The Polestar 6 will get many of the same cool high-performance features as the Polestar 5. That will include the bespoke bonded aluminum platform and the same 800-volt electric architecture. Polestar says its EV powertrain will be capable of up to 884 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, permitting the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph.

Polestar did not mention whether the Polestar 6 would have a built-in cinematic drone to capture sub-55 mph action like the concept car did.
