Volvo S60 first with Polestar Engineered performance upgrade

2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered Announced With More Power Polestar Engineered upgrade to be offered on top-spec Volvo '60 series' T8 models

Polestar Engineered parts will be available for the imminent new S60 first, and then the V60 and XC60 next year.

"The new S60 T8 Polestar Engineered is an electrified auto that does what you want it to", said Henrik Green, senior vice president of research and development at Volvo Cars.

From Polestar 2 on, the Volvo subbrand will build and market pure battery-electric vehicles only. This translates to 415 hp and 494 pounds-feet of torque in the Polestar variant, versus approximately 390 hp and 472 pounds-feet in the regular S60 T8. Volvo also says that the software changes will improve fuel consumption and lower emissions.

Volvo is going electric, but that doesn't mean the Swedish automaker is slowing down when it comes to making its lineup speedier. The Brembo six-piston callipers are one-piece cast for better rigidity and they clamp down on pads with increased heat tolerance to reduce fade.

Suspension tweaks include the addition of Öhlins shock absorbers with dual-flow valves, as well as the adoption of strut bar and adjustable shock absorber designs from the Polestar 1 plug-in hybrid performance auto.

The Polestar Engineered pack will only be offered on the range-topping T8 Twin Engine versions of the 60-series cars, positioned above the current R-Design trim.

Volvo is making the announcement a week before unveiling the new S60 as well as inaugurating the automaker's first United States plant.

Volvo has released details of its upcoming S60 Polestar Engineered range topper ahead of its debut next week.

Premium Öhlins shock absorbers are added to the Polestar Engineered multi-link front and rear suspension, with a dual-flow valve for stiffening in the springs and dampers, without losing any comfort for the rider. Polestar emblems, black-chrome tailpipes and gold-coloured seat belts also serve to identify these flagship models. "All components have been fine-tuned to work together, delivering a responsive and exciting drivers' vehicle".
