Germany’s Luxury Car of the Year 2020
On the journey towards more sustainable electric performance, we wouldn't settle for making the car of the day, week or month. We went straight for Car of the Year.
Polestar 2 was chosen as German Car of the Year (GCOTY) in the Luxury category. A jury of 18 automotive journalists were impressed with the Polestar 2, much like other journalists from all around the world. Their selection was based on a number of criteria like driving pleasure, drivetrain, safety and price/performance ratio.
In addition to the luxury category, which includes all cars with an entry-level price of €50,000 and higher, the competition has four other categories: compact, premium, new energy, and performance.
This award means that Polestar 2 has qualified for the final round, along with the four other finalists, two of which are also electric vehicles. These five were chosen from 72 vehicles that have been released since the end of 2019. The jury will announce the winner on November 16th.
Polestar 2 won Luxury Car of the Year, but what it embodies goes further than that: a more sustainable future, which we'll continue to lead the way towards.

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.
