Polestar 4 review

£59,935 - £72,235
Published: 30 Jun 2024


What should I be paying?

Polestar is a company fond of balled-up option packs, so pick wisely. Plus, Pilot, Pro and Performance are the pick of the Polestar Packs, and if you can find a more alliterative start to a sentence out there, you win.

Colours seem a little base, but there is a gold version that seems like it’ll be excellent fun for the first three months and then wear heavily. Generally though, they are quite well-equipped.

If it were down to the best car in the range, that’s actually the cheaper Long Range rear-wheel drive that starts at £59,990. Stick a couple of the more useful packs on it (Plus and Pro) and you’ll have a cracker. It also looks best in a lighter colour with the contrast black cladding, showing off that lack of rear window and at least giving you something to talk about at charging stops.

The Dual Motor starts from £66,990. Do you really need to go that fast?

When can I get one?

At the moment, it seems to be very hard to tie Polestar down to when it might actually be able to deliver a car or two. TG has heard of several people heading down another electric EV route, simply because Polestar has failed to be able to supply. Expect next year (2025) for the Polestar 4.

There are no deals as yet, but with the usual business knockdowns and current benefit-in-kind of two per cent, that could be useful. When the cars actually get here.
