Polestar and Luminar continue to deepen their partnership, with Luminar’s technology now set to be integrated into the Polestar 5 – the electric four-door GT expected to launch in 2024, based on the Polestar Precept concept car. This expanded partnership provides a foundation for further collaboration on lidar integration and design on Polestar’s future vehicles.
“Luminar is at the forefront of lidar technology development and this closer collaboration will allow for greater innovation in our cars to come,” said Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath. “We look forward to combining our R&D and product design expertise to deliver truly stunning lidar integration and capabilities for the Polestar brand.”
Both the Polestar 3 and Polestar 5 will seamlessly integrate Luminar’s long-range Iris lidar and software into the roofline. Coinciding with the announcement, sales of Polestar 3 with lidar have been brought forward so that customers in initial markets can now place orders for Polestar 3 with lidar, with deliveries expected in 2024.
“As we successfully execute together, Polestar’s conviction in Luminar and the value of our technology have continued to accelerate. With this new expanded partnership and our shared pioneering spirit, we will push the boundaries of automotive technology and design into new territories for the next generations,” said Austin Russell, founder and CEO of Luminar.
