    As an ex-owner of 3 Volvos, when I was presented the opportunity to lap the Polestar 1 I was quite excited. But the actual experience exceeded all expectations!
    The most surprising car of the year so far is definitely the Polestar 1. Not as fast as the Chiron or Senna, but not less exclusive. In case of a hypercar, you expect them to perform on track the way they do and beyond. Making a 2.350 kg GT fly and handle the way this marvel does however is something that defies traditional principles of automotive engineering. This was my first time in the car ever with no prior experience.

@El Mafico minimalism doesn't just mean "simple" or "free of features". It means functional. So compare the Polestar 1 with a Bentley continental GT, which is the same type of car but on the opposite side of the design spectrum. You'll see the polestar has simple features, straight lines, no chrome pieces that are added for flare. The rims aren't thin and sleek - they're blocky, basic, and functional. If you think IKEA furniture, you think of basic shapes with few components, flat undramatic surfaces, where form follows function. That's Scandinavian design. The opposite to that would be a chesterfield couch, which is the Bentley of furniture.

@Elias Håkansson you never saw some Hyundai or something like that I would say that is minimalism not this say me what is minimalistic here?

@kaaa I'm not exactly sure, but the thing all that added weight has in common is that it helps torque; electrical engines are a good tool to smooth out the torque curve for all of the ranges where the ICE is the weakest. Same with the turbo/supercharger combo; one of them peaks the torque curve at lower RPMs while the other peaks the torque curve at higher RPMs. And the best cure for weight that we know of is...... torque. And judging by Misha and everyone else I've seen drive it, it has been a good tradeoff. The car is quick and it drives super effortlessly.

The sad thing is it's a chinese brand since Volvo was bought by Geely. I'm a swede and I would never ever buy a Volvo again, sad but true. No money to the chinese communist dictatorship from my wallet, no matter how good the cars are. Too bad that so many people in my country (and in the rest of the world) put their blindfolds on and act as if nothing has happened, while feeding the dictatorship. 😕 Fook CCP.

That's one of my favorite laps of recent times. The agility it displays certainly reduces concern about it's weight. If anything it looked really planted and seemed to stay classy even at the edge of adhesion. Thanks Polestar for bringing one for Misha to drive, and thanks Misha for squeezing it enough to hear those Pzero's sing.

Amazing car, but if its not a Volvo, does the Polestar team still use the same design principles for safety as Volvo does? Does it protect like a Volvo in a crash, because Volvos are like tanks?
