What are the benefits of Polestar engineered optimisation?

Unlock your new drive mode - Polestar Engineered

Your Volvo is currently tuned for comfort driving as standard. This performance upgrade optimises your vehicle towards a sports style drive. This is achieved is through adding mid-range torque. The torque range is brought down, so it can be accessed at a lower speed.

The midrange power takes impact when you need it most. It's perfect for overtaking, giving instant and responsive feedback. Previous customers have talked about the benefits during traffic, being able to get out of difficult situations quickly.

Overall this generates significant performance benefits. Your 0-60 is reduced by 0.2 seconds while maintaining fuel efficiency. Faster gear changes give more acceleration with a responsive drive.

Energetic, Dynamic & Invigorating

The technology of polestar optimisation is not limited to the engine, the whole powertrain is enhanced. This brings a renewed performance driving experience.

The package itself is refined from the polestar racing team. This brings the most effective point from the track to the road to be used on an everyday basis.

The upgrade also comes with the polestar optimised rank badge. This will be fitted to your vehicle with the upgrade purchase.

Unsure if its for you? We offer a 14 day trial, the package is refundable.

Summary of benefits with Polestar Engineered Optimisation

Increased Engine Performance - An installation of midrange power that's perfect for overtaking.

Faster Gear Changes - Quicker changes give faster acceleration resulting in a more responsive drive

Gear Precision & Gear Hold - Calibration to exploit the midrange performance. Gear Hold ensures changes are not made while cornering, keeping power consistent.

Faster Throttle Response - Recalibration of throttle response resulting in increased responsiveness. This gives precise, sharp drive for the user.

Faster Gear and Engine Response - Improved engine and gearbox response from driver to vehicle. Overall making the drive more balanced and predictable.

Polestar AWD feature - Unique feature for AWD vehicles. Increases torque distribution to rear wheels resulting in a more dynamic drive.

D5 Over Boost - Unique D5 engine power enhancement. An additional 15hp & 20Nm of torque becomes available for up to 20 seconds after the powertrain reaches its peak.

Polestar engineered optimisation benefit 1
Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.
Polestar engineered optimisation benefit 2
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.
Polestar engineered optimisation benefit 3
The gears are calibrated to exploit the engine's improved mid-range performance. The gearbox also avoids changes when cornering at high g-forces (where possible) for improved stability.
Polestar engineered optimisation benefit 4
We have concentrated the power where it is needed most - in the mid-range; 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.
Polestar engineered optimisation benefit 5
Polestar have introduced an “Over boost” function for the D5 engine that provides an additional +20nm Torque and +15hp power for up to 20 seconds. This additional power and torque is over and above the already increased output
Polestar engineered optimisation benefit 6
This feature is included in all new optimisations for AWD vehicles. The upgrade increases torque distribution to the rear wheels of Volvo cars equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), for more dynamic driving.
