Five stars for Polestar 2
If you love something, let it go. Into a wall. From multiple angles.
Volvo Cars is one of our founders and by sharing their expertise with us, safety is a core competence in our cars. This shows in the excellent Euro NCAP rating of Polestar 2.
Polestar 2 recently completed the battery of safety tests that comprise the Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) and emerged with a five-star safety rating, the highest possible. And as much as it pained us to see our all-electric fastback be intentionally crashed, there’s no more thorough test of a car’s safety in all aspects than the Euro NCAP.
The Euro NCAP is an independent consumer car safety organisation. It is designed to put a vehicle through its paces, with assistance features impartially tried and tested, so that consumers can make informed choices. From a series of vehicle tests, evaluating crash performance in real-life accident scenarios, the safety rating is determined.
The number of stars does not only reflect how well the vehicle performed in the tests, but also whether the tested model's safety equipment is readily available to all European customers. According to Euro NCAP, a five-star safety rating translates to an "overall excellent performance in crash protection and well equipped with comprehensive and robust crash avoidance technology."
“Volvo Cars is one of our founders and by sharing their expertise with us, safety is a core competence in our cars. This shows in the excellent Euro NCAP rating of Polestar 2,” says Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
If you love something, let it go. It may come back with excellent safety ratings.
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.
