This is a special edition of our EEC podcast on the subject "The Future of Automotive Design". Our guests are: Anders Warming, Frank Wu and Albert-Johann Kirzinger.
Let's discover together how automotive design will transform as we look to the mobility of the future - connected, autonomous, shared and electric.
Anders Warming is the founder of Warming Design company. Anders was head of exterior design at BMW, at Mini and most recently at Borgward before founding his own company.
Frank Wu is director of design at Beijing Automotive Group. Previously, Frank was lead exterior designer at Cadillac in the US and due to his background as an Asian-American he has an excellent understanding of both worlds.
Albert-Johann Kirzinger has been head of design at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles (VCV) and MAN Latin America since 2012. He has worked on designs for Audi, Bentley, Bugatti and VW. At VCV, many vehicles bear his signature: Caddy 4 and 5, Bulli T6, Crafter, MOIA and many more.
Our outstanding guest this time: CEO of Polestar, Thomas Ingenlath! We always announce in the podcast „Whether at live events or in the digital world, we bring together cool promising tech startups with exciting innovative global players and generate a platform where the world of sustainable technology meets.“ In this episode it couldn't be more fitting - we have a little bit of both - back-up from established automotive companies, but also elements of start-up dynamics in the daily work at Polestar.
Dynamic, sustainable, efficient, purist, bold, noble - simply Polestar!
Thomas answered many technical and strategic questions - honestly, competently and thoughtfully!
