The Polestar Precept study is slated to go into series production as the Polestar 5 in 2024. The Volvo subsidiary is accompanying the conversion from study to a production car with a YouTube series. We know that about the range and the possible price of the fully electric Grand Tourer.
Who the study Polestar As exciting as we did, Precept can now start saving: As Managing Director Thomas Ingenlath confirms, the fully electric Gran Tourer is to go into series production. Will the production model, which bears the name Polestar 5 and will be launched on the market in 2024, be allowed to keep the bold design? The answer is provided by the new YouTube series “Precept: From Concept to Car” by the Volvo subsidiary, in which the brand accompanies the conversion of the Precept study into the production model.
The designers want to stick to the design, which is visually different from the well-known models 1 and 2. They are still very much based on the design of the parent brand Volvo. The light signature “Thors Hammer” has been reinterpreted in the Precept and is divided into two parts. The characteristic, There is no stylized radiator grille – there is space here for a bar with sensors and cameras, which Polestar calls “SmartZone”.
Contrary to the trend to make such technology invisible, Polestar even labels the individual elements. The front hood is particularly striking, with an integrated wing designed to direct the airflow around the car in a particularly efficient manner. Cameras that replace the exterior mirrors also improve sophisticated aerodynamics. A so-called lidar pod (light detection and ranging) is located on the glass roof of the Polestar Precept (2024), which supplies the assistance systems with precise data on the environment – for example for autonomous driving. Polestar even labels the individual elements.

Polestar 5 will enter mass production in 2024
The space in the interior of the Polestar 5 (2024) should be generous despite the elegant silhouette and large battery in the underbody – thanks to a 3.1-meter wheelbase. The interior of the associated study is also characterized by many elements made from recycled materials. The seats are made from recycled PET bottles using a 3D process, while the upholstery and headrests are made from recycled cork vinyl. Recycled fishing nets are used for the carpets, while the interior linings and backrests are made from flax composite material from Bcomp.

The latter should even bring a weight saving of up to 50 percent compared to conventional materials. The cockpit is dominated by two screens connected by a luminous frame. The instruments are shown on a 12.5-inch display. The brand’s new infotainment system, which was developed in close cooperation with Google, is operated via the central 15-inch touchscreen of the Polestar Precept (2024). Exciting: Thanks to eye-tracking technology, the screens should also be able to be controlled with a glimpse.
