« Well, they can certainly drive and use these cars, but they’re not really for sale, as such. Polestar is planning a subscription model for the cars, which is sort of like leasing, but more so.
The subscription model works like this: there’s no down payment or anything, just a flat monthly payment. This payment includes all insurance and maintenance, with pick-up and delivery for maintenance visits and/or repairs for the car, along with a number of car-rental days and other services, like scheduling a time to get the car washed.
Via a phone app, the Polestar’s, um, I guess subscribers, can arrange for add-on services. The example Polestar gave is this:
“As an example, a customer needs the short-term use of a roof box for a forthcoming skiing holiday. At a time and location specified by the owner, Polestar will supply, fit and subsequently remove the roof box, just adding a small incremental usage charge to their monthly invoice.”
I wonder if they’ll come out with bungee cord when you want to lash a half-dozen sheets of plywood to the roof at Home Depot?
Polestar is using the phone-as-key approach we’ve already seen with Vovo’s other spin-off, Lynk & Co (though it appears a conventional key is part of the deal, too) and the system allows for keyless access to the car, including temporary use for valets and people you want to impress by letting them drive your (is it yours?) car. »
