The Volvo S90 and V90 are now available for the new generation Polestar Performance Optimization, adding more driving pleasure to the high base level of the new platform. The new generation Polestar optimization moves away from only including increased engine performance to now include the entire drivetrain.
“We continue our work to enhance the performance of the new and class-leading platform of Volvo Cars. The S90 and V90 are cars that take the next step forward for premium performance and we are delighted to take that even further with the Polestar Performance Optimization,” said Niels Möller, COO of Polestar, the Volvo Cars Performance Brand.
The philosophy behind the new optimization comes from the engineers and racing drivers of Polestar Cyan Racing. By optimizing throttle response, gearshift speed, off-throttle response, gearshift precision, alongside engine performance, a new level of active drivability is achieved.
“I am genuinely excited to work with the same technology for our race cars and the performance optimization for road cars. We are able to work with the same philosophy to create a completely balanced package with usable performance in all conditions, no matter if it is about winning a race or driving actively on your favourite roads,” said Thed Björk, who drives a Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 with Drive-E technology in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.
The first S90 and V90 model available for optimization is the D5, with the T6 to become available in October.
