Polestar Performance gives your Volvo more performance
Polestar Performance optimises the power and torque in your Volvo. It makes the car more agile and fun to drive and it increases safety in situations where you need extra performance, e.g. when overtaking. All this without increasing the fuel consumption or affecting your Volvo's Original Warranty.
The power optimisation is developed by Polestar's technicians who have optimised Volvo cars for racing circuits since 1996. Our skills are well documented in the results lists. Our long collaboration with Volvo now makes it possible to offer the power optimisation for your Volvo, installed by your local Volvo dealer, while retaining the Original Warranty. You no longer need to take risks with "chip tuning" to achieve an enhanced driving experience
Fuel consumption and the environment
A Volvo with the Polestar Performance package has the same certified fuel consumption as the standard version. This is possible thanks to our efficient tuning of the engine, which only increases the power output when it is needed, i.e. for overtaking, long uphill gradients or driving with heavy trailers.
This also means that the car's environmental impact remains unchanged, it is maintained within the limits for the certified emissions that are permitted. In practice it is fully possible to use Polestar's power optimisation to reduce fuel consumption slightly, if you drive in an environmentally sound manner with rapid acceleration and maintain an even speed with low engine load.
Improved performance and higher safety in the hands of a driver with good judgement result in better engine performance and increased passive safety in traffic. Better acceleration allows faster overtaking of slow moving vehicles such as trucks, trailers and caravans. Quite simply it reduces the time required to complete the overtaking. Volvo's original speed inhibitor is unchanged.
We give your Volvo higher power output and better torque in the range the engine most often works in. Our racing drivers call this improving the car's driveability. They want the car to be optimised for racing, you want the car optimised for driving on streets and roads.
Fast and easy to install at your Volvo dealer
Polestar Performance can be installed by all Volvo dealers. If you have ordered in advance the work is carried out promptly, and you can collect your upgraded Volvo the same day. The work could well be carried out in connection with a regular service, tyre change, installation of Volvo accessories or reconditioning. As with other Volvo Original Accessories, Polestar Performance can increase the resale value of your Volvo.
Polestar can be purchased from £620 fully fitted including VAT.
