Polestar and Mobileye are to cooperate to make Polestar 4 the first production car to feature Mobileye’s Chauffeur autonomous driving technology – to be integrated by ECARX and with potential application in future Polestar vehicles.
Mobileye produces leading advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) technology which is already fitted to over 150 million cars worldwide.
Polestar 4, which goes on sale in China today and globally in 2024, lays the foundation for this technology by featuring a Mobileye SuperVision-based ADAS from the start. First deliveries in China are expected before the end of 2023.
When launched in the coming years, Chauffeur is expected to offer eyes-off, point-to-point autonomous driving on highways, as well as eyes-on automated driving for other environments.
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, comments: “I am really happy with how Polestar 4’s production readiness is advancing. A collaboration with Mobileye can significantly push innovation in our Polestar 4 electric performance SUV coupé. We know that driving yourself is not always fun and exciting – this technology means our customers could enable autonomous driving when they want, making all future journeys enjoyable.”
Polestar 4 combines distinct design elements from the Polestar Precept concept car with the aerodynamic lines of a coupé and the space and comfort of a modern SUV. It is positioned between Polestar 2 and Polestar 3 in terms of size and price.
