Polestar to the people.
That was the reason behind the open Q&A session which took place in Oslo’s Odeon Cinema on Thursday, January 16th. There’s no doubt we’ve made a splash in Norway, with the majority of our Polestar 2 customers (and our first European space) calling the Scandinavian nation home. But not all of our Norwegian customers can make the trip to our Gothenburg headquarters.
But they can make it to Vitaminveien 27.
So, we headed to Oslo to hold a town-hall-style evening. CEO Thomas Ingenlath, Head of Design Max Missoni, Head of R&D Hans Pehrson, and Head of Global Sales Mike Whittington made up the panel, which fielded questions from roughly 500 Polestar customers. Topics ranged from delivery to financing and everything in between.
Questions were answered. Discussions were had. And the crowd went wild (by Norwegian standards).
The Polestar Design Contest features a truly expert jury. Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni, Senior Design Manager Juan Pablo Bernal and Car Design Research Director Sam Livingstone are the ones who will evaluate every submission, pore over every detail, and ultimately determine the winners of the contest.
In May of 2021, Sydney’s Paramount House Hotel was the site of an unlikely assembly: a robotics engineer-turned-experimental musician, a surfboard shaper, an indigenous culture advocate, an electric performance car brand, and a host of other artists, creatives, and brands.
