In these testing times, we wanted to keep you informed of how we are doing our part. We are all in this together and, as ever, the safety of our employees, partners and customers is our highest priority.
In our second home in China, we implemented tight measures from the beginning of this year to look after our staff and their families.
As well as temperature screenings and thoroughly disinfecting our factories, we provided masks and medical check-ups for all employees. This helped us to avoid any cases of Coronavirus in our teams in China.
In Europe and North America we have learned from this experience and all Polestar team members are equipped and empowered to work from home.
Our employees are committed to the challenge we have to protect one another.
We remain equally dedicated to deliver on the promises we have made to you, our customers.
Our precautions and planning over the last months mean that we have begun Polestar 2 production this week.
We will face further challenges in the coming weeks and we will continue to support and protect our Polestar global community.
Thank you all for supporting us in this dream opportunity over the past three years. We will continue to strive to achieve with passion and purpose.
We are indebted to the heroic work of all the doctors, nurses, public health experts, researchers and public servants who are fighting to protect our global community.
It is the human spirit in rising to this challenge that inspires us to keep innovating and driving for change, to tackle our future challenges and stay truthful to our ambition.
The Overview Effect: a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from outer space. Those who have experienced it describe a new understanding of the uniqueness, fragility, and relative smallness of our one and only home. And while it’s easy to imagine the impact this must have; it seems that spaceflight is a prerequisite. Which is why we sat down with Karen Nyberg.
The most innovative ideas are brought about through creative collaboration. Ideas that have the power to change; to revolutionise the status quo and spark social and environmental change. By connecting thoughts, experiences, skills, and intuition, visionary endeavours, like design, can be elevated from good to great.
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.
