Polestar has announced it will produce the Precept Concept, because the public said “We want it”.
Polestar, we remind, is a performance-EV brand jointly owned by Volvo Car Group and Geely. It is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden and builds vehicles in Chengdu, China.
Automakers usually create concept cars to showcase them at automotive shows, not for hitting the road. This time, it turned out differently with the Polestar Precept Concept: the show car will go into production.
Details about the price, driving range, timing, battery capacity are scarce so far. We know Polestar will construct a new carbon neutral factory, somewhere in China, to make the model.
As for the markets, the Precept will be naturally available in China and most likely in the United States.
The Polestar Precept Concept represents environmentalism and uses sustainable materials, such as reclaimed fishing nets, recycled cork, and a flax-based composite. Expect a production vehicle will use them too.
We hope the Precept Concept’s goodies, such as rear and side cameras, radar sensors with text, LED side markers, flush door handles, a lidar, an minimalist-designed infotainment system will mostly carry over to the production vehicle.
