Polestar Precept four-door grand tourer EV unveiled
Polestar has unveiled the Precept grand tourer electric vehicle globally. The Precept is a future-oriented EV based on the brand's performance strategy and will showcase the innovative techniques to be implemented on future vehicles. Precept will come with the inclusion of sustainable materials such as flax-based composites for interior panels and seatbacks, saving up to 50% weight and up to 80% reduction of plastic waste.
Overall the Percept EV is tech-laden, whether it's exterior or interior. The front grille replaces the traditional air-intake passage with safety sensors and driver assistance functions. Also, to enhance airflow, there is a wing above the front grille which supplies the air to the system and improves aerodynamic efficiency.
Inside the cabin, the Percept offers next-generation HMI (Human Machine Interface) powered by Android, with a 15-inch centre infotainment touch screen and a 12.5-inch driver display. The seats of the Percept are made up of recycled PET bottles, 3D-knitted along with headrests and bolsters.
Maximilian Missoni, head of Design at Polestar, says: "Polestar Precept's aesthetics are rooted in cutting-edge technology rather than looking back in time at historical, automotive references. At Polestar we see technology as an enabler, as a tool to solve our society's problems and we translated this attitude into a new set of design principles. The combination of sustainable materials and high-tech smart systems opens an entirely new chapter of avant-garde luxury design and shows where Polestar is heading."
