Precept to enter production
Your wish is our next project.
Polestar Precept was conceived as a commitment car. The antidote to a concept car, Precept was our answer some pressing questions facing our industry. How can we be more sustainable? Do we need to sacrifice aesthetics in the name of the environment? How can we make the in-car experience more connected, intuitive, and contextualized? Concept cars that are Hollywood dreams will never answer these questions. We built Precept to show that this was our take on these issues. This was our answer to the riddle of more sustainable, connected, electric performance.
The response to Precept was all the confirmation we needed. The sustainable, upcycled, and animal-free materials we used in its construction showed that we designed a new premium when it came to aesthetics. The infotainment system (again, with Google built in) is more informative and responsive than ever before. The public saw this and were not shy about saying they wanted Precept to be more than a mission statement on four wheels. And frankly, we agree.
So, we're putting Precept into production.
BST edition 270: the performance-oriented Polestar 2
Performance is relative. For most people, running 100 m in 20 seconds would be remarkable. For Usain Bolt, it would be a disappointment. Polestar 2, with its holistic, intuitive, highly engineered driving experience, is already a performance EV by many standards. With the release of Polestar 2 BST edition 270, there's now a version that brings that performance to an entirely new level.
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.
