In Luqiao, China the production of Polestar 2 has officially begun. The deliveries are planned to star first in Europe and later in China and North America. The Luqiao plant is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding and is operated by Volvo Cars, and now it is clearly shown the relation of Polestar with its parent companies.
According to the words of Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath, the production of the latest model of the company is starting in very hard times for the whole world, but the company is dedicated to continuing to follow its aims, focusing more than ever before on the health and safety of all of its employees and suppliers. The begging of production of Polestar 2 under these challenging circumstances is once again a chance for China to show to the world that the country is ready to go over the upheaval and continue its normal life. Hopes of Polestar are to market their second model as soon as possible providing to the customers extremely high quality from the begging of production to the final product.
