This Polestar moped costs more than a used car

It is only available in North America, and only in light pastel blue.

Swedish automaker Polestar has just launched an upgraded version of its moped.

It looks a bit quirky but it probably costs more than you think.

In fact, it costs the same as a second-hand family car.

The moped was designed in partnership with Cake, a company that specializes in high-performance scooters and bikes.

It’s exclusively available in North America and you’re not exactly spoiled for choice when it comes to colorways.

There’s only one: Sky Blue, which is the same color as the Polestar O2 electric roadster concept.


It’s not a bad color, but a few more options wouldn’t go amiss.

Still, if you live in a crowded city, the Polestar moped actually makes sense.

It has a range of 60 kilometers (37 miles), which is not bad at all for an urban commuter moped.

And with a top speed of 43km/h (27 mph), it’s pretty speedy too.

You won’t be winning any races against Lambos and Ferraris, of course, but if you were hoping to do that, you wouldn’t be buying a moped.

But remember, they’ll be stuck in traffic and you won’t.

Polestar moped price

Polestar’s moped costs $5,300, which is basically enough to buy a second-hand hatchback or a family van.

About Polestar

Polestar was created in 1996 as Volvo’s sub-division for sports models.

However, when Chinese multinational giant Geely acquired Volvo in 2010, management began exploring different ways to turn Polestar into a standalone brand.

And that’s what exactly what they did five years later in 2015.

Even though Volvo and Polestar still co-exist under the Geely umbrella, they are independent.

Volvo mostly focuses on family sedans and SUVs, whereas the Polestar brand is used for electrified high-performance vehicles.
