How is a concept, solar and self-driving car that really showcases style and technology
Little by little the forms and concepts begin to gather at some common points. Just as sedans are disappearing from assembly lines and SUVs have grown in reverse proportions, Some dot-like lines appear as certain profiles, If the brand logos are removed, they will be confused with each other. They also appear more and more, the models that designers define CUV, and what does Coupe Utility vehicle mean, It has a lowered roof that distinguishes it from SUVs.
futuristic concept of Volvo 360Cone of Audi is called the GrandSphereanother more recent, Cadillac Celesteand new light year 0, Sharing a similar view, she Sedans over five meters in length with two or one volumes, with large wheels and a completely unusual interiorwhich looks more like a studio apartment or a modern office than a car cabin.
It is no coincidence that they are brand concepts that have their own characterwhich was distinguished in the case of well-known car companies, and that The Dutch are repeating in their modelthe first production of a solar-powered electric car, which has already been sold in Europe to a Very high cost like €250,000 per light year.
Well, another elite brand is the creator of a new concept car that was recently revealed, although it is a brand derived from one of the previous ones. This is Polestar, which has gone from being a sports car division of Volvo into a sub-brand dedicated to technological and pioneering cars. And while there are still models of Volvo with the Polestar logojust as it is Mercedes sports car with AMG badgePolestar is on its way to detach itself or differentiate itself from the parent company, just as it did Citroen DS.
The prototype is called Polestar CladrusWhich is beyond ultra-modern and elegant Graphene-based chassissupplied with transparent solar panels embedded in the roof, Which supplies power to the battery and appliances. But if this quality is not enough, so is the car Designed from scratch to be completely independentBecause he will be able to work with him level 5thanks center Waymo . Sensors at the front of the roof.
The legendary Greek bird Caladrios, known for its healing and regenerative abilities, is the inspiration for the car’s name. With Cladrus, Polestar wants to show The global mission of its products, defending sustainability through recycling of auto parts.

Cladros has It seats 4 people comfortably and can accommodate up to 5 passengers Indoors, where there is an armchair or sofa and two chairs with armrests opposite it.
But this future model Pole Star It doesn’t just work with the sun’s energy alone. like him Light yearthat the electricity captured by the photovoltaic cells has a complement, which in this case is not a lithium-ion battery as in the car in Holland, but batteries based on graphenewhere it can be used as a super capacitor and power the panels Directly to the electric motor without going through the battery store that energy. Electricity that is not immediately consumed is only stored in the battery, giving it autonomy when the sun is not shining on the car.
