Polestar Precept was supposed to be a highlight of the electric car maker’s geneva motor show, but had to cancel the international event because of the new corona virus pandemic, according tomedia, but that doesn’t mean the beautiful concept car won’t be the focus. Polestar, the company behind the concept car, has shared more details about the car.
Polestar started with polestar 1, a hybrid power eduth, which started out as a Volvo concept car. Since then, Polestar has further widened its gap with its Swedish counterparts by launching the all-electric Polestar 2, a cheaper back-sno-car that has just started production at The Bridge in Zhejiang, China.
Then there’s the Polestar 3, the brand’s first SUV. Still, you can expect more from Polestar Precept than just the shape.
Obviously, this concept car continues the previous green philosophy, and it hides it all.
Linen-based natural composites replace plastics, and powerRibs technology, developed by partner Bcomp, uses leaf-like skeletons to increase the structural strength of the car while reducing its weight. To avoid waste and gap finishing, 3D knitted fabrics made from recycled PET bottles use a single-threaded process; carpets use Nylon 6, recycled from old fishing nets, while vinyl materials from seat cushions and headrests come from recycled and discarded bottle corks.
In addition to the obvious elements such as 22-inch tires and Raytheon-shaped headlights, Polestar Precept spally incorporates many emerging technologies – lidar mounted on the roof, radar and ultrasonic sensors embedded in the grille, SmartZones sensor hubs on both sides of the car.
Considering that this is a slender, slim back-to-back coupe, the rear hinged door is very conceptually friendly. With the new Android system, everything just looks good.
A 15-inch touchscreen is installed at the Precept dashboard, which is pre-installed based on a system built on the first version of Android OS, which will be launched this year in Polestar 2. The car is awakened as the Polestar digital key approaches and the contents of the screen are adjusted by approaching the sensor based on the position of the user’s hand.
Of course, Google Maps and Google Voice Assistant are not absent members. This time, however, the navigation system and the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) have been combined so that the car will travel more accurately depending on traffic and other road conditions.
“People always ask me, ‘What’s the future of Polestar?’ “Of course, we haven’t shown our future models yet, but Precept shows you where we’re going in the future – where we’re going, our ambitions for sustainability, and the great digital user experience we’re going to bring to the cars of the future,” said Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar. Precept shows our future, not fantasy or sci-fi movies. This is the reality that we will achieve in the future. “
