Polestar confirms that the flagship of the future will not have a rear window


Images revealed this week by Polestar show that the future 5 Series will not have a rear window. In its place, the driver will have a camera to see the back of the car. The rear windshield wiper, as a result, will also be isolated.

For answers to the Carbuzz website, the Swedish automaker also mentioned that the car will be subject to each country’s laws. If an alternative without a protector is not possible, there is a possibility for the manufacturer to build an alternative project for example depending on where it will be sold.

Polestar also ensures that the design complexity in the 5 model will be important to consolidate the manufacturer as a leader in the electric sedan category. The Swedish company is really daring in the advertising, claiming that the battery-powered model will have better stability than the petrol sports car. In this sense, they believe that the removal of the rear window will be beneficial to the chassis, as well as the inclusion of a camera, which will help the car to have a lower coefficient of drag.

“We wanted this car to be light, we wanted high quality and we wanted to make it fast,” says Pete Allen, head of research and development at Polestar UK. “This architecture offers excellent strength and safety characteristics, with low investment technology used for high production rates.”

The Polestar project is attracting attention in the automotive industry as it is built on an all-aluminum platform. The Volvo subsidiary is also known for being one of the few in Europe that prioritizes the production of sedans over SUVs.

Polestar promises to release more details about the 5 in the series Command: From Concept to Vehicle, on your YouTube channel.
