The 2021 Fleet Forward Conference, convening in person at the Hayes Mansion in San Jose Nov. 10-12, announces that Polestar will have the all-electric Polestar 2 sedan for attendees to drive and experience.

The sedan is part of the conference’s Innovation in Motion — a new, interactive experience featuring EV ride and drives, technology displays, and autonomous vehicle demonstrations. Innovation in Motion will take place on Nov. 11 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.   

Conference attendees will not only be able to drive the Polestar 2, but also confer with a Polestar expert on features and capabilities. “We’re excited to get fleet managers behind the wheel of the Polestar 2, and the Fleet Forward Conference will be a great opportunity to do that firsthand,” said Dennis Craig, head of fleet at Polestar NA.
