A new and third episode of the series From Concept to Car (From the concept to the car) has just brought more details about the design of Polestar 5, an electric GT expected to arrive in 2024. As developments continue on the new base of the Swedish company No. United Kingdom, the design of the production vehicle is becoming as faithful as possible to the lines of the Precept concept.

Exterior designer Nahum Escobedo said that definitely "there are a lot of things that still need to be sorted out." However, Escobedo also claimed that the design tweaks will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Presented by Polestar at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, the Polestar Precept received positive impressions from the press and potential buyers..

Escobedo cited as inspiration for his work aircraft and even sharks (and also the nose shape of shark, referring to the car's aggressive front design, slightly tilted and pointed). In the final moments of the video, it is possible to notice (in a very fast scene) the electric sedan's license plate “very, very close” to the Concept engraved with the name Polestar 5.

Luxurious, sporty and sustainable

With sporting intentions, a software system powered by Android Auto and an interior filled with sustainable materials, the Volvo-related automaker presents a sedan with a hatchback in the rear. Polestar is calling it “a performance electric four-door Grand Touring,” meaning it might be enough to compete with other luxury EVs like the Tesla Model S, the Mercedes-Benz EQS, the Audi e-tron GT and the Lucid Air.

Regarding the ecologically responsible focus embraced by Polestar, internal panels and seat backs will be made of “linen-based composites”, which reduce body weight by up to 50% and achieve a reduction in plastic weight of up to 80%. The seats will be “3D knitted from recycled PET bottles [or polyethylene terephthalate]” and the headrests will be developed from recycled cork vinyl. For mats, recovered fishing nets should be used.

In the part of innovations intended by Polestar, the sedan will recognize the driver when he approaches the car, automatically preparing their favorite applications and settings. O Google Assistant you will be able to recognize more languages, including local accents, to be able to have more natural conversations. Polestar also envisions video streaming becoming a larger component of the in-car experience.

Only two vehicles from the Swedish company have been launched so far: the Polestar 1 hybrid coupe and the Polestar 2 all-electric fastback sedan. The Polestar 3, a crossover electric SUV, is expected to have more details revealed still this year, with its production scheduled to start next year. The company's fourth vehicle is also expected to be an SUV.
