There's no shortage of sightings out in Hällered. Moose, deer, wolverines, hawks, and more have all been spotted out in the wooded areas of western Sweden. Even 5-door all-electric fastbacks.
The Polestar 2 is out of the production facilities and into the world. The verification prototype cars (an early build of the car for testing purposes) are now being driven on the variegated roads of the Hällered Proving Ground and its surroundings.
At this stage, everything is being tested. This is the first real-world experience the Polestar 2 is getting, and therefore, all the input is valid. Acceleration, handling, aerodynamics, braking, charging, responsiveness, and many more aspects are being exhaustively tested, all amongst the towering pines and lashing rain of Sweden.
Now there’s something new to see in the forested groves of Hällered. And it has 660 Nm of torque.
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.
1955 was a year for innovation and design. It was the first year the colour pink became a popular part of men's fashion. It was the year that UHF (Ultra High Frequency) television was developed. 1955 also saw the very first Red Dot award. In 2021, 66 years later, Polestar 2 has received the Red Dot “Best of the Best” award for product design.
