The Polestar Precept was originally going to be revealed at the Geneva Autoshow, before it was unfortunately canceled. It is low-hung, has four-seats, and four-doors and it resembles a Swedish version of the Porsche Taycan.

Sustainability and Performance

There are no details on what will power the Precept concept, but so far we know that its architecture will be built based on the new SPA2 vehicle. It will be incorporating a large under-floor battery back and have electric drive motors at both the front and rear axles. There would also be room for a configuration to fit under the Precept’s surface.

The Polestar design chief, Max Missoni, said that it’s time to show just how pure, progressive, and sustainable they want the vehicle to look when compared to the Volvo lineup. Sustainability is important and so is its appearance.

There is a panoramic glass roof and no rear windows on the Precept. Missoni and his team rely on rear cameras to improve visibility while maximizing the aerodynamic efficiency. Android powers the Precept’s user interface and it builds on the car’s collaboration with Google. The system is designed to recognize the driver as they approach through the settings and person content on Polestar’s digital key.

The vehicle has a large portrait-oriented 15-inch touch screen in the center of the console along with a 12.5-inch driver display. There are eye-tracking monitors in the system so the information can adjust to where the driver is looking. The information will appear smaller and more detailed when the driver is looking at the display and larger and brighter while only showing vital information when the driver has their eyes on the road.

The sustainability and performance of the Polestar Precept were definitely put to the test by the Volvo brand.
