Polestar opened a new retail location in Charlotte, NC, at 4425 Sharon Road, Ste. S140, it announced in a news release.
The latest Polestar Space---the first in North Carolina and 31st in North America---helps to address the need for more electric vehicle retail options in the state, as it saw a 50% increase in EV registrations in 2022.
"Polestar Charlotte represents the latest addition to our rapidly expanding retail network and marks our brand's debut in the Carolinas," said Gregor Hembrough, head of Polestar North America. "With this new location, customers in Charlotte and its surrounding communities now have the opportunity to explore our brand and discover our premium EV lineup, including our all-electric SUV Polestar 3, which is now proudly showcased in all of our Spaces.”
The new location in The Queen City builds on Polestar’s established network of retail locations, bringing the brand to local communities, enabling a hands-on experience with the cars.
“We have seen a significant shift in the automotive market over the last year, with many people choosing to drive electric,” said Michael Spinks, principal of Polestar Charlotte. “My team is excited to introduce Polestar’s lineup to the residents of North Carolina, and help the brand become a key player in the state’s electrification transition.”
In all Polestar Spaces, customers can now get a firsthand look at Polestar 3, a new SUV, which features an expertly-tuned suspension, true torque vectoring and a low center of gravity for responsive handling and road stability. Polestar 3 is available to order now on Polestar.com with deliveries set to begin in 2024.
Customers can also test drive and learn about the all-electric Polestar 2 fastback, which has an NHTSA 5-star safety rating and Google’s Android Automotive OS infotainment system. Polestar 2 qualifies for the $7,500 Federal IRA Clean Vehicle credit when leased, as well as various local electric vehicle incentives.
Polestar plans to open more retail locations in the U.S. Southeast.
