Precept EV to sit atop Polestar’s range

Vehicle development is underway to build on the brand’s sustainability ambitions, with a new state-of-the-art production facility planned in China.
In September Polestar confirmed it would put the Precept concept car revealed in February into production — at a date to be revealed. For the uninitiated few, Polestar is the electric performance car brand founded by Volvo Cars and Geely Holding.

The brand launched in 2017 with the Polestar 1, a low-volume electric performance hybrid GT with 462 kW, 738 lb·ft (1000 N·m), and an electric-only range of 70 mi (112 km) — the longest of any hybrid car in the world at the time.

The Polestar 2, a Tesla Model 3 competitor and the company’s first fully electric, higher-volume premium car, launched in some markets from the middle of 2020. The fastback comes with 304 kW and 487 lb·ft (660 N·m), all-wheel drive, and a 78-kW·h battery pack in its first year of production.

The Precept started life as a manifesto to illustrate the brand’s future vision and was described as a commitment car, not a concept car. Showcasing the Swedish electric performance brand’s future design direction, Precept also highlights Polestar’s path for digital technology and the use of innovative sustainable materials, inside and out.

A positive reception for the Precept convinced Polestar to build it, said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO: “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.
