Volvo will fight Tesla: look at the new electric car from Polestar
The cancellation of the Geneva Motor Show due to the global pandemic somehow affected the plans of all automakers. The Swedish company Polestar, which is engaged in the production of electric vehicles, for the first time showed a new concept car Precept online. Now, Tom Ingenlat, CEO, has shared the first details about the future of this unusual prototype.
According to Ingenlath, Precept is not just a futuristic prototype. If the first two Polestar models were more like Volvo cars, then the next cars will be inspired by just such a space design.
Precept is an electric four-door coupe with a long wheelbase (3.1 meters) and a low, sleek silhouette. Instead of the front grille, the concept car has a Precept SmartZone panel. There was a place in it for sensors, cameras and other driver assistance devices. Lidar moved upstairs to the glass roof.
Instead of side mirrors, the prototype offers video cameras. That is why the tailgate has a larger opening and higher hinges for better access.
Inside Precept is the pinnacle of secondary production. The seat upholstery is made from recycled bottles, the rollers and head restraints are made from recycled cork vinyl, and the carpets are from fishing nets. the infotainment gadget located within the prototype runs on android and uses a fifteen-inch portrait central touch screen and a 12.5-inch “driver” dashboard.
