With the Polestar Precept, the Volvo subsidiary presented a study at the beginning of 2020 that is formally reminiscent of the Taycan. Head designer Maximilian Missoni has now confirmed to the magazine 'Edison' that we have some design elements of the Precept concept car at P olestar 3 and Polestar 4 will be seen again.

Precept is a 'liberation'

The Precept study is a 'liberation' for the brand and by the Volvo parent company, but at the same time also from many conventions in traditional automobile construction, according to the designer, who studied vehicle design in London and has been since Took responsibility for design at Volvo in 2012 and later at Polestar. 'The car [the Polestar Precept; editor's note] is not a dream, it conveys ideas with a realistic background,' says the former VW designer.

And the Precept should have this realistic background. Study have already shown concretely. So far all Polestar studies have only been close to series production with small concessions. Accordingly, in 2022 we will see an all-wheel-drive grand tourer around five meters long with a wheelbase of 3.1 meters.

120 kWh battery capacity

It is questionable whether the opposing ones will Creating series production of doors without a B-pillar. Despite the low silhouette, the battery packs are housed in the bottom of the Polestar 4. These should have a capacity of 120 kWh. The operating concept with eye tracking sensor will make it into series production. This captures the driver's gaze and controls content accordingly on the various screens. In addition, numerous sensors supply the infotainment system with data on the course of the road, weather and traffic situation.

With the Polestar 4, the company is providing the fourth electric model. The two-door Polestar 1 started as a hybrid sports car with 609 hp, followed in 2020 by the five-door Polestar 2 hatchback sedan as a pure electric model with 408 hp. The Polestar 3 will be a fully electric SUV that will hit the market from 2021.
