Progress

Design brief
2022

Pure, progressive performance.

The brief was to design a Polestar that is about the experience of performance, and the advanced technical story that enables this in a sustainable way. In other words, a new form of performance. One for the electric age.

Submissions are closed.
The finalists have been announced.

This year’s contest will have two winners. One for exterior design, and one for interior design, along with an honourable mention. The exterior and interior design winners will have their designs merged into one with the help of the Polestar Design team. The resulting design will then be realised as a full-scale model, with a digitally rendered interior, which will be displayed at the 2023 Shanghai Auto Show. The winners will also be invited to attend the motor show, will travel and accommodation covered by Polestar. The honourable mention will receive a tablet and other equipment to help them in their design career.

The jury





The second iteration of the Polestar Design Contest featured the same creativity, enthusiasm, and innovation that defined the first contest. From treehouses to trambuses, VTOL craft to virtual vehicles, the field was crowded and the competition fierce.
