Your wish is our next project.
Polestar Precept was conceived as a commitment car. The antidote to a concept car, Precept was our answer to some pressing questions facing our industry. How can we be more sustainable? Do we need to sacrifice aesthetics in the name of the environment? How can we make the in-car experience more connected, intuitive, and contextualized? Concept cars that are Hollywood dreams will never answer these questions. We built Precept to show that this was our take on these issues. This was our answer to the riddle of more sustainable, connected, electric performance.
The response to Precept was all the confirmation we needed. The sustainable, upcycled and animal-free materials we used in its construction showed that we designed a new premium when it came to aesthetics. The infotainment system (again, with Google built in) is more informative and responsive than ever before. The public saw this and were not shy about saying they wanted Precept to be more than a mission statement on four wheels. And frankly, we agree.
So, we're putting Precept into production.
Polestar has never gone it alone. We’ve had plenty of collaborators, kindred spirits, and fellow EV enthusiasts with us on our journey towards sustainable electric mobility. And now, in Gores Guggenheim Inc., we have a new partner. One with whom we intend to go public, pursuant to a business combination agreement which we have signed.
Everything we produce today has an environmental footprint. EVs are no exception. But that doesn't have to be the case. Over time, we can change how cars are made. And you can influence that progress. Because what you choose to buy is what the industry becomes. To enable us all to choose the greenest path, we all need to understand the scope of that footprint.
