TAMPA, FL – (Dec. 15, 2021) – Florida’s first Polestar space will open at Midtown Tampa in early 2022, featuring three fully electric vehicles on display.
“It’s exciting to welcome a local entrepreneur bringing a regional flagship destination for such a forward-thinking and technologically advanced brand,” said Nicholas Haines, CEO, Bromley Companies. “Polestar’s focus on sustainability fits perfectly at Midtown Tampa, where Polestar vehicles can be plugged in to our existing electric charging stations.”
Polestar Midtown Tampa is owned by Danny O’Malley, a businessman who has lived in Tampa for over a decade and owns Volvo Cars Tampa. O’Malley had been searching for the perfect location to open a Polestar space when he landed on Midtown.
“With Midtown Tampa’s central location and high quality of tenants, it’s easily the best location in Tampa Bay,” said O’Malley. “Our customer base will appreciate the destination and all it has to offer as they design their perfect Polestar vehicle in our new space.”
Polestar Midtown Tampa will be located in 2,500 square feet across from Sephora and behind Ponte Tampa.
As an industry leader and innovator, Polestar offers a minimalist and dynamic design that is timeless and sophisticated, while pushing the envelope on sustainability and performance in an electric vehicle.
Potential Polestar owners will be able to visit Midtown Tampa to check out the vehicles, customizations and packages. All sales are handled online and are completely tailored to individual preferences. Vehicles are delivered about two weeks after financing is secured.
While Polestar is a completely independent brand, it is half owned by Volvo. The Midtown Tampa location expects to open to the public early in the second quarter of 2022.
“Electric cars, especially the caliber of Polestar, are coming very quickly to the market and sales are continuing to grow,” O’Malley adds.
The Polestar 2 sedan has a base price of $49,900, while the Polestar 1 – a halo two-door coupe – starts at $156,000. Polestar 3, 4 and 5 are expected to come to market in 2022, 2023, and 2024 respectively, offering more options to those interested in purchasing a performance electric vehicle.
Midtown Tampa is now nearly 100% leased with restaurants, shops, and exciting businesses opening throughout 2022 and 2023, adding to the vibrancy of the district. Opportunities for premier office space are still available.
Polestar, headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, was established as a new, standalone Swedish premium electric vehicle manufacturer in 2017. Founded by Volvo Cars and Geely Holding, Polestar enjoys specific technological and engineering synergies with Volvo Cars and benefits from significant economies of scale as a result.
Polestar has produced two electric performance cars. In the coming three years, Polestar plans to launch one new electric vehicle per year, including a fully electric performance SUV in 2022. As the company seeks to reduce its climate impact with every new model, Polestar aims to produce a truly climate-neutral car by 2030.
