      More Polestars coming

      From the Car and Driver Blog today:

      “It was my mistake. I limited it to just 750 cars.” admits Lex Kerssemakers, senior VP of product planning and vehicle line management. “I just didn’t want those cars sitting around in case it doesn’t work, because then, rather than a brand driver it becomes a burden to the dealer. But the cars sold out significantly faster [than we expected]. That’s why we decided to do another batch.”

      I hope they realized that they may also have underestimated the demand of V90 2-door wagon or coupe.

      Would be nice to see a few more colors, and maybe some crazy ones.

      Bright yellow would be cool. The 850 T5R Yellow is still a head turner.

      And they absolutely need a ticket-me-red.

      It is sort of funny though to say "Limited edition" and then say "we are doing this again."

      So I guess if I bought #45 out of #80, the send lot of them should says "Series 2."

      There are two more colors added vs. first production batch; Ice White and Bright Silver.

      Bright yellow would be cool. The 850 T5R Yellow is still a head turner.
      It has to be the right yellow; the T5R yellow was not too bad but that was in the '90s.

      The Rebel Blue is a huge head turner, more appealing to the public than a yellow.

      And they absolutely need a ticket-me-red.
      I totally agree. The only problem is that you still have only 150 to 170 units to be produced...5 or 6 colors is just way too much for such LIMITED production.

      It is sort of funny though to say "Limited edition" and then say "we are doing this again."

      So I guess if I bought #45 out of #80, the send lot of them should says "Series 2."
      It will be a different model year. So, you can have LIMITED in different model years.
