Hi. Welcome. To pollster, headquarters, here in Gothenburg, I'm Jatin Couture the CEOs assistant, and we'll give you a quick behind-the-scenes tour, of our world here at Polestar let's get going, this. Is. Paul Starr one an electric. Performance, hybrid with. 600, horsepower and 1000, Newton meters of torque what, makes this car really special is that, you can drive up to 150, kilometers pure electric, we're, really proud of this car and this, one next to it this was the first-ever driving prototype, of pulsar. We're, in the cube now this is where we make all our big decisions for the company ah you. Can see Thomas getting ready for the big show. Hello. Kiri what are you up to. Over. Here in the lab this, is where all of our awesome, engineer sir how's it going Sofia hmm, nice. The. Guys over here are super busy creating, our customer, and commercial, office as we begin rolling out cars, we. Are bringing cars to the market with a totally new approach post. Our customers, will, never have to queue at a service reception, or, struggle, with complicated, buying processes, there's. Also a huge interest in our subscription, service the, full no hassle, Pulstar experience, on one monthly bill, check. That you have two minutes I'm really sorry guys the, show starts soon we better get a move on. This. Is the quiet selfish. The, Polestar production, center in chengdu is nearly, ready for poster wants to start rolling off the line it's, getting so exciting. This. Is where, our brand team brainstorm. And create, our oven guide identity, is everything on track season as always great, to hear and over, here we. Have a poster space retail, lab, at. Our spaces, our customers, and the general public will, be able to meet product experts and get closer to our products, and our brands. We're. In the process currently of setting, up spaces all over, the world on high streets in cities near, you. That's. All we have time for folks, enjoy. The show, please. Welcome Thomas, England lat chief, executive officer of poster. Thank, you. Thanks. Welcome. Thank you. Thank, you, thanks. A lot good afternoon welcome, welcome. To the launch of, pollster. To, knock. On to. It with you through our headquarters. So you saw the awesome, space, you. Met some of the great people working there and yes. You said hello to Kiwi, our dog. Now. This. Is where we are building the. New electric. Car brand, Polestar. Poster. Was established, to support, the change towards. Sustainable, mobility. We. Are convinced, that, this is the right way, this. Is the, right direction to, protect. This planet to. Preserve it for the future generations. We. Are, enthusiastic. About the. New technology, and, the. Fun and the joy that, it will bring with. The electric propulsion to, the, truly modern, driving, experience. Without. Standing design a. Powerful. Electric, performance, and the. Seamless integration, into. Your digital life. Poster. Will be an intriguing, addition, to, the new world of electric. Cars. We. Are digitally. Connected. To our customers. Nothing. Nobody, in between all. Communication. All interaction. Will, be between. Pulsed and you direct. We. Will offer a modern subscription. Model, we're. Just like you know it from your phone with, one monthly. Bill everything, is transparent. Hassle-free. No. Surprises. Postal. Spaces. They. Will be downtown. It's. Part, of the community, and we. Love that our, customers. Can experience, their, firsthand. Our. Products. They. Can get, the. Help that they need the personal help and, of. Course. Take. A poster for a write. The. Places they are beautiful. They are open. Inspiring. Inviting. Just like this one here the. One in Oslo that we are building right now by. 2020. We will have 60. Spaces, up and running in. Towns. Like, London. Munich. Shanghai. Los, Angeles, all, across, the globe. Now. This day I have, been looking forward to for, a really long. Time. It. Is three years ago. Where. We found a home for a design that, was truly, dear. To my heart, it, was great. Powerful, thing, anything. But, mainstream a, true. Free spirit, and as free.

Spirit, Tend to it just really, simply, did not fit in now. Luckily. We, just had invented. A brand where things that do not fit the convention, will, find their home Polestar. So. This. Great, awesome, design became, our pollster, - and we're. Gonna show it to you in a minute. But. There's another reason why this is a truly exciting day for us here today. Because. Pasta. - is our. First pure, electric, pole star a true, battery. Electric, car now. Pasta, is dedicated. To, electro. Mobility we, are the electric, performance, brand and. Here. This our, pure, electric. Pole statue. Haaa. Falsi. To. Everything. Everything. Has. Been engineered. And, designed with. Passion. And dedication on, that car each. And, every, detail has. Been. Each. And every detail has been thoughtfully. Considered, and it. Is just. Beautiful. Iconic. Graphics, the. Clear-cut. Architecture. Central. Surfaces, and. The. Confident, powerful stance, this, is the, pure, progressive, design that, the brand posta, radiates. For each in every detail. Now. Let. Us go straight, to the heart of pasta. - now. What is the heart of a electric. Car the. Battery the. Very core of posta toothed battery, is a pouch cell that, is a flat cell, that. Makes it easy, to build up multiple, layers in a. Very compact, way and. We. Are talking here lots. Of layers and, lots. And, lots, of layers. 324. Cells. We, condense, into. Pasta. To its long-range. Battery. Now. Because this, is the most crucial, criteria. A modern. Premium electric car has to deliver on range. With. A target of 500. Kilometer. Range you. Can, rely on this. Battery, power in Polster to. Now. How. Do we actually get. These, 324. Pouch cells into, our pasta - well. First. We bundle, 12, cells. In each module, three. Twenty four times. Twelve, twenty. Seven modules. Those. Modules they, transform, them ingeniously. Into the bacteria our. Engineers, they, managed to utilize. With, the highest efficiency all the, space and volume in the, flow of the pasta - so. Each. And every corner, which. Is not needed for a foot room leg room or luggage, we. Came battery. Space. Now. We slide, in the. Cooling, plates they, are there, for the high efficient, temperature management and that. Is it that, is the powerful heart of the, electric pasta -. Strong. Heart is. A strong beat. To. Protect this heart we build. A secure, case around it that is a main structure, made out of an aluminum base, and a. Steel lid and. This. Extremely, rigid enclosure. That, seals. The battery and protects, it in case, of. A crash, but. Sorry. It's. Not only a strong heart obviously it. Is let's face it the battery is heavy. Now. Let's, make, a Vantage. Out of that let's use, it for. The sake of pasta, -. We. Fit this. Battery enclosure, just. Like a Lego brick. Into. The base body. Structure, of pasta - and we. Use the, excellent, rigidity, to. Form a super, stiff car body, this. Amazingly, strong core of the pasta - that. Is not, only the foundation for superb safety, no, it's as well a crucial, and a blur for. The. Agile. Sporty. Driving, feel of pasta. Thanks. To torsional. Stiffness. And a. Wonderful, low. Center. Of gravity. The. Torsional stiffness is, increased. Compared. To a standard car by 35%. Now. Have a look at the, simulation that we're running now where the, car body is put under extreme. Torsional, stress and as. You can see the. Main floor section. Hardly. Moving it is rock. Solid. And one, more great thing about this NVH. Levels noise. Vibration. Harshness now. Why not utilize. This, high mass and stiffness of the battery and enclosure to, actually reduce. Vibration. And noise. So. Our engineers designed, this battery, enclosure to act as. Anchor. Of relevant, frequencies. Now what that really means is it's, just much more silent, and we, want to demonstrate that to you we will play a car. Driving. At, a speed like, hundred kilometers, conventionally. With the lowest level of 74. Decibel. And then, we will switch. To. The noise level, in a poster which is indeed. 3.7. Decibel, lower, than the convention, so please listen to that. That. Is amazing, it. And. Of course, that. Makes especially. Sense in an electric, pasta - since guess what there is no combustion. Engine, noise making, noise and rattling away so, enjoy, the silence, in the pasta -. Now, let us take. A look at the complete drivetrain, and the figures here, is, the long range battery, was a 78, kilo but ours capacity.

