Swedish EV startup Polestar said on Wednesday its recently announced Polestar 6 sold out the 500 units of the ‘LA Concept edition’ in one week. The company plans to open reservations on build slots for regular versions later this year.

On August 16, the automaker said it will bring the electric Roadster concept into production with the market launch scheduled for 2026 opening the reservations opened on the same day. To reserve the $200,000 roadster, the company asked for $25,000 warning that the final price could change until the production phase.

The details and specification confirmations of the 2026 model will be released “as the production car becomes reality”, Polestar said earlier this month.

Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath commented, “The high interest from our customers shows that a stunning electric roadster like Polestar 6 has high relevance in the sportscar arena. The open-top-plus-electric combination is clearly one that appeals to even the most die-hard petrolheads.”

Last week, the roadster concept was shown to the public at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’ events during Monterey Car Week in California.

The hard-top convertible was revealed in Los Angeles last March and it will feature the high-performance, 800-Volt electric architecture already confirmed for Polestar 5.

The model will feature an output of up to 884 hp (650 kW) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) from a dual motor powertrain, a targeted 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).  


Amid the launch, the CEO said the company “took the decision to put this stunning roadster into production” adding that the model “is a perfect combination of powerful electric performance and the thrill of fresh air with the top down.”
