Polestar’s chassis team is tuning the Polestar 1 handling balance in extreme winter conditions. Polestar’s chassis engineer and test driver, Joakim Rydholm, is leading the handling evaluating process.

Polestar 1 winter test

Watch how the Öhlins shock absorbers combined with different rear anti-roll bar settings in high speed are tested and evaluated. Each setting step is half a millimeter in difference, from a 20 to a 25-millimeter diameter. Top speed in the test drive is 200 km/h. The Polestar 1 prototype car used in the test is stripped of all driver support systems in order for the test driver to feel the exact base chassis settings. These tests are performed in a closed test track located in Sweden, just inside the Arctic Circle. Temperature is -25°C.

What defines art is an age-old question. While some art is created merely to be aesthetically appealing, some is meant to be interpretive. Some pieces ask questions, others make statements. However, they all inspire a reaction. Much like Polestar 1. So, why not use one to buy the other?
