Polestar will build the first zero-carbon car by 2030

The Polestar 0 project aims to build a "truly climate-neutral" car

A car with no CO2 involvement in its building is something that has been a fantasy for carmakers. Now with 2030 approaching, carmakers look to reduce CO2 emissions and Polestar claims that they will build the first zero-carbon car by 2030.

Polestar said in their first annual review and sustainability report that they will look to build a "truly climate-neutral" car by removing all the CO2 involved in production of the car.

“Offsetting is a cop-out,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO. “By pushing ourselves to create a completely climate-neutral car, we are forced to reach beyond what is possible today. We will have to question everything, innovate and look to exponential technologies as we design towards zero.”

We’re electric, so we don’t have to worry about combustion engines producing toxic emissions – but that doesn’t mean our job is done

“We will now work to eradicate all emissions stemming from production. Now is a historic and exciting time for car makers, an opportunity to seize the moment, do better and dare to build the dream of climate-neutral, circular and beautiful cars”, Fredrika further added.

Polestar has not yet elaborated on how they will build the '0' with zero carbon emissions but they have started laying the building blocks for the ambitious project.
