Your wish is our next project.
Polestar Precept was conceived as a commitment car. The antidote to a concept car, Precept was our answer to some pressing questions facing our industry. How can we be more sustainable? Do we need to sacrifice aesthetics in the name of the environment? How can we make the in-car experience more connected, intuitive, and contextualised? Concept cars that are Hollywood dreams will never answer these questions. We built Precept to show that this was our take on these issues. This was our answer to the riddle of more sustainable, connected, electric performance.
The response to Precept was all the confirmation we needed. The sustainable, upcycled and vegan materials we used in its construction showed that we've designed a new premium when it came to aesthetics. The infotainment system (again, with Google built in) is more informative and responsive than ever before. The public saw this and were not shy about saying they wanted Precept to be more than a mission statement on four wheels. And frankly, we agree.
So, we’re putting Precept into production.
In May of 2021, Sydney’s Paramount House Hotel was the site of an unlikely assembly: a robotics engineer-turned-experimental musician, a surfboard shaper, an indigenous culture advocate, an electric performance car brand, and a host of other artists, creatives, and brands.
Circulor is a company that works with blockchain technology to trace materials and help companies achieve more sustainable and transparent supply chains. We spoke with CEO and co-founder Doug Johnson-Poensgen about traceability-as-a-service, proving responsible sourcing, and the LCA report that was recently released by Polestar.
China is the world’s largest EV market. It’s also Polestar’s second home, the site of all of our manufacturing facilities, and the place that enables us to realise our technological and design ambitions on the scale required to truly drive (see what we did there) the e-mobility revolution.
