The new generation Polestar Performance Optimisation has been made available for Volvo’s award winning Drive-E T6 models with four-wheel drive.
The optimisation was previously only available for the all-new Volvo XC90 T6 AWD, but is from today available for the S60, V60 and XC60 T6 AWD models.
”The already powerful and agile T6 AWD models become even more dynamic and responsive to drive with the Polestar Optimisation. We have spent countless hours on creating a balanced package for performance oriented Volvo drivers, using the same philosophy and methods as for our race and performance cars,” said Thed Björk, racing and development driver for Polestar Cyan Racing.
The key to the improved performance and responsiveness of the Polestar Optimisation originates from including the entire powertrain in the optimisation, instead of only the engine as in the past.
Five important areas are optimised in the form of increased mid-range engine performance, faster gearshifts, optimised throttle response, optimised gearshift timing and an off-throttle functionality.
All changes of the Polestar optimisations are made with certified emissions, fuel consumption, service intervals and Volvo warranties unchanged.
