The Polestar Precept concept car will come to live as the Polestar 5. Polestar

What began life as the Polestar Precept concept car will continue to market as the Polestar 5, the automaker announced today in a new documentary on YouTube. The Polestar 5 will be launched in 2024.

The Precept: from Concept to Car documentary series shows the transformation of the concept into the Polestar 5 electric performance four-door grand touring car.

The latest installment of the series focuses on the car's exterior design process revealing key details that distinguish it from the concept car shown in early 2020.

"With the Precept documentary series, we are intentionally doing something car companies usually don't – going behind the scenes with transparency as we turn this stunning concept car into production reality," said said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. "It makes me very proud to see how much of the concept car's design is making it into the Polestar 5 – a great achievement by our designers and engineers alike."

Initially developed to preview the future of Polestar as a sustainability-focused company, the Polestar 5 brings muscular design language to market that is increasingly independent of the company's Volvo-linked routes under the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group/Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd umbrella.

Many of these design cues will be seen when the Polestar 3 SUV comes to market in 2022. That model will be produced alongside Volvo models at the company's Ridgeville, S.C. manufacturing facility.

In December the Polestar 5 sets out on a nationwide tour visiting Polestar Spaces across the U.S.
