The Polestar Precept showcases that the Volvo subsidiary wants its future full-electric models to be minimalistic and aerodynamic on the outside while offering high-tech features and sustainable solutions inside.
“Precept is a declaration, a vision of what Polestar stands for and what makes the brand relevant,” Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a release. “The car is a response to the clear challenges our society and industry face.”
One of those challenges is providing long-range emissions-free mobility. To do that while preserving battery power Polestar knows its next models will need to be extremely sleek.
One way that drag was reduced on the Precept was by replacing the side mirrors with cameras, which is something automakers and suppliers such as Aston Martin and Gentex are also developing.
Above the grille the four-door grand tourer has been designed to accelerate air flow over the car’s long hood. This allows air to attach itself to the surface earlier, which improves aerodynamic efficiency, boosting the vehicle’s range.
At the rear, the Precept has a wide light blade that spans the width of the car, extending into vertical aero-wings that further enhance aerodynamics.
