New Polestar performance package now available for the Volvo S90 and V90

Polestar has launched the new generation of its performance package for the new #volvo #s90 and #v90. Known as #polestar Performance Optimisation, the package upgrades the entire drivetrain and further improves driving dynamics.

The #s90 and #v90 are the latest models launched on SPA, #volvo Cars’ new modular vehicle architecture that will underpin all new cars in Volvo’s 90 and 60 series. After bringing its new performance package to the XC90 already last year, #polestar now launches the same upgrades for the other two models in Volvo’s top-of-the-line 90 range.

Rather than simply increasing engine performance, #polestar Performance Optimisation upgrades the entire drivetrain. By improving throttle and off-throttle response, gearshift speed and precision, as well as overall engine performance, the #s90 and #v90 become even more dynamic and fun to drive.

 ”We continue to enhance the performance of Volvo’s new, class-leading SPA vehicle architecture and Drive-E powertrains. The #s90 and #v90 already offer excellent driving dynamics and we are delighted to raise the performance level even further with #polestar Performance Optimisation,” said Niels Möller, COO of #polestar, the #volvo Cars performance brand.

 The performance package has been developed in close cooperation with the engineers and racing drivers of #polestar Cyan Racing.

 ”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 favourite roads,” said Thed Björk, who drives a #volvo S60 #polestar TC1 with Drive-E technology in the FIA World Touring Car Championship. 

All changes as part of the #polestar performance package are made with certified emissions, fuel consumption, service intervals and #volvo warranties unchanged. Learn more about the new generation #polestar optimisation here.