And Then. There's the electric motor in front the electric motor in the rear each 150. Kilowatt, and Freenet, 480 Newton, meters let's. Make the math do the math it, is a total. Of 300. Kilowatt, power and. 660. Newton meters of torque. 408. Horse, powers, in a, pasta - how awesome is that. And. This. Section it's 60 Newton meter of electric. Torque this immediate. Instant, never-ending, force pushing, you forward and our, engineers, they, designed, the distribution of this talk, to be adjustable, and with, all this great, ingredients. Positive, became, a truly amazing, performance. Car. Now. This. Is. The. Powerful electric. Drivetrain, in the posta 2 and, this. Was just the beginning we, are really proud that we could so many more innovations. Into posta - and I. Would love to show you some of them. Like. The LED headlights. Of posta, - they. Are not only beautiful and. They are at the same time highly, functional, in fact, these. Pixel, LED, technology we. Use is amongst, the, best and most. Advanced. Possible, there. Are 84. LED, pixels in each headlight, and they are lined, up in three rows and now of, course they project a beam with. Very high precision, but. They have as well a brain these, headlights and that brain can recognize. Up, to five cars in the oncoming traffic and then, it cuts the. Light beam, razor-sharp. Around. Those cars, which. Means we're. Supposed to you, can drive permanently. With high beam, even. With, oncoming, traffic I think, that is a major, contribution to. Your safety. And, that. Safety is dear to our heart, now. For. Your safety but as well for your comfort, we put another thing in the pasta - it comes, a standard, with a highly sophisticated, pilot. Assist system, the. Radar and the forward-looking, camera, they. Permanently, monitor, the street ahead of you and they. Support you with, a safer Drive. That. Is on, what's guard for you every, millisecond. Of your drive it's. Never, becoming tired. It. Never, would you, know glance at as a mess or answer phone call this. System, is your. Garden, angel, in, the pasta -. At. Pasta. - we believe in the power of innovation, the. Shows in major leaps, technology. Lives like the LED headlight. But. We challenge each and. Every detail and we, innovate. Even the, most simple, mechanical. Components. By, rethinking them, and, let. Me show you one of the. Amazing examples. Of that and that would be our. Sight mirror this. Is the side mirror of the pasta -. If. We had engineered. It the way we, did it the last 25, years. Driven. By legal. Requirements. Side mirrors actually have grown from car, generation, to car generation, they became bigger and, that. Is not only an, aesthetical, problem making them look like elephant, ears it's, actually. As well highly, unofficial. Making aerodynamics. Really. Worse from generation to generation so, here. Is what our engineers. Reinvented. Instead. Of adjusting, the glass within, the. Enclosure they, actually put bows together and moved both of them and doing. So we could reduce the volume, of the side mirror by 30%. That. Gives better. Aerodynamics. But. Again, priceless. The, gain in looks bye-bye. Dumbo. Next. Let me show you around inside, pasta, - now.

How Do we get in anybody's. Got, the cocky with you now. Never. Mind. This. You. Always always, have with you your phone so. Via. Bluetooth, pasta. To recognizes, you and your phone and. It. Will unlock the door when. You grab the handle. But. Think about this Bluetooth Boutrous actually, has a. Reception. Precision, of around 6 to 7 meters. That. Is not good enough in case you would be standing close by but, potentially. Out of, sight hidden behind your garden fence for example, so. What we did we. Added four. Additional antennae, in each and every corner of the pasta - and by. That. The. Precision is much higher, only. If your s close is 1.5. Meter by your car the. Car would unlock. The door when, you grab the handle we. Think that is going, to, that is really, amazing convenience. For you that does, not come with any compromise, on your security. Or safety. Once. You sit behind your steering wheel then. You ask yourself where's. The start button. Well. Guess. What you sit on it literally. Really, we. Put the start button into. The seed so. As soon, as the car recognizes. Your phone in the car you. Sitting, behind. The steering wheel it, will, switch, into, ready-to-go, mode which. Means no, key to turn no. Start button to be pushed one. More hurdle taking, away pasta, to knows. And understands, what you want. To do and it, is always a step ahead. When. You drive the, essential, information is displayed on this, gorgeous, with gorgeous clarity and brightness, and. As. Soon as you choose the. Navigation. System it takes over and the map and the directions, take, over, the full width of the screen, a beautiful. And highly, functional. Now. Let us move, over to the center display that. Is an 11, inch big. Gorgeous. Touchscreen. It's. Bigger for. More information, for richer detail and of, course for easier use. Now. We mount this in portrait. Mode, in, vertical, orientation because. This. Is the. Best for. Displaying. A map into, driving direction and handling. Lists for example, address or music. Lists. Now. This, is a real big thing here. With. Pulsar - we change, completely. The way that. We think about and we, handle, the information entertainment. In the car I. Mean. Far how many years. Have, we promised. To deliver an. Easy-to-use. Up-to-date. Navigation, and how. Terribly. Did we fail again. And again. The. Same as voice recognition I, mean just look at the. YouTube, clips, about you know, funny. Clips about. Misunderstandings. Of voice out of control, in cars, so. We, understood, that we really. Have to do something radically. Different here and we. Did. We. Teamed up with. The pros in the respective. Field, and acknowledged. That it's pointless. To think that you can do everything. Best yourself. So. We. Embedded Android, as the infotainment, system, software, bringing. Google. Assistant. Google. Maps and. The. Apps of the Google Play Store into, a pulse tattoo. That. Means that our customers, will enjoy the. Superb, artificial. Intelligence, of Google, assistants fast learning, voice, recognition and. Let. Me demonstrate, that, to you. Take. Me to pizzeria. Roma. Sure. Getting the fastest, route to pizzeria, Roma. Any. Of this you. Do not have to know the town, or the street just, put in the name of the place where you want to go and the navigation. Starts. Find. Shouting stations, nearby. Showing. Results for charging stations, nearby I'll, look at that that's quite a list. Play. At last on Spotify. At. Last, you, can navigate keep. In touch manage. Tasks and plan. Your days using. The time you are behind your steering wheel without distraction. Out. Of the Google Play Store you can, download the. Apps you, prefer, into.

Any Of the four tiles and you can swap in between them, your. Mobile isn't an Android. Never. Mind it will connect and yes. Your iPhone to. All. Posts are two cars will, be connected, to the Internet for over-the-air. Updates. For, online entertainment like, music streaming, as. Standard. The cast. Software, will, update, to. Feel. Like new on a regular base I. Think. It's good, time now to show, you a bit more of posters, beautiful, interior, please enjoy. Isn't. It gorgeous. This. This. Is from the masters of avant-garde, interior, design the. Best you, can get. Scandinavian. Style. Giving. Digital, innovation. Personality. Redefining. Premium. For the electric age, you. Know minimalism, is an art that requires, maximum. Artistry. Experience. And precision. And I. Dare to say pasta too is, the. Best designed, electric. Car period. Now. You wonder. This. Is Spock. Not. The first officer, this. Is our. Spock, poster Spock it, is the, star of a, different, movie an action movie that we shot here in Gothenburg called. The. Nasty, offset, front crash and. Spock. Place a major, role in that movie. Now. What is happening, here is that, little Spock helps. To, guide all, the heavy metal, along the outside of the car during, this collision so. Nothing. Intrudes, into, the interior. The. Spot block is helping. To protect the passengers from, being hurt and, it. Helps. Preventing. Any damage to. The battery pack, it's. A great invention from the, engineers one. Of many, that will make sure pasta, too is one, of if not the safest. Electric, car it. Is engineered and designed to. Reach the, tops course by. Writing Institute's, which, of course a test to come will proof. Now. Check out how well. It performs, as well in the frontal. Crash, was a poll again. Not. A single, crash scratch, on the. Battery pack. Here's. A complete list of safety, tech in the pasta - with. Up to nine. Airbags. Onboard. Eric's. Not only on the outside of the seat Buster but as well on the inside the so-called far, side airbag. Looking. At that list pasta, - is an electric car that makes, no compromise, when it comes to protecting your, life. Another. Topic where we take care of your verus charging. We. Understand, that for many of you the. Range, of a cart charging, is a concern. So. First. We make sure that, you get really far, with one charge offering. A high, battery. Capacity in. The post or two. Second. In. Pasta, - it is really easy to find the, charging, stations, nearby, it's. A full integration, of the infrastructure. Into. The navigation, and an intuitive, search. Functionality. Thirdly. We. Are working, together, with some major players developing. The fast-growing. Charging. Infrastructure, to, offer easy, access for, you our customers, to. The charging, stations, along your way. Our. Care. For the environment goes. Beyond, the, electric drivetrain, we're. Supposed to - we. Designed our interior. Offer to. Promote. And accelerate, the shift of the car industry to words leather. Free, interiors. And, I. Will spare you now the disturbing, video of a mass production, of leather skin again. Just. Like with the propulsion, it is, the great fun and the joy of the alternative. That. We offer that. Should convince, our, customers. So. We, designed the most beautiful. And great-looking. Vegan, interior, program ever in the premium segment and, we. Made it standard, in our offer. So. Let. Me show you some of the awesome appears that, we developed for pasta - here's. We've tech. We've. Take is a fully, vegan, material. It's. Sporty, it. Is water and dirt repellent, and, this. Crisp, and modern look actually was inspired by sports, wear scuba diving, spots where, we've.

