“Electric cars are a future,” pronounced Håkan Samuelsson, boss and CEO during Volvo Cars, and “today starts a new epoch of Volvo electrified models extended by Polestar’s opening engineering prowess.”
Indeed, Volvo recently announced that all of a destiny Polestar products – consider Mercedes-Benz’s AMG or BMW’s M products – would be electric.
However, judging by a new recover of a S60 T8 Polestar Engineered, it competence be some-more accurate to contend that “electrification” is a destiny of Volvo.
Nonetheless, this latest S60 – Volvo’s premiere sports sedan, says Samuelsson – is an considerable square of kit. Top-of-the-line Brembo monoblock six-pot calibers, embellished in an eye-catching gold, now hoop a braking duties, disdainful Ohlins shocks ascent a cessation and a lean bar from a arriving Polestar 1 creates physique hurl all though non-existent.
And lest we consider this is only nonetheless another cosmetic ascent with no tangible beef to compare a sizzle, a upgraded electrified T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain has been upgraded to an M3-challenging 415 horsepower and a limit 494 pound-feet of torque. I’ll remind readers that a basement of all Volvo powertrains is a feisty small turbocharged inline-four.
I’m not certain about Volvo’s skeleton to go entirely electric, though anytime we can get roughly 500 pound-feet from only dual litres, pointer me up.
