Hier dan een topic voor Polestar.
Status momenteel: Polestar wilt de beurs op via een merger met SPAC GGPI. Plan is dit te doen begin 2022.

Polestar is een samenwerkingsverband tussen Volvo en Geely.
De Polestar 1 + 2 worden al geproduceerd.
In 2022 komt de Polestar 3 op de markt, in 2024 volgt de Polestar 4 en in 2025 komt de Polestar 5. Polestar omschrijft de 4 als een 'kleinere performance-SUV' en de 5 als een GT-achtig model.
Nb: de Polestar 3 rolt volgend jaar van de band in de fabriek van Volvo in Charleston, South Carolina. Bestaande Volvo fabriek wordt getransformeerd voor Polestar 3 cars. Dit betekent een snelle transformatie om producties uit te voeren.

Ik zie potentieel, omdat Polestar al auto's wereldwijd produceert en een mooie voorsprong heeft op de bestaande automerken die nu uit de startblokken komen.
Northvolt en Google zijn betrokken bij Volvo/Polestar.
Algemeen, een degelijke elektrische auto met veel mogelijkheden.

Canada: Polestar Developing Its Own EV Batteries, Motors, Architecture

Polestar isn't messing around. The company didn't exist in its current form a few years ago, and plans to go from zero sales in 2018 to 290,000 annual sales by 2025, with a break-even point by 2023 and profitability by 2025. Here's how. Gregor Hembrough, head of Polestar Americas, told Green Car Reports earlier this month at a Polestar 1 drive that the future of Polestar really has nothing to do with, nor does it look like, the Polestar of today. "There's no reason the Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 will be talked about in the same sentence," Hembrough said.

Polestar's goal is exponential growth with the introduction of the Polestar 3, Polestar 4, and Polestar 5. The automaker's target is the Porsche Cayenne with the Polestar 3, which it has already said will be a performance-focused EV. The Polestar 4 is aiming for the Porsche Macan. And the Polestar 5 will be putting a bullseye on the Porsche Panamera and Taycan. Specifically, Hembrough said, "Polestar wants to be a Porsche competitor, in design, performance, and innovation." To that end, Polestar's developing its own electric motors in-house in Sweden. Codenamed P10, the new electric motor will be about 1.5 times more powerful than those in the Porsche Taycan, with the target being 475 kw (a little over 600 hp). The motors will be compact at 36 by 50 by 64 cm) and connect to a 2-speed gearbox and the ability to disconnect for efficiency gains. It was noted by Hembrough that Polestar's new motors would not be shared with Volvo or Lotus, both of which are partners and sit within the parent company, Geely, automotive group. Polestar's UK team is currently developing a new in-house designed battery pack with Volvo and Lotus (the latter two will have access to the pack) with a new 800-volt electrical architecture. The new design will incorporate simplified compatibility with 400V fast-charging as well.

Hembrough was tight lipped on battery cell type, supplier information, and peak charge rate, but he noted at 103 kwh the pack would charge to 80% in 20 minutes or less. Bi-directional capability and V2X charging scenarios are also baked into the component set, at a rate of up to 20 kw.

All these components will sit within a new aluminum space frame architecture Polestar's developing as a clean-sheet platform for the Polestar 5. Volvo and Lotus will not have access to the new platform, according to Hembrough, though the executive noted Lotus will likely help with certain synergies such as suspension tuning. The Polestar 3, which will go into production in a year with deliveries taking place in Q1 of 2023, will ride on Volvo's SPA2 platform, Hembrough said. This will be the same platform underpinning the Volvo XC90 successor, though it's yet to be seen if any of these new components make their way into the Polestar 3.

Hembrough said Polestar will begin taking orders by the middle of 2022 for the Polestar 3, with the Polestar 3 to follow in 2023 and Polestar 5 in 2024.

Polestar 4 Electric SUV Coupe To Rival Porsche Macan EV
The Polestar 4 will enter production in China before the end of 2023; it will have a base price of around €55,000 in Europe.

