Polestar Enginerred
& Optimized

Polestar Engineered

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.

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.

Design



Optimising the complete powertrain

The following features have been optimized to deliver a better, more balanced and stronger driving experience.



Throttle Response

Quicker Passing

Throttle response has been recalibrate to provide improved feedback & acceleration reaction -ideal for passing or during active driving on a twisted road.



Improve Predictability & Control*

The engine and transmission have been calibrated to provide faster responses when the driver suddenly releases the throttle, providing predictability & control. * Automatic transmission only

Off-Throttle Response



Gearshift Speed

Faster gearshifts & acceleration

Shift speed has been increased, allowing the car to accelerate faster and react more directly to driver input.
* Automatic transmission only



Better precision, smarter gear shifts*

Gearshift has been optimised to provide a more precise driving experience with faster acceleration. Gearshift points have been calibrated to utilise the optimised mid-range engine performance, while the gear hold function maintains the same gear when cornering with high lateral g-force.
* Automatic transmission only

Gearshift Precision & Gear Hold



Engine Performance

More power when it matters

All Drive-E Optimisations are made to provide greater performance in the engine's mid-range powerband band- perfect for the sporty driver wnen passing, entering a highway or coming out of a turn.



Increased torque to the rear wheels for a more dynamic experience

Increased torque to the rear wheels for a more dynamic experience results in both improved control during cornering and better traction at take off. Available for non-hybrid SPA & CMA vehicles with AMD from model year 2016 & onwards.

Safety




Enhance your Volvo car in approximately 60 minutes

Our optimizations are installed – in about an hour – by authorized Volvo Cars dealers. Your original warranty and service intervals are unaffected, as are fuel consumption and emission levels (oz/mile).
