Roof load and loading on load holder*

When loading onto the roof of the car, a load holder recommended by Polestar should be used.

The aim of this is to reduce the risk of damage to the car, and to maintain safety while travelling.

Carefully follow the installation instructions supplied with the load holders.

  • Distribute the load evenly over the load holders. Put the heaviest objects at the bottom.
  • Check periodically that the load holders and load are properly secured. Lash the load securely with retaining straps.
  • If the load is longer than the car at the front, e.g. a canoe or kayak, fit the towing eye to its front socket and attach the bungee to this.
  • The larger the load, the more the car is exposed to the wind, thereby increasing its energy consumption.
  • Drive gently. Avoid quick acceleration, heavy braking and hard cornering.


The centre of gravity and driving characteristics of the car change when carrying a load on the roof.

Comply with the car's specifications with regard to weight and maximum permitted load.
