It’s been two years. Two years since the world learned that electric cars could be premium, sustainable, and high performance, without compromising on design. Two years since the reveal of the first car in the world to feature an Android Automotive infotainment system. Two years since premium was redefined with vegan upholstery and reconstructed wood. And to call those two years eventful would be an understatement.

We took the Polestar 2 to the Geneva motor show.
We took the Polestar 2 to Google I/O to meet the developers and let them have a first-hand look at the infotainment system.
The verification prototype vehicles were being tested at the Hällered Proving Ground .
We went to Frankfurt to show the Polestar 2 to the attendees of the IAA as part of our “2 on Tour” roadshow.
Polestar 2 met the press and production started.
The first Polestar 2 was delivered to our very first customer in Sweden.
Polestar 2 won the Insider 2020 Car of the Year.
Polestar 2 won the Edie Sustainability innovation award .
In the two short years since Polestar 2 was revealed, our fully electric fastback has had a remarkable impact. And this is only the beginning.
Sometimes, it’s okay to judge a book by its cover. It is winning design awards, after all.
1955 was a year for innovation and design. It was the first year the colour pink became a popular part of men's fashion. It was the year that UHF (Ultra High Frequency) television was developed. 1955 also saw the very first Red Dot award. In 2021, 66 years later, Polestar 2 has received the Red Dot “Best of the Best” award for product design.
