EuroCarBody Award 2019
We’re body positive here at Polestar. Take the bodies of our own products, for example. Two entirely different and equally unique examples of pure, progressive electrified performance cars.
And we’re not the only body-positive game in town when it comes to car engineering. EuroCarBody is a global car body benchmarking conference, meeting annually in the German salt spring city of Bad Nauheim. This is where automotive car body engineers meet to examine the development, performance and production processes for car bodies.
Not only that, it’s also the forum for the awarding of “the highest accolade in car body engineering worldwide”, the EuroCarBody Award. Broken down into the premium and volume segments, the award goes to cars which demonstrate innovative production developments in body construction. Which the Polestar 1 boasts not a few of.
Praised for both the high amount of carbon fibre involved in its construction, and the way that it acts as “an engineering study to learn about and promote the application of this material and its production”, the Polestar 1 took home 2nd place in the premium category.
We were thrilled that the Polestar 1 was recognized by such a peerless group of professional engineers/body enthusiasts. Every body is beautiful in its own way, carbon fibre or not.
All aboard: the Polestar Referral programme
Enthusiasm is contagious. Upon discovering a new hobby, restaurant, or band that you cannot get enough of, the urge to spread the word to friends and family is never far behind. After all, sharing is caring. The path towards greater electric mobility is indeed a journey of shared excitement. And we know that getting behind the wheel of an EV can have the same impact. Which is why we’re launching the Polestar referral programme.
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
The importance of impatience: Polestar 2 sustainability upgrades
Patience. A famously good thing. There is no end to the folksy phrases and nuggets of wisdom that emphasise the importance of being good at waiting. Patience, it’s said, is a virtue. But when it comes to righting environmental wrongs, it’s also a luxury. One we don’t have. Which is the reasoning behind the Polestar 2 sustainability upgrades.
