Polestar is in the process of establishing a family of all-electric models and with the Polestar 2, is shaping up to become a legitimate Tesla rival.
However, unlike Tesla, which now has four models in its range, the current Polestar range only consists of the 1 and 2 models. To give us an idea of what a new Polestar model could look like, Rashid Tagirov has created this: the Polestar 0.
The concept hasn’t been dubbed the Polestar 3 because the car manufacturer is already developing such a model in the form of an SUV. Unlike that vehicle, though, the Polestar 0 is a four-door rival to the Tesla Model S.
The unconventional design of the concept immediately catches the eye. Free from regulation and safety constraints, Tagirov has been able to design a vehicle with dramatically more radical styling than the Polestar 1 and 2. Consequently, the car incorporates a sharp, boxy design which is dominated by straight lines and is devoid of any curves. There’s a single LED headlight bar running the width of the vehicle, squared wheel arches, and a pair of free-standing fins rising above the rear wheel arches.
As with most actual new concepts, door mirrors are replaced by small cameras and while there are no images of the cabin, it’s clear that it can carry at least four adults. With the aggressive roofline, however, headroom could be limited.
As intriguing as the concept is, it is just an exercise, and a very futuristic at that. In reality, Polestar is currently developing the 3 SUV, while its fourth model is expected to be an all-electric convertible.
