Polestar Precept: From Concept to Car, Episode 5
On with the wind.
Aerodynamics have always played a large part in automotive. With EVs, wind takes on even more importance, with aspects like drag having a substantial effect on range. Given Polestar’s aerospace influences, and a design language that optimised aerodynamic efficiency from the beginning, it’s no surprise that Precept boasts impressive airflow credentials.
The drawing board is where those elements are created. The wind tunnel is where they’re tested. See them fire up the fans in episode five of “Polestar Precept: From Concept to Car”.
