Polestar, owned by China’s Geely and Volvo’s sibling, said: “While many still doubt the world is ready to move to EV, a voice of confidence from such rental fleets means we are beyond this tipping point.”

Polestar cars, created in 2017, are manufactured at two plants in China, and are planned to be built in the US. By the end of 2025, it is planned to sell 290,000 cars a year.
