Volvo’s Pole volt
Volvo has applied the Polestar treatment to its 60 Series T8 petrol-electric hybrid models. The ‘Polestar Engineered’ package upgrades wheels, Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension and the engine control unit. The new-gen S60 is set to be the first recipient, with V60 and XC60 versions getting the go-faster treatments next year. Grunt takes a hike from 298kw/640nm to 309kw/670nm. Those figures are for US versions as Australia still awaits final confirmation, but given our predilection for hi-po halo models, it would seem a shoo-in.
