Polestar 2 production begins
We've made a big deal out of milestones before. That's to be expected. We're a part of the automotive industry, though the relationship is complicated, and milestones are very popular here. But this is a big one.
Polestar 2 production has started.
Despite numerous setbacks, unforeseen circumstances, and the sheer logistical challenge of getting production of our first all-electric vehicle up and running, it has indeed begun.
This is significant for a few reasons. Firstly, Polestar 2 is no longer a fleet of prototypes at various stages of completion. It's a fully realized car ready to be delivered to customers. Secondly, the countdown to those deliveries has officially begun. The first handovers are slated to occur in the summer of 2020. And last but certainly not least, we're that much closer to our goal of getting as many drivers as possible behind the wheel of a Polestar 2.
Celebrating milestones is a bit of a cliché. But this is a big one. And it deserves to be celebrated.
Polestar sustainability report 2021
Accountability is key. To combat the growing tide of greenwashing, greenhushing, and all the other buzzwords that denote a lack of transparency around sustainability work, we need to hold each other responsible. Successes and failures need to be communicated. Questions need to be asked and answers demanded. We need hard data when it comes to exactly what it is we’re doing, and what we have left to do. And when requiring these things from others, we can’t forget ourselves.
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
