The latest episode sees edie’s content editor Matt Mace speaking with Fredrika Klarén, Head of Sustainability at Polestar
Speaking before the UK Government’s announcement that a ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles had been moved forward to 2030, Klaren offers thoughts on why 2020 had shaped up to be a big year for EVs – even with fewer cars on road.
Klaren also explains why Polestar was looking across the entire value chain of its products, having recently revealed the lifetime carbon footprint of all its new models, starting with the Polestar 2, and the full methodology behind it.
