Fancy a 313kW Volvo XC60?

Polestar tweaks all-new XC60

It looks terrific and it could be the new model that really propels Volvo up the sales charts – now comes news there will be a 313kW (421hp) version of the all-new XC60 available.

Tweaked by Volvo Cars performance division, Polestar, the Volvo XC60 T8 will sit alongside the Polestar enhanced XC90 T8 as the most powerful Volvos ever offered.

Remarkably, the 313kW output doesn’t affect fuel economy.

Volvo tell us the optimisation improves five key areas of the powertrain while retaining fuel consumption of as little as just 2.1L/100km.

Oh, and you still get the 45km EV range as well!

“Our goal is to create usable performance in everyday driving situations for Volvo owners who want an enhanced driving experience,” said Henrik Fries, Vice President, Research and Development at Polestar.

“The new XC60 has provided us with an excellent base to work on with a dynamic chassis and a state of the art powertrain.

“With the Polestar optimisation, it makes the new Volvo XC60 a true drivers’ car.”
