Polestar Engineered & Optimised
At Volvo we understand what drives you. We understand that sometimes you want more performance, a little more response, and a lot of pure electric torque. That’s why we, together with Polestar, have developed the Polestar Engineered trim level and engine software optimisation for our new models.
Designed to perform
How do you improve an already great driving experience? By harnessing the power of electrification in our T8 Twin Engine and complementing it with high-end performance parts, Polestar engineers have fine-tuned the cars to deliver an engaging and electrified driving experience.
Take the long way home
Our Polestar Engineered cars use high performance parts from some of the most respected suppliers in the business. Every component is fine-tuned and engineered to work together in order to enhance driving enjoyment. The highly controlled and intuitive driving characteristics, in combination with powerful plug-in hybrid propulsion technology, deliver an involving, electrified, driving experience designed to make a statement.

Polestar Engineered engine optimisation
Polestar Engineered engine optimisation carries on the tradition of adding a flavour of Polestar to your Volvo car with the help of powertrain software enhancements. Designed to increase power, acceleration, transmission performance (automatic only) and all-wheel drive torque, Polestar Optimisation can be added to new and existing Volvo models. Please talk to your dealer for more information.

The race for perfection
In this article, we visit the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard in Lisbon, Portugal. Here, we meet the team of experts responsible for repairing and re-fitting the entire fleet of Volvo Ocean 65 boats that will compete in the 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. We describe each team member’s individual area of expertise and show how the team works together to ensure that each boat is repaired identically, on time and to the highest possible standard. Their expertise in different areas represents the same level of competence you find at a Volvo workshop. We also meet Swedish sailor Martin Strömberg, who won the 2011-12 edition of the race, to find out what a great service programme gives him as a sailor.
