There's always room for more Polestar updates. At least for Volvo's XC90
Polestar Performance Optimisation releases new generation of Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine update, making the vehicle world's most powerful and cleanest SUV ever produced. So, what does it mean?
It means that the vehicle now offers a rather high amount of power output: some sweet 421hp (314kW) and 680Nm of torque, which also means a short 5.5 seconds 0-100km/h sprint and somehow a wonderful 2.1liters per 100km fuel consumption. Cool, right?
This new generation of Polestar upgrading is not just engine-oriented. As any other Polestar package, this one brings improvements to not one, but five key areas: throttle response, gearshift hold, agility, speed and overall more aggressive road behavior, sometimes becoming off-road experience.
Also, one of the main focuses was the gear hold function that holds the selected gear during cornering at high speed. Polestar team claims that this prevents some unwanted gearshift in mid-cornering and contributes to the overall balance and progressive acceleration and smoothness.
One more interesting fact is that the four-time Scandinavian Touring Car Championship champion and Polestar Cyan Racing driver Björk has took part in the experiments and has contributed to the final result.
And the best news for all Volvo enthusiasts out there? The XC90 T8 Twin Engine upgrade is already available for purchase. So, don't waste time, go ahead, try it and tell us what you think!
