Polestar has confirmed the Precept will make it into production.

The brand says the decision was made due to overwhelming feedback, following the release of the vehicle as a concept back in April 2020.

Development has already begun on the PolestarVolvo's all-electric performance brand – which introduces its own sleek design language with the Precept.

"The public said, ‘We want it’, so we decided to build it,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.

Much of the Precept has been produced using sustainable materials, with recycled plastics, cork vinyl, and flax-based composites featured throughout.

"Consumers want to see change from this industry – not just dreams," Mr. Ingenlath said.

"We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our cars and our business. The aim has to be climate neutrality, even though I recognize that is a long-term goal."

While no specifications have been released, it's possible the Precept could share its powertrain with the Polestar 2, which offers 300kW/660Nm from two electric motors driving each axle. Driving range for the Polestar 2 is around 500km (WLTP test cycle).

The announcement was made at the 2020 Beijing Auto Show, where it was revealed the Precept would be manufactured at a brand-new carbon-neutral production facility in China.
