The Polestar 2 is the result of endless design and engineering sessions, powered by Sweden's might-as-well-be-actual-rocket-fuel coffee and a determination to show the world our take on electric mobility. We're looking for any excuse to show it off, really. We'd bring a Polestar 2 to the front door of every licensed driver in the world if we could.
But since we can't (yet), we're bringing journalists to our Hällered proving ground. See a sampling of their thoughts below, and links to the articles at the bottom.

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.
