Polestar Cars, the Swedish electric performance car brand, has opened a new retail location in Bellevue, Washington. A short distance from Seattle’s bustling city center, the new retail location – known as a Polestar Space – offers sales and test drives of Polestar 2, an award-winning fully electric car. Polestar Bellevue is located at 575 Bellevue Square, Bellevue, WA 98004.
The opening of Polestar Bellevue is an integral part of Polestar Cars’ commitment to having a physical presence in all of America’s key electric vehicle markets. Washington state is second to California for the largest population of electric vehicles, and Bellevue was a natural choice to locate the first Polestar Space in Washington’s largest metropolitan area.
Polestar Bellevue gives customers the opportunity to learn about the brand from Polestar Specialists in a design-forward, avant-garde setting. The 2,800 square-foot Polestar Space features the brand’s vehicle lineup, a fully interactive wall display, and an interactive atelier table to explore vehicle configurations.
“The opening of Polestar Bellevue is an important part of our commitment to our retail expansion, giving Polestar a physical presence in all of America’s key EV markets,” says Gregor Hembrough, Head of Polestar North America. “In partnership with O’Brien Auto Group, this new Space will solidify our presence in the Pacific Northwest. We look forward offering Polestar’s distinct retail experience to Seattle-area customers.”
As part of the brand’s innovative retail model, Polestar 2 can be configured and ordered online via the Polestar Cars website for home delivery in the greater Seattle area, or with the help of a Polestar Specialist at the Bellevue Space. A test drive can be coordinated on-site or at a customer’s location of choice via Polestar.com/test-drive.
Polestar 2 is available in both single- and dual-motor variants, as well as with three optional equipment packs. The single-motor Polestar 2 has an EPA-estimated range of up to 270 miles* and starts at $48,400, the longest-range and the lowest-cost model in Polestar’s lineup. The 408-hp dual-motor variant starts at $51,900. For 2023, Polestar 2 cars equipped with the Performance Pack receive a power upgrade over the standard dual-motor car to 476 hp.
Polestar Bellevue is part of the brand’s continued expansion of its retail network of Spaces, with the goal of 35 locations across North America by the end of 2022.
