The Swedish based automaker Volvo is planning to develop new Polestar models, aside from the already available S60 Polestar.
The announcement hasn’t been made officially but according to the guys at news.drive.com.au, new Polestar models are being considered already. The upcoming Polestar vehicles are expected to be based on the new V40 and on the XC60, as well, according to the Volvo Cars Australia boss, Matt Braid, who has spoken to our source. The desire for the Polestar lineup expansion has been made but Braid says that “it’s too early to say anything”, so don’t act too surprised if you will see some spy images with test mules over the following months.
As a quick reminder, the Volvo S60 Polestar is powered by a 2,953 cc inline six-cylinder engine, which is good for 350 HP (257 kW) and 500+ Nm of torque (369+ lb-ft), sent to the Haldex all-wheel drive system through the six-speed automatic transmission. The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The 1,684 kg (3,712 lbs) high-performance sedan is stopped by Brembo ventilated discs, 336×29 mm and 302.22 mm front to rear.
