Polestar is the Electric cousin of Volvo, built to be a Northern European rival to Tesla. Swedish cars have a history of being strong and safe, Volvo invented the three point seat belt, Saab (no longer with us) built the first cars that could be dropped on their roofs and when you have snow for miles and miles you need that dependability.

Designed to reflect Volvos history the boxy nature of the car is a modern interpretation of the the classic. Safety is key, using the battery as a platform to create an amazingly strong crash structure, and using the Polestar Spoc to divert debris around the car and not intrude on the survival cell or battery pack.

All the interior is geared to towards the driver, the front window having a very pillar boxy feel. This adds a feeling of driver engagement, all the control are set like you are in the cockpit of a plane, adding to that sense of emersion. Adjustable suspension and competition brakes will be available on the performance pack which will really make the car bite in the corners. Reviews from magazines who have driven it already can't give it enough praise.
