The new research site in the U.K.'s MIRA technology park will open Polestar to a pool of world-renowned automotive engineering talent.

20 Sep 2021 | International News : U.K.

Polestar is rapidly growing its global engineering capability with the expansion of a world-class research and development hub in the U.K.

With the addition of the new site, the now 250-strong U.K. team has more than doubled in size and will continue to expand beyond 500 people in the future.

Polestar's new facilities will be situated at the MIRA Technology Park - a world-class automotive testing and development site in the U.K.'s Midlands. Ideally placed to take advantage of the world-renowned automotive engineering talent pool located in and around the area, the U.K. team has diverse expertise rarely seen within traditional OEMs. It will also play a crucial role in the brand's continued evolution, immediately focusing on the development of the Polestar Precept, first revealed in 2020, and confirmed for production before 2025.

The expansion of Polestar's research and development capabilities follows on from the continued growth of its model lineup, plans to increase its global sales footprint by the end of 2022, and the move to manufacture the Polestar 3 in the U.S.A as well as China.
