Polestar Design Contest 2020: the final phase
There can only be two.
The inaugural Polestar Design Contest saw an avalanche of high-quality submissions from all over the world. From unique takes on personal mobility solutions, to entire ecosystems designed around future transportation infrastructure, the creativity and ability on display was amazing.
At the end of each phase, the jury had to do the (almost) impossible: select those designs, by both professional and student designers, which ticked all the boxes and merited progression to the next phase. The contest only got more grueling as it progressed. And with the bar so high already, the slightest misstep meant elimination.
In other words, to have even progressed beyond the first phase of the contest was an incredible achievement. It’s not inaccurate to say that they’re all winners.
To be more accurate, however, there are two winners. Two designers whose creations went above and beyond both the creative brief and the expectations of the jury. That stood head and shoulders above an already elevated field of competitors. Whose work will be transformed into hard models to be displayed at the first annual Polestar Design Exhibition, held in Polestar Headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden.
And we’ll announce them on November 12th.
Salon Privé 2020
Sir Winston Churchill taught us that “however beautiful the strategy, you should look at the results.” Our strategy is to obsess over every detail, in order to create cars that redefine sustainable electric performance. Polestar 1 and Polestar 2 are the results. And we share our audience’s enthusiasm for looking at them. Therefore, we took them to the former British Prime Minister’s childhood home of Blenheim Palace to take part in the Salon Privé.
2020 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition
Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath’s recent trip to Beijing doesn’t mark a return to business as usual. It doesn’t mean back to normal. If anything, it’s back to “goodbye normal”.
Precept to the people
Being a Polestar 2 owner has its advantages. Access to the world’s first in-car infotainment system with Google built in. A seamless, digital-first ownership experience. And of course, driving around in what Wired dubbed “the best EV there is right now”. However, some perks deal with another all-electric Polestar car: Polestar Precept.
