Polestar's chassis team is tuning the Polestar 1 handling balance in extreme winter conditions. Polestar's chassis engineer and test driver, Joakim Rydholm, is leading the handling evaluation process.
Watch how the Öhlins shock absorbers, combined with different rear anti-roll bar settings, are tested and evaluated at high speeds. Each setting step is half a millimetre apart, from a 20 to a 25-millimetre diameter. The top speed in the test drive is 200 km/h. The Polestar 1 prototype used in the test is stripped of all driver support systems so that the driver feels nothing but the exact base chassis settings. These tests are performed in a closed test track located in Sweden, just inside the Arctic Circle. Its average temperature is -25°C.
When it comes to dedication, one area we remain focused on is defining a new premium. It encompasses design, innovation and, of course, sustainability. That’s why it’s so gratifying when someone recognizes our approach. Because when it comes to confirmation and endorsement, there is no greater seal of approval than being named the best in all the aspects you value the most.
