The Polestar 4 has been on sale in Europe and Australia since late January, and the model has just touched down in North America for its local premiere at the 2024 New York Auto Show.
Alongside the local debut, Polestar has also announced the official pricing details of its new battery-electric crossover. It comes in multiple trim levels with many accoutrements, and features two powertrain options and a single battery pack.

Kicking off the 2025 Polestar 4 family is the Long Range Single Motor version. It's offered from $54,900, so it is around $10,000 more expensive than the base Tesla Model Y, one of its biggest rivals in the segment, albeit smaller in every aspect save for the height. The Mercedes EQB has a $52,750 MSRP, and the Audi Q4 e-tron at $55,200.

Standard gear includes the 20-inch alloys, a panoramic glass roof, a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, an electric tailgate with a soft close feature, a digital key, an illuminated logo at the front, e-latch doors, a wireless charging pad, and electric adjustment for the front seats, eight-way for the driver and six-way for the passenger.

The Long Range Single Motor with Pilot Pack comes from $56,400 and adds Pilot Assist and Lane Change Assist. The Pro Pack starts at $56,900 and brings 21-inch alloys with a few gold touches. The Plus Pack ups the ante with a head-up display, three-zone climate control, heated steering wheel and rear seats, Harman Kardon audio, 12-way adjustable seats with manual leg extension, auto-dimming side mirrors, rear-seat entertainment system, and MicroTech upholstery, in return for $60,400 (MSRP).

All these models feature a 272 horsepower (276 ps/203 kW) and 253 pound-foot (343 Nm) torque electric motor, which enables zero to sixty mph (0 to 97 kph) in 6.9 seconds. The 102 kWh battery pack, which supports 200 kW DC fast charging, gives it an EPA-estimated range of 300 miles (483 km). The dual-motor versions enjoy a combined 544 hp (552 ps/406 kW) and 506 pound-feet (686 Nm) for 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, thus making it Polestar's quickest model yet. They feature the same battery pack and have a 270-mile (435 km) range.

Polestar 4's dual-motor lineup starts with the Long Range with Pilot Pack from $62,900. The Long Range with Pilot and Pro packages will set future buyers back at least $64,900. The Long Range with Pilot and Plus packages starts at $68,400, and topping the lineup is the Long Range with Plus and Performance packages, which is a $72,900 affair before destination, options, anda dealer fees.

It's worth noting that the pricing excludes the $1,400 destination fee. The order books will open late next month (April 2024), and deliveries will commence in the fourth quarter of the year.
