The first shipment of customer cars has arrived in Europe, bound for Sweden and Norway. To Polestar 2 customers, this is surely welcome news, something to get excited about. The wait until they can sit behind the wheel of their all-electric fastback has just gotten shorter. The handovers are being prepped. The cars are being serviced. Ownership is approaching.
They say that the true joy is in the giving, not the receiving. We’re thrilled to see customer cars arrive in Zeebrugge, the bustling port which lies just outside the picturesque Belgian city of Bruges. Swedish and Norwegian customers will be delighted to get their Polestar 2. And we’ll be delighted to deliver them. There are more ships already en route with vehicles destined for our other markets.
These customer cars are rolling off the ship as we speak. And before long, they’ll be rolling along the highways, streets, lanes and alleyways of Europe. With North America and China to follow.
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.
Polestar has never gone it alone. We’ve had plenty of collaborators, kindred spirits, and fellow EV enthusiasts with us on our journey towards sustainable electric mobility. And now, in Gores Guggenheim Inc., we have a new partner. One with whom we intend to go public, pursuant to a business combination agreement which we have signed.
