PART II – RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)


   (a)    The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense
   (b)    The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-CEN or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
      (c)    The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.


State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Polestar Automotive Holding UK PLC (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2023 (“Form 20-F”) by the prescribed filing deadline (April 30, 2024). Additional time is needed for the Company to close its books and records, complete its financial statement preparation and finalize its review process for the year ended December 31, 2023. The additional time required to close the Company’s books and records includes the evaluation and quantification of certain errors in historical 2021 and 2022 annual and interim financial statements.

It is the Company’s preliminary view that the historical errors identified as of the date hereof are expected to: (i) positively impact net loss by less than five percent (5%) for 2021, and (ii) negatively impact net loss by less than five percent (5%) for 2022.

Additional time is also required by the Company to complete the additional work required for management’s assessment of internal control over financial reporting for the year ended December 31, 2023, as this is the first year that the Company is subject to this requirement. The Company is working to file the Form 20-F as soon as practicable.
