Polyester delivered the first look of its Polyester 3 set for its debut on Tuesday, October.
The Polyester 3 is a medium-sized electric SUV paired with the electric successor to Volvo’s upcoming XC90 (which may be called the Embla) and both will be built at the Volvo plant in Charleston, South Carolina, where the Volvo S60 is currently located. Production will also be conducted in China for that market.
Since production starts in early 2023, that means we will probably see vehicles as 2023 models. Their underpinning is thought to be a version of the Volvo SPA2 platform built from the beginning of electric vehicles but capable of supporting hybrid powertrains.
The two SUVs will have different styling, the design of the Polestar 3 is clearly influenced by Polestar’s latest concept concept whereas the XC90 successor is more closely related to the concept of Volvo recharge. Volvo is also expected to have a flat roof compared to the curved roof of Polyester 3.

Both vehicles will provide a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system and adequate battery power for a range of more than 300 miles, in addition to a built-in leader for a designed self-driving system for highways.
Polyester 3 will be distinguished from the Volvo siblings by a greater emphasis on performance. With a 2021 interview Motor authorityPolyester America boss Gregor Hembro says Polyester’s goal is Porsche.
The Polyester 3 is expected to specifically target the Porsche Cayenne, while the Polyester 4 and Polyester 5 models will target the upcoming Electric Macan and Tecan, respectively, outlining the upcoming lineup in 2021. The name Polyester is derived from an independent race team and tuning company that was later purchased by Volvo.
With the new models, Polyester aims to increase its sales tenfold from approximately 29,000 units in 2021 to 290,000 units by the end of 2025.
