Luxury electric car manufacturer Polestar has announced that global plug-in electric car sales during the third quarter of 2022 were 9,215 units. The automaker also said that it delivered 30,400 units of plug-in electric cars in 2022 so far, between January and September. This means on average, the automaker has sold more than 10,000 units of plug-in electric cars.
Polestar further claimed that it aims to sell 50,000 units of electric cars in the year 2022, which is significantly lower than the 65,000 units previously planned by the automaker.

This could become a significant new quarterly record for the EV brand.
Speaking about this target in the fourth quarter, Polestar claimed that achieving the 20,000 units of sales milestone in the fourth quarter is possible. It also claimed that the majority of cars are set for delivery in the current quarter and are ready, which means they have been either produced or are in transport currently.
