Polestar’s sleek O2 concept is set to make the transition to production as the 6 roadster, with first deliveries planned for 2026. The EV company has opened reservations today, with interested buyers able to secure a build slot by placing down $25,000 to lock in the price. TG can report that the first 500 slots for the special LA Concept edition have already been claimed, complete with sky blue paint and unique 21-inch wheels. Full details on the regular production car will be released closer to its launch window.
2026 Polestar 6 Release Date
Polestar has confirmed that it’ll put its O2 roadster concept into production as the 6. Due to arrive in 2026, it will be one of the fastest EVs on the market with a top speed of around 155mph. It’s also expected to have a range of around 370 miles using the WLTP cycle. However, despite the relatively short battery capacity, Polestar is promising 800V charging capability so refueling will be fast and easy.
Interested buyers can reserve a 2026 Polestar 6 by placing a deposit via Polestar’s website. Those located in all active Polestar markets (including Australia) are eligible, and the first 500 reserved slots will get the O2 concept’s Sky blue paint, light interior and unique 21-inch wheels. The standard Polestar 6 is due to launch four years from now, and Polestar will release details of its pricing closer to that time. It will be positioned below the Polestar 5 electric sedan and above the upcoming Polestar 3 SUV.
2026 Polestar 6 Price
The Polestar 6 looks gorgeous and packs a powerful electric powertrain. However, it won’t be available to the public until 2026. That’s still a long time to wait, but interested customers can reserve the car online starting today. The first 500 numbered launch edition cars will have a Sky blue exterior paint, light leather interior and unique 21-inch wheels from the O2 concept.
The production Polestar 6 will follow the jaw-dropping O2 roadster concept revealed in March. It will use the same bonded aluminium platform as the Polestar 5, and feature its 800-volt electric architecture capable of charging the battery to 80 percent in under 20 minutes. The electric roadster will also pack 884 hp and 663 lb-ft of torque from its dual-motor layout, with a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and 155 mph top speed. Polestar says the production model will be a new kind of sports car that puts emotion at the forefront. A fast electric car is great, but if it’s not enjoyable to drive, it’s pointless.
2026 Polestar 6 Full Specification
The Polestar 6 roadster is the latest addition to the EV market. The Swedish manufacturer’s high-performance drop-top was previewed by the O2 Concept and will hit production in 2026. The firm will offer 500 numbered LA Concept Edition models featuring Sky blue paint, a light leather interior and the unique 21-inch wheels from the concept. Polestar is using the 800V electric architecture developed for its Polestar 5 grand tourer to power the 6 with 650kW of power and 900Nm of torque from twin motors. This should allow the roadster to blast to 62mph in just 3.2 seconds and reach 155mph flat out.
The two-seater will also benefit from trick suspension to deliver class-leading handling. While pricing isn’t yet confirmed, Polestar has hinted that it could compete with the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S in terms of price. It will have an extensive battery pack to deliver a decent range of up to 600 miles (WLTP). The company will offer fast charging for the 6 with its 400-volt Rapid Charge system, which can boost the car to 80% in just 20 minutes.
2026 Polestar 6 Design
The upcoming 2026 Polestar 6 is a sleek electric roadster that’s built with sustainability in mind. Polestar is benchmarking its drop-top sports car against the Porsche 911 and Taycan to imbue it with class-leading driving dynamics. Polestar’s CEO, Thomas Ingenlath, wanted to design a roadster that was light and energetic. He says the bonded aluminum platform’s quality and rigidity allow for heightened dynamic response, while short roll angles and high roll damping keep handling taut.
Several key details from the O2 concept have carried over to the production model, including its unique ‘Sky Blue’ paint color, a light leather interior, and 21-inch wheels. Polestar will produce 500 numbered’6 LA Concept Edition’ vehicles to celebrate the launch of the new roadster. Polestar is also planning a few cool tech features, like a retractable autonomous cinematic drone that can be deployed at speeds up to 56 mph to capture video footage and photos. Stay tuned for more details on this interesting feature when the production version of the Polestar 6 debuts.
