"It handles and rides with real sophistication… and just oozes cool.” Yes, that's how we all feel about the Polestar 2. That should be shocking to none. It's the embodiment of all our current ambitions. But when it comes to an objective look, we might be too close. We can't see the forest for the golden brake callipers.
What we needed to hear was impartial, unbiased feedback. We needed to expose the Polestar 2 to objective scrutiny. Therefore, we sent out the signal, and invited the press to Hällered to drive a Polestar 2 prototype. Journalists from the UK, Germany, Norway, the US, and China braved the howling winds and shimmering sheets of rain which pass for autumn weather in Sweden to drive the Polestar 2. And what they had to say was a resounding confirmation of our own opinions. That opening quote, in fact, is not from someone here at Polestar, but comes courtesy of Top Gear. See a smattering of other quotes below, and click on said quotes to read the articles.
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.
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.
