Polestar has confirmed it will put the Precept into production.

Revealed earlier this year, the Polestar Precept started life as a manifesto to illustrate the brand's future vision and was described as a commitment car, not a concept car.

Polestar also plans to put much of the Precept's recycled interior into production
Showcasing the Swedish electric performance brand's future design direction, the Precept also highlights Polestar's path for digital technology and the use of innovative sustainable materials, inside and out.

The interior of Polestar Precept features a mix of sustainable materials including recycled Polyethylene terephthalate bottles, reclaimed fishing nets and recycled cork vinyl.

A flax-based composite developed by external partner Bcomp Ltd is featured in many interior and some exterior parts. Polestar's ambition is to bring much of this sustainability into production.

With product development underway, Polestar confirms it will produce the Precept in China, where a new production facility will be established. The aim is to ensure the facility will be carbon neutral and one of the most intelligent and connected automotive production facilities in the world.

This climate-positive narrative was started by Polestar's original manufacturing facility in Chengdu where the Polestar 1 is produced. Inaugurated in 2019, the Polestar Production Centre became the first LEED Gold-rated automotive production facility in China and runs on 100% renewable energy.
