Clarifications with Klarén: redefining premium materials
We’re committed to driving the change towards a climate-neutral future, a new era of sustainable electric mobility. But such change will not occur if we rely on the same old paradigms, the same old tune. Or materials.
Change, however, doesn't have to mean compromise, a choice of a great in car experience or the environment. We believe that sustainable materials can create new design opportunities and redefine the meaning of premium.
The outcome: Polestar 2. The car features vegan upholstery as standard, its interior features recycled plastics and panels made from reconstructed wood. And for future production models, we’ve already identified a range of new, innovative solutions. Because, as we said, the same old tune won’t work. Sustainability needs a new soundtrack.
Polestar Head of Sustainability Fredrika Klarén clarifies it all above.
Creating a “15-minute city”: Will Melbourne be able to bring its communities closer?
It’s the year 2050 and Melbourne is waking up to another day of life on Earth. In the past decades, the cityscape has seen many improvements. Bikeways are broad and well-connected, parks are lush and nearby, and supporting your locals is easier than ever. With all the essentials accessible by foot or bike, urban life is inclusive and efficient. That’s the plan, at least. The Melbourne Plan.