Tagged Is 30%. Lighter than leather so for, each car, we save up to four kilo, weight. Compared, to a leather equipped. Car and, even. Lighter offer is the textile, seat, that. Saves. 8, kilos. Of weight compared. To the leather car I mean 8 kilos. Then. We have 3d. Xed. We. Created, three-edged that, with technical. Feel and the beauty of the digital aesthetics, and at. The end it is a beautiful. Piece being a pure, simple. Polycarbonate. Deco, I mean that is how much you can achieve just, simply by designing. Well. Mmm. Then we have food in our car black, ash, it. Was designed, because. We wanted to use the wood in a car in a non-traditional way. So. It. Gives not only I mean this cool and avant-garde look in the car it, also helps, us to actually safe. And, use. More, of the veneer, so. We can reduce scrap. And be, much more sustainable. Using. The wood. Pasta. To will. Come in 6. Exterior, colors, we. Have midnight. We. Have magnesium. Snow. Thunder. Moon. And. Void. And. Of course pasta too will come with or without performance. Pack and in, the performance. Pack sorry, you. Will find the aleene's, chassis technology. The. Polestar, golden seatbelts, and, the. Brembo, brake, calipers. Now. Together, with our Head. Of Design Maximilian, Missoni be produced and created a, video, about. The pasta to which, I would really love to show you now. Pasta. - is not just an electric, car, Polestar. - is a new, icon, of electric, mobility. A confident. Creature playing, to its own rules. Bold. Graphics, clear-cut. Architecture. Sensual. Surfaces, and a powerful stance, materialized. In an uncompromising. Pure, and progressive, design which. Embodies, the true DNA, of the poster. In. Its heart the, powerful 78. Kilowatt, hour battery, pack has, been carefully. Optimized, creating. Both maximum. Interior, space and a low center of gravity, this. Densely, packed powerplant, provides. Up to 500. Kilometers of range. To, powerful electric, motors generate. A combined. 300. Kilowatts, of power and. 660. Newton meters of torque, our. Engineers, designed, the power train for precise, adjustable.

Torque Distribution. Elevating. Your driving, experience and positioning. Posta - as a true, electric, performance, car. The, pixel LED headlamps, are not only beautiful to look at but also, contains, some of the most advanced. Lighting technology, on the market. We.

The, configurator, will be available, right after, this show so. You can choose, your favorite post or two and, place. Your reservations, starting, today. With. The presentation. Of our, poster, to to you today we. Have deliberately. Not followed, a top-down. Strategy. So. We rather decided, to something, different. After. Defining the top the pinnacle, of our brand was a beautiful. Poster. 1gt. We. Followed up today with a poster, to an electric. Car that defines. The foundation. Of our brand. Why. The. Bus, around. The Tesla Model 3 showed, where. Electro, mobility is, relevant. For society, today and. Resposta. Too we. Bring an exciting. Premium, electric car that will broaden the choice and offer in exactly. This segment, and we. Truly, hope that, we will contribute with this to success, of sustainable. Electric. Mobility. Now, making, this, powerful. And beautiful design, that we fell in love with three, years ago. Come. Alive. That. Was really demanding, but. On the other hand it was a fulfilling, journey. Whilst. Retaining. This. Original, iconic design, we. Develop meaningful, hardware. And software to. Make, pasta to a car. So distinctive. So. Personal, and so. Innovative, it will. Electrify. Your drive. Yeah. Well.

Show Video


Music by Mick Gordon

150km? Koreans do better then that, although leather-free is good, that's a right direction.

looks beautiful and of course like Volvo. So i dont like the name. But the cars should be good, i'm interested in.

Nice car ... though ... artificial (and rather badly done) presentation ... too "we wanna be cool like apple style" like ... and no reference to Volvo even as it is Volvo brand (which is NOT bad thing at ALL!!!) ... and what did we learn from this ... nothing ... "we do it like this we do it like that we will save the planet ... " . If you copy Apple then think deeper and do it like they really do (from Markting point of view ... and sell philosophy not "what and how" but "why" ;-) *see Simon Sinek on this topic*

ok, that intro was sooo awkward. That jacket... more awkward. That script was a mash up of apple, telsa, mastercard, who else? "Blah blah passion blah blah whoohoo bla blah passion..." Gets my vote for Worst car launch 2019. I bet Thomas, the CEO, likes to dance like Elaine from Seinfield at the company's friday work drinks.

No Tech-Specs ... AC-Charging?

Polestar I thought there were gonna be strippers

Looks like a Volvo with bad proportions who lost its badge. As long as Polestar will feel like a stolen part of Volvo I'll have a problem with this brand.

mustard jacket

2:07 "Is everything on track, Suzanne?" "As always!" *Lies!* Regardless of company, you could only wish that everything was always on track.

What is this frame rate seems a bit off. In the intro I mean.

Thank you Tesla for pushing all the car makers to pull out their faces out of their butts. NOW VOLVO... MAKE THIS CAR WAGON!!!! VOLVO IS WAGON, WAGON IS VOLVO... And I will be the first to buy it. Come on !! don’t stop halfway of a good successful product!! WAGON WAGON WAGON!!

His jacket patches match the dog. Style king. Never own a dog whose colour clashes with your elbow patches. Nice looking car. Should get Mr and Mrs Sceptical aboard the EV revolution.

I love this car. I pre-ordered the Byton M-Byte for my wife. Now this is going to be for me

Dream Starup. Only Blabla.

That car looks beautiful, but i hate it when i see something that is allready on the market (Tesla has all of this since 2012) being presented as a revolutionary product/strategy.

I know Elon and he is no Elon Musk.

Comparing anyone to Elon makes that person look small tbh

The LED fog lights look exactly like on Volvo's SUVs

Beautiful great work everyone

if they would use Tesla charging network it would make more sense

For the “strong heart” battery case — aluminum base + steel case = dissimilar metals. Add road salt as you get in cold climates = RUST.

the front face is look a like a volvo

Will this car be available in NZ ?

I really like the guy’s accent in the beginning.

This presentation is what I would expect from high school kids ... who are not particularly talented. Annoyed enough already that I went to comment and haven't heard a single damn thing about the car yet.

Electric cars are getting sweeter and sweeter...

I really dislike the apple-like presentation with all the moronic clapping and cheering. Also this guy dresses like a twat. Nice car though.

Volvo headlights? Well everyone likes Thor I guess. I like it, at least Volvo knows how to align panels...

Northern Hemisphere fascism, yay! "All across the globe"... not one in the southern hemisphere! Probably still thinks of it as "Terra Nullius" meh...

Nice car, but compared with a $35.000 Tesla model 3.... is this too little too late?

nothing can beat model 3 ...quality / price ... BEST CAR EVER ; PERIOD ..

Tesla and Apple had a baby and it's name is Polestar

Tesla pioneered, Porsche on its way of perfecting . . Volvo re-inventing

Finally, Tesla has some competition.

Is this the Swedish Tim Cook?

The thing I'm waiting the most with electric cars is if german and other car makers with horrible reliability will finally be reliable.

is this an Apple show?

so if your phone is dead, you cant drive the car?

150 km pure electric is good but, a minimal number

Electro fucking mobility is a BIG LIE ! The CO2 emission which is caused during the battery production is by far higher than current one !!! Furthermore if we still stick to lithium ione batteries where is the raw material needed for it if the whole country switches to ev cars ?

It says it was hybrid. I thought it was electric.

This is Volvo's wanna-be-Tesla-hobby-project. They'll never be them, nor should they. Though it's doomed to fail, since the PS1 haven't even started selling. Idiocracy, Volvo!

Android. YUGH.

The next FF not Tesla

From me to the CEO for Polestar 2. You did an OK presentation not ground breaking, not shitty but OK. The car looks good and has good range aswell. Well done and welcome to the electric world. We need more please, cheaper versions.

The design is wrong. Large battery modules cooled only from one side will result in an internal temperature gradient within the module. The battery will die faster. You need to cool every cell individually.

Polestar Boardroom: Chairman: let's develop our strategy CEO: let's just copy Tesla Chairman: Ok, we are done here, have to go.


I think elon musk succeed. in his mission for the world to be greener. at first it was only tesla now look how many companies are going ev

Make this car under $40,000 with over 240 mile range and you have a winner. If you can’t do that, then good luck, most people would rather by a Tesla.

Better late than never, but Tesla is 10 years ahead.. By the way.. everything was fine until he said the word ANDROID.

Lovely car!

I appreciate the effort and the passion, but this presentation is a clear and bad imitation of Steve Jobs' style while the car is a clear and late imitation of Tesla, which achieved the same technology years ago. Also, Tesla had much longer for iterating towards a more mature technology and it won't be easy to catch up. Please try to distinguish yourself more, but again, congrats for switching from prototype to product.

What is with the back to the future jacket?

Bye bye Tesla

Thanks China for reviving Volvo!! Thought the brand was dying for good.

Cheesestar 2.

Vegan car, I hope his jacket, shoes and belt are vegan too...

