Polestar is still ‘ young’ within Volvo but, a s with AMG at Mercedes, it is now an integral par t of the development process.
It will be the c ars spun of f the new SPA platform, initially the S90 and V90, that will really show what Polestar c an do. Expect S60/ V60 derivatives, too, af ter they’re replaced nex t year.
Given the per formance requirements for such a big c ar and Fries’ enthusia sm for electric power, ever y thing points to a tuned T8 power train, mating the supercharged / turbocharged Drive- E with a plug- in hybrid drivetrain. This combination already produces 395bhp in the T8 XC90, so a combined output of 500bhp is entirely possible. That should make for a ver y dif ferent kind of BMW M5 rival.
