Polestar Volantis

Polestar recently held a design competition to imagine a car in the year 2040. Rather than just imagine a scifi looking vehicle I decided to put some thought into it.

This vehicle is fully autonomous and able to carry six adult passengers in full comfort as well as a very generous luggage compartment able to hold two full size flight cases per passenger.

The vehicle operates with an on-demand ride share basis via a subscription service. Due to its battery and fuel cell powertrain combination its able to travel almost 2000KM without recharging. This is made possible by the low-pressure European hyperloop system and smart road network that allows average travel speeds of 300kph.

When not in high speed transit the rideshare moves at a comfortable 0-100kph.
