Electric off-road rendering stuns
Takes Polestar design from road to dirt
We love a good concept rendering, and this is one of the best ones we’ve seen in a while. It comes from CCS grad Shubham Singh, who has interned at Yamaha and Lear, and has an incredible idea for what former Volvo brand Polestar could be. An electric off-roader that would make even the Jeep Wrangler jealous.
Singh posted the renderings and walked through his concept on Behance (via Auto Evolution), saying that the idea was “creating an electric based competitor of the baby SUV market and give Americans the true desire of commanding a small sustainable off-roader.
Called the Golem, it’s a far cry from the Polestar 1 and 2, but that brand’s move toward electrification and using recycled materials to improve sustainability go well with the attitude of off-roaders, piloting their vehicles along trails where few other visit.
The Polestar Golem concept has a short wheelbase and what looks like window-in-window giving it a frameless look like the Subaru SVX. The nose has some Isuzu Vehicross in it, but the Thor’s Hammer headlights of Polestar are clearly here as are the brand’s wraparound taillights.
A minimalist instrument cluster and shell seats keep the Polestar design theme going, and, you know what? Forget about all that. This electric off-roader is the coolest thing we’ve seen this week. Singh’s idea doesn’t have a removable top, but it does have massive expanses of glass, giant tires, near-zero overhangs, and the ability to take you nearly anywhere nearly silently. Sneaking up on nature, letting you see sights you haven’t seen before.
