Swedish electric vehicle (EV) maker Polestar has announced an expansion plan into seven new markets. The car company will add retail operations across these new countries through 2025.

The company will introduce new EVs in France, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Thailand and Brazil. The step is part of Polestar’s shift to a non-genuine agency sales model across Europe. Customers can still configure and order a Polestar online and through new Polestar Spaces and service locations for new models.


The company has switched to a non-genuine agency sales model this month in Sweden and Norway, while other markets will follow this roadmap in the second half of the year. Among the new markets, Germany and France are the two largest volume countries for EVs in Europe. The company will also acquire local distribution partnerships in other countries.
