Swedish car manufacturer Polestar has revealed the Polestar 4, the world’s first mass-market car without a rear window. The vehicle is a five-door electric SUV coupé that is now available to buy in Europe and Australia, following its release in China last year.
Readers had varied reactions to the vehicle. One joked about its rear-windowless design, saying, “there’s no looking back from here,” while another praised its “forward-looking design”.
