When we reported on the reveal of the Polestar 3 back in June, all we knew was that the new sporty-looking car from the Swiss marque would have an estimated single-charge range of around 372 miles under the dual-motor electric powertrain and that it would likely change the game as far as luxury electric SUVs are concerned.

Well, today, Polestar finally released the Polestar 3 electric SUV and its spec sheet. The pair of battery engines claim to put out 482hp and 619lb.ft of torque, with a Performance Pack option that increases those to 509hp and 671lb.ft of torque, although you might sacrifice some mileage and cash in the process.

Aside from the sleek silhouette, the car comes with some nifty tech as well thanks to the NVIDIA DRIVE core software — a carry-over from Polestar’s parent company Volvo — which uses cameras and monitors to watch blind spots and detect distracted drivers. There’s also a new motion sensor that lets you know if you’ve left somebody in the car. The eSUV’s “infotainment system” will run on Qualcomm’s immersive Snapdragon Cockpit Platform, which pairs with HD displays and a set of 25 Bowers & Wilkins speakers to provide a convenient user experience, device connectivity, and high-end Dolby Atmos surround sound.

The Polestar 3 starts at $83,900, but won’t see the U.S. market until sometime in mid-2024.
