Volvo controlled EV brand Polestar has gone live on the U.S. stock market under the ticker PSNY following its SPAC deal with Gores Guggenheim.
Polestar agreed to merge with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) back in September 2021, with the merger now all wrapped up.
The deal values Polestar at roughly US$21b and provides the company with $850m in cash, as it expands beyond its single model.
Polestar is expected to launch two new series by the end of the year, which it says will compete with various models made by rival Porsche.
The company expects to ship 50,000 units this year, with 124,000 EVs shipping in 2023.
The listing will float only 6 percent of Polestar’s stock, with the remainder being held by Volvo, Volvo parent company Geely Holding and Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, an early investor.
The company brands itself as the only other global “pure-play” EV brand after Tesla. Check out our guide on the top electric vehicle stocks if you are interested in the sector.
