Polestar set its sights on the V60 D6 Plug-in Hybrid, and in turn has created the most powerful Diesel-powered Volvo ever. With 298hp and 670Nm (495 ft/lbs) of torque, the Polestar V60 D6 can sprint to 60mph in about 6 seconds, without negatively affecting fuel economy or emissions levels. Polestar tuning for the Volvo V60 D6 is currently available at Volvo dealers in Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

The latest model to be included in the Polestar Performance range is the Volvo V60 D6 Plug-in Hybrid. The Polestar optimisation increases the power output to a total of 298 hp and 670 Nm, making it the strongest ever diesel model from Volvo.
"The Polestar optimisation for the V60 D6 combines a strong fuel economy with performance. We are happy to be able to offer the Volvo customers with more driving pleasure in combination with the latest hybrid technology, a very interesting area for the future," said Hans Bååth, marketing director for Polestar.
The new optimisation increases the power of the diesel engine with 15 hp and 30 Nm, including an optimised power graph. Combined with the electric engine of 68 hp and 200 Nm, the performance figures are improved to 0-100 km/h in 6.0 seconds, this with unchanged fuel consumption and emission levels: 1.8 l/100 km and 48 g/km.

The optimisation makes the car more fun to drive, at the same time as it increases the safety in situations where you need extra performance, for example during an overtaking maneuver.

Polestar Performance is installed by your Volvo dealer with retained Volvo warranty. The work can 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.
