SK On to provide batteries for forthcoming Polestar 5 EV

Polestar and South Korean battery manufacturer SK On have signed an agreement for the supply of battery cell modules for the forthcoming Polestar 5 electric 4-door GT.

Polestar says it chose SK On due to its “superior battery cell technology that offers high-performing chemistry, fast charging, efficient discharging and superior driving range. The high-nickel battery cell modules comprise ultra-long 56 cm cells with high energy density.”

Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, says: “Our relationship with SK On has been fruitful following our initial MOU and their investment in our brand.”

Jee Dong-seob, CEO of SK On, says: “We are delighted to collaborate with Polestar on its top-tier EV model. We will solidify our partnership with Polestar and create new opportunities through this agreement.”

Production of the Polestar 5 is planned to start in 2025. The new EV evolved from the Polestar Precept concept car—the company has documented this journey in a video series, From Concept to Car.
