Polestar Power Optimization

 
Download Two Decades of Motorsport Experience to your Volvo.
Are you already driving a Volvo or perhaps thinking of buying a new? Then we have an offer for you where you can get some Polestar power without buying an engineered Polestar car. Polestar's power optimization comes as a standard installation in all T6 R-Design S/V/XC60 but can be installed in a number of other models as well. It increases the standard engines horsepower and torque, offering you an enhanced driving experience.

The technology has been developed by Polestar in close co-operation with Volvo's power train engineers. The optimization consists of a software upgrade installed by any Volvo authorized dealer. It's a quick installation which can easily be done while your car is in for a service or tire change.

The Only Optimization Guaranteed to enhance the Performance of Your Volvo.
The close co-operation with Volvo's engine development engineers means that your Volvo original warranty remains intact and no alterations to the service schedule is needed.

Volvo is a high quality car built with advanced engineering, solid components and with focus on safety and reliability. This makes Volvo the perfect starting point for performance enhancements. When Polestar's team of engineers develops a new product, they consider the precise limits of what each and every component is designed to handle.

Since your Volvo is a strong and well-built car you can safely get more out of it without risking negative side-effects. An added bonus is that your Polestar upgrade more than likely will increase the resale value of your car. So after getting your Polestar car or performance upgrade installed don't forget to register it with Polestar to receive a product certificate which verifies that your car has been officially optimized by Polestar.


Your Volvo is Made to be Optimized

 Polestar's fully integrated, sophisticated tune is not a "bolt-on" solution. For example the upgrade re-optimizes and keeps full functionality in all of the many built-in safety functions designed to save the engine in case of a partial system malfunction. It has been developed and thoroughly tested at the Volvo Engine Laboratories using the same elaborate testing procedures that Volvo uses for their standard engines.  The software re-calibrates hundreds of parameters that control the engine. The changes include:

Increase of turbocharger boost pressure 
Re-optimization of ignition- and fuel-mapping 
Re-calibration of throttle-response
