The next stage of infotainment
We partnered with Google to develop a seamless infotainment experience for the Polestar 2, powered by Android. We recognised certain limitations in the automotive world when it came to the in-car experience: navigation was lacking, apps were pale shadows of their smartphone equivalents, and the less said about speech recognition, the better.
The next stage will build on the current connected experience in the Polestar 2. The Google Assistant will evolve to be an even more helpful co-pilot, using advanced speech technology to expand to more languages, understand local accents and provide a more personalised experience. Video streaming from your favourite apps and services will be made available while you charge your vehicle. Even lighting, climate, and seating preferences will automatically adjust for a seamless driving experience.
This is a previously unseen in-car experience. And the first glimpse of it will be in a Polestar.

Precious metal: the bonded aluminium unibody of Polestar 5
Aluminium doesn’t get enough credit. Yes, it sees widespread use in a variety of everyday items like cans, siding, and utensils. It may technically be a common metal, but it’s plenty precious to us. Not least because it’s lightweight, rigid, and highly recyclable. Especially when it’s bonded. Like in the case of Polestar 5.
