They came with cars. They came with boats. They came with zeppelins. They came with satellites. Some came without vehicles at all. From various countries and walks of life, they all came to participate in the 2020 Polestar Design Contest.
And the submissions exceeded every expectation, both in terms of creativity and quality. The impact was felt further abroad than we anticipated. And the winners were incredibly hard to determine, though the ones who took home the titles definitely deserved them.
In other words, the 2020 Polestar Design Contest was a success by any measure. We were amazed by what we saw.
And we can’t wait to see what the 2021 Polestar Design Contest will be like.
Polestar has never gone it alone. We’ve had plenty of collaborators, kindred spirits, and fellow EV enthusiasts with us on our journey towards sustainable electric mobility. And now, in Gores Guggenheim Inc., we have a new partner. One with whom we intend to go public, pursuant to a business combination agreement which we have signed.
Everything we produce today has an environmental footprint. EVs are no exception. But that doesn't have to be the case. Over time we can change how cars are made. And you can influence that progress. Because what you choose to buy is what the industry becomes. To enable us all to choose the greenest path, we all need to understand the scope of that footprint.
