Polestar's Latest Concept Is More Than An EV

Polestar's Latest Concept Is More Than An EV

Posted by Max R on 4th Mar 2022

This past Wednesday, Polestar announced their latest concept car which is built upon the same design language as the Precept, Polestar’s first concept which debuted in 2020.


The O2 is a hard-top convertible roadster that aims to deliver performance, a characteristic Polestar is building their brand around. Polestar’s Head of Design, Maximilian Missoni, seemingly takes a shot at Tesla with his statement, “… we are about more than just straight line sprints. It’s when you turn the steering wheel that the true fun begins.”

The Tesla Model S Plaid touts a sub-two second 0-60 time. While we don’t know quite yet how quick the O2 may be off the line, the car wasn’t designed for that. The O2 is constructed with nimbleness in mind.
