Thank you so much. It was an honour to even be nominated. We’re truly humbled. We’d like to thank our families, our colleagues, our fans, and our customers all over the globe. Know that this wouldn’t have been possible without you.
We’d also like to thank Sweden, for your conditions, your long history of minimalist design, and your automotive know-how. We could never have grown into what we are today without the fertile soil of Scandinavia.
And last, but certainly not least, we’d like to thank GQ for giving the Polestar 1 the Best Hybrid Sports Car award. These awards are a confirmation that we’re on to something. That we were right to trust in our products and our process.
Thank you everyone. There’s even more coming.
In May of 2021, Sydney’s Paramount House Hotel was the site of an unlikely assembly: a robotics engineer-turned-experimental musician, a surfboard shaper, an indigenous culture advocate, an electric performance car brand, and a host of other artists, creatives, and brands.
It’s the goal of every carmaker to get people in their cars. There are a seemingly endless number of catchphrases, taglines and mottos in the world of automotive, stretching from the cliché to the incomprehensible. But if one reads between the lines, the message is clear: this car is good. Get in it.
The aim of a halo car is to capture people’s imaginations. To get them talking. And keep them talking. In that sense, Polestar 1 has more than fulfilled its purpose. Now an era is drawing to a close. To commemorate its life in the limelight, we decided to enhance its star qualities further. Because if you’re going to say goodbye, you might as well do it in style.
