Polestar 2 Electric Car Adds Safety Features
April 28, 2020—Volvo Cars' electric vehicle brand, Polestar added safety features to the Polestar 2, reported CNET.
The car is designed with the battery pack within the car's structure to provide a stiffer structure and minimize damage during a crash. The automaker designed an aluminum case for the battery and designed it to automatically disconnect from the vehicle.
One occupant safety feature the company is added is Severe Partial Offset Crash or SPOC, which refers to an aluminum block housed in the front firewall on either side of the car. It minimizes anything inside the car from finding its way into the cabin, according to the report.
