Volvo’s Pole volt

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

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.
