EuroCarBody Award 2019
We’re body positive here at Polestar. Take the bodies of our own products, for example. Two entirely different and equally unique examples of pure, progressive electrified performance cars.
And we’re not the only body-positive game in town when it comes to car engineering. EuroCarBody is a global car body benchmarking conference, meeting annually in the German salt spring city of Bad Nauheim. This is where automotive car body engineers meet to examine the development, performance and production processes for car bodies.
Not only that, it’s also the forum for the awarding of “the highest accolade in car body engineering worldwide”, the EuroCarBody Award. Broken down into the premium and volume segments, the award goes to cars which demonstrate innovative production developments in body construction. Which the Polestar 1 boasts not a few of.
Praised for both the high amount of carbon fibre involved in its construction, and the way that it acts as “an engineering study to learn about and promote the application of this material and its production”, the Polestar 1 took home 2nd place in the premium category.
We were thrilled that the Polestar 1 was recognized by such a peerless group of professional engineers/body enthusiasts. Every body is beautiful in its own way, carbon fibre or not.
Leading the charge: Polestar and Plugsurfing release an app
We need to make the right choice the desirable one. Electric mobility is the right choice. Its benefits, from the environmental to the economical, are obvious. And through design, technology, and innovation, we make the right choice the desirable one. People switch because they want the product, as well as the benefits.
Looking back at the future: Goodwood Festival of Speed
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is where the old meets the new. Where the classic and the modern coexist. It showcases the past, present, and future of car culture, like no other event. So, we thought it best to bring something new, and something (g)old. Something rare, and, of course, a story to be told.
