Curbing Concerns: EV batteries

EVs are becoming ever more popular. Something we’re obviously very excited about.

Accountability is key. To combat the growing tide of greenwashing, greenhushing, and all the other buzzwords that denote a lack of transparency around sustainability work, we need to hold each other responsible. Successes and failures need to be communicated. Questions need to be asked and answers demanded. We need hard data when it comes to exactly what it is we’re doing, and what we have left to do. And when requiring these things from others, we can’t forget ourselves.

The importance of impatience: Polestar 2 sustainability upgrades

Patience. A famously good thing. There is no end to the folksy phrases and nuggets of wisdom that emphasise the importance of being good at waiting. Patience, it’s said, is a virtue. But when it comes to righting environmental wrongs, it’s also a luxury. One we don’t have. Which is the reasoning behind the Polestar 2 sustainability upgrades.

Hot and cold behaviour: how EV batteries are affected by extreme temperatures

EVs are an integral part of a cleaner, more sustainable future. And to enable widespread electric vehicle adoption, they must be optimised for all environments and conditions. After all, whether 25° C or -25° C, the tailpipe emissions still need to be zero.

Staying current about current: the latest from the world of batteries

Everyone knows that EVs have batteries. Keeping up with the ever-evolving world of batteries, however, is a different story. Which is why we decided to break it down. In this series, we will explore the state-of-the-art of EV batteries, answer the most common questions about their second life applications, and provide a breakdown of cutting-edge battery technology.

The Polestar universe is one of precision. Materials, colours, sizes, angles, they’re all given what some might consider an obsessive amount of attention. This is done, in part, because one often uses more than one sense when experiencing things. It true of the products. It’s true of the brand. And it’s true of the spaces.

Polestar 0 project: open call for collaboration around sustainability

The power of multiple points of view. The strength of diversity. And the capacity for creativity through collaboration. More than anything, they foster innovation. Which is just what it will take to realise our vision of a truly climate-neutral car by 2030.

2’s Day with Polestar 2

2’s Day. Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022. Or, more satisfyingly: 22/02/22. Given that it will take another 200 years for the next occurrence of this type (and it looks like February 22nd, 2222, will actually fall on a Friday), we figured there was no better time to look at our own number 2.

No compromises: Polestar at the Big Game

Agreeing is easy. Challenging the status quo, however, is not. Driving progress means questioning conventions, old ways, and established methods. Saying no, in other words. No to time wasting, no to smoke screens, and no to shortcuts. So when it comes to following the industry standard, it's a no from us.

Art for a sustainable age

Sustainability. A term that has shaken off any buzzword-like connotations to become a rallying cry for the modern era. It categorises a movement that is still taking shape, one that’s seen as the answer to the unfolding situation that is the climate crisis. Industries, individuals, and initiatives are defined by how sustainable they are, from art to automotive. Especially when they come together.

We Harvest Wind: Thijs Biersteker drives change through art

Art communicates. It resonates with us all in a way that few of us can fully articulate. The medium doesn’t matter either. Whether sculpture or song, acrylics or alabaster, art provokes a reaction. As such, it’s an incredibly powerful way to deliver a message, directly accessing the audience’s emotions and creating a connection. Which is exactly why Thijs Biersteker does what he does.

The Polestar universe expands

About 14 billion years ago (it’s estimated), the universe burst into existence. Ever since, it’s been expanding outwards. And though it’s only been four years as opposed to 14 billion since the creation of the Polestar universe, it’s already experienced growth at a breakneck speed. As we head into a new year, our global presence continues expanding at an accelerating pace.

Green charging: new technologies

The EV revolution is spreading rapidly. As is its need for power. But today, most of the power on the grid is not clean. To reduce carbon emissions in the energy sector, and turn the grid green, we need technological breakthroughs. And when talking about turning things green, what better source of inspiration than nature itself?
