Chengdu production centre update

Things happen quickly, and the pace at Polestar is a blistering one. The progress happening at the production centre in Chengdu is all the proof one needs.

In addition to the distinctive architectural flourishes (courtesy of Snøhetta) which are now taking shape, production has officially started. There’s a factory within a factory at Chengdu, a production line in microcosm, which is busy assembling Polestar 1 TT (tooling trial) prototypes at the rate of two cars per day.

The universal mezzanine is in place, which will allow visitors to see the production process for themselves. Even the Brand experience centre is starting to take form. More on that later though. The ambition is to inaugurate the centre, and have it running at full production, by August 2019. More on that later too.

And even at breakneck speed, the attention to detail is never compromised. Walls are kept free of clutter, no unsightly post-its or inappropriate calendars here. Even the font on the forklifts is Polestar Unica77.

The ground was broken on November 20th, 2017. And it’s been non-stop since then. See for yourself in the gallery.
