The Polestar 2 aims to bridge the gap between car and driver, stripping away all of those little extra steps so that all you have to do is get in and drive. That's why the Polestar 2 offers wireless charging.
Wireless charging (or inductive charging) is exactly what it sounds like: a way to charge mobile devices without having to plug them in. All you have to do is place your device in the wireless-charging enabled tray under the center display, and upon arrival, it will be charged and ready for action.
How is this possible? Through the transfer of energy via electromagnetic fields, rather than a traditional cable and outlet. As long as your device is Qi-enabled (the universal standard for wireless charging from the Chinese word for “energy flow”), all you have to do is put it in the tray and drive off.
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
Hot and cold behavior: how EV batteries are affected by extreme temperatures
EVs are an integral part of a cleaner, more sustainable future. And to enable widespread electric vehicle adoption, they must be optimized for all environments and conditions. After all, whether it's 25 °C or -25 °C (77 °F or -13 °F) outside, the tailpipe emissions still need to be zero.
Staying current about current: the latest from the world of batteries
Everyone knows that EVs have batteries. Keeping up with the ever-evolving world of batteries, however, is a different story. Which is why we decided to break it down. In this series, we will explore the state of the art of EV batteries, answer the most common questions about their second-life applications, and provide a breakdown of cutting-edge battery technology.
