Based on the photos released by the Ministry of the Industry and Information Technology in charge of the sales permits, the elements from the car maker’s Precept concept can be seen in the design of the Polestar 4, such as split lights and minimalist design. The Precept is the concept vehicle that was supposed to debut in 2020 at the Geneva Motor Show, but due to the global health crisis, the debut was canceled. The Precept should start production next year as the Polestar 5.
