Polestar and Plugsurfing
Home is where the charge is. As the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles expands, range anxiety shrinks. More and more motorists will see electric charging stations as a natural part of the landscape, becoming as familiar as conventional gas stations while improving upon them substantially. Welcoming places to pass a few minutes while the battery gets topped up.
To help roll out the welcome mat, Polestar has partnered with Plugsurfing, providing unified access to charging networks throughout Europe. Each Polestar 2 in Europe will come with a Plugsurfing RFID tag as standard, meaning one app and one authentication device is all that’s needed to access 195,000 compatible charging points across the continent. It also forms a blueprint for coming national and local partnerships in other areas, with charging guidance and tips provided to all Polestar customers by their local Polestar space.
Charging infrastructure will become more commonplace as more and more EVs hit the roads. And thanks to services like Plugsurfing, it will be easier and more intuitive to use them. And feel at home doing so.

Is Quiet Luxury the next big thing in mobility?
You may have seen it on your TV screens recently. Your favourite fashion influencer has probably enthused about it on TikTok. Or maybe you've read one of the countless editorials that litter the lifestyle pages of glossy magazines. Unknowingly or not, the latest trend taking over the fashion industry has almost certainly touched your life. But dig a little deeper and you start to discover two things. Firstly, this trend isn't just limited to the fashion world. And secondly, it's not really a trend at all. Welcome to the wonderfully rarefied world of quiet luxury.
Four things you didn’t know about Polestar (but wished you did)
We’re not one to toot our own horn. So we won't. We won't tell you how we've manufactured 150,000 Polestar 2s. We won't get into brand growth and vehicle registrations. And we certainly won't mention our ever-growing global retail footprint that has resulted in over 20,000 handovers in the United Kingdom alone. No. We'll leave the PR to the press people. Instead, as others celebrate these milestones, we'll focus on some of the human (and not-so-human) stories behind the numbers. Because Polestar isn't just about cars. It's about people.
