Porsche and Polestar will offer their cars through a subscription service, through a monthly fee that includes all expenses, allows access to more than one model within their ranges.
Hace a few days ago Porsche shocked to announce its subscription service named Porsche Passport which quickly many did not hesitate to qualify as “The Netflix of cars”.
this Is a service through which subscribers will be able to access any of the cars of the range Porsche, with a total of eight models for a fee that has been set den us $ 2,000 (about 1,700 euros, the current exchange rate), no limits of changes or mileage and including insurance, rates and maintenance.
Almost in parallel to this announcement, Polestar introduced in China in the first of their models as a brand completely independent of Volvo. This is the new Polestar 1, a coupe of high performance, which uses a mechanical hybrid with 600 HP of power and that there is more than the production version (or almost) of the prototype that Volvo showed a few years ago under the name “Sport Couopé”.
The Polestar 1 is the first in a series of three models that will integrate the range initial of the Swedish firm, which will include in addition to the Polestar 2, a power that will be lucky to rival the Tesla Model 3 and the Polestar 3, an SUV that will also be electric.
Surely you are wondering that relates the service Porsche Passport with the new model of the now former division of sports Volvo. Well, Polestar has launched its new model will be marketed under the conventional format, but it will also be offered through a subscription service.
through this service, users will be able to “acquire” for a period of one to three years no down payment and through a monthly payment that will allow them to the access to a Polestar 1, as well as any of the current models of Volvo.
Both the Polestar 1 as many of the Porsche models have prices that exceed 100,000 euros, . We don’t know yet if this will be the future for this type of vehicle, although no doubt for many users this proposal will transform into a very good alternative.
