Mono means more: the interior material innovations of Polestar O₂

A lack of variety can be a good thing.

The term “mono-material” describes the use of a single material base to manufacture complex products. A mono-material vehicle interior simplifies recycling and is a significant step towards greater circularity. 

A highly recyclable thermoplastic is the sole material used for all the soft components of the interior: the foam, the adhesive, the 3D knit fibre, and the non-woven lamination. This use of a single base material can reduce both weight and waste.

Which is why it sits at the heart of this car.

The interior of Polestar O₂.

This mono-material, due to its unique properties, allows for a new, more circular definition of luxury. It does away with energy-intensive material separation, meaning that all components can be recycled together without any loss of material characteristics.

No separation. No waste. No loss of properties.

No variety.
