    Need help buying your next car? Click www.carwow.co.uk/-help-me-carwow and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
    .............................................................
    This is the Polestar 1!
    It’s been a long-time coming, but Mat’s finally got his hands on the first car produced by Volvo’s performance division since they've gone it alone!
    When it comes to the looks, there’s no denying that the Polestar 1 is a gorgeous set of wheels. Not only that, but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment if you invest in one of these, as it’s a plug-in hybrid that can drive for 77 miles on electric power alone - the most of any PHEV available today!
    But just because it’s a hybrid doesn’t mean it’s down on power, as under the bonnet you’ll find a 2-litre supercharged engine which, along with two electric motors, can deliver 609hp and an amazing 1000Nm!
    Sadly, there’s one downside… It costs £139,000!!! So, is it worth it? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

For people complaining aboutthe price, the new Audi E-Tron and the Tesla Model S cost more than 100000£ as well.

For the price, it should be able to reach 60 in flat 4's or lower. The VW GOLF R is faster than that. I dont get what the car is. Its not a sports car, its not a real luxury coupe, its not a pure electric sports car. Does it want to be a posher mirai? What?

This isnt worth more than 70K, thats the truth... Its twice as expensive as what it should be, and its a freakin Hybrid, not even a BEV. At 140K this got literally not a single chance compared to the Etron GT, Taycan Turbo or the Model S plaid in anything, just no chance what so ever. Even at 70-80K it would struggle to compete with the base Model S and Taycan... Ive seen possibly every new BEV thats made on the roads in Norway, but never have i seen this, no one buys it. Just because its "only made" 1500 of em doesnt make it valuable, its insane how many there is that seriously thinks making a limited quantity of an item makes it more valuable..

It’s performance is poor for the price, space is poor for the target audience, it’s too much like a volvo, hopeless boot, terrible seats, rides like a 20 year old minicab, terrible driving dynamics and £140k. Just buy a V90 with the best engine if you must have a Volvo.

Hard to believe there will be anyone out there prepared to waste £140K on this thing, it's bloody awful. Only 2 seats that are realistically useable unless you're a family of midgets (no offence intended to shorter people). I cannot conceivably see how anyone could make a case for buying this car, couldn't fit your golf clubs into the boot, let alone 2 peoples clubs. It does look ok and seems quite nice inside but honestly........there's so so much better out there and for far less money and if you have that kind of money, what possible reason would there be to buy this car. Not for me thanks.

The car is an absolute beauty, and its innovative. All it needs is some great engine sound mimic system (great 5 cylinder sound or i6) and Volvo does them so they will probably have some access to the technology. I love the car, not sure about the price but other than that i really like it. It definitely stands out from the crowd.
