Polestar Scottsdale Announces a New Retail Space for Electric Vehicle Brand in the Valley


Polestar, an electric vehicle brand from Sweden, just awarded the Courtesy Automotive Group the only Polestar franchise in Arizona.  Courtesy’s new Polestar showroom will open this summer within Scottsdale’s Fashion Square Mall just across from Tesla’s retail space.  In the meantime, customers are invited to visit Courtesy’s pop-up space at Fashion Square to see and arrange a test drive of the Polestar 2 models now on sale. Courtesy began delivering and servicing Polestar cars as of June 2.

Polestar is a Swedish-based manufacturer that pioneered this unique vehicle design. A strategic affiliate of Volvo cars headquartered in Gothenburg under the ownership of Geely Holding and Volvo. Polestar has an international appeal, and is sold internationally.  Retail Spaces can be found in many metropolitan locations like Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C. and throughout North America.

The 2021 Polestar 2 is a custom- designed, electric performance fastback vehicle following on the commercial success of the Polestar 1. It is the company’s first fully electric car, introduced in 2020 with an all-wheel-drive electric powertrain and a range of 260 miles. Critically acclaimed across the globe, the Polestar 2 is the first vehicle in the world to feature an infotainment system developed by Google, which enables seamless voice commands and hassle-free navigation. With instant torque, the features and comfort levels of a luxury vehicle, and a mid-level price range make Polestar 2 the EV every family will want in their driveway.

Polestar 1 is a hybrid GT with world-class engineering designed to go fast. Alongside this efficiency, the carbon-fiber bodied coupe delivers incredible performance figures of 619hp and 738 lb/ft of torque, making the car all EV for daily driving and a performance sportscar when desired.

Coming in 2022, the Polestar 3 will be an electric performance SUV.

Courtesy’s CEO, Scott Gruwell, said, “Anyone seeking to own an electric vehicle with a unique, stylish design for the 21st century will want to own a Polestar. As a dealer we are committed to Polestar, it’s a dynamic electric technology with an amazing international brand, where its only mission is electric.
