The Polestar electric brand owned by Volvo Cars has developed an upgraded electrified performance offer called Polestar Engineered with a top T8 Twin Engine hybrid powertrain for cars of 60 series.
This was announced at the opening of the Volvo plant in Charleston (South Carolina), which for the first time in the United States will produce a new S60 premium sports sedan. This model will be the first to get a new package with the advanced T8 Twin Engine system, which is positioned above Volvo’s R-Design versions. The Volvo S60 will be officially presented tomorrow, June 20.
Since 2019 the Polestar electrified performance offer will be available for the new Volvo V60 wagon and the XC60 SUV for Care by Volvo subscribers at the company’s dealerships around the world.
The package includes new open design alloy wheels with brake callipers of golden color (the hallmark color for Polestar Engineered components), Polestar emblems, black chrome tailpipes and golden seat belts. Brake pads have increased heat resistance, and brake discs with notches contribute to reducing heating during braking.
Polestar Engineered also includes multi-link front and rear suspension with Öhlins premium shock absorbers with a dual-flow valve and adjustable struts, the Brembo mono-block brake callipers optimized for rigidity.
Fine-tuned engine’s control unit increases the power of T8 Twin Engine for the S60 up to 415 hp and 670 Nm (400 hp and 640 Nm are standard for this model). The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are improved, as well as the automatic transmission quality.
