It wasn’t easy leaving the Arctic Circle for the Mediterranean, but the Polestar 1 steering software won’t test itself.
Therefore, the Polestar engineers and technicians traded pine trees for palm trees, traded their boots for flip-flops, and left Jokkmokk (with its May temperatures of 9 degrees) for Barcelona. We made sure to document the process, which you can see in the gallery.
The aim of a halo car is to capture people’s imaginations. To get them talking. And keep them talking. In that sense, Polestar 1 has more than fulfilled its purpose. Now an era is drawing to a close. To commemorate its life in the limelight, we decided to enhance its star qualities further. Because if you’re going to say goodbye, you might as well do it in style.
China is the world’s largest EV market. It’s also Polestar’s second home, the site of all of our manufacturing facilities, and the place that enables us to realise our technological and design ambitions on the scale required to truly drive (see what we did there) the e-mobility revolution.
