We played it safe. As a company made up of car enthusiasts, one of our favourite things is talking to people about our products. However, the current state of affairs means that large gatherings are to be avoided. And even though we'd like nothing better than to assemble a bunch of Polestar fans and talk their ears off about the safety innovations to be found in the Polestar 2, it wouldn't be wise. Ironically, it'd be unsafe.
So, we took our innovative digital-first approach, already a hallmark of our brand, and applied it to this event, making it a webinar for newsletter subscribers to livestream (and putting it on YouTube for everyone to see).
Featuring a panel made up of Polestar Head of R&D Hans Pehrson and Polestar 2 Product Manager Beatrice Simonsson, the webinar was filmed in the showroom of our Gothenburg HQ, and featured presentations on Polestar 2 safety features, along with a Q&A session.
There's no better time to play it safe than when talking about safety. See the webinar here.
Polestar has never gone it alone. We’ve had plenty of collaborators, kindred spirits, and fellow EV enthusiasts with us on our journey towards sustainable electric mobility. And now, in Gores Guggenheim Inc., we have a new partner. One with whom we intend to go public, pursuant to a business combination agreement which we have signed.
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.
