We are excited to announce that Grand Touring Automobiles has partnered with Polestar Automotive to become an authorized retailer and will operate the Polestar Space in Toronto and Montréal.
Founded in 2017, Polestar is an electric performance car brand committed to accelerating change towards sustainable mobility. Polestar vehicles are an extension of that commitment, each using premium components and sustainable materials to create a premium driving experience without sacrifice.
The first vehicles are Polestar 1, a 619 horsepower Grand Touring Coupe, priced at $197,000 CAD, and Polestar 2, an all-electric 400 horsepower fastback. The Polestar 2 is the first car in the world to feature an infotainment system powered by Google with Google apps and services built-in. The Polestar 2 will be introduced with an MSRP starting at $69,900 CAD, a targeted lease price of $899* / month or a loan with 0.9% APR**. Both vehicles can be designed and ordered at Polestar.com.
With a starting price of $197,000 CAD, the Polestar 1 is an 619 horsepower Electric Performance Hybrid, a combination of concept car looks, a cutting-edge drivetrain and driver-focused dynamics.
Polestar 1 is a beautiful carbon fiber-bodied grand tourer with an electric-first hybrid drivetrain. With a double electric rear axle and a 34 kilowatt-hour battery, the Polestar 1 offers up to 112 kilometers of range on the WLTP cycle.
With a starting price of $69,900 CAD, the Polestar 2 is the first Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) from Polestar, the electric performance brand. Designed as a premium vehicle within its segment, the Polestar 2 began production for global markets in mid-2020. With convenient online ordering, its mission is to provide every bit the performance, feel, and driving enjoyment of a great internal-combustion engine (ICE) vehicle with none of the previous downsides of owning an electric vehicle, including range anxiety.
The Polestar 2 boasts a combined 408 hp (300 kW) and 487 lb-ft (660 Nm) torque. Polestar 2 can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 sec, reach 200 km/h, and cover 470 km on a single charge of its 78 KwH lithium-ion battery, per Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) certification.
