Following the announcement that the Polestar O2 electric roadster concept will reach production, 500 units of a special ‘LA Concept’ allocation are already spoken for

The Polestar 6 was revealed at the Quail – an event within the prestigious Pebble Beach concours – on August 16 with public interest high enough to see an initial 500 build slots reserved online.

Polestar opened 500 allocations for the flagship ‘LA Concept’ edition for early adopters. This number includes dealers in smaller markets, for example New Zealand and Australia, so it’s possible there may be some Polestar 6 LA Concepts making their way down under.

The Polestar 6 will become a reality shortly

Polestar’s latest production promise is based heavily on the O2 concept roadster shown in March 2022.

With two doors, a convertible roof and bonded aluminium chassis, the Polestar 6 is a cutting-edge beast. Exact performance figures and range claims are yet to be revealed, but twin electric motors could produce up to 650kW of power and 900Nm of torque.

More allocations will open up for regular Polestar 6 variants later this year, so if you missed out on the initial 500, don’t be too upset.

Those who missed out on the LA Concept edition will be able to secure an allocation later this year

Exactly when the Polestar 6 will hit roads is yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, the brand will continue selling its Polestar 2 lifted sedan and follow it up with the hotly anticipated Polestar 3 sporty SUV in October this year.

At least two more models are in the pipeline with a coupe SUV Polestar 4 set to debut in 2023, and the Polestar 5 (previewed by the Precept concept) due in 2024.

What is the Polestar 6 LA Concept?

The special edition LA Concept carries all the hallmarks of the O2 concept seen in March, except perhaps for the autonomous drone.

That means the 500 units will be finished in ‘Sky Blue’ hero colour, leather upholstery and the same 21-inch alloy wheels seen on the O2 concept.

This is the LA Concept edition of the striking Polestar 2

As for pricing, the Polestar 6 LA Concept carries an indicative sticker of US$200,000 (nearly AU$300,000 at time of writing) making it roughly the same price as a Porsche 911 Turbo or electric Taycan Turbo S in North America.

In Australia, the Polestar 6 is likely to command a higher price tag due to luxury car taxes and import duties. As a comparison, the Porsche 911 Turbo coupe starts from $405,000 before on-road costs in Australia.

Until the new Tesla Roadster with its promised 0-100km/h time of 2.1 seconds, or a Porsche Taycan convertible debuts, the convertible Polestar 6 will be essentially peerless. More allocations will be opening soon, stay tuned to Chasing Cars for more Polestar news.
