Volvo S60 to debut Polestar Engineered package

Polestar Engineered parts for Volvo 60-series models

Polestar Engineered is the new confluence of Volvo and Polestar.

The Polestar Engineered pack will only be offered on the range-topping T8 Twin Engine versions of the 60-series cars, positioned above the current R-Design trim. "This strategy is firmly grounded in our shared belief in an electric future for the vehicle industry", said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO at Volvo Cars. It can be found on the Brembo brake calipers, as well as the seat belts and shock absorbers. But these new Polestar Engineered models are just the first step in Volvo one day finally rivalling brands such as BMW M and AMG, as full-fat Polestar models will likely hit even harder on the electrified sports auto drum.

Volvo has confirmed that the top S60 model will use a reworked version of the T8 Twin Engine's hybrid powertain, which comprises a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor.

We'll have to wait until next week to see the all-new South Carolina-built Volvo S60 in its entirety.

Trump upbeat ahead of N.Korean summit:The Asahi Shimbun
On the way forward, Pompeo said, "I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with the North Koreans". For decades, North Korea has been a pariah state, and now its latest hereditary leader is being treated as a world statesman.

Volvo says the package applies Polestar's "performance engineering expertise" to the vehicle's wheels, brakes, suspension and engine control unit. The tweaks are also expected to improve refinement of the eight-speed automatic transmission and lower the fuel consumption.

A number of dynamic features accompany the Polestar Engineered S60's additional power, including adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers and a strut-tower brace cribbed from the 600-hp Polestar 1 gasoline-electric hybrid coupe as well as a pair of gold-painted six-piston Brembo calipers for the front brakes.

The shocks are borrowed from the Polestar 1 hybrid performance auto, meaning they are adjustable.

Additionally, new lightweight wheels reduce unsprung mass, while chrome exhaust tailpipes and gold-coloured seatbelts emphasise the car's Polestar links.
