Instead of just increasing the amount of power under the hood, the Polestar package improves throttle and off-throttle response and gearshift speed and precision to make the S90 and V90 more dynamic and fun to drive. The first S90/V90 variant available for optimization is the D5 diesel, while a performance package for the T6 gas version will be available by October 2016.

“It is exciting to take the technology we use in our race cars and apply that to Volvo’s road cars. We have created a balanced package that provides performance in all conditions, whether you are winning a race or driving actively on your favorite roads,” said Thed Björk, who drives a Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 with Drive-E technology in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.
