Polestar is the Swedish electric performance car brand determined to improve society by using design and technology to accelerate the shift to sustainable mobility. Headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, its cars are available online in 27 markets globally across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The company plans to create a truly climate-neutral production car, without offsetting, by 2030.
Polestar 2 launched in 2019 as the electric performance fastback with avant-garde Scandinavian design and up to 350 kW. Polestar 3 launched in late 2022 as the SUV for the electric age – a large high-performance SUV that delivers sports car dynamics with a low stance and spacious interior. Polestar plans to release three more electric performance vehicles through to 2026.
In the Belgian B2B market Polestar lacked a quick and easy real-time quote-generating tool. This would allow their SME customers to generate a tailor-made quote for the financial product of their choice in collaboration with Polestar’s local banking partner.
Pàu built this tool to seamlessly integrate with the Polestar back office and to retrieve the financial product details in real-time through an API implementation.
Not only did the tool match the Polestar brand guidelines, it also allowed Polestar as well as the local bank to both track and report on the usage of the tool and the success rate of any linked campaigns.
In this complicated environment linking multiple business needs together while dealing with personal data, security and GDPR compliance were of course key requirements from the get-go.
Pàu was able to build and release this bespoke tool in a very short time to market with a focus on UX, reliability, and quality.
This was the start of a trusting partnership to deliver more digital integrations for Polestar in Belgium as well as Switzerland. To be continued…