Polestar has big expansion plans for its lineup in the coming years, going from two models at the moment—the Polestar 1 and Polestar 2—to five by 2024.

Unsurprisingly, two of the upcoming three launches will be SUVs (Polestar 3 and Polestar 4), while the third will be the Polestar 5 flagship sedan.

The electric performance car manufacturer teased the Polestar 3 earlier this month under a full camouflage wrap, revealing a sporty-looking body spiced up with Precept Concept-inspired details.

We also learned that the Polestar 3 will be made from 2022 at Volvo's plant in Charleston, South Carolina, alongside the next-generation Volvo XC90. The Polestar 3 will share the SPA2 platform with the XC90, albeit with a different floor assembly (skateboard chassis). It will be roughly the same size as the XC90.

What about the other upcoming electric SUV, the Polestar 4? A fresh report from Car Magazine sheds more light on this model. Speaking with CEO Thomas Ingenlath, the publication learned that this smaller vehicle will take aim at the next-generation Porsche Macan, which will go all-electric. Basically, the Polestar 4 will be to the Polestar 3 what the Macan is to the Cayenne.

First teased under a dust sheet to investors in late September 2021, the Polestar 4 will launch in 2023 as a slightly smaller and more affordable premium electric crossover alternative to the Polestar 3. Targeting the likes of the Porsche Macan EV, the Polestar 4 will adopt a coupe-like roofline just like its German rival.

"We have a second SUV in our pipeline. It will compete below the Polestar 3's €75,000 sector, it is slightly smaller. It will not compromise on the interior length, but this car is slightly more ground-hugging, a bit more of the coupe-type roofline."

The chief executive also disclosed the Polestar 4’s targeted starting price of around €55,000—the equivalent of $62,200 before any market-specific adjustments.

"The Polestar 4 really brings the greatness of the brand to a segment that will, eventually, start around €55,000, where we in some point in time want to reach with the Polestar 4. This is the [price] spectrum we will cover with these two cars."

Given its price and size, the Polestar 4 is likely to become the company's bestseller by mid-decade, according to documents the automaker shared with investors. With projected annual sales of 79,000 vehicles, it will outperform the Polestar 2 sedan eventually.

The coupe-style SUV will enter production at parent company Geely's Hangzhou Bay factory in China before the end of 2023, based on a different group EV architecture than the Polestar 3—Geely's Sustainable Experience Architecture (SEA).

Polestar 3 electric SUV – Everything we know in Dec 2021 [Update]

Home » News » Polestar » Polestar 3 electric SUV – Everything we know in Dec 2021 [Update]

In June 2021, Polestar released the first teaser of its electric SUV, the Polestar 3. The company also announced that it will build the vehicle in the United States. It plans to price the 3 at the same level as Porsche’s Cayenne, which costs between USD 69,000 (SUV)/USD 77,500 (Coupe) and USD 165,300 (SUV)/USD 180,800 (Coupe).


Polestar plans to manufacture the Polestar 3 alongside Volvo models at the Volvo Cars’ first US plant in Ridgeville, Berkeley County, South Carolina. Currently, the third-gen Volvo S60 rolls out of this facility. The first Polestar SUV will hit the production line at the end of 2022. Volvo Cars is a large shareholder in Polestar, and so, the latter benefits from its technologies, and the financial and industrial synergies.

The Polestar 3’s production will take place in China as well, at the company’s Chengdu plant, as local production can allow pricing the EV attractively and making regional adaptations. Autocar has reported that the European units of the 3 will come from the Chinese plant, not the American Volvo Cars. The Chengdu plant has an annual production capacity of 150,000 units, and Volvo Cars operates it.

At present, Polestar makes electric cars in two plants in China, for the local market as well as for exports to Europe and the USA; the niche hybrid-electric Polestar 1 is made in Chengdu whereas the Polestar 2 electric crossover is made in Luqiao.

Q&A: Christian Samson, product attributes lead, Polestar

Sam Petters31st December 2021
What career did you want when you were growing up?

