Thinking about ordering the concept-like Polestar 6 LA Concept edition electric convertible? Unfortunately you’re too late.
Just a week after the production version of the Polestar O2 concept was announced at the 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event in California, the Chinese-Swedish automaker has confirmed all 500 build slots for the Polestar 6 LA Concept edition have been reserved online.
A Polestar Australia spokesperson has confirmed the Polestar 6 LA Concept edition is coming Down Under, although it’s not clear exactly how many are headed our way.
Even if you did get in early and reserve a spot for the exclusive Polestar 6 LA Concept edition, you’ll need to wait until 2026 for it to be produced though.
Polestar has also announced due to the strong demand for the Polestar 6 LA Concept edition it’s planning to open reservations for “regular versions” of the Polestar 6 later in 2022.
Polestar Australia has confirmed Australian customers will be able to reserve the regular Polestar 6 once the orders open.
These regular versions of the Polestar 6 all-electric convertible will be produced after the initial 500 LA Concept edition cars have been built.
As previously reported, the Polestar 6 LA Concept edition is an exclusive initial version of the all-electric Polestar 6 convertible that’s expected to launch in 2026.
The LA Concept edition will feature Sky blue exterior paint, a light leather interior, and unique wheels lifted from the O2 Concept, which was revealed in March.
Keen buyers were able to reserve a build slot for US$25,000 (~$A35,500), and the car is expected to cost around US$200,000 ($A285,000) when it launches.
Under the skin, the 6 will be built on Polestar’s upcoming bonded aluminium architecture. It’ll feature the 800V architecture being developed for the Polestar 5 grand tourer, and is expected to pack 650kW of power and 900Nm of torque.
Polestar is targeting a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds, and flat out you’ll be doing 250km/h.
Inside, the car shown in the press imagery features a vertically-oriented touchscreen that shares plenty with that of the current Polestar 2.
Polestar hasn’t confirmed much about the cabin, but the O2 concept features (+2) rear seats. Freeing up space for those seats is the roof, which is a removable hardtop instead of a heavier and more complicated soft top.
The recently-floated Polestar has plenty of new products on the way before the 6.
Polestar says it wants to produce a truly climate-neutral car by 2030.
