Polestar O₂
Mono-materials

Mixed materials have to be separated before recycling, making the process more difficult. Polestar O₂ proves that a car interior based on single-material components can pair style with sustainability.

Conventionally, vehicle interiors consist of a wide variety of materials. At the end of the vehicle's life, these combinations are hard to separate, making it extremely difficult to recycle them back to their original quality (and using lots of energy in the process). In contrast, all of the soft components of the Polestar O₂ interior are made from one base material: highly recyclable thermoplastic. Therefore, the foam, the adhesive, the 3D knit upholstery and the non-woven lamination can all be recycled without energy-intensive separation or loss of attributes.
