Polestar talks safety
We played it safe. As a company made up of car enthusiasts, one of our favorite things is talking to people about our products. However, the current state of affairs means that large gatherings are to be avoided. And even though we'd like nothing better than to assemble a bunch of Polestar fans and talk their ears off about the safety innovations that can be found in the Polestar 2, it wouldn't be wise. Ironically, it'd be unsafe.
So we took our innovative digital-first approach, already a hallmark of our brand, and applied it to this event, making it a webinar for newsletter subscribers to livestream (and putting it on YouTube for everyone to see).
Featuring a panel made up of Polestar Head of R&D Hans Pehrson and Polestar 2 Product Manager Beatrice Simonsson, the webinar was filmed in the showroom of our Gothenburg HQ, and featured presentations on Polestar 2 safety features, along with a Q&A session.
There's no better time to play it safe than when talking about safety. See the webinar here.
Predicting the near future: Polestar and Balenciaga
The near future has been a muse for countless designers. It provides a framework in which creativity can thrive alongside an inbuilt sense of realism. The Polestar Design Contest and Polestar Precept were some of our near-future explorations. “Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow” is one of Balenciaga's. And they've asked Polestar to be a part of it.
Polestar 2 LCA report
All in. A colloquial expression meaning that one is fully committed to something. In poker, it also means to bet everything you have before revealing your hand. And though we lean towards the former when using this idiom to reference our own pursuit of sustainable electric performance, the latter works too. Time to put our cards on the table. Starting with our LCA report.
