Polestar’s new 314kW SUV

Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

THE SWEDES has waded into su­per-SUV wa­ters with the re­lease of a Polestar­tuned XC90 T8. A newly re­leased Polestar tune has taken the base car’s twin-charged 2.0-litre to 249kW/440Nm, in­flat­ing its hy­brid driv­e­train’s power out­puts to 314kW/680Nm. While brisk, its 5.5sec sprint to 100km/h is eas­ily crushed by some­thing like a BMW X5M. You’ll first need a XC90 T8 for $122,950 be­fore get­ting the tune, which will add around $1850 to the price de­pend­ing on the labour costs of plug­ging it in.
