The new generation Polestar
Performance Optimisation has just been released for the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin
Engine, making the world’s most powerful and cleanest SUV even faster and more inspiring
The Polestar optimisation
increases the performance to 421 hp and 680 Nm and 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds,
all this with unchanged, class-leading consumption of 2.1 l/100 km and 43 km of
pure electric range.
The new generation Polestar optimisation does
not only optimise the engine performance, but rather the entire drivetrain in
five key areas. By improving throttle response, gearshift hold, speed and
precision, as well as overall engine performance, the XC90 T8 reaches a new
level of driving pleasure.
One of the main features of the new
optimisation is the gear hold function that holds the selected gear during
cornering at high lateral g-forces. This prevents unwanted gearshifts
mid-corner that can unsettle the balance of the car, providing the driver with
improved response and control during active driving.
Scandinavian Touring Car Championship (STCC) champion and Polestar Cyan Racing
driver Thed Björk has been part of the optimisation development.
