This all-new concept electric vehicle is nothing like you have seen from Polestar. It looks like a Tesla and Citroën mash up. But that’s just me. Anywho, the Polestar Precept is powered… wait… nope, we do not have information on that. Neither do we know anything about its battery system.
But I guess those aren’t important, for now, for a car that looks this stunning. I maybe biased. I am just digging the sleek and minimalistic modern lines and the fast back just beckon me to take a few more look. Yes, I do have a thing for fastback.
In lieu of technical details, Polestar wants us to know that Precept Concept is the vision of the company. And what’s that vision? Sustainability, from the production of the car and to the end of the car’s life cycle.
The press release is mostly about the sustainable materials with focus on the interior and some advanced technology. On the sustainability aspect, the seats are of 3D knit materials that are made from 100% recycled yarn derived from PET bottles and it is made exactly to size, thus eliminating off cuts. And then there’s the fiber-based panels that is lighter, stronger and uses 80 percent less plastic.
Like Polestar 2, Polestar Precept features Android, now bolstered by a proximity sensor that wakes up the infotainment with more information and large buttons when it senses your hand approaching.
Another highlight is the eye tracking system that keep tracks if the driver is tire or is driver watching the road, and take necessary appropriate measures warning or even reducing the speed of the vehicle.
Finally, there’s fully contextualized navigation and in place of grilles needed for IC engine cars, it has a front loaded with sensors which Polestar dubbed SmartZone.
Those are what we know for now. Since Geneva International Motor Show is canceled due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, you will have hit up Polestar website for more details and updates.
