To our Polestar family around the world,
In these testing times, we wanted to keep you informed of how we are doing our part. We are all in this together and as ever, the interests and safety of our employees, partners and customers is our absolute priority.
Our thoughts go out to all of you who have been affected by this unprecedented event. We are indebted to the heroic work of all doctors, nurses, public health experts, researchers and public servants who are fighting to protect our global community.
In our second home in China, we implemented tight measures from the beginning of this year to look after our staff and their families.
As well as temperature screenings and thoroughly disinfecting our factories, we provided masks and medical check-ups for all our employees. This helped us to avoid any cases of Coronavirus in our teams in China.
In Europe and North America, we have learned from this experience and all Polestar team members are equipped and empowered to work from home.
Our employees are committed to the challenge we have to protect one another.
We remain equally dedicated to deliver on the promises we have made to you, our customers.
Our careful precautions and planning over the last months mean that we have safely commenced production on the Polestar 2 this week.
We will face further challenges in the coming weeks however we are fully dedicated to continuing to support and protect our Polestar global community.
Thank you all for supporting us in this dream opportunity over the past three years. We will continue to strive to achieve with passion and purpose.
It is the human spirit in rising to this challenge that inspires us to keep innovating and driving for change, to tackle our future challenges and stay truthful to our ambition.
When in Rovaniemi
Do as the locals do. Words of wisdom that any seasoned traveller is familiar with. They don’t just govern behavior, however. They speak to the importance of having an open mind, embracing new customs, and adapting to one’s surroundings. There are equivalents in all languages. In English, one is told that “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”. It counts for the Italian capital, just as it counts for northern Finland. Which is exactly where we headed this winter.
