Polestar has presented new findings that reveals strong consumer demand for legislation towards a faster switch to electric cars.

The global study, involving 18,000 participants in 19 markets across North America, Asia Pacific and Europe, reveals that 34% of consumers are in favour of a ban of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cars by 2030, a number that rises to 47% in a 2035 scenario.

Polestar is intent on pushing the EV agenda at an even more breakneck-pace while accusing policy makers for not doing enough
The new study also finds that three-quarters of those surveyed believe society needs to consume differently to preserve the climate and the environment for future generations.

In tandem, to coincide with Climate Week NYC and European Mobility Week, Polestar follows up on its 'Set in Stone' film. A new campaign shows how lack of climate action from the car industry turned what was supposed to be a historical document of promises into a historical document of silence.

Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, also insists that the global ban on ICE vehicles must come sooner. He claims that we are living in 'an EV bubble, not an EV boom' which is insufficient, and that governments need to lead the charge with more robust policies so that manufacturers can confidently go electric.
