Polestar Engineers have taken a holistic approach with engine optimisation software, to take the driving experience to a new level. No fewer than five key functions have been optimised to provide faster response, better balance and more intuitive driving. This results in a car that responds quickly and predictably, which is important for those who engage in active driving, whether on the racetrack or on the road. With more than 20 years' racing experience, Polestar is at the forefront when it comes to performance optimisation. What has been learnt from motorsport is taken into the development of new products. The goal is always the same - to offer all Volvo owners an even greater driving experience.

Our optimisation is the result of careful development work within five key areas. Together they form a balanced, well proven and thoroughly tested package of driving pleasure.

  • Faster throttle response - Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.
  • Faster gear changes - The automatic gearbox changes gears more quickly to both improve acceleration and to better respond to the driver's commands e.g. downshifts before overtaking.
  • Better gear precision and gear hold - The gears have also been calibrated to exploit the engine's improved midrange performance. The gearbox also avoids changes when cornering at high g-forces (where possible) for better stability.
  • Faster gear and engine response - The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to respond more quickly when the driver releases the accelerator. This makes the car more balanced and predictable when cornering for example.
  • Increased engine performance - We have concentrated the power where it is needed most - in the midrange; perfect for overtaking or when on a busy motorway. Combined with faster throttle response and gear changes this makes the car significantly more dynamic to drive.
