Kay Saunders joins Global Fleet at Polestar
Kay Saunders (pictured) is the new Global Fleet Operations Manager at Polestar. Earlier this month she made the switch from Volvo, where for the last three years she was Global Fleet Development Manager for the Volvo Car Group - the culmination of an 18-year-long career with the Swedish manufacturer.
Polestar, also headquartered in Göteborg, is the ‘electric daughter’ of Volvo Car Group and its Chinese parent company Geely. In 2017, the company started production of Polestar 1, a high-end all-electric coupé that aimed to compete with Tesla. Last year saw the launch of its successor, the mid-sized Polestar 2. Polestar 3, to be launched at a later date, will be an SUV-style BEV. Polestar also functions as an innovation lab for the Volvo Car Group, developing designs and technologies of a more experimental nature.
