An electric vehicle successfully takes tailpipe emissions out of the environmental equation. Fact. Charge it with renewable energy and its impact flatlines. Great. But while all this is preferable to a traditionally fuelled vehicle that will continue to pollute throughout its lifetime, a Polestar 2 still leaves the factory gates with a 26-ton CO2e production footprint. And we believe it doesn’t have to.
In fact, we’re committing to creating a completely climate-neutral car by 2030. Without offsetting emissions.
“For the first time, we can dare to dream about a future with climate-neutral, circular but still beautiful cars, and, of course, air that is cleaner to breathe,” said Fredrika Klarén, Head of Sustainability at Polestar.
