Five reasons Father Christmas would drive… a Polestar 2
Top bloke that Father Christmas. He might be getting on a bit, but come Christmas Eve it’ll be business as usual as he dusts off the sleigh delivering presents to kids around the world.
But considering his age, isn’t it about time he traded it in the sleigh for something a little more modern, refined, comfortable (and less drafty)? We had a think about what the ideal car for Father Christmas would be, and there could only really be one: the all-electric Polestar 2.
Here’s five reasons why…
1. It’s fast
Father Christmas doesn’t exactly scream speed demon, does he? With his jolly demeanour and white beard, he’s not your stereotypical boy racer. But think about it. With just 24 hours to deliver presents to the children of the world, he’s got to get a bit of a shift on, hasn’t he?
Not an issue for the Polestar. In its most potent guise, it can sprint from 0-62mph in less than five seconds, with its 400hp and 660Nm of torque ensuring Santa has more than enough pace to launch off short roof tops. Perfect. Well, it certainly provides more poke than eight reindeers, anyway.
2. It’s available in all-wheel drive
All that power is no good unless you can put it to good use, especially if you happen to live in snowy Lapland. Happily, the Polestar 2 is available in dual-motor form, giving it all-wheel-drive traction.
In other words, just what you need to tackle the treacherous roads when Father Christmas is on his home turf (or if you occasionally have to take off from a slippery rooftop).
3. It’s comfortable
After years aboard a glorified sledge, anything would be an upgrade for the round-the-world flight he undertakes every year. But the Polestar 2 allows him to travel in supreme comfort.
Aside from the sumptuous seats and classy minimalist look, there’s a large central touchscreen that’s really nice to use.
It’s actually an Android operating system, which means Santa will have no problem finding Google Maps if he gets lost and needs a bit of guidance. The voice command system means he doesn’t even have to stop to sort it out, either. Safety first Santa!
4. It’s from the North Pole (kind of)
Ok, so that’s not strictly true. But the word Polestar does literally mean “North Star” – so what better way to guide Santa back home after his arduous night shift (maybe Google Maps).
Polestar is also a subsidiary of Volvo and headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden – much closer to the North Pole than any other car maker.
In fact, we worked out that Santa’s nearest Polestar retailer is actually in Oslo, Norway – a mere 3,770 miles. That’s just like popping to the shops for Santa though.
5. It’s available in ‘Snow’ white
His sleigh might be red, but when picking his colour options we reckon Santa would opt for Snow white – an ice-cold crisp metallic option that really helps the Polestar pop. He’d certainly blend in around his homeland, that’s for sure.
