As an official partner of Volvo Cars, Polestar has been optimizing our cars for the racing circuits since 1996, and now we are making this technology available to you. Polestar Performance enhances throttle-response, torque and power in your Volvo, without increasing the certified fuel consumption or affecting your Volvo's Original Warranty.
Polestar Performance increases the performance of your Volvo
Polestar Performance optimizes the power and torque in your Volvo. It makes the car more lively and fun to drive and increases safety in situations where you need extra performance, such as when passing. All this without increasing fuel consumption or affecting your Volvo's Original Warranty.
Power optimization is developed by Polestar's technicians, who have optimized 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 power optimization for your Volvo, installed by your Volvo workshop, while retaining the Original Warranty. Now 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 made possible by our efficient engine tuning, which only increases the power output when it is needed, i.e. for passing, long uphill gradients or driving with heavy trailers. This also means that the car's environmental impact remains unchanged and keeps within the limits for permitted certified emissions. In practice, it is fully possible to use Polestar's power optimization 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 judgment result in better engine performance and increased active safety in traffic. Better acceleration allows faster overtaking of slow-moving vehicles such as trucks, trailers and RVs. Quite simply, it reduces the time required to complete the pass. 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 optimized for racing. You want the car to be optimized for driving on streets and roads.
