Vancouver, BC (August 10, 2020) – LGM Financial Services Inc. (LGM), a leader in Canada’s finance and insurance (F&I) industry, announced today that they have partnered with Polestar, a design-focused electric performance car brand that harnesses refined performance and cutting-edge technology, to launch two new branded F&I protection products.
These products, Polestar Appearance Protection and Polestar Vehicle Protection Plan, are now available at all Canadian retail locations and are designed to support the uncompromised experience Polestar wishes to offer to its customers.

Polestar is the electric performance car brand jointly owned by Volvo Car Group and Zhejiang Geely Holding. Polestar enjoys specific technological and engineering synergies with Volvo Cars and benefits from significant economies of scale as a result. This facilitates the successful design, development and production of separately-branded, electric performance cars.
Polestar launched in 2017 with the Polestar 1 – a low-volume Electric Performance Hybrid GT with 619 hp, 738 lb.-ft. and an electric-only range of 70 miles – the longest of any hybrid car in the world. In 2019, the Polestar 2 was revealed as the company’s first fully electric, higher volume premium car. Arriving in markets from the middle of 2020, the Polestar 2 electric performance fastback comes with 408 hp and 487 lb.-ft., all-wheel drive, a 78 kWh battery pack and a range of 470 km (WLTP) for the first year of production.
In 2020, Polestar released the Precept – a vision study vehicle designed to showcase the brand’s future vision in terms of sustainability, digital technology and design. In the future, Polestar 3 will join the portfolio as a fully electric performance SUV.
