Swedish EV-maker Polestar (PSNY) is inching ever closer towards its big release of the Polestar 3 SUV. Suffice to say the Polestar 3 will for Polestar — backed by Volvo and China’s Geely (0175.HK) — be the biggest product release in its history, as it takes on a growing field of EV SUV competitors like the Tesla (TSLA) Model X, Mercedes (MBG.DE) EQS SUV, and BMW (BMW.DE) iX.
