Polestar’s new 314kW SUV
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.
