Autocar Game Changer 2020

You can’t win if you don’t play.

But what if the game is built for a different time? If it’s reliant on outdated traditions and conventions? Who would want to win a game like that? Who would even want to play it? We at Polestar certainly wouldn’t.

We’d look to change the game.

Polestar 1, Autocar's Game Changer for 2020.

We’d go all in on electrification. We’d insist on innovation. We’d redefine the old and improve upon the existing. And in doing so, we’d alter the rules of engagement. Polestar 1 was our first move in this new game. And it’s just been awarded Autocar Magazine’s 2020 Game Changer Award.

Polestar 1 is “an extraordinarily confident product, and a mission statement on wheels,” states Autocar. “It’s never dull to drive – far from it – and it’s an ability to travel meaningful distances on electric power alone that makes it unique in the class.”

If the game is built on outdated, now irrelevant rules, don’t refuse to play. Change the game itself. And in doing so, win.

Milan is the centre of the design universe (again)

With machine learning exhibitions, anti-smartphone throwbacks, and a giant brutalist orange lavatory, Milan Design Week is always one of the most sought-after tickets on the cultural calendar. Designs first seen on these well-trodden streets inevitably filter down into your homes, wardrobes, and, yes, even cars. As any good creative will tell you, if you want to see what’s coming next in the world of design, you must first start in Milan. We join Nargess Banks for this year’s must-see attractions at Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone.
