2021 Polestar 2: Ep2 – Sandy Looks Under The Hood
In the second episode on the 2021 Polestar 2, Sandy has a look under the “bonnet” of the car to have a look at the fuse box. In the Polestar you find a conventional fuse box build with replaceable fuses. Sandy compares this to the Tesla vehicles that instead has fuses that can be turned back OTA (over-the-air program).
Sandy goes on to discuss the pluses and minuses of having a double latch for the hood and how that can affect space for the cooling module. Upon further exploration, Sandy finds one of his favorite fasteners, especially because it came out of one of Sandy’s Lean Design workshops year ago. Beyond that though, this fastener is strong, versatile, and can be removed and put back on indefinitely.
Sandy goes on to explain why the hood is shaped the way that it is for collisions and finds another one of his favorite fasteners the self-piercing rivet.
Sandy points out other things that he likes under the hood, but for that you will have to watch the video below:
