SWEDISH electric performance car company Polestar has confirmed it plans to put its roadster concept car into production.

The car is expected to launch in 2026 as the Polestar 6 electric performance roadster.

"With the overwhelming consumer and press response, we took the decision to put this stunning roadster into production and I am so excited to make it a reality," said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar's chief executive.

Revealed in Los Angeles in March as the Polestar O2, the electric roadster concept builds on the design, technology and sustainability ambitions laid out by the Polestar Precept and showcases the brand's vision for future sports cars.

The hard-top convertible will be built on Polestar's bespoke bonded aluminium platform.

Developed in-house, it will feature the high-performance, 800-Volt electric architecture already confirmed for Polestar 5.

This includes output of up to 650 kW (884 hp) and 900 Nm from a dual motor powertrain, a targeted 0-62mph sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of more than 150mph.

To mark the launch, 500 numbered units of a special ‘LA Concept' version, the ‘Polestar 6 LA Concept edition', are planned to be produced.

They will exclusively feature a sky blue exterior, light leather interior and 21-inch wheels of the original concept car.

Further technical details and specification will be released leading up to the expected launch in 2026.
