Motifs: Sebastian Kienle
Polestar’s ambitions are fundamentally linked to nature. We’ve dedicated ourselves to bringing about a change: a shift towards more sustainable electric mobility for the sake of our shared society. Preserving nature to improve the world. And if that sounds lofty and ambitious, it’s because it is.
Just driving electric cars won’t save the planet, but it does allow us to continue to be mobile without harming it.
And we’re not alone. There are others who are both inspired by nature and propelled by it, using their passion for nature to progress and excel. German triathlete Sebastian Kienle is one of them. “Whether on foot, on a bike, or by car, mobility has always played a big part in my life,” he says. A European Triple Ironman champion, and world champion of both the Ironman and Double Ironman, Kienle’s career necessitates a lot of travel. He is acutely aware of the environmental impact this has and is therefore an outspoken advocate for electric mobility. “Just driving electric cars won’t save the planet, I’m well aware of that,” he states. “But it does allow us to continue to be mobile without harming the planet.”
“Polestar proves that sustainability and performance are not mutually exclusive,” he continues, “but actually complement each other.”

Think globally, act locally. A phrase that encourages people to consider the entire planet when making decisions. That even on the individual level, choices can have a global impact. Something that Florian Jung fully believes in.
