In a clear indication that it seeks to outpace Tesla, Polestar Chief Executive Officer, Thomas Ingenlath, recently cast a dark shadow over Elon Musk’s electric vehicle (EV) empire, unveiling a fleet of prototypes testing three, four, and five EVs.
Speaking at the Polestar Innovation Summit in Shanghai, Ingenlath highlighted the company’s commitment to developing an expansive range of EVs to meet the needs of a burgeoning customer base.
“We are on a mission to bring attractive electric cars to the market in all relevant segments,” he said, before adding that “Polestar is developing a portfolio of fully electric vehicles.”
The prototypes seen at the summit, which included a sedan, a coupe, and a five-door SUV, were equipped with the latest in-car-infotainment and advanced driver-assistance systems.
The vehicles also featured a range of cutting-edge battery technology, including a new battery module developed in partnership with LG Chem, and a new “Smart Power Grid” which can optimize the efficiency of the battery system.
Ingenlath also confirmed that Polestar is closely monitoring and evaluating the customer experience of its vehicles, and that the company is confident in its ability to deliver a superior product to customers.
“We owe it to our customers to be the most reliable and safest car on the market,” he said.
In a direct challenge to Tesla, Ingenlath concluded his remarks by noting that Polestar’s EVs are designed to be “the best electric cars in the world.”
