Polestar to the people.
That was the reason behind the open Q&A session which took place in Oslo's Odeon Cinema on Thursday, January 16th. There's no doubt we've made a splash in Norway, with the majority of our Polestar 2 customers (and our first European space) calling the Scandinavian nation home. But not all of our Norwegian customers can make the trip to our Gothenburg headquarters.
But they can make it to Vitaminveien 27.
So, we headed to Oslo to hold a town-hall-style evening. CEO Thomas Ingenlath, Head of Design Max Missoni, Head of R&D Hans Pehrson, and Head of Global Sales Mike Whittington made up the panel, which fielded questions from roughly 500 Polestar customers. Topics ranged from delivery to financing and everything in between.
Questions were answered. Discussions were had. And the crowd went wild (by Norwegian standards).
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.
Circulor is a company that works with blockchain technology to trace materials and help companies achieve more sustainable and transparent supply chains. We spoke with CEO and co-founder Doug Johnson-Poensgen about traceability-as-a-service, proving responsible sourcing, and the LCA report that was recently released by Polestar.
