The press returns to Hällered
The Polestar 2 is the result of endless design and engineering sessions, powered by Sweden’s might-as-well-be-actual-rocket-fuel coffee and a determination to show the world our take on electric mobility. We’re looking for any excuse to show it off, really. We’d bring a Polestar 2 to the front door of every licensed driver in the world if we could.
But since we can’t (yet), we’re bringing journalists to our Hällered proving ground. See a sampling of their thoughts below, and links to the articles at the bottom.

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.
