    U.S. Among List of Launch Markets for Polestar 1

    Newcomer brand Polestar has set its initial launch markets for its Polestar 1 sports coupe. The list has been based on initial feedback since the car's reveal and has led to the U.S. being one of the first markets.*

    The U.S. isn't alone on the list of initial markets.*Motor Authority*reports the car will initially be offered in the U.S.,*Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany and China. Given Polestar has Swedish roots and their products are produced in China, at least two those five were sort of a given.*

    Although potential buyers have been able to express interest in the Polestar 1 online, really orders will not be taken until sometime in 2018. Buyers will be able to subscribe to the car through Volvo's new Care by Volvo service, which basically bundles all vehicle costs (outside of fuel) into a monthly payment.*

    Polestar does say the brand is considering traditional sales of the coupe as well, which is expected to carry a base price of around $150,000. That six-figure price tag will get you a mostly carbon fiber coupe with 600 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque from this plug-in hybrid.*

    While Polestar's first product is a performance hybrid, it's next three models are expected to be battery-electric models that are more focused on sales volume than this niche product.*
