If there is one thing we know at Polestar, it’s that there’s always room for improvement. In our Polestar optimisation program we focus on different key areas that will enhance your personal driving experience, taking it to a new level of control and excitement.
A Polestar Engineered Optimisation is not limited to the engine - the whole powertrain is enhanced. We focus on several crucial performance areas of the cars, giving you a more precise and balanced driving experience.
Your Volvo was created to make you feel connected, secure and comfortable. And now you can experience the excitement of enhanced performance. Our Polestar Optimisation software upgrade will bring heightened engine power, faster, more precise gear capability and fine-tuned throttle response
Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.
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.
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.
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.
This feature is included in all new optimisations for AWD vehicles. The feature can retrospectively be added to vehicles which currently have the optimisation via the Service Promise, Total Upgrade or Volvo Selekt Software. The upgrade increases torque distribution to the rear wheels of Volvo cars equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), for more dynamic driving.
The Polestar Optimisation software for the D5 (68) engine offers an exciting enhancement. Polestar have introduced an “Over boost” function that provides an additional +20nm Torque and +15hp power for up to 20 seconds once the peak power of the engine has been reached. This additional power and torque is over and above the already increased output figures that the Optimisation provides so you get an impressive boost when you need it most. The standard D5 (68) engine produces 235hp and 480nm torque. When this engine is Optimised and is in Over boost mode, the figures are increased to 255hp and 520nm torque.
Our optimisations are installed – in about an hour – by authorized Marshall Volvo Dealerships. Your original warranty and service intervals are unaffected, as are fuel consumption and emission levels (g/km)
