Electric vehicles are an exciting aspect of the present and the future, even more so when they include a strong sense of sustainability.

Volvo's sub-brand, Polestar, released its next concept car on Tuesday: the Precept. This electric vehicle company isn't solely focusing on pushing performance limits, instead, it's opting to focus on its sustainable impact and vision.

The Precept is a step in an even greener direction.


The Precept concept

It's sleek, it's shiny, it's brand new, and most importantly, it's green. Not literally, of course. Polestar's Precept is a four-door, electric sedan vehicle with a solid sporty look. The company has yet to disclose the vehicle's figures with regards to power, acceleration, range, or battery capacity.

But what it did share was some impressive sustainability-focused information about the EV.

The Polestar Precept *really* cares about the environment. Not only electric power, but plastic bottle seats and fishing net carpets, too →

Volvo has been working hard at keeping this car's environmental impact to an absolute minimum. For instance, the Precept has seat surfaces made up of 3D-knitted recycled PET bottles. Its bolsters and headrests are made out of recycled cork vinyl, and its carpets are from reclaimed fishing nets.

Offering a 50% saving in weight and reducing plastic waste by up to 80%, the car's interior panels and seatbacks are made of flax-based composite materials.

The Precept comes with a 15-inch vertically oriented touch screen and a 12.5-inch driver's display. Powered by Android, the car's infotainment comes with a dynamic digital interface including proximity sensors and eye-tracking.

The car also has dual radar sensors, a high-definition camera at the front, a lidar sensor atop the car's glass roof, camera-based side mirrors, and a digital screen linked to a wide-angle camera at the back of the car.

The Polestar Precept will be showcased at the Geneva International Motor Show, starting on March 5th.
