Polestar takes sustainability seriously with innovative solutions for car interiors

Innovative materials such as Bcomp’s natural fiber composite solutions reduce plastic content, cut weight and could improve crash behavior for interior panels.

Flax is the natural fiber that is used in Polestar interior and exterior (outer still) to build light and sustainable panels.

Results: up to 50% reduction in overall weight and an 80% reduction in plastic content compared to traditional interior panels.
