The Polestar 6 is shaping up to be a hit.

Right before Monterey Car Week this year, Polestar announced its intention to produce the fabulous O₂ concept, as the Polestar 6. The Polestar 6 will be a 2+2 convertible, using the full electric architecture seen on the forthcoming Polestar 5 electric sedan flagship. The Polestar 6’s production-intent was topped off by a limited-run “LA Concept” edition, announced at The Quail during Monterey car week on August 16. Well, Polestar just informed everyone that all 500 build slots are spoken for. In fact, they were all gobbled up, about a week after the announcement.

Polestar is excited that the convertible has attracted so much attention. “The high interest from our customers shows that a stunning electric roadster like Polestar 6 has high relevance in the sports car arena,” said CEO Thomas Ingenlath. The brand insists the design and performance specs are tantalizing to “even the most die-hard petrolheads.”

The Polestar 6 looks to be one of the only EV convertibles on the market. The last EV convertible, or dedicated sports coupe at the very least, would be the original Tesla Roadster. The Polestar 6 is entering an unoccupied market of EV convertibles. Well, maybe the Chinese-market Wuling Hongguang Mini EV convertible could be a competitor, but that car’s pretty tiny and slow.

Reservations for more pedestrian versions of the Polestar 6 will open later in 2022. The Polestar 6 is planned to enter production in 2026, after the Polestar 3 SUV later this year, Polestar 4 coupe SUV in 2023, and then Polestar 5 “high-performance GT sedan” by 2024.
