Polestar, the Swedish automaker, is reportedly considering further development of its Synergy concept, initially unveiled as a “fantasy supercar” in September during the company's annual design contest. Despite being initially positioned as a show car with no production plans, Maximillian Missoni, Polestar's Head of Design, recently expressed interest in taking the concept to the next level.
Missoni acknowledged that the Synergy concept had generated considerable excitement, stating, “I'm not saying we'd do this, but we'd like to do this.” He emphasized the potential excitement such a model could bring to the brand, highlighting the capability of Polestar's engineering team to bring such a vision to life.
The Polestar design chief hinted at the competence of the brand's U.K. engineering team, responsible for the aluminum architecture underpinning the upcoming Polestar 5 and 6 models. While acknowledging that the Synergy concept would necessitate a distinct monocoque, he expressed confidence in Polestar's ability to create a low-volume supercar, stating it was “exciting and inspiring to see where the brand would go.”
The Synergy concept, a collaborative effort by three design teams selected from the 2022 Polestar Design Contest, stands at 42.1 inches tall and 179.5 inches long. Envisioned as an all-electric supercar, Missoni's remarks suggest that Polestar, known for its Polestar 1 model, is not averse to creating thrilling driver-centric vehicles.
Despite the current lack of plans for production, Polestar has recognized the potential of the Synergy concept, especially its visual appeal, and is contemplating avenues to translate it into a tangible project. Notably, the Synergy is set to be commemorated as a Hot Wheels toy, marking the beginning of a partnership between Polestar and Mattel.
