a 400kW motor. 

Despite its weight disadvantage (2,355kg) compared to the Tesla Model Y, the Polestar 4 delivers impressive dynamics and acceleration. The Single motor RWD variant delivers 343Nm of torque, achieves a 0-100km/h time of 7.1 seconds, and boasts a WLTP driving range of 620km. The Dual motor AWD variant, on the other hand, offers a significant performance boost, with double the power delivering 686Nm of torque, propelling it from 0-100km/h in just 3.8 seconds.

On the road, the RWD model shows great handling and agility, while the AWD variant, especially with the Performance Pack, takes acceleration to the next level.

Safety and warranty

The Polestar 4 is still to receive an ANCAP rating, however, it comes with tonnes of safety features. The Pilot Pack, included as standard, offers semi-autonomous driving capabilities through the Pilot Assist system. This system assists with steering, acceleration and braking, reducing driver fatigue on long journeys. Advanced driver assistance systems include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and automatic emergency braking.

A comprehensive airbag system, including front, side and curtain airbags, further enhances safety for all passengers. And if you’re wondering about the lack of a rear window, the roof-mounted camera performs well, sending its visuals to a conventional mirror layout but with a high dynamic range and great nighttime visibility.

Polestar offers a competitive warranty package for the model. With a standard five-year warranty, owners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their vehicle is covered for defects in materials and workmanship. The warranty typically includes unlimited kilometres, allowing owners to drive without worrying about exceeding mileage limits.


With its bold design, innovative features and more than strong performance, the Polestar 4 certainly will stand out in the EV market. Its unique lack of a rear window adds to its distinctive appearance and creates more headroom in the rear seats.

Both Polestar 4 variants have way above-average ranges, so this car could be a great choice if you have frequent long-distance journeys or commutes. Driving is smooth with great handling, particularly in the RWD variant, which offers a balance of comfort and dynamism. Overall, the Polestar 4 has the potential to attract a new segment of customers to the brand and help Polestar regain its footing in the EV market.