I always found the mystical side of car development fascinating, getting to know how the engineering secrets within different areas build the whole car experience. The most complex areas were design, chassis and powertrain – this is truly where the soul of a car lives. You cannot change any of these without significantly changing the perception of a car. So how were the decisions of what character to give to a car taken, and by what means do you influence which characteristic? As I got older this meant I could try alterations firsthand, with my own cars, so understanding how to reach these secret decision rooms became clearer.

But at that time my dreams were quite humble: I would have been happy with the fly-on-the-wall approach just to learn.

What was your career path to get to where you are now?

It’s strange to retrospectively realize the power of dreams. I have worked with suspension and driveline development for Saab and Alfa Romeo, diesel engines, design and HMI at BMW, and was project lead for the majority of my work experience at Volvo Cars.

I’ve always really enjoyed ‘decoding’ the fundamentals and exploring where the magic happens. It took a while until I was willing to abandon the power of creating a supposedly better solution myself in CAD rather than trying to convince someone else verbally. It has always been a conflict of digging deeper into an area versus curiosity for another.

This behavior has allowed me to develop a lot of expertise in key areas, which now serves me very well. Unfortunately, I can however not really claim it was all part of a grand plan, more a matter of catching opportunities with successful timing.

If you had to choose one career highlight, what would it be?

What I am doing right now: shaping the next generation of emotional cars with a key emotional ingredient drastically changed – the driveline. What other key ingredients should we then better expose to changes, and which should remain only fine-tuned in this new world?

Our approach to convert the automotive industry to sustainable cars by simply being better than less sustainable alternatives is so much more fun than being pushed by legislation. Many others need to go electric – we want this!

What are the best and worst aspects of your job?

Nothing beats the satisfaction when pieces physically come together and development hurdles, joyful as they can be, become a tangible car that can be driven. Nothing is truly as frustrating as when great ideas get lost in the innovation-killing noise of administration and lack of time.

Please describe a typical day.

Normally a full agenda with meetings, quite often with a mix of super-urgent details and not-so-urgent matters that are important in the long run.

The pace [at which]new lessons are found and emerge in importance quite often breaks the pattern of a typical day. Efficiency gains in one area suddenly shed light on another area, which in turn opens potential in a third. It is a continuous balancing act between allocating resources for improvements for our next over-the-air update and even greater improvements that are on the horizon in the next a few years.

Do legislators help or hinder your work?

Legislators, by definition, add limitations, although these are mostly to help us stay clear of areas that you normally would not approach anyway. In the big picture, though, vehicle legislation is pushing our direction. Clean, silent, sustainable cars are the future.

What was your first car?

A blue metallic BMW 320i E21. My 1980, equipped with a Kamei body kit…

What do you drive now?

A Polestar 2 and this is my only car for now.

What would be your dream engine/powertrain to develop?

In terms of power output, driveability, NVH, response and efficiency, the dream motor is almost at hand, when combining the latest technologies from both permanent magnet and induction electric motors. But the heavy, large and in some aspects highly resource-demanding batteries still leave some room for dreams.

What do you think will power a typical family vehicle in 2040?

It’s hard to imagine anything else than that the propulsive component will be an electric motor, without any rare earth elements. The energy source is likely what we today define as a battery, although with much, much higher energy density than today’s cells.

Are there any other OEMs that you have particular engineering respect for?

BMW and Porsche have always delivered very talented engineering products, but sometimes the engineering disruptiveness of Tesla is very refreshing!

What is the biggest challenge for Polestar now?

Awareness. We are so proud when media and an increasing number of enthusiastic owners ‘get it’ and understand our approach and our cars, but we are still so small and unknown. If you like cars and you like driving cars, we’re likely to strike a chord – if you get the chance to drive a Polestar.

Qualcomm inks car chip deals with Volvo, Honda and Renault

Jan 4 (Reuters) - Qualcomm Corp (QCOM.O) on Tuesday announced deals to supply chips to automakers Volvo Group, Honda Motor Co Ltd (7267.T) and Renault SA (RENA.PA), accelerating its push to partner with legacy automotive firms digitizing their product lines.

