Polestar 6 (2026): electric roadster with up to 884 hp

Presentation: O2 electric study goes into series production as Polestar 6 (update!)

With the O2 study, Polestar presented a fully electric hardtop roadster. Volvo’s electric brand is now announcing that it will launch the 2+2 seater: the first models are to be delivered in 2026!

For the market launch there will initially be 500 numbered copies as “Polestar 6 LA Concept edition” – exclusively equipped with paintwork in the blue color “Sky”, the light leather interior and the 21-inch wheels from the O2 concept car.

Appearance and drive: Roadster with panoramic hardtop instead of soft top

The design is clearly based on the Polestar Precept: two-part Thors Hammer headlights, a continuous strip of rear lights that continues down the sides in a square shape, no rear window and many corners and edges.

The hardtop convertible comes with 800 volt architecture, which the Polestar 5 also gets. Up to 884 hp are possible.

In addition, the P6 has the typical sports car proportions: flat and wide, with short overhangs and a compact passenger cell. Instead of a classic soft top, Polestar has opted for an unusual hardtop variant with a panoramic roof.

Because aerodynamics are particularly important in electric cars, there are air ducts that are integrated into the body and direct the airflow over the wheels and sides. At the same time, the shaped rear lights act like airblades, they are intended to reduce turbulence behind the car. As in the study, cameras will replace the side mirrors – whether this detail will go into series production remains to be seen.

Dual electric motor and up to 884 hp

Technically, the hardtop convertible will stand on a specially developed aluminum platform. Including 800 volt technology, which has already been announced for the Polestar 5.

Means: Two electric motors form the drive train, up to 650 kW (884 hp) and 900 Nm maximum torque should be possible. With this performance data, the roadster should crack the 100 km/h mark in around 3.2 seconds, and the top speed should be 250 km/h. Polestar has not yet commented on the battery, but they are aiming for a range of over 600 kilometers.

Interior: upright display and square steering wheel

The interior is also very similar to the Precept interior. There are hardly any buttons, but there is a 15-inch upright display. The software behind it should also be the next generation of the Android-based infotainment system that Polestar developed together with Google.

Recycled polyester for all interior soft materials and labeled aluminum make recycling easier.

Unlike the Precept, however, the O2 has a circular knob on the otherwise empty center console; presumably the infotainment system can be operated with it. Polestar has not yet given any information on the size of the narrow digital speedometer behind the steering wheel, which is flattened at the top and bottom, but it probably measures 12.5 inches, as in the Precept.

Sustainability: recycled polyester and labeled aluminum

As with the previous studies, sustainability is also an important issue for the Polestar O2. In this case recycling is in the foreground. That is why it was decided to produce as much as possible from one type of fabric. That would simplify the recycling of production cars. With the O2, all soft materials in the interior are made from recycled plastic.

A continuous rear light is emblazoned at the rear. The huge rear diffuser should ensure better aerodynamics.

The different aluminum alloys of the chassis have been marked so that they can be reused. With this, Polestar wants to avoid so-called downcycling, i.e. the combination of different types of aluminum into a lower-quality product and the resulting post-production of new, high-quality aluminum.

Equipment: Study with autonomous camera drone behind the rear seats

Incidentally, the O2 study also has a small gimmick behind the rear seats: an autonomous camera drone. It can start while driving and follow the car up to a speed of 90 km/h. She records a short film of the roadster driving.

The side line presents itself with a long wheelbase and short overhangs, the rims were taken from the Concept O2.

In the next three years, Polestar wants to launch one new model per year, starting with the Polestar 3. Now we know that the Polestar O2 will also make it into the series – in 2026 as the Polestar 6.
