You can’t win if you don’t play.
But what if the game is built for a different time? If it’s reliant on outdated traditions and conventions? Who would want to win a game like that? Who would even want to play it? We at Polestar certainly wouldn’t.
We’d look to change the game.
We’d go all in on electrification. We’d insist on innovation. We’d redefine the old and improve upon the existing. And in doing so, we’d alter the rules of engagement. Polestar 1 was our first move in this new game. And it’s just been awarded Autocar Magazine’s 2020 Game Changer Award.
Polestar 1 is “an extraordinarily confident product, and a mission statement on wheels,” states Autocar. “It’s never dull to drive – far from it – and it’s an ability to travel meaningful distances on electric power alone that makes it unique in the class.”
If the game is built on outdated, now irrelevant rules, don’t refuse to play. Change the game itself. And in doing so, win.
The most innovative ideas are brought about through creative collaboration. Ideas that have the power to change; to revolutionise the status quo and spark social and environmental change. By connecting thoughts, experiences, skills, and intuition, visionary endeavours, like design, can be elevated from good to great.
Time is running out. To stay within the 1.5-degree target, we need to take immediate action. In the quest for circularity, transitioning to electric transport is one of several imperative steps. This step calls for a change in behaviour, from people, businesses, and governments. Because frankly, we don’t have time not to.
