Motifs: Sebastian Kienle
Polestar’s ambitions are fundamentally linked to nature. We’ve dedicated ourselves to bringing about a change: a shift towards more sustainable electric mobility for the sake of our shared society. Preserving nature to improve the world. And if that sounds lofty and ambitious, it’s because it is.
Just driving electric cars won’t save the planet, but it does allow us to continue to be mobile without harming it.
And we’re not alone. There are others who are both inspired by nature and propelled by it, using their passion for nature to progress and excel. German triathlete Sebastian Kienle is one of them. “Whether on foot, on a bike, or by car, mobility has always played a big part in my life,” he says. A European Triple Ironman champion and world champion of both the Ironman and Double Ironman, Kienle’s career necessitates a lot of travel. He is acutely aware of the environmental impact this has and is, therefore, an outspoken advocate for electric mobility. “Just driving electric cars won’t save the planet, I’m well aware of that,” he states. “But it does allow us to continue to be mobile without harming the planet.”
“Polestar proves that sustainability and performance are not mutually exclusive,” he continues, “but actually complement each other.”
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.
