The Polestar Synergy is a supercar designed by competition winners
Three Polestar Design Contest winners collaborated on this supercar, and it’s now a full scale model
Polestar has unveiled a dramatic, single-seat electric supercar known as the ‘Synergy’. Sadly though, this isn’t quite as exciting as it may seem.
That’s because the Synergy is the result of the latest Polestar Design Contest, and although it exists as a 1:1 scale model, it’s not about to enter production any time soon. Boo.
Would be one heck of a rival to the BAC Mono though, wouldn’t it? The Synergy gets its name because it’s actually a mash-up of three different winning designs from the competition. We’re told that 10 designs were shortlisted this year having responded to a brief “to design a Polestar vehicle centred around the experience of performance, providing an advanced technical story that enables this in a sustainable way.”
Three winners were eventually picked – Devashish Deshmukh and Swapnil Desai for their exterior designs and Yingxiang Li for the interior – and a six-month collaboration then took place with Polestar’s designers to bring the three looks together.
Polestar describes the end product as an ‘electric fantasy supercar’ that stands at just over one metre tall and 4.56 metres long. There’s a closed canopy, LED lighting and an excellent ‘hollowed-out’ look that was apparently inspired by a hammerhead shark.
Oh, and having seen the Synergy, you may not be surprised to hear that Polestar has agreed a deal with Mattel’s Hot Wheels brand to turn its cars into Hot Wheels and Matchbox collectibles. Nice.
Now, why not go the other way too and make the Synergy into a proper production car, Polestar?
