Polestar has significantly expanded its research and development capacity with the establishment of a new R&D centre in Coventry in the United Kingdom which will allow the company to increase its own R&D capabilities and its ability to engineer future electric performance vehicles.

Polestar’s UK engineering operation will initially employ around 60 engineers, bringing a wealth of specialised skills to the company that will specifically support the development of future Polestar cars, beyond Polestar 3. These engineers have already been involved in preliminary development work for the company, and will now be fully immersed into future car projects as part of the global Polestar engineering network.
“Investing in the automotive engineering talent that the UK has to offer will strengthen our capabilities” said Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Executive Officer at Polestar. “The passion and dedication of these great engineers fit the Polestar spirit perfectly and will allow us to create some really awesome cars!”
Hans Pehrson, responsible for Research and Development at Polestar, added that Polestar’s role as a technology spearhead requires new and developing skills in low-volume, light-weight, multi-material performance car engineering, and the new UK operation will allow us to take the next steps towards our future cars.
