Driving change: Polestar test drives
Too often, test drives are a compromise. This is the first time behind the wheel of a car you’ve been looking forward to driving. It should be exciting. It should be fun. Instead, you’re accompanied by a salesperson with an agenda. It’s like riding a rollercoaster with someone who spends the whole ride talking about how much the ticket cost.
We’re setting out to change that. A Polestar test drive will have you both literally and figuratively in the driver’s seat, tailoring the experience to your preferences before it’s even begun.
Firstly, the location is up to you. We stated earlier that you shouldn’t need a car to buy a car. That’s just as true for the test drive. No public transportation pilgrimages required. We’ll come to you. If a little taste of the brand is wanted before you hit the open road, you’re welcome to start your test drive at the nearest Polestar space.
Secondly, the only agenda that exists is the one you set. Prior to the test drive, a quick log in allows you to select the areas of focus: which features you’re curious about, want help with, and so on. If you want a half-hour guided tour of the precedent-setting Polestar 2 infotainment system with Google built-in, then a half-hour guided tour is what you’ll get.
Thirdly, and arguably most importantly, the drive will be up to you. 60 minutes are on the clock. Aside from that, and the fact that you need to bring the Polestar 2 back, the rest is up to you. Test one pedal drive in city traffic. Feel the instant acceleration on open highways. Experience the responsive handling on winding country roads.
Test drives should be about the drive. At Polestar, they will be.
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.
All aboard: the Polestar referral programme
Enthusiasm is contagious. Upon discovering a new hobby, restaurant, or band that you cannot get enough of, the urge to spread the word to friends and family is never far behind. After all, sharing is caring. The path towards greater electric mobility is indeed a journey of shared excitement. And we know that getting behind the wheel of an EV can have the same impact. Which is why we’re launching the Polestar referral programme.
