Polestar Uses Blockchain to Tackle Carbon Emissions in its Electric Vehicle
There are a lot of innovative features and improvements that have been added to the Polestar 2 model, the corporation’s first-ever completely electric car, which was launched in 2019. This time around, Polestar updated its popular all-electric SUV with a slew of new features, the most visible of which is a new color palette.
Additionally, the Polestar 2 comes with a basic 19-inch wheel and an optional 20-inch wheel option. With the Plus Pack, customers will be able to choose the temperature range of their vehicle from 20 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit.
There are several appealing new features in the Polestar 2, including a decreased carbon emission profile. This decision was made by Polestar, a firm that has long been committed to reducing its carbon footprint by switching to parts that utilize renewable power.
As a result of this choice, Polestar is now able to use blockchain to track certain minerals from their source to a single vehicle, reducing carbon emissions per vehicle. To guarantee that its electric vehicles are constructed in compliance with ethical mining norms and advance in offering a sustainable lifetime from the production line to the user, the idea works hand in hand with Polestar’s objective to generate a more balanced economy.
Recently, the Polestar fastback EV received significant modifications with the announcement of the Long Range Single Motor Polestar. That was in September 2021. A new partnership with Circulor has increased the total capacity of its internal batteries, however. The firm’s blockchain mica and cobalt monitoring technology will help Polestar better its ethical principles in the production process.
During a media release, Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath expressed his excitement for the upcoming Polestar 2 enhancements.
“For the second iteration of Polestar 2, we’ve gone back to the drawing board in order to improve the car’s environmental effect while also improving the ability to track its components. Not only are these enhancements in terms of utility and aesthetics, but they also address issues such as long-term sustainability and carbon impact.”
Additionally, the Polestar 2 is equipped with a cabin filter and particulate matter sensor through the Polestar in-car app, making it a much more interesting package. These cutting-edge system changes enable the vehicle to assess the quality of the outside air, therefore improving the inside in a literal sense. In addition, the EV’s range will be better in bad weather.
The pricing and distribution of the Polestar 2 in North America have not changed, but the business has said that additional information will be released in the weeks ahead.
