The Polestar 2 aims to bridge the gap between car and driver, stripping away all of those little extra steps so that all you have to do is get in and drive. That’s why the Polestar 2 offers wireless charging.
Wireless charging (or inductive charging) is exactly what it sounds like: a way to charge mobile devices without having to plug them in. All you have to do is place your device in the wireless-charging enabled tray under the centre display, and upon arrival, it will be charged and ready for action.
How is this possible? Through the transfer of energy via electromagnetic fields, rather than a traditional cable and outlet. As long as your device is Qi-enabled (the universal standard for wireless charging from the Chinese word for “energy flow”), all you have to do is put it in the tray and drive on.
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.
There are all types of awards out there. The Foot in Mouth Award, The Golden Bagel Award and IG Nobel Prize, just to mention a few. While we haven’t won any of these particular accolades, we have received our share of awards. The latest celebrate our approach to design.
