Polestar establishes new UK R&D facility to create future electric performance cars

Polestar has significantly expanded its research and development capacity with the establishment of a new R&D center in the United Kingdom. Situated in Coventry, England, the new facility will allow Polestar to increase its own R&D capabilities, and further strengthens the brand’s ability to engineer its future electric performance vehicles.

Polestar’s UK engineering operation will initially employ around 60 engineers who will specifically support the development of future Polestar cars, beyond Polestar 3. These engineers have already been involved in preliminary development work for Polestar, and will now be fully immersed into future Polestar car projects as part of the global Polestar engineering network.

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. These engineers will be a great complement to our existing R&D team based in Sweden, and other supporting teams around the world.

—Hans Pehrson, responsible for Research and Development at Polestar
