In a recent press release, Polestar stated that the first half of 2022 had seen some rather good financial results. Vehicle deliveries increased by 125%, and the company has a long list of customers who have placed orders.
It’s wonderful to see that Polestar 2 customers are becoming more and more zealous, says Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath . I have a lot of faith that when more ground-breaking automobiles are unveiled over the coming years, the great momentum we have witnessed this year in brand awareness and sales figures will intensify.
Polestar increased its global footprint from 19 to 25 markets during the first half of 2022 and opened close to 30 additional retail locations, indicating strong consumer demand for the brand. Due to the increased retail presence, there were more test drives, which is a sign that consumers are becoming more interested in the brand.
Sales are one thing, but interest and activity in new areas are quite another. The Swedish company, which had its Nasdaq New York debut in late June, has already shipped over 21,200 automobiles through the first half of 2019, up from 9,510 cars sent during the same period in 2018, an increase of about 125 percent. Polestar is therefore not just talking the talk. It’s producing outcomes.
In addition, Polestar wants us to know that since the beginning of 2022, total purchases around the world have climbed by over 350% as a result of strong customer demand, including orders from Hertz. This number is remarkable, but when we take into account the supply chain and delivery problems every carmaker is experiencing, getting orders is both a demand issue and partially a result of the inability to deliver cars. However, persuading customers who would normally drive off the lot to place an order demonstrates increasing interest.
With these figures, Polestar assures investors that its projection for 2022 is on track.
In October, Polestar will launch its electric performance SUV, the Polestar 3, in all markets. One of the most profitable and thriving segments of the car industry, especially in the United States, is the SUV market. Customers can anticipate being able to buy Polestar 3 in a few markets on the day of its debut.
Our growth trajectory will be accelerated by Polestar 3, which will stand out amid other SUV options. As we become even more international, it also symbolizes the development of our industrial presence into the United States. It is a crucial next step in our journey to sell 290,000 cars in 2025, which is ten times more than we did in 2021, according to Ingenlath.
A Swedish business called Polestar creates and manufactures electric automobiles. Polestar has its headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden, and its cars are currently being driven in Europe, North America, China, and the Asia-Pacific region. Polestar wants to sell its cars in 30 different markets by the year 2023. Polestar is a partnership between Volvo Cars and Geely Holding in China.
Two electric performance vehicles by Polestar have been made. A low-volume electric performance hybrid GT with a carbon fiber body, 609 horsepower, 1,000 Nm, and the greatest electric-only range of any hybrid vehicle in the world at the time, 124 km (WLTP), was constructed between 2019 and 2021 called the Polestar 1. The company’s first fully electric, high volume vehicle is the Polestar 2 electric performance fastback. Three different model variations of the Polestar 2 are available, each with a combination of long- and standard-range batteries up to 78 kWh and dual- and single-motor powertrains up to 300 kW/408 hp and 660 Nm.
