Polestar's chassis team is tuning the Polestar 1 handling balance in extreme winter conditions. Polestar's chassis engineer and test driver Joakim Rydholm is leading the handling evaluation process.

Polestar 1 winter test

Watch how the Öhlins shock absorbers combined with different rear anti-roll bar settings are tested and evaluated at high speeds. Each setting step is half a millimeter in difference, from a 20 to a 25-millimeter diameter. Top speed in the test drive is 200 km/h (124 mph). The Polestar 1 prototype car used in the test is stripped of all driver support systems so that the test driver can feel the exact base chassis settings. These tests are performed on a closed test track located in Sweden, just inside the Arctic Circle. The temperature is -25°C (-13 °F).

When it comes to dedication, one area we remain focused on is defining a new premium. It encompasses design, innovation and, of course, sustainability. That’s why it’s so gratifying when someone recognizes our approach. Because when it comes to confirmation and endorsement, there is no greater seal of approval than being named the best in all the aspects you value the most.