The San Diego, California, company once known for its mobile phone chips has created a range of automotive offerings, from self-driving car brains to chips that operate digital dashboards and infotainment systems. But the chips are all aimed at the same goal of helping automakers transform their vehicles into rolling computers that can be updated over the air with paid upgrades that generate revenue for carmakers long after a vehicle has left dealer lots, a business model pioneered by Tesla Inc (TSLA.O).

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Qualcomm said it has reached a deal with Geely Holding-backed (GEELY.UL) brands Volvo and Polestar to use Qualcomm's "Snapdragon Cockpit" chips and an operating system from Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google in vehicles starting later this year.

The deal will allow Volvo’s electric SUV, which is to begin production this year, to tap into hands-free use of Google Assistant and navigation with Google Maps. The companies said that future upgrades will be sent out over the air.

Qualcomm also said that Honda will start using its "cockpit" chips in vehicles that will hit roads in 2023. Qualcomm also said Renault has agreed to use its automotive technology, but did not give specifics of which chips or when vehicles using them would arrive.

Qualcomm said on Tuesday that it has created a new chip and system for computer vision, which uses cameras on the car and artificial intelligence to help with safety functions like automatic lane control. The new "Snapdragon Ride Vision System" uses software from Arriver, which was part of Qualcomm's $4.5 billion purchase of automotive technology firm Veoneer Inc (VNE.N) last year.

De verwachtingen zijn goed volgens de berichten. Dat was ook met EVBox. Ik ben toch wel een beetje voorzichtig. Nu kan je aandelen kopen bij GGPI. Er zijn echter 2 mogelijkheden. GGPI of GGPIU. Weet iemand welke van de 2 je zou kunnen kopen voor Polestar?

GGPIU zijn units. Deze worden tzt omgezet in een zelfde aantal 'gewone' aandelen en warrants (soort optie om te aandelen te kopen binnen een bepaalde termijn). Voor iedere unit krijg je 1/5 warrant (dus 5 units geeft 1 warrant). met die warrant kun je tot een bepaalde datum altijd een aandeel kopen voor $11.50 (een soort optie dus).
Zie link: spactrack.io/spac-detail/?symbol=GGPI
Units zijn duurder en warrants geven administratiekosten.
Ik heb ervaring bij BinckBank gehad dat ik alleen units kon kopen en heb dat ook altijd gedaan en bij een piek gewoon weer de units verkocht en winst gepakt.
Maar als je de mogelijkheid hebt 'gewone' aandelen GGPI te kopen, dan moet je dat gewoon doen. Hebben ook lagere prijs.

Persoonlijk vind ik Polestar en goedlopend en gezond bedrijf met een uitstekende outlook en bezig met een perfecte uitbreiding autopark binnen 3 jaren. Polestar 1-2-3-45. Ze producten al wereldwijd, de auto's rijden rond en het is kwaliteit. Als ik dan naar Lucid en Rivian kijkt, liggen die ver achter.
In Amerika zijn toch veel SPAC-ers zeer enthousiast en een stevige stijging binnen een maand wordt toch wel verwacht.
Met name als de mergerdatum bekend wordt gemaakt. Die verwacht ik binnen enkele weken kijkend naar de geruchten.

Binnen 6 maanden zou de merger plaatsvinden.

Prijs aandeel is ver gezakt afgelopen week: ideaal instapmoment.

GGPI - Polestar is niet te vergelijken met EVbox. Alle documenten zijn gecommuniceerd, iedereen is transparant en het mergerproces loopt zoals het hoort. De PIPE investeringen (investeringsmaatschappijen die vooraf al investeren en op gegeven moment hun kapitaal/winst willen innen) zijn verhoogd en termijn is verlengd. Veel vertrouwen in dit product dus.

Zie in mijn eerste post de SEC files link, kun je alles volgen en zien.
In December, Tesla sales rose 88 percent, while Polestar was up 38 percent and Porsche increased by 34 percent.
Tesla, Polestar and Porsche were among brands that increased sales in a German market down 27 percent in December.
