It’s been a busy few months for all-electric luxury marque Polestar. Following an early June announcement that the Geely-owned brand would be rolling out its first production SUV with the 3 come October, Polestar promptly dropped teasers to hype the 4 SUV and 5 sedan. Now we have confirmation out of Monterey Car Week in California that another vehicle will join the lineup. You guessed it: The new roadster is called the 6.

Much as the 5 takes direct cues from the Precept concept, the 6 will draw directly from the O2 concept that was unveiled in Los Angeles in March — so much so, in fact, that Polestar’s announcement says the 6 was “revealed to the world in March 2022 as Polestar O2” (emphasis ours). This suggests little outward change for what will eventually make its way to showrooms, but no images of a production-ready 6 are yet available.

Still, Polestar is willing to commit to some specifics. The brand says the 2+2 convertible will be capable of up to 884 horsepower and 664 pounds-feet of torque via a dual-motor powertrain underpinned by the same 800-volt electric architecture that will power the 5. A 0-60 mph time of 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph is targeted, and EPA-estimated range is expected to land somewhere north of 300 miles.

Polestar was also willing to commit to an initial production run — and an approximate price. What it calls the LA Concept Edition will be a limited run of 500 cars featuring the Sky Blue exterior, “animal-welfare-secured interior” and 21-inch wheels of the O2 concept. The “indicative price” once that build slot gets fulfilled: a cool $200,000.

Still here and thinking this sounds too good? A final note of caution: You won’t be getting any views of one in your driveway until 2026, when the Polestar 6 is expected to launch. Stay tuned for more.
