The Polestar 1 is tested in every conceivable condition and environment. These cars are optimized for snow, rain, blistering heat, arctic cold, and every road surface imaginable.
The Polestar 1 will provide a peerless driver experience under any circumstances, and the testing process is designed to make that a certainty.It’s not enough to only test for the predictable, however.
It’s also imperative to test for the unpredictable. Accidents aren’t planned, but they can be planned for. And plan for them we do, by putting the verification prototype cars through crash tests at different speeds and various angles. It’s dramatic. It’s exhilarating. And it’s necessary.
The Polestar 1 was tested in a simulated front on collision at 56 km/h, in contrast to a standard steel body vehlice, carbon fibre dissipates energy by cracking and shattering, the structure remained rigid and did not show signs of bending or misalignment after the crash.The Team reports that it was a success.
