Polestar Shows the Precept Prototype Ahead of Geneva Debut

First look at the all-new Polestar Precept Prototype before its official world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2020, next week.

  • Polestar unveiled their Precept Prototype before its world debut;
  • The Polestar Precept Prototype’s cabin is made with durable materials;
  • More info will be given during the press presentation at the Geneva Motor Show.

Already, Polestar had shown some images of this prototype that the manufacturer will unveil at the Geneva Motor Show next week, but lo and behold, Polestar has finally lifted the veil on the Precept concept, a sedan that shows the direction that intends to take the brand in the coming years.

Obviously, Polestar wants to distance itself from Volvo in terms of design with this refreshing prototype. At the front, we still recognize a similar signature at the level of the optical units, the famous Thor’s hammer which is illustrated using the LED daytime running lights, but the diving hood has nothing to do with what is currently offered at Volvo. With the side view, we even recognize a resemblance to the Tesla Model S because of the almond windows, while the rear portion is much sharper with this thinned position light and the absence of a rear window.

Inside, the dashboard is streamlined as much as possible with two screens (one in the center 15 inches wide and the other behind the steering wheel 12.5 inches wide), while the four bucket seats are not unlike those who are bolted in the current Volvo models.

But, that’s not all, the Polestar Precept is also offering a more durable cabin … in terms of materials. In fact, we are talking about a fabric composed of recycled materials from plastic bottles, bolsters and headrests made from cork vinyl, while the carpets are made up of recovered finishing nets.

For the moment, Polestar keeps the technical details of this grandiose purely electric sedan under wraps, but there is hope for even more autonomy and power, in addition to all-wheel drive provided by two electric motors.

Obviously, we will know a lot more about the Polestar Precept prototype … and the future of the brand next week at the Geneva Motor Show 2020.
