Spotted in Hällered: Polestar 2
There’s no shortage of sightings out in Hällered. Moose, deer, wolverines, hawks, and more have all been spotted out in the wooded areas of western Sweden. Even 5-door all-electric fastbacks.
The Polestar 2 is out of the production facilities and into the world. The verification prototype cars (an early build of the car for testing purposes) are now being driven on the variegated roads of the Hällered Proving Ground and its surroundings.
At this stage, everything is being tested. This is the first real-world experience the Polestar 2 is getting, and therefore, all the input is valid. Acceleration, handling, aerodynamics, braking, charging, responsiveness, and many more aspects are being exhaustively tested, all amongst the towering pines and lashing rain of Sweden.
Now there’s something new to see in the forested groves of Hällered. And it has 660 Nm of torque.
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
All aboard: the Polestar referral programme
Enthusiasm is contagious. Upon discovering a new hobby, restaurant, or band that you cannot get enough of, the urge to spread the word to friends and family is never far behind. After all, sharing is caring. The path towards greater electric mobility is indeed a journey of shared excitement. And we know that getting behind the wheel of an EV can have the same impact. Which is why we’re launching the Polestar referral programme.
