Whichever way you look at it, electric cars are better than traditionally fuelled ones. However, the fuel you use to power your car can further impact its footprint. Swapping fossil fuels for electricity already cuts your CO2 emissions by 18 tonnes per year, but recharging your Polestar using renewable energy can reduce it to almost zero.
No congestion charges (save £4K per year if you live in London)
This is the reduced amount of CO2 emissions when driving a Polestar 2 compared to a similar vehicle powered by fossil fuels
The deadline year for ending the production of new petrol and diesel cars in the UK
Ushering in a new era of transparency and accountability within the automotive industry, Polestar tracks its entire supply chain through blockchain. Not only does this enable us to source and trace our cobalt, it also makes it possible to troubleshoot any issues that could compromise our sustainable and responsible standards.
Polestar monitors first-mile data to ensure raw materials are sourced in a responsible manner.
Cobalt is placed in specific bags that are signed, sealed, and given a unique digital code to track along their journey.
If a bag is unsealed or the weight doesn't match its original record, it is flagged in Polestar's software and investigated.
When the cobalt arrives in Asia, Polestar knows exactly where it came from and what happened in it's journey.
Oscar Isaac talks to CEO of Polestar UK, Jonathan Goodman, about Polestar’s commitment to sustainability, and how Blockchain is playing a critical role in cleaning up the supply chain.
