The automotive industry is experiencing a groundbreaking shift towards sustainability and innovation. Polestar, a Swedish electric performance car brand, has been at the forefront of this transformation. At the 2023 IAA Mobility show in Munich, Polestar unveiled its most remarkable creation yet – the Polestar Synergy Supercar Concept EV. This electric fantasy supercar is not just a glimpse into the future; it’s a testament to the power of collaboration and sustainable design.
The Birth of Synergy: A Fusion of Talent
The Polestar Synergy is the result of an extraordinary collaboration between three talented designers, Devashish Deshmukh, Yingxiang Li, and Swapnil Desai. These visionary minds combined their winning designs from the Polestar Design Contest, beating over 600 other entries. The competition challenged designers to create a Polestar vehicle that embodies both performance and sustainability, two core values of the brand.
Design Inspired by Nature and Innovation
The Synergy concept stands at 3.5 feet tall and stretches out to nearly 15 feet, showcasing a futuristic and aerodynamic design inspired by the hammerhead shark. Massive fenders, sweeping curves, and aerodynamic cutouts give this electric supercar a striking presence. Polestar‘s signature LED running lights and sleek lines seamlessly integrate the Synergy into the brand’s design language.
A Peek Inside the Future
Step inside the Polestar Synergy, and you’ll find a minimalist, single-seat interior designed by Yingxiang Li. At its core is a transparent glass display mounted atop a sleek steering yoke, emphasizing control and performance. This interior concept offers a unique blend of floating comfort and control, redefining the driving experience.
Polestar’s Partnership with Mattel’s Hot Wheels
To celebrate the Synergy‘s debut, Polestar has partnered with Mattel’s Hot Wheels brand. This partnership not only marks Polestar‘s entry into the toy market but also signifies a commitment to bringing innovative automotive designs to a wider audience. The 1:1 scale model of the Synergy will be featured at the Hot Wheels Legends Tour in California, starting in October 2023.
The Future of Electric Supercars
While the Polestar Synergy is currently a concept, Polestar has a history of turning its concepts into reality. As the automotive industry continues to evolve, the Synergy concept serves as a testament to the limitless possibilities of sustainable, high-performance electric vehicles.
As Polestar’s CEO, Thomas Ingenlath, aptly puts it, “All of this proves that electric vehicles – in reality, or as toys – can be just as, if not more, exciting than their ICE equivalents.”
In a world where innovation and sustainability go hand in hand, the Polestar Synergy Supercar Concept EV is a shining example of what the future of electric supercars could look like.
