Thank you so much. It was an honour to even be nominated. We’re truly humbled. We’d like to thank our families, our colleagues, our fans, and our customers all over the globe. Know that this wouldn’t have been possible without you.
We’d also like to thank Sweden, for your conditions, your long history of minimalist design, and your automotive know-how. We could never have grown into what we are today without the fertile soil of Scandinavia.
And last, but certainly not least, we’d like to thank GQ for giving the Polestar 1 the Best Hybrid Sports Car award. These awards are a confirmation that we’re on to something. That we were right to trust in our products and our process.
Thank you everyone. There’s even more coming.
