More Important Notes
Ingenlath said “Once we did the precept and stood in front looking at it….my God. Sometimes you just do something and you’re really tempted.”
He also said that after they revealed the precept, they read articles on it and had people seeing it. And that gave them the conviction that the design was what people liked and that it could be a real hit.
The brand boss furthermore said that the precept is “at least three years from being ready for production”.
He however added by saying that the machine will follow Polestar’s number-based nomenclature. But it will be called Precept as it used to during development. He also so said that the exact number used would depend on where the firm’s model launch plans the production Precept comes.
Inglenlath hinted it would have a “competitive” range and the performance required to put it on par in the premium sports cars market. Even though Polestar hasn’t revealed any firm technical details or targets for the Precept.
The precept concept is 3.1 meters long, and this is 150mm longer than a Model S. And Polestar say it is to create rear head and legroom, and also to allow for a large battery.

The Polestar will be manufactured in China, which is Polestars’ home market, an all-new manufacturing facility that is recently planned. The plant will not only be carbon neutral but also one of the most connected and intelligent automotive facilities worldwide.
