Polestar opens the Chengdu Production Center
From a series of sketches to the steel-and-concrete complex which now rises from the Chengdu Plain, the Polestar Production Centre is officially complete.
And just as the completion of the Production Centre marks its transformation from theory to reality, so it marks Polestar’s metamorphosis from an idea, that of pure, progressive performance, to a vehicle manufacturer.
Hand in hand with the inauguration comes Polestar’s World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI). This designation classifies Polestar as an official standalone car company.
Designed by celebrated Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta (who are about to add to their portfolio the new Shanghai Opera House), the Production Centre embodies the next step in automotive manufacturing.
The facility boasts a sweeping curved facade, a universal mezzanine offering unrestricted views of the entire manufacturing process, and a brand experience centre which introduces visitors to the Polestar universe.
