“Goodwood is our favorite place to show off our cars in an enthusiastic environment,” Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a press release. “This year we are delighted to present the Polestar 5 that climbs the hill! Our UK R&D team are doing an incredible job developing the car, and we are proud to be able to highlight their hard work at this early stage.”
