In the in the fourth episode of its YouTube documentary series, “Precept: from Concept to Car”, Polestar has provided the sources of inspiration behind the interior design of the Precept concept.
The web series documents the transformation of the Polestar Precept concept car into the Polestar 5 – an electric performance 4-door GT set to be launched in 2024.
Limits lead to creativity. Innovative solutions are what’s needed to overcome barriers, obstacles, and restrictions. Like, for instance, the limited space inside a car.
Precept’s interior is defined by sustainability and offered opportunity to work with new materials and processes. Sustainable new interior materials balance modern high-tech luxury with reduced environmental impact. Bcomp’s flax-based composites for interior panels and seatbacks offer significant improvements over conventional materials, including up to 50% saving in weight and up to 80% reduction of plastic waste. Seat surfaces are 3D-knitted from recycled PET bottles, bolsters and headrests are made from recycled cork vinyl, while carpets are made from reclaimed fishing nets. These elements, combined with digital artistry, define a new premium luxury that surpasses the conventions of leather, wood and chrome.
