What’s the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is that I don’t only work with other architects. I get to work with colleagues from totally different fields with different expertise.

What’s one thing you’ve done here at Polestar that you’re immensely proud of?

Actually, it’s being part of the automotive industry, which isn’t an industry that I initially thought I’d be in. I’m also very proud to play a part in creating a new brand from the beginning, both the concept and the design.

What job would you like to have, if you didn’t have this one?

I’d want the same job, but in a different industry. Fashion.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

My superpower would be the ability to do ctrl-Z in real life.

Would you rather be able to control animals with your mind, or electronics with your mind?

I’m a “more is more” person, so I’m going to say both!

With this in mind, we decided to sit down with Siddhesh Bhogal to talk about his Polestar 40 airship, the future of mobility, and why we need to start looking at flying cars differently.