Can't afford one. That's why I am not buying it. :D

Cant find Ane Brun At Last song neither on Youtube nor Spotify. Is it just me? anyone link? :(

What if you loose your phone somewhere. How do you get back home.

Polestar table dancers

Hatchbacks look cheap. Grow up and design a sedan and then maybe you won't be an also ran.

The technology an innovation is impressive unfortunately Polestar forgot that at the door when they placed the whooping idiots in the audience. Great car stupid marketing dept

"Across que globe"? You have forgotten South America, Africa and Oceania!

Think Polestar should just take over all the shut Tesla show rooms!

It looks like a Saab.

"Fun and joy of electric propulsion" ?? I mean electric motors, are about as fun as a vacuumcleaner imho. But nice car nevertheless.

Starter in the seat? What could possibly go wrong

And it will cost 10 million dollars!

Lol the intro video is so cheesy

and no car on stage :(

43:25 some boot opening problems, whoop, solved

I think when you design an electric car you have to avoid a front grill by all means. It's just a rule of thumb. I like polestar but really it looks like a regular car somewhere between skoda and dodge. Only the back and rims are 100 % premium look from my perspective. anyway I'm happy to see more pure-electric cars with reasonable perfomance.

Cool car! Cringey presenter.

WOW I'm crying. It's a dream car!!! What is the music in the video about 39:19?

2025 eller ?

No polestar NYC?

Chinese garbage!

Da indian guy worked in a Callcenter for Volvo, now he is making cars for them......way to go brother.

I feel so sorry for Greta Thunberg. Not only would she have given a better and more authentic presentation. She would have known that production in China is not the future.

Certainly a nice car. I can see problems arising with the embedded driver-presence seat switch mentioned in the video. Over time wear and tear might cause malfunction and the car might switch off at the side of the road. What was wrong with a start button exactly?... A start button is pressed for one half second to engage the system. With the embedded switching you are sitting on it.

Agreed, what if I simply gonna take a rest inside the car? I will have to then probably say to Google - "switch it off for now".

was it made by steve jobs?

Can I work at Polestar please?

500km range, awesome! No self driving capability though?



Nice car but that wannabe is to much

Legendary chinese quality car with android onboard? no thanks

Steve Jobs, Elon Musk wannabe

4 people can only sit inside the car . Remembered when tesla came out there where actually 7 people. Yes including 2 childrens...but here they have put a dog in trunk


It’s ugly .. they are still thinking conventional gasoline engine I’m sorry they dropped the ball

Another electric car shill company

i zoned out in like 1 minute 30

[17:29] "This system is your garden angel" ??

OnePlus style presentation

Totally ripping off Apple. Vegan seats! Get the fuck outta here! Give me some premium horse leather for fuck sake!

Hey veejay, hey veejay

What's the song at the end? 45:22

So glad to see the Tesla effect inspiring these other companies. Very cool

I hope the cars are not as cheesy or passe as the advert!

Sorry but I wasn't feeling it

For your next launch, please use a better public speaker ... quite a big discrepancy between the product and the speaker, everything seemed very forced and kinda fake .... congrats for the car but be more authentic

Apple much?

Oh my god.. Clear Polestar2 carry a lots of tons! I think Volvo's rushing a lot. The safety level of electric vehicles is not trustworthy. The gasoline engine is still better and more reliable, as well as excellent hybrid for the economy.

a lot of glitter, but can it make it's way out of the factory. Anyhow, glad that VOLVO is joining the electric age.

Front is peugeot and back is Volvo

Love polestar but this is a set up load of hype a la china good luck ladies

Congrats, Your Video is Featured on TechGenez.com

these over enthusiastic ppl killed it for me. stfu.

Bolshevic probaganda

macchina stupenda non vedo l'ora che esca in Italia! però nella presentazione potevano mettere qualche bella modella svedese

If Tesla can put a 200 kWh battery in their small Roadster 2, why can't Polestar put a battery that size in their big car?

noch so eine Gurke! Ja klar, den Planeten schützen, vor uns selbst?

So we have awesome headlights in a car that Tesla did a better job at 3 years ago and they managed to do this in a grey and white smushed down Dodge Charger. Everyone seems to forget that the biggest advantage for Tesla right now is the Supercharger network. I'm surprised that yet another manufacturer has decided not to become part of this. Why would I buy a car that at this price point where I couldn't go several hundred miles with the aid of a quick charge or two like I could in a Tesla?

I love how Shell, B.P, EXon ect finally cannot stop this , as they did back in the 1990s. Dont you?!

I'm not sure how well the battery technology is but everything else was nice. Glad they chose Android to be there infotainment system of choice. Love the Google Assistant built-in as well as Google Maps.

Who funds these people this is a billion dollar project, how do they get these funds, i tell you this is bullshit how money is given like that because you can produce an electric car. This is a rothchild company

This video felt very fake

Wait you pay for a luxury car and it's features Than you pay again monthly to use those features Meanwhile the auto company spys on you and sells your data for more profits No thanks

Give us a gas v6 please And a gas generator for electric models for NO range anxiety

Did you film the intro to this video in like 1/25 shutter? Motion blur looks terrible.

Don't care about the kilos, I want leather

I will stick with Tesla. Nothing special or differentiation. Tesla is eons ahead.

408hp polestar for 59,900 Euro ($68k USD) vs 450 hp (soon to be 473hp with OTA update) Model 3 for $58k USD + access to superchargers + most advanced autonomous driving. I am not hating on polestar I'm just wondering who wants less for their money

Am I the only person who thinks this guy voice is annoying

This was so cringeworthy , this bloke is trying do hard to be a Steve Jobs clone

Tesla fanboy here, I like the Polestar 2!

The LED headlights are pretty nice, cool that you can keep the high beams on and have it adjust to not blind oncoming traffic...

He's cooler than Elon.... ;)

Yayyyy One whole dealership in the USA. Makes you wonder why this presentation is even in English....

Seems you all learned from Steve Jobs how to bullshit the world.

Too much gob not enough car.

Bored smart rich folks, making cars for bored smart rich folks. Beautiful engineering with zero focus on saving the planet. "Vegan interior" he said wow lol.

Paid audience?

To be fair I think it's sad to see the Tesla community being so negative about all other car companies. This car is a very reasoneble B-option for Tesla haters. Better then the I-pace for example. Also, the Tesla community is starting to get a really negative attitude.

Why can't I find the song he voice requested At Last - by Ane Brun on spotify or somewhere else??

The corniness in this presentation is unreal

Coldest office i have ever seen in my life. Please get some plants.. yikes.

Now that I know this is Volvo... take very very seriously....

100mi electric range. Clearly not a front-runner.

Thanks but tesla is better and my next car

Well, I watched the whole thing, besides feeling terrible staged and it probably is, the car looks kinda nice, the spec doing good but this thing hitting the streets in a year and a half, I guess it’ll be somewhat outdated? Yet another “made in China” car, with even a big customer group being China, I wonder if that might be having something to do with a Chinese company being the biggest shareholder of Volvo? Probably. Software Updates over wifi... Google integrated, why not hand over your “car keys” to some hackers or corrupt government altogether? “I want to go position X..”., “you said something against the Chinese government last week, so, no you won’t” And where can I finde this nice version of “at last” by Ane Brun ?

hello PS...will you sell in NZ?.

One of the best launch event i have seen...

Attention to details: a long part of the presentation is about vegan interior design, right ? Yet the CEO presents this new product with what looks like a bright yellow leather jacket. Dommage!

Good luck it looks nice overall :)

when will it be available in Australia

they won't have a sale point in Dubai - HOWEVER in a promotional clip THERE IS DUBAI in the background :D

isn't this company owned by a chinese company?

haha he speaks about cows and leather not used in a car AND HAS ONE ON HIM! WELL DONE!

I've cringed first 4 min.

Is this a Tesla event from 2012?

The car for the 1% .. Thanks, Volvo!

So so inferior to real innovators. To tesla in tech and to Steeve Jobs in presentations. Pretention is as high, as if they are the fist ones who bring mass EV to the world. Sure, its impossible for every car manufacturer to be innovator, and its fine to be "just another manufacturer", just cut this awkward claps and wows. But sure, I love that EVs fleet is growing. Lets allow ICE to rest in peace.

TESLA way ahead

At this point I think Elon Musk should just be left alone

Members only jacket in special edition mustard?

what if the phone is dead?

But can I comfortably seat three teenagers in the back?

Car looks like an SUV that didn't know whether to please enthusiasts (by going sedan) or cater to what everyone seems to be embracing these days (SUV).

43:23 the girl cant open de door hahahahahah!

