Great feedback led to production of Polestar Precept in China
The stunning Polestar Precept has been confirmed to go into production. We were as certain as the company that this would make it into production as they themselves determined it as a commitment car, not a concept one.
The cool Precept is a great example of uniting digital technology and the use of sustainable materials both inside and outside of the car.
Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath said, “Stunning. Spectacular. Cutting-edge. We’d like to see it on the road!’ – this is what the press wrote about Precept and the public said, ‘We want it’, so we decided to build it. Consumers want to see change from this industry – not just dreams. Now, Precept becomes an even stronger statement. We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our cars and our business. The aim has to be climate neutrality, even though I recognize that is a long-term goal.”
Produced in its home market China, Polestar have commenced production on the Precept at new production facility with great aim to ensure the facility functions carbon neutral.
The interior of Polestar Precept features a mix of sustainable materials including recycled PET bottles, reclaimed fishing nets and recycled cork vinyl. A flax-based composite is featured in many interior and some exterior parts.
“China is a home market for Polestar and we recognize the increasingly important drive for greater sustainability here,” continues Ingenlath, speaking at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition 2020. “With this new factory, we will again raise the bar, aiming to produce the most advanced and premium electric car in China with the lowest carbon footprint.”
No exact timeline on when units will roll off the production line and into garages yet, we’ll let you know once the company announces it.
