Polestar has today revealed its stunning Precept electric concept car, providing a visual sign post for what’s to come from the innovative Swedish brand. Featuring the company’s aspirations for sustainability, technology and design, the Precept was revealed online via a slick short film hosted by Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath.
Based around a sleek and sporty four-door exterior body design, the Precept features two exciting new next-gen HMI technologies, based around an Android operating system. Firstly, eye-tracking knows where the driver is looking at any given time and adjusts the different in-car displays accordingly. Not only is this more convenient for the driver, it also provides greater levels of safety through driver condition monitoring.
The second is a new proximity sensor that ensures dials on the touchscreen are only visible to the driver as their hand reaches out to touch it, in effect, cleverly providing the best of both worlds.
From a sustainability point of view, the Precept also manages to considerably reduce the amount of virgin plastics used in its cabin, utilising high amounts of natural and recycled material for both the interior panels and the seats. None of these materials come at the expense of design or quality however. “If anything, they enable even more premium, cutting-edge, modern and stylish executions which elevate our design-led products,” states Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni.
Overall, it’s an enticing prospect, and one that is fully suited to a future market that, according to Polestar, will demand increasingly sustainable and desirable electric vehicles.
