Volvo has announced the production start of the S60 and V60 Polestar in Sweden, at the Torslanda facility.

“We are very happy to see the first ever complete production cars from Polestar be built in the Volvo factory. It is a satisfying result of many hours of work by the people of Polestar and Volvo behind this”, said the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar Technical Project Manager, Henrik Fries.

Volvo will be producing a total of 750 units of the S60 and V60 Polestar this year and they will be sold in markets such as the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Canada, United States and Japan. The vehicles will get a tuned chassis with high performance brakes and dampers. Power to the models in question is being provided by a 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 engine, which is sending power to the four-wheel drive. The unit is producing a total output of 345 HP (257 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque and it is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes less than 5 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
