Polestar has revealed that its Precept all-electric four-door GT concept car will be coming to market and will feature a new name.

The upcoming Polestar 5, the company revealed, will be released in 2024 and looks set to have undergone remarkably little changes from the original concept vehicle.

In a series of videos, the company is showcasing how the design has moved from concept to reality, looking at the considerations faced by the designers and engineers.

“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. 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,” comments Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

The original Precept concept debuted in early 2020 but we won’t get full details about the car until a press event next month.

Polestar’s latest video on the car focuses on Nahum Escobedo, the company’s exterior design manager. 

According to Escobedo, the 5’s design was influenced heavily by aeroplanes and sharks – leading to the low, rakish front section. However, the 5 doesn’t seem to have retained the suicide doors from the original concept. 

Round the back, the Polestar 5 features a long “aeroblade” light that stretches across the entire rear section of the car.

The rear window also seems to end surprisingly high on the rear deck which could make reverse parking an issue. On the other hand, of course, it seems likely that there will be a rear-view camera.