This ads make me not want the car so fake

500km range is low for me :-/

Whatba time to be alive. The burth of responsible manufacturing. Addressing the needs of people and at the same bringing less harm to the environment.

That's a copy of Tesla

horrible front end design,and general generic style . weak! Its obvious no car enthusiasts designed this junk.

F A N T A S T I C .....C A R!❤

Volvo VE?

Skulle aldrig gå med bluetooth igång konstant på mobilen...

Looks like a great product, more convince convincing than Tesla

What a tease. Feb 2020 :,-(

Good job Volvo! You have just copied Tesla and Apple in different ways. Straight off. I donˋt mind, but it makes me laugh. Another good thing. Hejja hejja!

What a load of crap!

What bullshit, this guy is not even an half assed Elon musk.

it's just a fucked up version of tesla. Its interior is so bad. And they are telling about features which are lame and also sound lame in the presentation.

Clapping and whopping at the design of a door mirror! But the car is stunning and if it can do what they say it can and Volvo quality is built into it I think Tesla have something to be scared of!

simply ......VAPOURWARE

thank you so much for clean energy and saving animals master stroke by POLESTAR Gud Job and well done once again

What happens if your phone battery dies & you need to get home?

Good job, Volvo!

"Vegan interior" announced by yellow LEATHER jacket-wearing "woke" CEO, lol, never mind eh.

Already behind the game, good looking car but Jaguar ipace available

The whooing and clapping, Its all theater, they are paid to scream like that, to make you feel that somebody is out of the mind from this car and you share the feelings, its actually insulting that they are trying to fool us like that, and Musk with the tesla is not an exclusion, can you imagine your self to screen like a teenage girl on a boy band concert, during a car presentation? Ok some individuals com to mind, but if they drink a LOT before. But here its definitely not the case. Be honest and people will reach out to you, if the product is good, trying to fool them with cheap television tricks like that, and you only earn your self a reputation of a fooler, i suggest you fire your PR manager and hire a good one instead, and by the way, the OUTFIT of the SEO.... are you serious? He looks like a jerk in it, am wondering how have he agreed to put this on?

I don't want be rude or anything, but I don't see any groundbreaking engineering breakthrough in new Polestar 2. But I am happy that they are making only EVs as the ultimate goal of Tesla is coming one more step closer. You can see and feel their low level of confidences in their own vehicles. They are badly trying to follow Tesla like all other EV car makers. They are 2 to 3 years behind of Tesla. I wonder why all those people are cheering and what they are excited about? May be the free meal they will get after this Circus!!! they must be leaving in stone age by Tesla standards. Lol. There's absolutely nothing to get excited about this car. It's has future but not very bright one. If they want stand apart, they need to Invent new technologies and stop copying and pasting. At this moment it's not at all a desirable and cool looking car, in fact design and features wise it sucks.

You know Thomas, Volvo will continue to be what it is with the new model. A nice presentation doesn't change that much. The manufacturer of good quality for a limited clientele. To be able to expect more, you would have had to make more effort. Something really very impressive you would have to deliver if you wanted to take something away from the greats of the world. The major electrical manufacturers can sit back and relax. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator

what about the charging infrastructure?

I'd really like one in Fusion Red Metallic. Hope this colour comes as well!

he speaks as though everyone can afford it...lol

Great car, really ! Would nice to know about the charging possiblities, 3 Phase AC, 100 kW DC?

Like the office space of the company building however the presentation is boring and the design of the car is not impressive.

I would punch people yelling... in the face

'All Across the globe' - we will just skip Central/Eastern Europe, Middle East, Russia and Africa. Damn you fools!

Congratulations on the car, it looks great. I Didn't liked the presentation, though. Out of the 40 min, you've 20 min of useful information, and 20 min of cheering and clapping

But can I get a red polestar 2? Or do I have to get “snow” or “thunder?”

Good looking interior and exterior though

Cringy hahaha

"Potato" *audience claps and wooh*

Yikes. This feels like something from an episode of Silicon Valley. All the other Polestar 1 teaser videos have been so understated, mysterious and cool. This video makes the whole brand look like it's trying SOOOOOO hard. I don't want to know that you have a dog-friendly workplace stuffed with millennials pretending to have brainstorming sessions.

He wears a leather jacket and then talks about vegan seating, wtf?

Volvo supply the IDF with tractors for demolishing the homes of Palestinians and earthmovers for ripping up their farmland so Israeli settler homes can be built on it. The bulldozer that cut American activist Rachel Corrie in half and then mushed her body into the ground was a Volvo.

J'ai nous comme il y a toujours un risque de coupure de courant , et peu de point de recharge ,et quand j'ai vu le reportage sur la Nissan , en arrivant a une agence Nissan pour recharger , la prise fournie avec le véhicule ne correspondais pas a la borne , et bien aimable le garage lui a proposer d'acheté la prise en accord avec la borne pour 250 euros ,vous acheté une voiture Nissan assurer vous d'avoir les 2 prises peu être une en option ,vu , la gentillesse de garage qui lui a proposer d'acheté , au lieux de lui prêter le journaliste a us le bon reflex de faire repartir le véhicule avec le dépannage du garage d'ou il l'avais loué pour l'essai ,Chapeau au réseau ,ça ne donne pas envie d'en acheté une

As much as I hate all the BS and the accent of the guy, Polestar is doing a lot of things very smart.

All across the globe but no Africa no South America no Oceania.. Please give a timetable

Awesome presentation. I'll be waiting launch on FEB 2020 in California.

For electronic cars to become mainstream they must get the price down.


His dry mouth smacking is annoying.. he should drink some water everytime the audience claps.

It looks like a Volvo, but very nice. It's good to have more electric car manufacturers that improve what already exists. Good job!

It Looks like a Apple Präsentation...100%

i made it through minute 17 yeaaay

It's awesome


pushing a start button being regarded as a hurdle* LULZ!

It's great to see other brands pushing the electric thing - but this car is :( I just hope it's very cheap so people can afford it because it does NOT even come close to a Tesla and all of its features. Blatant copy of Tesla's screen too lol.


So many Tesla features. Even their galleries look like Tesla's old galleries.

Why is this like an Ipad launch? Chill your boots polestar - it's a battery powered volvo.

I wish people knew what this companies are getting us in to, one day everybody will regret.

23:21 Calling it now, Polstar 2 will be the first fully hacked vehicle. You will literally brick your car, or have it stolen remotely.

4:45 Subscription service to just use your car wirelessly/software? No thanks!

Terrible motion blur all throughout the intro of this video, trash. Can't get a simple video right, should I expect anything better from their car?

tesla follower. Haha.

Nice Volvo!

This Polestar 2 is a excellent example of how to Copy and Paste a Tesla

Tesla was not the first to make a EV... that's not what is meant... Tesla realy made EVs better than ICEs first. And came up with everything this guy is trying to sell as if their team came up with everything.

Undeniably so

Tesla wasn't even the first company create an electric car. That being said, In what other aspect is the Polestar 2 "Copying" Tesla?

I love Volvo, I love polestar and I love the car however I think this presentation was far too similar to apple’s, from the way he speaks to the fancy reveal video. It really annoys me because they could have done something original.

Lol get a life snowflake and stick your first world problems up your entailed ass :D

but why not Italy :(

Italy is too poopy

way more good looking than the model 3

Im not a fan of the Tesla model x design but this is worse than that.

Gee i wanna have a projected presentation like Jobs or Musk, with same style cues...ugh. All empoyeez muzt clap, or be shot!!! Clap, clap, clap. This will perform like in our animation. Clap, clap, clap. "Vegan" interior (like in Tesla) Clap, clap, clap. Our panoramic glass roof idea is a straight knock off from tezla. Clap, clap, clap. Our color selection is vast, Black, dark grey, light grey, white, silver and diff grey. Clap, clap, clap. Out CG shit is superior to real life. Clap, clap, clap. Our cars will cost 45,500-65,000usd+ Clap, Clap, Clap. F**k you all grey masses, u will buy our shit. Clap, clap, clap.

Well done !!!

Im sorry but the car just isn't that attractive imo.. It looks like every other car on the market.. The model 3 looks wayyy cooler and I would purchase it on that alone. Also it costs less..

All, pie in the sky, electric car will never ever take off no matter how much they are forced on us.

I appreciate your commitment to Britain at a time when project fear is in real effect.

A Tesla with TASTE.......!

They are looking for easy money (from speculators), showing something that not exist, so I´m going to buy a bunch of short stock options.....

Oh, I thank YouTube so much to have created this fast forward double tap. Funny Apple-Tesla mix, by the way...

Boy, sounds like a great car if it weren't for the boring presentation. Fell asleep twice.

