Electric performance brand Polestar says its first vehicle, the Polestar 1, an electric performance hybrid GT Coupé is now available for pre-ordering in 18 countries around the globe, including one right-hand drive market, the United Kingdom.

The Polestar 1 GT Coupé produces 447kW (600 horsepower) and 1,000 Nm of torque, while offering 150 km of pure electric driving range – the longest of any hybrid car in the world says the manufacturer.

Pre-ordering is now available in: China, United States, Sweden, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Portugal, Poland, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Canada.

It marks the latest step in the brand’s journey, while the Polestar 1 continues its first public appearance at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show.

Polestar has introduced a new car configuration tool allows prospective customers to visualise their Polestar 1 before placing their pre-order.

“More than 7,000 people have expressed interest in owning a Polestar 1 since its reveal, so we are extremely encouraged by the passion shown for our product. We will now take the next steps towards delivering this car to our first customers,” says Polestar chief executive officer Thomas Ingenlath.

The pre-order process involves a fully-refundable deposit equivalent to $2500 Euro or $2500 U.S.D which serves as a placeholder in the queue for a Polestar 1.
