Polestar 3 delayed, brand reports Q 2023 resultsPolestar achieved record first quarter deliveries of 12,076 cars, up 26% year on year and enters the second quarter with good commercial momentum. The company has experienced strong growth over the past five years establishing a global footprint with over 100,000 cars on the road across 27 markets.