Hmm 51K USD made in china car !! vs 35 K made in california car .. your pick

We'll said 'one with reason'

At present, electric cars are a FAILURE. Can you handle the truth? Go read the articles posted by Eric Peters. At this juncture electric cars are all hype. Without gov't subsidies, sales would be negligible. Tesla appears to be dying financially. Let's see if it is still around at the end of 2019.

Nothing substantiated was said in this attempt.

Chinese made Volvo great again!

its a peugeot without the slanted line

Talks about vegan interior car in a leather jacket. lmao

the same as volvo s80

Awesome now I can play my phone games on my cars 11 inch screen while unleashing 408hp and God knows how much weight into the general public! Sounds great

The DRL’s are the copy of VOLVO

this was lame on a colossal level. just another thing to be marketed and sold, made solely for the profit of the shareholders.

It reminds me on sn apple event

I want this fucking car right now


That look sooo much better than Tesla. And when it comes to quality, Volvo is superior to Tesla, but on closer reflection, almost everything is.

Is it going to be limited to 112mph lol........

everything was great until 28:00 where you can tell he knows that isn't true :)

It might be a threat for the Model 3, time will tell. The rear of the car is ugly, though.

like every other electric car, unaffordable to the real working class

The Model 3 is affordable isn't it?

All the Tesla investors are shaking rn

Vegan Car looking like a Renault Car

The Polestar 2 is a Beautiful car. But ist not a car that i need. I have a Family, a dog. I want to pull a horsetrailer with 1,8 tons. It's possible with 408 PS. But not with the polestar 2 as Liftback. Your customers needs only a Liftback they needs a Station Wagon too!

made in changdu :)) naaa

I hate this cliche bullshit video, cliche bullshit marketing, and cliche bullshit CEO. It’s a dystopian-feeling knockoff in all ways. Awful

RIP benz bmw

Wait what? California is a country? :-)))

WoooooooooooH I didn't watch all of it. I don't see why CEOs feel the need to do such long presentations or do them at all. It comes across a bit cheesy.

I can't watch it all either. Infomercial.

new Saab

Reminded me of the state of the union and so much time wasted applauding for no reason. First I said that gives the presenter time to wrap his mind around his next few sentences then noticed the teleprompter. I don't see the utility of so much time wasted applauding.

Nice jacket....... fuck sake

Expensive piece of SH1t. The Chinese has all wheel drive 100% electric, self driving cars for less than $20k

Wow I've never seen more Elon Buttlickers in one place in the comment section ;)

Someone please tell him California is not a country

Nicely done.

and also not coming to india

#copyTesla - Tesla WIN

Its nice to see the new kid on the block but we can safely say "The Tesla Effect" in action.

OH dear!, STOP making unaffordable cars and start with the massive production 400km range at 12000 euros instead! Holy shit ! tired of snoobs!

I really like volvo's new products, but jesus... who decided that the first 2.5 minutes of this video were a good idea? So cringeworthy.

Making battery for one electric car make more pollution than 10 year riding a thermic engine. This is shit. Even their speaker have a fist fucker way to look at the camera


Wait there's Polestar 1? Kappa

The AMAZING six colors are: Gray, white, white, gray, gray and black!!!

Comment of the century

The dog using elevator on its own is the most impressing thing in this video 0:59

So nice and all with all the keyless things, but if your kids go sit on the front seat while your phone is in the car (lets say at a gasstation for instance) your kid can just drive of because he is the key at that moment.. sometimes its better to keep things dumb instead of trying to make everything in the world smart.

can't wait to see Dyson electric car into the competition

waste fo time and sources

Someone give this man some water!

It will work in the U.S but might be a issue in the UK

Its named after a stripper compliment.

And polestar can't swallow deep enough to admit they couldn't copy it the rest of the way

Because Tesla has the tech

Like Volvo design.


Is a Garden angel...like a gnome

Ok..so where are the Polestar quick chargers?

BORING car presentatation , compared to TESLA model 3 Launch, just wait until model Y is Launched on March 15.

Very simple How many miles omg

Electricity is killing the mid class people.

Y como lo abre mi hija de 14 años para recoger el libro del colegio que se le ha olvidado? El coche está en el garaje en un edificio a 100m de casa. Solo se abre con el móvil?

Beautiful concept beautiful idea but once the executives get ahold of it they are going to break it down

This is the most amazing car despite it being electric which I'm not too much into electric cost for some reason maybe it's because of electric cars are going to be replaced by hydrogen but the car is absolutely amazing the ideas absolutely amazing can you manufacture these and numbers that's going to make a significant impact on your profit level and what is your manufacturing techniques and how many cars can you make a year there's a lot of questions I really good presentation and everything and I always wanted to integrate Google into the car system and I've done that with my cell phone but I wanted to be part of my Center display you didn't talk about maintenance didn't talk about how the cars manufactured efficiently enough for the profit to be made we could all have these fantasies and I remember the 1959 Edsel I just saw one of your presentation so I can't say that I'm an expert on what you're talkin about I love the idea of the car but can your manufacturer what are the safety features does it have in my opinion fashion should should exceed current function otherwise it just looks good for nothing

Wait... This 'Pilot' doesn't drive? Sad.

At least it has a decent 'targeted' range. My Model 3 from last year has that.

They screwed up the name. Polestar 2? The Polestar one is a car nobody knows. That makes the Polestar 2 seem like a sequel to a failed car.

I often wonder where I can get a job where I make a prototype that never makes it to market, cash in, and move on.

im more excited about honda's urban ev lol

the CEO's assistant lol. man they must go through a lot of post it notes. Everyone wants to be just like Steve Jobs. Sustainable mobility my arse!!! if this was true build a f#%ing affordable EV instead of these over priced virtue signaling wank wagons do we really need 500kms range, 400HP and 660Nm torque its ridiculous. You want make a difference to global warming, sustainability and be green then make a lightweight compact everyday affordable car! Wow look our car is 3dB quieter what a joke

environmentally friendly: "leather feee interior", while wearing leather jacket

*vEgAn InTeRiOr*

Oh how I hate the hassle of PUSHING A BUTTON to start my car.. Phew! Swedish engineering at its wildest.. XD Cool car though.

Dang.....If my phone gets stolen it means my car would have too.


Does all of that mean that who ever snatches my mobile phone while i am making a phone call in the street can help himself to my beatifull Polestar 2 .

All staged, all advertisments... I like the car, it looks it has nice sitting position... but all those sci-fi movies seems to come true... All big events staged, staged emotions... Sad... (it seems Elon Musk started the screeming crowd, don't take this theater way of show. It is so artificial).

when the car and the music came in i thought i will see a dance group performance from them

"Hi, this is Polestar 1 with 600 HP and..." That's enough man and take my fucking money !

Is it only impression that many components on the exterior and interior are completely identical to Volvo? It looks like they used these Design Components directly from the shelves of Volvo

this looks like a mustang

By far not enough electric range!!! By the way, you did not start a trend, and Polestar does not have any customers yet... right? And your charging network is where? One more question: Was that a leather Jacket or Vegan on the CEO??? ;-)

Fantastic product. But the presentation is so staged. Including the speech and clapping. Feels like a staged emotion inspired from Tesla and Apple. I guess it is a Chinese company after all.

how much cost charge on each country market mentioned?

Vegan car ? WTF .

at 1:08 when he said 'over here, in the lab, this is where all our awesome engineers sit' I honestly was puzzled for a split second and thought, where do the crap ones sit! Apart from the corporate polish, a nice video, I love the Polestar brand

Marketing execs sat around a table thought "what can we call vinyl so that people think it's not vinyl".... "vegan"

And when does it come out? 2020, as always. Everyone just seems to love that year. Until then, Tesla has sold 400,000 more cars at least, and will have such a huge headstart. And need to drive something NOW, not in 2020. That's why I have a model 3 already, hehe. But I am glad to see that the electric revolution is now really pickung up steam.

..bulky .. suv-y .. ugly .. ?!? .. Where is the previous , proper 2-door coupe ..concept car .. Polestar .. ?!? .. Why they .. allways..! .. screw this up .. !?! .. yeah , .. "fastback my asss" .. >)

This guy is pure awkwardness. I want to strangle this motherf*cker with is disgusting jacket and smack the shit out of him with his own sneakers so badly...

Just copying Tesla, from A to Z....

So basically vapourware, pre-order for delivery one day in the future. Is this why Tesla cut their prices? Are Polestar going to compete as prices fall further ? No mention of charging technology...

Saving the planet no less.

This intro is full of so fake enthusiasm... Polestar 2 - beautiful machine.

Nice complement to Tesla at 42:02. Now can you make it available to buy in Tenerife please ?

