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.

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.
