Article Highlights

This year's Polestar Design Competition winners have been announced and the concepts are beautiful. The winning concepts from each category are vastly different from each other, one is an autonomous car, one an airship, and the last a boat. Check out all the winners below.  


The competition this year was fierce and a lot of really great work was submitted, if you’re interested in seeing all of the honorable mentions visit the official page here.

Student Winning Project:

Polestar 40 by Siddesh Bhogale

An airship from the future. Who would’ve thought airships could be this cool. 


The goal with this project was to create a vehicle that could explore the arctic, and other remote locations. This airship would be ideal for research projects that require hovering at varying altitudes for extended periods of time, where a helicopter, plane, or drone may not be able to.   


Siddesh included the concept of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VOTL) which uses electric propulsion. “The design also reflects Polestar in its form, use of colours, and graphics, as well in its focus on electric power.”

Professional Winning Project: 


Polestar MMXL by Konrad Cholewka

A spacious “autonomous pod” that allows for a lot of flexibility with interior design. It’s designed to be an inclusive vehicle with a large opening at the back and a living room-like feel in the interior. This concept seems very realistic and something that we’ll actually start to see in the future. 


The design is very geometric and is really just two intersecting shapes, a cylinder with a rectangle.


Honorable Mention

Spänning by Arthur Martins


An electric boat that looks like a knife cutting through the water. In the post-apocalyptic climate change future we’re all going to driving boats, and this would be an awesome one to drive. This looks like something from a Bond movie in a very good way.




Congratulations to all the winners!
