The Polestar O2 is a sporty roadster which aims to be a “halo statement” for the electric luxury brand

Polestar took the wraps off its newest show car this week under the sunny skies of Los Angeles, previewing what a convertible sports car might look like for the budding premium brand. Based heavily on the Precept concept shown in 2020, the O2 is a 2+2 roadster built on that same platform and shares many design cues.

“A project like this is always something that guys and girls really dream about doing. So for us, a brand like Polestar, we need this as a halo statement,” Maximillian Missoni, head of Polestar design, told us in an exclusive interview. “We have the same bonded aluminum unibody used in the Precept which is a very light and stiff structure, really good for sports cars, and I would say to be competitive in this high-end premium electric sports car segment, that’s a nice entry ticket.”
