We do what we do because we love it. We’re united by an obsession with design and a dedication to electric mobility. Every completed car, every space that throws open its doors, every interaction with a fan: these all feel like awards to us.
But what’s even more like an award are the awards. The Chinese media has recently seen fit to recognise Polestar, and we’re humbled. Awards like these are confirmations; leading the way as a guiding star sometimes means you’re operating, more or less, on your own. It’s gratifying to know that the outside world also likes what you’re doing.
So thank you, Chinese press. We do what we do because we love it. We’re glad you love it too.

The Overview Effect: a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from outer space. Those who have experienced it describe a new understanding of the uniqueness, fragility, and relative smallness of our one and only home. And while it’s easy to imagine the impact this must have; it seems that spaceflight is a prerequisite. Which is why we sat down with Karen Nyberg.
A core principle of sustainability is future-proofing. Keeping items in use saves energy and reduces waste, as they’re thrown away or replaced less often. There are any number of ways to ensure a product doesn’t become obsolete. Durable materials. Timeless design. And OTA software updates, like the latest one available for Polestar 2.
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.
