2024 Polestar 4 electric SUV pricing confirmed for Australia

Another electric SUV is coming to Australia in 2024, with a price that sends it into battle against the Tesla Model Y, along with rivals from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz.

The 2024 Polestar 4 will be priced from $81,500 before on-road costs when it hits Australia in the second quarter of next year, with pricing extending to $91,500 before on-roads.

The entry-level car is the Long range Single motor, which mates a 200kW/343Nm motor on the rear axle with a 94kWh (usable) lithium-ion battery pack for a claimed range of “up to 600km”.

It’s priced in line with the Tesla Model Y Long Range ($78,400 before on-roads), along with the BMW iX1 ($78,900 – $84,900 before on-roads) and Mercedes-Benz EQA 200 ($82,300 before on-roads).

The range-topper is the Long range Dual motor, which adds a motor on the front axle for 400kW of power, 686Nm of torque, and “up to 560km” of range.

Owners can choose between Range and Performance drive modes based on their mood, and the 0-100km/h sprint takes a claimed 3.8 seconds.

Its pricing pitches it into competition with the Audi Q4 e-tron 45 Sportback ($88,300 before on-roads) and Tesla Model Y Performance ($91,400 before on-roads).

Where the larger Polestar 3 shares its SPA bones with the Volvo EX90, the 4 is built using the SEA architecture rolling out to brands under the Geely umbrella.

Oh, and there’s no rear window. Polestar has closed off the bootlid entirely, and offers rear visibility through a roof-mounted camera that offers a real-time feed to a screen in the cabin for “a far wider field of view than what can be experienced in most modern cars”.

In Australia, a number of options packages will be offered on the Polestar 4. They include:

  • Nappa leather upgrade: $7000
