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 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.
Advanced robotics and hydro-powered smelters: how we build a Polestar
Historically, factories might not have been something you bragged about. Dirty, old, dark buildings, far away from the essence of a company’s brand. But times change. The next generation of automotive manufacturing sites are intelligent, innovative, and green. As the first wave of Polestar 4s roll out of our state-of-the-art facilities (and with Polestar 3 production just around the corner), we’re opening the doors to some of our current and future sites around the world. So, come with us and see what goes into building a high-performance, exclusive electric vehicle.
