Motifs: Sebastian Kienle

Our 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.”

Perspective is everything. Travelling by plane is a blast for those who have only ever travelled by car. It’s mundane for astronauts. Electric driving is clearly the superior experience in our opinion. But we make electric cars. How do former petrol-heads feel about it? Android developers with an interest in driving? People who take road trips from Bavaria to Schleswig-Holstein and back, with a brief detour in Finland? What are their thoughts on Polestar 2?
