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.

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.
Design Fest Ghent: caramel, corn, and circular creations

Design Fest Ghent, a new biennial design festival, showcases ground-breaking designs and sustainable innovations. Like the sweet-smelling, circular creation BreaZea.
