Precept: the design
“Polestar Precept's aesthetics are rooted in cutting-edge technology rather than historical automotive references,” states Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni when asked about the design of Polestar Precept. “Our goal was to question automotive conventions and traditions and start an entirely new chapter of avant-garde design.”
Precept pulls off a balancing act of being both visionary and realistic, a logical evolution of Polestar's design language as well as a sizeable leap forward for automotive. Both the interior and the exterior of Precept feature sustainable or recycled materials, which have created new design opportunities due to their unique characteristics.
"As designers, we can contribute to the move towards sustainability by getting inspired by these new materials," Missoni continues. "With Precept, we wanted to show that sustainability and technology can be merged into stunning products."
Polestar Design Contest
Our design language isn't a “take.” It isn't an “approach.” It's what the present and future of automotive could (and in our opinion, should) look like. We take our inspiration from many different sources: aerospace, product design, science fiction, and more. And in doing so, we inspire change.
Kindred spirits: Koenigsegg
It's a small world. Especially the world of automotive visionaries who call Sweden's west coast home. In fact, they have a group chat. Sometimes they use it to coordinate a meet-up. Like the one you see here.
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.
