Two years of the 2
It’s been two years. Two years since the world learned that electric cars could be premium, sustainable, and high performance, without compromising on design. Two years since the reveal of the first car in the world to feature an Android Automotive infotainment system. Two years since premium was redefined with vegan upholstery and reconstructed wood. And to call those two years eventful would be an understatement.

White slopes and green goals: How Laax became one of Switzerland's greenest ski resorts
Our partnership with Weisse Arena Group who manages the ski resort of Laax in the Swiss alps is in its second year so we caught up with their Sustainability Officer, Reto Fry to talk green goals and how to keep our slopes white in the face of climate change.
When in Rovaniemi
Do as the locals do. Words of wisdom that any seasoned traveller is familiar with. They don’t just govern behavior, however. They speak to the importance of having an open mind, embracing new customs, and adapting to one’s surroundings. There are equivalents in all languages. In English, one is told that “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”. It counts for the Italian capital, just as it counts for northern Finland. Which is exactly where we headed this winter.
Road to Ronda
Achieving the perfect driving experience is dependent on two things. Firstly, the car needs to provide optimal speed, comfort, and handling so one can really feel the thrill of driving. Secondly, it’s the real estate agent’s creed: location, location, location. We work tirelessly to create the cars that provide you with the perfect driving experience wherever you drive, and the road to Ronda makes the job a little easier.
