Looking to upgrade to a car of the future? Volvo’s Polestar 2 blends innovation and luxury for a unique automotive experience. And the best part? It’s vegan. The Polestar features modern, eco-friendly materials, which means it doesn’t use leather or wool.

On average, it takes the skin of three cows to cover the interior of a standard car. Cows are intelligent animals with complex relationships and a desire to live. In the leather industry, they aren’t given this opportunity. Sheep are gentle individuals who feel pain, fear, and loneliness, but they are treated like machines in the wool industry. Compassionate companies like Polestar know why it’s important to choose vegan materials—because it can make a difference in the lives of billions of animals.

The Polestar 2’s vegan upholstery is made from WeaveTech, which was inspired by the “sporty look and feel” of wetsuits. That means it’s durable, smooth, and ultra-modern. Choose from three color schemes—Slate, Charcoal, and Barley—based on muted, neutral tones. The car also features a leather-free steering wheel with a clean matte finish.

With its advanced electric car technology, the Polestar 2 is as good for the planet as it is fun to drive. In addition, leaving animal-derived materials out makes it even more environmentally friendly. Leather production produces toxic byproducts that can pollute groundwater, and raising sheep for the wool industry has led to land degradation in many areas around the world.

If you care about animals and the environment, choosing an eco-friendly and vegan car is essential. Help expand vegan options by urging car companies to stop using leather:
