Formed in May 2019, the U.K. arm of Polestar's R&D team has now more than doubled in size to 125 employees. As Polestar's model range grows with the introduction of the Polestar 2 later this summer, so too will the U.K. R&D department.

Based in Coventry, the original heart of U.K. automotive engineering, Polestar U.K. draws on the region's rich history of producing the most talented engineers the country can offer.

With a workforce comprising widespread talent as young as just 22, Polestar U.K. has a diverse range of employees with backgrounds ranging from high-volume passenger cars to specialist motorsport applications.

The U.K. team concentrates on body and trim, chassis, electrical integration and vehicle attributes, though Polestar U.K. also hosts a variety of manufacturing and purchasing staff besides its engineering specialists. Working directly with the Polestar R&D team in Sweden, the U.K. engineers are contributing towards the work on future Polestar models beyond the Polestar 3. By using state of the art virtual reality systems they can communicate in real time with the engineers in Sweden to develop future models quickly and efficiently.
