Next-gen safety features, developed by Volvo are integrated into this car. As standard, Polestar 3 features a total of five radar modules, five external cameras and twelve external ultrasonic sensors to support numerous advanced safety features.

This enables enhanced 3D scanning of the car’s surroundings in greater detail and helps prepare the car for autonomous driving.
Android Automotive OS is the in-car operating system, co-developed with Google and fronted by a 14.5-inch centre display.
With its 111 kWH battery pack the car is said to have a range of 610 km.
