A Swedish automotive brand Polestar has unveiled the concept of its new Polestar O2 electric roadster during its debut in Los Angeles this Wednesday.
It was presented as a futuristic super-hero all-electric car by the brand’s CEO Thomas Ingenlath:
“Polestar O2 is the hero car for our brand. It opens the door to our secret chamber of future potential. This is a taste of what we can design and engineer with the talent and technology we have in-house. It looks incredible, and being able to lower the roof and not hear an engine promises a superb sensation.” This hard-top convertible takes its design from the Swedish electric brand Percept yet it goes even further by adopting new technological ideas reflected in its aluminum platform. Polestar O2 is believed to become a potential Tesla Roadster rival.
As the brand is determined to become environmentally friendly, the Polestar O2 interior is made from a new thermoplastic mono-material, making separation before recycling unnecessary.
With the development of the O2, the brand’s main goals are to build an image as a “luxury sports brand” as well as to push internal development.
