Polestar, the new performance brand from Volvo, has announced a new headquarter in Torslanda, Sweden. Set to be completed in September 2018, the new headquarter is spread across 40,000 square feet of floor space over three storeys for 200 employees. And the new headquarter is situated in the same campus as the main Volvo Cars head offices and factory.
The new headquarters is the second major set-up from Polestar after the production facility in China. The interior and exterior design of the headquarters have been penned down by Bornstein and Lyckefors, the renowned Swedish architects, in close co-operation with Polestar. The facility also has exhibition and display areas for a number of cars.
Thomas Ingenlath, the chief executive officer of Polestar, commenting on the new facility, said, “The new Polestar headquarters will be the heart and home of our growing team. It is an architectural translation of what our brand stands for – it is pure and uncompromised. The open layout will serve as an inspiring and creative workspace for our rapidly-developing team of skilled co-workers. Moving to the Volvo Cars’ campus in Torslanda, in close proximity to our parent company, is also a key part of our close cooperation with them.”
Polestar’s first product, the 1, was revealed last year and is expected to hit the production line later this year. Following the 1, Polestar promises an all-electric 2 model that will commence production in late 2019. Polestar also plans an SUV as a third product which will be called the 3. Both of which will be developed ground-up in this Torslanda facility.
