The discipline of ‘less is more’ brings every intention to the forefront. The result, when correctly employed, is balance, timeless style and, simplified elegance. The Scandinavian inspired design of the Polestar 2 marries minimalism with modernism with captivating efficiency. With elegant long lines, a wide grille, and carved deep contours, Polestar 2’s proportions signal a futuristic attitude lead by technological advancements. In harmony with its statement-making exterior, the Polestar 2’s interior entwines two dynamic key-lines bisecting the space. The interior space is elegantly refined and defined by modern and lightweight proportions. The resulting contemporary and cleanly appointed interior completes the crisp and sporty presentation.
The design execution is centered by the touchscreen and instrument panel on the interior dash. Exceptionally sound ergonomics make every facet of entry, use, and drive in the Polestar 2 an unparalleled pleasure. Additionally, the Polestar 2 represents another step forward in the global movement towards sustainable mobility in using select materials and processes to produce uncompromised fit and finishes.
Evident on all roads, and especially curvy challenges, you feel the Polestar 2’s stiff handling, thanks to the MacPherson strut front and multilink rear suspension that combines to provide a high-quality ride complete with excellent handling characteristics for all-weather, all-wheel drive. Following the likes of industry leaders like Stella McCartney in fashion, the Polestar 2 features a vegan interior and construction and materials devoid of any animal-derived products of any sort. A key development in this endeavor is the WeaveTech upholstery, which is lighter than leather and more durable, and easier to clean than most vinyl. WeaveTech also reduces the concentration of the chemical compound, phthalates from just 1 percent, from a typical 45 percent, to provide a safer interior environment.
Ventilated Nappa leather upholstery is also available in the Polestar 2 for the folks who prefer such. The leather used is chrome-free in a nod towards sustainability. From its unassuming modern design to the latest technology, both inside and out, the Polestar brand is for those with an eye to the future. Polestar.
