UK gears up for electric car revolution

Polestar, the Volvo Cars electric performance brand, has significantly expanded its research and development capacity with the establishment of a new centre in the UK. Situated in Coventry, England, the new facility will allow Polestar to increase its ability to engineer future electric performance vehicles.

Hans Pehrson, responsible for research and development at Polestar, comments: “Polestar’s role as a technology spearhead requires new and developing skills in low-volume, light-weight, multi-material performance car engineering, and the new UK operation will allow us to take the next steps towards our future cars. “The team that will kick start the new UK R&D subsidiary is already well-versed in Polestar engineering philosophy, and we will expand the initial team further during the course of 2019.”
