Polestar Performance


This is Polestar

Polestar is about driving. That is why we focus on optimizing drivability to create an experience that driving enthusiasts will appreciate.

A Polestar vehicle - be it a racing car or road car - is always designed to deliver optimal grip and control. The racing circuit and open road might appear to be at opposite ends of the spectrum, but both are equally demanding. In all cases, optimal drivability is what makes the driver confident beyond the wheel.

All Polestar products are developed for people like us - for those who believe driving matters.

WHAT MAKES A POLESTAR


The S60 and V60 Polestar cars are based on the highest specification Volvo models, then numerous upgrades are made to transform them into Polestar Volvos. Here are a number of areas where improvements have been made:

PERFORMANCE

Chassis
An extensively enhanced chassis provides the driver with increased control, feedback and driving pleasure. The changes include Öhlins shock absorbers and stiffer springs, reducing body movement and lowering the car.  

  • Polestar & Öhlins shock absorbers
  • 80% increased spring rate vs R-Design
  • Carbon Fiber enforced front strut bar
  • Stabilisers 15% stiffer vs R-Design
  • Uprated connecting points, mounts and bushings
  • Polestar unique Electrical Power Assisted Steering (EPAS)

WHEELS AND BRAKES

Wheels

20" Polestar wheels are fitted with high-performance summer tires, resulting in significantly more grip and precise steering response.

Brakes

The brake system uses six-piston Brembo front calipers and 371 mm discs, delivering high-performance stopping power.





  • Polestar/Brembo 6-piston caliper
  • 371×32 mm ventilated disc
  • New brake booster

The Polestar Performance Optimization increases the performance of your Volvo, offering you an enhanced driving experience

The technology has been developed by Polestar in close co-operation with the power train engineers of Volvo Cars. The optimization is exclusively installed by authorized Volvo dealer and it is a quick installation that can easily be done while your car is in for a service or tire change.

Throttle Response

The throttle response has been optimized for improved feedback and response, for example when overtaking or during active driving on a twisty road. The calibration means that the engine responds faster to the commands of the driver and thereby providing a more precise driving experience.

Gearshift Speed*

The gearshift speed has been increased for the car to accelerate faster and react more direct to the commands of the driver, for example when shifting down fast ahead of an overtaking maneuver. A faster gearbox provides the driver with more direct control of the car.

Gearshift Precision and Gear Hold*

The gearshifts have been calibrated to provide a more direct and precise driving experience as well as faster acceleration. Gearshift points have been calibrated to efficiently utilize the optimized mid-range performance of the engine. The gear hold function holds the gear during cornering at high lateral g-forces, preventing unwanted gearshifts mid-corner that can unsettle the balance of the car.

Off-throttle Response*

The gearbox and engine has been calibrated to provide a faster response when the driver quickly lifts off the throttle for a brief moment, for example during a short period of braking ahead of a corner. These functions keep the car in balance during fast cornering and provide the drive with improved predictability and control of the car.
