I’m all for EVs when they go beyond what’s expected in terms of environmental consciousness. For example, the Fisker Karma back when it was new was so intriguing to me. Solar panels on the roof, naturally fallen tree wood grain, and no real leather make it sound like the car would be cheap and yet it looked refined. This Polestar Precept is giving me the same sort of vibe. It shows people that “going green” and getting an EV doesn’t mean you have to get a Prius or Volt, you can have class and style.
Tesla to an extent has also been a big influencer in this idea. The idea of getting a solid, affordable electric vehicle is relatively normal since the birth of the Model 3. That being said, I hope that the Polestar here does well and inspires other companies to incorporate the renewable materials that are being showcased here. Thoughts on where else we will see this in the future?

Who would have thought consumers would be begging for a vehicle made from fishing net and recycled cork, but that is the case with the Polestar Precept which was originally a concept, but consumers wanted it so bad Polestar decided to build it. Polestar is a spin off brand from Volvo focused on EV and self driving vehicles, and the Precept is an EV sedan made from sustainable materials including fishing net, flax based composite, and recycled cork. Despite the barbaric materials, it features advanced technology such as lidar for driver assit. More details on this sedan to follow! Thoughts on the Precept?
