Summer Highlights 2021
This summer was marked by collaborations, campaigns, and events. And like every summer, we did it the Polestar way.
Collaborated with Highsnobiety at the Paramount House Hotel in Sydney (Australia) where robotics engineer and musician, Moritz Simon Geist, took components from Polestar 2 to create music, and then performed it digitally.
Announced Polestar 3, our next car and the next evolution of Polestar’s design language and journey, will be built in Ridgeville, South Carolina.
The Art4Art campaign was launched allowing collectors to trade their art for a special edition of our hybrid performance vehicle, the Polestar 1. A collector’s item.
Our second Polestar Design Contest was launched with the theme Progress.
Went back to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed and brought with us our entire story. Polestar 1, in its golden limited-edition colour, the Experimental Polestar 2, and the Precept.
Opened a fast-charge station at Mjölby, strategically located on the E4 between Stockholm and Gothenburg in Sweden.
Premiered Episodes 1 and 2 of “Precept: From Concept to Car”, our Precept documentary.
Went to CAKE World’s Race and took the Experimental Polestar 2 with us.
Invited journalists to test drive our new single motor Polestar 2 models.
Finally, we revealed our exclusive web shop, and home, for a limited time only to the flagship Makka – Polestaredition by CAKE. Polestar Additions is our newest digital space for our take on all sorts of lifestyle products.
Not that we’re complaining, but we didn’t get to do a lot of sunbathing…
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.
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.
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.
