Polestar to the people.
That was the reason behind the open Q&A session that took place in Oslo's Odeon Cinema on Thursday, January 16th. There's no doubt we've made a splash in Norway, with the majority of our Polestar 2 customers (and our first European space) calling the Scandinavian nation home. But not all of our Norwegian customers can make the trip to our Gothenburg headquarters.
But they can make it to Vitaminveien 27.
So, we headed to Oslo to hold a town-hall-style evening. CEO Thomas Ingenlath, Head of Design Max Missoni, Head of R&D Hans Pehrson, and Head of Global Sales Mike Whittington made up the panel, which fielded questions from roughly 500 Polestar customers. Topics ranged from delivery to financing and everything in between.
Questions were answered. Discussions were had. And the crowd went wild (by Norwegian standards).

The Overview Effect: a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from outer space.

And while it’s easy to imagine the impact this must have; it seems that spaceflight is a prerequisite. Which is why we sat down with Karen Nyberg.
