Despite arriving in the UK only last year, the EV manufacturer has already proven a disruptor on the global automotive scene by releasing detailed reports that show its cars' full lifecycle emissions. Famously, it demonstrated just how far an electric Polestar 2 would have to travel before it was climate-neutral, as opposed to an ICE car.

Bolin is at the heart of this process, helping the company as it aims to deliver a carbon-neutral car by 2030 and become a carbon-neutral overall company by 2040.