Yeah thats right your Volvo’s taillights will never greet you! Only the fancy polestar

Putting a big screen to replace everything is just pure laziness, it was probably a compromise tesla had to make as a startup to save manufacturing costs. Besides, if you can't take inspiration from other people and what they are doing, we'd all still drive Mercedes Benz cars because they invented the first petrol car.

+Mesta Right, but it's still just a presentation, People there can exaggerate a lot.

Have you seen yellow cows though

I thought that was funny, unless.... it was a vegan jacket :-D

Tell me one single car affordable with more than 200 horsepower and ridiculous autonomy a comfort. For no more than 20k !

And there's born another follower for Tesla. It's amazing to see the changes Tesla made in the automobile industry's perspectives. It's good to have competition for us, as customers, but still guys, there's a gap of distance between mount Everest and that hill you see on the highway side, with you and Tesla. Good luck btw. Who knows what happns!

Fucking chinese car

Fake ??

what about releasing the 1 before making another..

get some more colours, the car is very nice.

did not like any of these colours. i have v40 volvo d4. and the colour is fantastic bronze.

Elon Musks biggest triumph so far!

Not staged at all...

Creepy Scientology vibe presentation!

Green washing. Bling bling ecology. Saving the planet through consumerism.

Cool! What music is playing at 39:20?

this presentations (apple, tesla style) are starting to look ridiculous...

I don't like vegan interiors, I love eating my seats.


Vegans eat nylon sportswear?

Volvo, owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co, will not sell its all-electric Chinese made Polestar models in the United States.....(Reuters, March 6, 2019)

Great communication skills! I like the Scandinavian (or say: North-West-European) touch. This presentation reflects the basics of our culture.

No any room for Saudi Arabia :(

Minus a bunch of details. A poor copy. Looks nice though, and that will be its major selling point.

They act like this is revolutionary, but it's an exact copy of Tesla

It is so much pathos from nothing, they are baby's dummies. Why the presentation bad at them, and it is a shame to me? Nothing outstanding, nothing is absolute, I am disappointed

Whats the Name of the Song ?

The only thing not so advanced about this car is the Side mirrors. People actually have cameras in there now. That's not too advanced.

Please launch India biggest market in world

Perhaps when charging stations are as numerous as GAS STATIONS then 500 km ( 310.6 miles ) would be practical for long-range travel assuming the charging time was 15 minutes or less for a full 500 km. Like the Early70's Gas conversion Diesel engines, long-range travel was a worry to the driver thinking about the next fill-up. ( Then answer became clear to owners . " look for Truck Stops " ) . I believe most folks ( myself include ) will continue to purchase Hybrids and Plug-in Gas/Electric Hybrids until more STANDARD charging stations are available. ( Level II & Level III quick-charging ports to include all US, Japanese, Swedish, German, English & Korean Auto Manufacture's . ) The FEAR of running out of "JUICE" or waiting for long charging times during a long road trip will diminish most ELECTRIC vehicles sales during the next 5 plus years. I believe most manufactures missed the mark completely by not offering a Small, mid-size or a full size ALL electric truck for the suburb and country dwellers that use trucks for local transportation and hauling. Owning a home level II charger would eliminate any need of stopping at the local GAS STATION.

Enviroment friendly? I think not, not with electricity from coal power stations pumping poison into the atmosphere. 60 spaces? in cities around the globe but none in South Africa because no electricity, said coal above for power stations shipped to China on some crooked deal. I WANT IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If they’re not going to offer leather at least offer synthetic leather. Some of us prefer that material because it’s easier to clean.

What if my phone is dead, how am I going to unlock the car and drive?

I am a young engineer , with a passion for automotive technology and progression. I work within the automotive industry, Having had experienced many EV automotive manufacturers, Nissan, BMW, Tesla , Byton and Nio. No matter if they look at me and do not see a sale , they have had the time to talk to me, tell me about the vehicles show me what they are all about. I went to go and see the polestar at good wood festival of speed UK . What i experianced , I clearly was not a future customer for you and was not worth the time to have a look in your stand. Thanks for making my future selection of an EV smaller ! Good luck with selling your vehicle , I'm sure only the very wealthy people will have a chance to buy your vehicle!

Japan is future of the world toyota starts hibird now emprove all brands thats good for planet

Seat sensor is a bad idea.

Over here; this is where all our awesome engineers sit... but let's forget those losers, and talk to these GQ product salespeople who flunked science class. https://youtu.be/kVg5ycWTAhQ?t=73

Bla Blabla. Shut the **************. Damn another rich bieach present. See only blending people like Tesla and co. Where is the new technology??? You build f**** simple Car with infotainment System. I need a car for a normal price. Where are new inventions, you just combine new tec together. Keep your overpriced printer for yourself.

this presentation is soooo fake...

Dude you're wearing leather jacket

How about telling us WHY your experience was bad? Was it just too expensive for your pockets? And I assume you are talking about Polestar 1.

Only legal in Japan as far as I know, except for after market solutions.

They will offer leather too.

That moon color though. Mmmmmm

I have only bought Volvo Vehicles and my next will most likely be a Tesla, only because of timing. But I may just save up and use my current car a bit longer, to get a PoleStar. This car is honestly in my opinion the SEXIEST car out there. I like sports car, muscle cars, but I like the look of Tesla and Volvo/Polestar more than the others total. I would rather drive this than a Bugatti in terms of looks. Looks like a bright future for Polestar and I think when everything goes electric Tesla having a headstart will be on top, but Geely will be right behind with the other Chinese brands going full force.

I want one now. :D

Hybrid cars are unnecessarily complicated and still use gas. Pure EV's are more simple and the future of transportation. Any car maker that is throwing resources at developing hybrids, isn't going to be around too much longer.

Phone-as-Key will not be functional and the standard key or activity key are the solutions.

where is this company based ?

its swedish, made by volvo

Another electric car company that somehow doesn't get it: I want to buy a car outright that's electric. I don't want to be connected to the company and/or have my car monitored by it over an internet connection that some hacker can hack into and least of all be tied to some effíng subscription "service" where the company continues to pull money out of my pocket for something that I am supposed to OWN! These so-called subscription services are nothing more than pure monthly GREED!


+Gareth M I agree. Just don't like the styling.

Get a Nissan Leaf. It's a good electric car, the most popular in the world, and it's literally just that. A normal, well made car, but electric.

@Polestar Thank you for making a full ev car with (kinda) small windows and for the upper window outline. Thanks for going all EV in the next years. This great!

hahaha what the hell is with this overdone intro...

All the features without the CEO blabbing about: 0:04 - Intro feature (Polestar facilities) 7:10 - Exterior design 26:20 - Interior design 35:30 - Maximilian Missoni (Head Designer) explaining the design 45:00 - Drive-off and some still images

The song At Last by Ane Brun doesn't exist according to my Internet. I've searched everywhere, even Spotify. Bloody weird.

Cringe.. but the car looks awesome!

polestar2.com Belgium and Netherlands are one of the first countries where the car becomes available, together with China, the United States, Canada, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Other countries will get the car at a later date.

Actually I might consider Polestar 2 as my next car. Only wish the performance figures could be a bit better than Tesla Model 3

Wrong guy to present the car, just horrible english as well..

Would look good in Nardo grey

I didn"t find Ane Brun - At Last......I think it was a bummer

Judging by the endless comments, he made a bad choice in wardrobe but, to be fair, how do we know his jacket is actually leather???

Me, I like my leather seats. And my chunks of burnt meat. Guess the Polestar is not my flavour.

Harma G ...heh-heh...good one. But I’m sure they’ll come up with a security counter-measure.

the rear light is pig ugly

+cba tiauhttps://electrek.co/2018/04/25/volvo-electrification-plan-fully-electric/ Volvo's strategy is to make everything they currently have a hybrid, then make more versions Electric then more and more until all are full electric or hybrid with no gas alternative. I think this is because of battery shortage and nothing else. It is that simple, there are not enough batteries and until they build their own plant or invest very heavily into one by another by Samsung, Panasonic, ect.. they will have to work with the supply constraint.

+Limp Wibbler I keep hearing that Volvo will NOT electrify their Cross Country wagons. Regarding Polestar, a performance wagon is not out of the question (Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, etc., all have performance wagons). And Polestar2 is "lifted"; I wish they would specify the ground clearance in inches or centimeters.

+cba tiauPolestar will almost certainly not do that. Polestar is specifically the Preformance brand of volvo, they just don't call it Volvo. It is like a BMW M5, it is the same as an M3, but more speed, acceleration, and horsepower. You will want a Volvo V90 cross country as you mentioned. Volvo confirmed ALL current models will have an electric variant in 5 years. Next year is the SUVs and Sedans, I think wagons are sadly last. Edit: I should clarify. They are taking it in steps so before an all electric version they will have a PHEV version of the cars.

I agree with you that Polestar2 is a sharp-looking car. I hope that Polestar comes out with a lifted wagon like the Volvo Cross Country. My dream would be a PHEV Cross Country wagon that goes 50-100 miles on electric-only, as I'm not quite ready for an all-electric car yet, since I do a lot of driving to areas far from cities and do a lot of cross-country driving for thousands of miles (and I don't want to detour and have to plan for charging stations when travelling).

lol... that is quite a post!

I, for one, think it's a dumb idea to have your phone allow your car to open and start. It's easier for a thief to steal a phone than a key, I would think...

You all have phones, right?

KnightMD it’s the limited production halo car.. of course you don’t know.. it’s either ignorance or you simply cannot afford the car

Forget Tesla, this is a car that is worth waiting for.

Copied Tesla all the way

All very flash. Annoyingly flash. But you don't "protect the planet" by making electric cars, especially luxury saloons. . All cars are users of materials and energy in their construction, and users of energy in their use, which even if it's entirely renewable, in turn relies on materials and energy in the construction of power source. This car is conventionally built of mild steel with some aluminium, and the bodywork will deteriorate over a relatively short time as all cars do. So efficiency isn't just related to energy but to longevity. A car manufacturer should be able to guarantee the body work and structure for 25 years of normal use. In addition, cars need space and city congestion will not be solved by electric cars. Cars are still the diversion of massive amounts of financial resources to personal mobility, which would be much better spent on health, public space, and ecological regeneration. The best electric car cannot compete with public transport in efficiency and minimal disruption to the planet. This is a car that a tiny, tiny fraction of the population of the planet could afford to drive or run, indeed a very small proportion of the population of even a rich country. In the long run such a machine is irrelevant to our future.

Best thing they did is implement Android and Google, stick that up you Apple garbage

Tesla is gone.

It feels like in a meeting of the communist party in SSSR: Presenter is under pressure and the audience are clapping for no reason. Everything feels fake. Did't someone said Sweden is a communist country, but no one says it publicly?

The car recognizes your phone? So, if you phone is lost or stolen, so is you car? I have an impression, Volvo are somehow desperate in this presentation. They repeat few thing over and over again. And of course, hypocrites: Vegan interior, presented in a leather jacket

Be it fake or imitation, they have gone for it. Good.

Ha, it looks like Thomas is a german?

Comment at 31:50 ...hope so that's not a yellow leather jacket....

It’s a yellow jacket for sure, but it’s vegan

Launching date

Cringe intensifying

+Polestar great presentation, congrats

Available global market

Bring back the C30

Imagine if this presentation happens 10 years ago, it would be amazing

OMG how fake

Finally all-electric from Volvo group. The all-electric XC40 will debut later this year, with the XC90 and XC60 to follow. I've sat in a Model X, and the seats were atrocious. Deal killer! Vastly inferior even to my 2006 XC90 seats, which are superb. Volvo designs it's seats with the advice of orthopedic surgeons, and it shows. And the specs are fantastic on the Polestar 2; 310 mile range on the WLTP standard, 150 KW charging capability. The range should be similar with the XCs, and with Electrify America putting up ultra-fast 150 KW chargers at breathe taking speed on the highways, 400 sites by the end of the year with more to come, Tesla has lost most of it's super-charging advantage.

I love their office! Lucky people to work there!

Less than 400 km in 2020?! haha


this car is fucking beautiful.

Use Google Assistant inside, but present the car with an iPhone

So, they have just released a car that only exists as computer graphics simulations with no running car ever produced . Cool , , ,

Huge central touch-screen: bad engineering, i.e., function following form. Loved a recent car commercial in which the touch-screen was touted as a great idea because the driver wouldn’t have to look at his/her phone.

The car is beautiful, I am looking forward to see pov reviews of the car and how good is android auto (most exciting thing about the car imo)

I am confused... Prototypes aren't running cars now?

Google should have granted them a Pixel for the presentation, it's not like if it would have cost them an arm

what's the problem saving the planet with consumerism?

of the most stupids comments, this is the stupidier of all

shit frame rate video mate

what about battery production? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RhtiPefVzM

So I like the Polestar 2, but the car is very comparable to the Tesla Model 3 but the price is higher. The Tesla has the charging network that the polestar 2 doesn't, so how would I justify paying almost $20,000 more?

@Polestar great presentation, congrats

@Gareth M I agree. Just don't like the styling.

I'm probably going to put a deposit on this car soon. I like it more than Tesla. More aggressive style and higher ground clearance.


Harmon/Kardon? Meh! Not a fan.. at all. Would have preferred B&W like on the Volvos. Also, while I do prefer their battery orientation over Tesla's, I'm just not a fan of pouch batteries. I prefer Tesla's (18650) cylinder type cells. Can't wait to see what the Polestar 3 will be all about. I am intrigued with their subscription plan. Two and three year. Thinking I could do that till Subaru (more my type) reveals their EV SUVs in a couple years.

Volvo i really need a car please pray for me

the intro is so funny. Not even one Chinese in the Chinese Plant!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ge0OS3k2PfM&t=27s see my review. non paid

More crap that costs lots of money and breaks. Sounds like a garage queen. Cost Parts availability, ease of maintenance, are very important.

This cooling plate... might be below efficiency compared to Tesla's cooling... The interior space taken over by battery is like Chevy volt

le meme show que tesla de plus on sent la copie

Am waiting for Polestar 3 :)

They studied Steve Job's Presentation.. really nice.

Seems great for Vegans

im surprised it recognized him saying "charging stations" it sounded like he said sharting stations

Much has been learnt from Tesla's example. Perhaps in addition to the driver's seat being the start button a security code could be added to be accessed from the centre console to prevent theft. Yes I did take note of the fact the car needs to recognise that your phone needs to also be present. My suggestion is in the advent of someone stealing either the phone or a bag containing the phone being accidentally left in the car, the thief will be dead out of luck without the dedicated access code. Tesla instigated just such a feature because of such circumstances; something much appreciated by its customers.

I still don't understand the need for a grill on these non-Tesla SUVs. Decent looking car but Tesla did all this 8 years ago. What has Volvo been doing for 8 years? Lower range, slower, no charging network, I'm guessing slower battery charging. The Tesla battery design has beaten this pouch cell design hands down already. I believe the BMWi3 has the same pouch cell - meh. Volvos have always been good but never sexy and never a leader.

Cringy slow talker guy way too long intro. Only thing I learned was the smart headlights. They had an applause sign in that studio. Nice looking car it looks like a Lincoln and a Chrysler got together. Why a grill in front of the car?

+Caillou in the thumbnail

That jacket do they make for men the car look a lot better

Can’t be that special, still has old fashioned exterior side view mirrors. Those mirrors should be replaced by far more aerodynamic tiny cameras, linked to the info screen. Bulky external mirrors are beyond obsolete.

the side mirror is a huge design flaw, do these guys really think BMW or Mercedes is stupid. a hit on the mirror will mean the whole unit is damaged. looks good, but not practical.

yellow jacket , white trainers. what an impression.

It's great to see a more serious attempt at challenging Tesla. The specs are good, the design fresh and alternative to what Tesla offers. Not a sight of a supercomputer with a promise of autonomy but the adaptive long lights are a good idea. Elon has made some waves. The more EVs, the better for all of us.

Tesla model S long range 600 km 78.000 £

Autonomous drive ? Did they have that ?

Just a decade behind.

He says "garden angel" , not "guardian angel".

Felicitaciones a todo el equipo de trabajo, que hace posible una movilidad mas amigable con los ecosistemas y esperamos poder tener esta tecnologia muy pronto en Sur Americaaa..Animooooooo...


OMG what a Tesla puke clone. Do they actually have a car????

I appreciate their respect for Tesla and showed appreciation to the Tesla Model 3.

Can I also open the car with a normal touchless key? Honest question! I never have my mobile phone's bluetooth "on", I always have it off, due to too many former security leaks and battery drain and radiation. I would HATE having to pull out my smartphone and activate bluetooth each time I want to open the car. No way. If this is the only way to enter the car, it is a show stopper for me, no matter how great the car were otherwise! Today I have a modern car with a normal remote key that resides permanently in my trousers' right 5th pocket, and there it stays and does not disturb me at all. That is perfectly fine.


When no one seems to realises this is in sweden and english is probably not that guys mother language. smh

What an unfortunate name....reminds me of a girl named Bambi...she was a pole star too.

This is truly Tesla killer with no empty ambitions it is much more beautiful and advanced then any existing model of Tesla Bravo Sweden love you warm greet from Ukraine))
