Polestar has already shown off the Polestar 5 EV in concept and production form, but a new filing with the European Union Intellectual Property Office gives us a better look at the vehicle's design.
Late last year, Polestar teased the 5, inadvertently disclosing much of its design. The new patent illustrations, on the other hand, clearly indicate how close the manufacturing version will be to the concept.
The overall design is similar to the Polestar Precept idea, with minor aesthetic differences serving as the key distinguishing features. The Polestar 5 appears to have a higher suspension than the concept, and the diffuser has the same form as the concept's. The production Polestar also features a correct third brake light and a new, more ergonomic trunk/liftback form.
The model's powerplant is still a mystery, and Polestar has been tight-lipped about it. We haven't seen the interior either, and the car won't be here for another two years. It'll be a direct competition to cars like the Porsche Taycan, Tesla Model S, and Audi E-Tron GT when it does go on sale.
The Polestar 5 won't be released until 2024, after the Polestar 3 debuted in October and the Polestar 4 in 2023.
