Swedish electric performance car brand Polestar will open a flagship UK ‘Space’ at the iconic Battersea Power Station on Friday 14th October 2022, when the Grade II listed building opens its doors to the public for the first time.
Featuring the same minimalist design that Polestar Spaces are now known for, Polestar Battersea Power Station will be situated on the ground floor near to the building’s southern entrance, which opens onto Malaysia Square and Electric Boulevard, a new pedestrianised high street for London. The Space will be one of over 100 shops, bars, restaurants and leisure venues that call Battersea Power Station home.
Visitors to the new Space will be able to interact with non-commissioned Polestar Specialists to learn more about the brand and how to order their own car if desired. Guests can also take a test drive of the Polestar 2 from the facility with a one-hour drive route from the site’s car park.
As its flagship, Polestar Battersea Power Station has enough room to display up to five vehicles and joins Manchester Trafford Centre and Solihull Touchwood Centre as the third full Space opening in the UK. The temporary Polestar Space in Westfield White City will move to Battersea Power Station.
“The opening of Polestar Battersea Power Station is a great moment for our Brand in the UK. It will allow potential customers to discover Polestar in a relaxing and informed environment, enabling them to define their own shopping experience and reinforces our determination to change the face of automotive retail,” said Jonathan Goodman, Head of Polestar UK.
“Battersea Power Station is such an iconic location in the UK and we can’t wait to invite visitors into our flagship Space from 14th October, whether for a test drive, to learn more about Polestar or to take part in one of the many events we’ll have taking place.”
To celebrate the opening, the Polestar Precept, which hints at the exterior design of Polestar 5, will be on display from 14-23rd October at the new Battersea Power Station Space.
The Precept showcases the future direction for the Polestar brand in terms of design, sustainability and technology and also hints at the exterior design of Polestar 5. Partly engineered in Coventry, Polestar 5 will receive a UK-developed innovative bonded aluminium chassis for superlative performance and sustainable qualities.
Polestar Battersea Power Station has enough room to display up to five vehicles.
Those wishing to order or reserve a Polestar can complete the process on the Polestar website, either in the comfort of their own home or, with the guidance of a Polestar Specialist in their chosen Space.
With the Polestar 2 currently available to buy, with a WLTP range of up to 335 miles, Polestar will launch four new electric cars in the next five years – starting with the Polestar 3, a premium electric performance SUV, to be unveiled in October 2022.
Battersea Power Station is one of central London’s largest, most visionary and eagerly anticipated new riverside neighbourhoods. The £9bn regeneration project is delivering a vibrant, mixed-use destination offering a community of homes, shops, restaurants, offices, culture and leisure venues, as well as 19 acres of public space, all serviced by an extension to the London Underground Northern Line.
The Grade II listed Power Station, the second phase of the development, opens to the public from Friday 14th October 2022, housing over 100 shops, restaurants and cafes, events venues, Lift 109 – a unique chimney lift experience offering 360-degree panoramic views of London’s skyline, new office space and 254 new residential apartments. Electric Boulevard, a new pedestrianised high street for London, will also open on the same day.
