Volvo announces two Polestar performance models

Autos Apr 10, 2016 Ajax News Advertiser

Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, and Polestar, the performance brand owned by Volvo Cars, have announced the launch of the quickest cars they have ever made – the new 367 hp Polestar S60 sedan and V60 wagon.

Both cars make the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.7 seconds and are limited to a top speed of 155 mph, powered by a specially enhanced version of Volvo’s award-winning four-cylinder Drive-E powertrain.

Polestar has taken an original V60 and S60 and added a bigger turbo, a supercharger, new conrods, new camshafts, a larger air intake and a higher capacity fuel pump to augment the engine, and matched it with a BorgWarner four-wheel drive system and the new Polestar-optimized eight-speed Geartronic automatic gearbox.

On top of this new performance-optimized equipment, Polestar has radically reduced the car’s weight. The Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar are 53 lb lighter over the front axle and 44 lb lighter in total compared to the previous model years.

These two new models also mark the globalization of the Polestar brand.

The first road legal Polestar cars were launched in 2014 to limited markets.

Polestar has announced it is expanding the number of markets where a Polestar will be sold from 13 to 47 and doubling production volume from 750 cars a year up to 1,500.
