Volvo and Polestar team up for more electrifying performance

I think “Polestar Optimized” is what the option was once called. I recall a long road trip in a brand XC70 T6 Polestar and being amazed at the boosted straight-6’s power. As you might know, Polestar’s now making its own high-performance electric cars. I appears as though they’ve returned to their first love of boosting performance in Volvos.

This time around, they’re sticking to all things electric. Volvo will now offer a new upgraded electrified performance option Polestar Engineered, specifically developed for the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid cars.

To be introduced in the upcoming all-new S60 sedan, the Polestar Engineered upgrade will find its way T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid vehicles such as the V60 and XC60. The cars will be available globally in limited numbers and feature new lightweight wheels, gold-painted Brembo mono-block brake callipers, black chrome exhaust pipes, premium Öhlins shock absorbers and golden seat belts. Oh, and the power boost? 415 horsepower with 494 lb.-ft. of torque compared to the standard 400 horsepower and 472 torques.
