It’s been two years. Two years since the world learned that electric cars could be premium, sustainable, and high performance, without compromising on design. Two years since the reveal of the first car in the world to feature an Android Automotive infotainment system. Two years since premium was redefined with vegan upholstery and reconstructed wood.

We took the Polestar 2 to the Geneva motor show.
We took the Polestar 2 to Google I/O to meet the developers and let them have a first-hand look at the infotainment system.
The verification prototype vehicles were being tested at the Hällered Proving Ground .
We went to Frankfurt to show the Polestar 2 to the attendees of the IAA as part of our “2 on Tour” roadshow.
Polestar 2 met the press and production started.
The first Polestar 2 was delivered to our very first customer in Sweden.
Polestar 2 won the Insider 2020 Car of the Year.
Polestar 2 won the Edie Sustainability innovation award .
In the two short years since Polestar 2 was revealed, our fully electric fastback has had a remarkable impact. And this is only the beginning.
Film festivals play out in unique places. Sundance takes place in the picturesque Wasatch Mountains. Toronto’s TIFF Bell Lightbox is a block-long complex which hosts the city’s namesake festival. And the Cannes Film Festival unfolds on one of the world’s most recognisable waterfronts. But for all the features that those venues have, there’s one thing they’re lacking.
Our world is one of systems. Society functions as it does because of these complex, far-flung networks of production, distribution, and consumption. But what happens when these systems fail? When a component is removed, examined, and recontextualised? These questions are what fascinate Norwegian-German artist Yngve Holen, who has given new context to several objects (a Polestar 2 headlight among them) in his latest solo exhibition.
