Polestar Opens Eighth Space In Sheffield’s Meadowhall

Polestar, the Swedish electric performance car brand, has opened its eighth UK Space in the Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield on Friday 14 June, replacing its temporary pop-up location at the popular retail destination. The Space will be part of Meadowhall Shopping Centre’s large array of 310 shops, restaurants, and leisure spots. The opening coincides with the arrival of the Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 later this year.

The Space, located on the first floor of the shopping centre, features a sleek, minimalistic design complemented by seamless digital interactions and knowledgeable product specialists. Customers will have the freedom to tailor their entire journey, from initial enquiry through to the delivery of their preferred Polestar model. On-site test drives will be available, with options for deliveries to home or office addresses.

Meadowhall Shopping Centre has also contributed to the promotion of electric vehicles by installing 30 charging points throughout the centre. Furthermore, it hosts the largest solar panel installation of any UK shopping centre, comprising 3,418 panels covering 60,000 square feet. This installation generates 770,000 kWh of solar energy annually, equivalent to the electricity consumption of 230 average UK households. Sheffield City Council also created a Clean Air Zone last year in a bid to increase air quality in the city.

Head of Polestar UK, Jonathan Goodman said:
“We are thrilled to be opening our eighth Space in the United Kingdom during what promises to be an exciting year for the brand. The timing is perfect with the upcoming arrival of the Polestar 3, our luxury SUV, and the Polestar 4, our SUV coupe. As a shopping centre committed to a sustainable future, Meadowhall was an obvious choice for our next Polestar Space.”

Darren Pearce, centre director for Meadowhall, commented:
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming Polestar to Meadowhall. It’s set to be a really exciting addition to the centre, with its sustainable ethos reflecting our own commitment to making a positive impact on the planet.
We’re constantly looking to bring new, premium brands to the centre, enhancing the experience for our customers, and Polestar is one of a number of exciting arrivals on The Avenue this year. As the only Polestar Space within Yorkshire, we’ve no doubt it is set to be a hit.”
