The Swedish electric car brand, Polestar, returns to the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 23, 2022, and will debut a Polestar 5 prototype. Likewise, the new and powerful limited-edition Polestar 2 BST edition 270 will debut. In addition, the Polestar electric roadster concept vehicle and the existing range will also be on site.
"Goodwood is our favorite place to showcase our cars in an enthusiastic environment," said Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar. "This year, we are particularly excited to be able to show the Polestar 5 driving up the hill! Our UK R&D team is excellently developing the vehicle, and we are proud to highlight their hard work at this early stage."
The Polestar 5 prototype will be displayed in the First Glance Paddock and will complete several runs up the hill during the event. Meanwhile, the Polestar main stand will feature Polestar Precept – the concept vehicle from which the Polestar 5 evolves – along with the Polestar electric roadster concept and the Polestar 2 BST edition 270.
The recently updated Polestar 2 will be presented on Electric Avenue. In addition to the main event area in Molecomb, Polestar will again be offering its exclusive test drives, which will allow those interested in booking a ride with the Polestar 2 on a closed track on site.
Polestar has unveiled various electric vehicles at the iconic event, including the prototype Polestar 1 in 2018 and the Experimental Polestar 2 in 2021. The limited-edition Polestar 1 in the 'Sun' matte gold livery and the Experimental Polestar 2 will be positioned next to the Polestar 5 prototype in the First Glance paddock, also heading up the hill.
In line with the ongoing development of the Polestar 5, the latest episode of the YouTube documentary series Precept: From Concept to Car (video) shows the process of designing the interior of the production vehicle.
Polestar plans to list on the Nasdaq as part of a proposed combination with Gores Guggenheim, which is expected to close by June 2022.
