With more than 20 years on the track, Polestar is at the leading edge of performance. Our team uses everything we learnt on the racing circuit to engineer products that enhance your driving experience.
Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.
The automatic gearbox changes gears more quickly to both improve acceleration and to better respond to the driver's commands, e.g. downshifts before overtaking.
The gears have also been calibrated to exploit the engine's improved midrange performance. The gearbox also avoids changes when cornering at high g-forces (where possible) for better stability.
We have concentrated the power where it is needed most - in the midrange; perfect for overtaking or when on a busy motorway. Combined with faster throttle response and gear changes this makes the car significantly more dynamic to drive.
Polestar Engineered engine optimisation carries on the tradition of adding a flavour of Polestar to your Volvo car with the help of powertrain software enhancements. Designed to increase power, acceleration, transmission performance (automatic only) and all-wheel drive torque, Polestar Optimisation can be added to new and existing Volvo models.
