Since the beginning of the year, the Swedish electric vehicle maker expanded to 4 new markets increasing its global presence to 23 markets, seven away from its target of 30 markets in aggregate by the end of 2023.
Last week, the company reported record sales for the first four months of 2022 with vehicle sales more than doubling to approximately 13,600 and the order take more than tripling to nearly 23,000 year over year. “We promised growth and we are delivering on that promise,” Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO said.
Although, Polestar reduced 2022 guidance from 65,000 units to 50,000 due to the “prolonged government COVID-19 lockdowns in China during the first half of 2022”.
“While exceptionally strong order-take shows Polestar’s ability to achieve its 2022 target of 65,000 vehicle sales, the company is facing supply chain constraints that continue to challenge the whole of the auto industry.
Polestar intends to list on the Nasdaq in a proposed business combination with Gores Guggenheim, Inc. (Nasdaq: GGPI, GGPIW, and GGPIU), which is expected to close in the first half of 2022.
