As part of its expansion in the Southeast U.S., a Swedish electric vehicle company will open two new locations in South Florida.
Polestar will open a dealership in Fort Lauderdale at 301 E. Las Olas Blvd. within the Plaza at Las Olas later this month, said Steven Radt, Polestar’s head of network development. A Coral Gables dealership is expected to open in July, Radt added.
At present, Polestar’s sole location in South Florida is in the Tree of Life Plaza at 4047 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach.
Besides West Palm Beach, Polestar recently opened locations in Tampa and Atlanta. A Polestar dealership will open in Charlotte, North Carolina, in June while a Naples location is “coming soon,” a company release stated.
Polestar is expanding in the Southeast because it’s the fastest growing region for electric vehicle sales in the U.S.
“In fact, recent data shows Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas account for more than 11% of EV registrations nationwide, with Florida being the second in the nation for EV ownership, behind California and ahead of Texas,” Radt said. “It’s a very important market for our brand.”
