Polestar debuted the Polestar Precept, a gorgeous sports sedan concept car with the interior of durable material, at the start of this year. A car that is similar to the Volvo XC40 that competes with the Tesla Model 3. Polestar has a really unique offering with this model, especially when it comes to driving characteristics.
Polestar’s tangible future in design, technology, and sustainability is showcased in the Precept, which will be unveiled in March 2020. Since then, Polestar has confirmed that the Polestar Precept would be built. The project is well advanced, and work on bringing this ground-breaking electric vehicle to market is moving forward at a steady pace. The business has stated that it hopes to create an entirely new production facility in China dedicated to the Precept, which will be carbon neutral.
“We look forward to taking the Precept to this iconic event,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “It’s great to be able to show the car to visitors, especially as our British R&D team in Coventry is leading the development of the project.”
Interior Design of Polestar Precept
Polestar should keep the inside of the concept car when the Precept goes into production. It’s made of ecological materials like flax, recycled cork, recycled plastic bottles, and reclaimed fishing nets, and it looks great. Two rows of captain’s chairs provide seating for four people, though the production automobile may additionally include a rear bench seat. The Precept, like many electric cars, should have two trunks: one in the back, like a regular sedan, and a smaller one up front.
Exterior Design of Polestar Precept
The Polestar Polestar’s lack of mirrors is a crucial design feature. Because the Present lacks a back window, it relies on cameras instead. It has a rear sunroof in the sense that the car’s glass roof extends beyond the back passenger seats, creating a panoramic view.
Engine & Battery of Polestar Precept
We can expect the Precept to have two electric motors, one in the front and one in the back to provide basic all-wheel drive, similar to the smaller Polestar 2 sedan. The Polestar 2’s setup produces a total of 402 horsepower, allowing it to reach 100 km / hr in just 4.1 seconds at our test track. To put further pressure on performance-oriented editions of the Taycan and Model S, the Polestar Precept is expected to have a higher horsepower figure and be slightly faster than the Polestar 2. The company hasn’t released any fuel economy estimates for the Precept yet, and those numbers won’t likely surface until closer to the car’s on-sale date.
The Polestar Precept will need to deliver at least 650 kilometers of driving range per charge to compete with tomorrow’s EV luxury vehicles. Polestar would be prudent to aim for the bogie of the Model S and the Air, which both feature variants with more than 500 kilometers per charge. All of the latest charging techniques, including Level 2 home charging and DC fast charging for public stations, are anticipated to be available.
Features & Specs of Polestar Precept
The vegan interior is stunning in and of itself, but it’s the Precept’s infotainment screen that piqued our interest. Polestar’s Google-powered Human Machine Interface will be included in the Polestar Precept. To understand local dialects, this device will function as a co-pilot using powerful speech technologies. While the vehicle is charging, it will allow video streaming and app functionalities.
Polestar recognizes that as vehicle screens grow increasingly common, the risk of being distracted by them increases. Eye-tracking technology in the Polestar Precept HMI system keeps track of how long the driver is staring down at the screen. When a hand approaches the screen, proximity sensors detect it. According to the situation, the screen will modify the in-car displays. The screen’s display will increase buttons and sliders as the driver’s hand approaches, making selection more accessible.
Price of Polestar Precept
Polestar’s standard warranty coverage may alter between now and 2023, but as of this writing, the business offers a pretty basic warranty package that matches that of key competitor Tesla. Despite the fact that Polestar is a Volvo spin-off, the Swedish automaker does not provide free planned maintenance. A four-year or 80,000 kilometers limited warranty is offered. For eight years or 1,60,000 kilometers, electrical components are covered. There is no maintenance included in the package.
No word has been said about the price and when the Polestar Precept will go into production. It is clear that a new factory is going to be built for it. Production will therefore not start this year. Polestar has also not yet released information on price, battery size, range, and engine configuration.
