Polestar Precept concept revealed for Geneva motor show

Polestar, the all-electric performance brand spun out of the Volvo business in 2017, has unveiled a first look at its next-generation design and technology plans: the Precept concept. Focusing more on technology than performance, Polestar has previewed the Precept's style, aerodynamics and safety features over its drive systems – although something similar to the Polestar 1's 441kW, 1000Nm drive system may be lurking under the skin.

But one manufacturer is of the opinion politics shouldn't really have a role in the phasing-in of the technology of the future.
