Polestar opened its new outlet this week in Marin County, California. The new location joins the company’s location in San Jose, Calif., But it’s not quite a store or dealership in the traditional sense.
Polestar calls each of these locations a âPolestar Space,â and they function much like a Tesla store. Customers come in, learn about the vehicle (s) of interest to them, and work with consultants to order a vehicle that suits their needs and preferences at a fixed price. A key difference between a Polestar space and a Tesla store, however, is that when you’re done specifying your Polestar, you can purchase it on the spot. Another, more crucial difference: these spaces belong to concessionaires.
The approach has proven to be popular. âWe have seen a great response from customers since Polestar Marin opened in a temporary location earlier this year, and we look forward to welcoming them to the new permanent space in our hometown,â said Nick Price. , Vice President of Operations at Price. Simms family dealers operating in Marin County. âPolestar has been a great addition to the Price Simms family. “
The facility will serve everyone within a 150 mile radius of the Marin County location, and Polestar customers outside of that range can still request mobile service and software updates by appointment.
