Polestar hasn't revealed how quick the 5 will be in a straight line, which will be the true measure of how it stacks up against Musk's range-topping Tesla Model S Plaid.

Pete Allen, head of Polestar UK R&D, said: “Polestar 5 is shaping up to be a superb 4-door GT and a true Polestar at heart.

"The platform combines low-volume performance car attributes with modern technological advances to bring light-weight, high-rigidity sports car chassis technology into mass production.”

The 5 is planned for launch in 2024 and is the third of three new EVs expected to be launched by Polestar in the coming three years, following the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 electric SUVs.

Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, said: “Polestar 5 is a company-
defining project.

"Its progressive design and advanced engineering set the tone for Polestar’s future.

"We have great talent on board enabling us to
create truly iconic EVs.”
