The business intends to downsize its personnel by about 30% by the end of September, which will have a significant impact on its local auto production operations. Polestar is making this move in order to streamline its operations and adapt to changing market conditions.

Polestar, which is owned by the Chinese automaker Geely, has already halted manufacturing at its site in Chengdu, southwestern China. Additionally, the corporation intends to reduce office space at its regional headquarters in Shanghai. These actions are part of Polestar's efforts to optimise its resources and adapt to the changing automotive industry.

Polestar revealed earlier this year that it intends to decrease its global staff by approximately 15%, reflecting the company's struggles in the highly competitive electric vehicle sector. Polestar sold fewer than 1,000 cars in China, the world's largest auto market, in the first four months of the year.
