The Polyester 3 electric SUV will make its worldwide debut this October, manufacturer Polyester has confirmed. The Order Book of Polyester 2 is expected to open on the day of the new car premiere; The upcoming fully electric SUV will be built in Rizviville, South Carolina, USA, as well as in China, the first location being the first to make the Polyester 3K mark in the United States.
The underpinnings of the Polyester 3 are expected to come courtesy of the second-generation scalable product architecture (SPA2) and are expected to come with a single- and dual-motor powertrain configuration like the Polyester 2. After the aforementioned EV, the Polyester 3 could be the brand’s third model in a range that also includes the Polyester 1 plug-in hybrid coupe.
According to the company, Polyester 3 will eventually offer autonomous highway driving from Luminaire through sensors and centralized computing by Nvidia. Next to Polyester 3, the electric crossover will be followed by 4, hinted to debut next year, followed by 5 itself, which is expected to appear in 2024.
With the news of the Polyester 3’s premiere timeline, Polyester further announced that the original figure for its forecast car supply for this year has dropped from 65,000 units to about 50,000 units.
This expected reduction for 2022 is “100% responsible” for the Covid-19 lockdown that occurred in China in the first half of this year. Polyester is hoping to recover some of its lost production volume by launching a second production shift at its China facility, and is confident that the brand will deliver on its sales targets from 2023 to 2025.
“Any short-term to medium-term economic impact does not dampen our target of selling 290,000 cars by 2025 – 10 times more than what we sold in 2021,” said Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polyester.
