Polestar Performance Optimisation enhances driving pleasure and increases the performance of your Volvo. The technology has been developed by Polestar in close cooperation with engineers at Volvo. The car feels more active to drive while simultaneously increasing safety in situations where further performance is required, for example when overtaking.

All engines are optimised with a focus on torque and power within the speed range that the driver usually uses, i.e. the midrange. The increased performance comes when it is needed most; on long up-hills or for overtaking, which provides increased safety, as better acceleration reduces the time it takes to overtake.

For cars with Drive-E engine, not only is the engine power optimised but so is gearbox and throttle response. The gearbox changes more quickly, does not change gear in the middle of a bend during active driving and throttle response is re-calibrated for a more active driving feel.

All of this is offered without an increase in the certified fuel consumption or emissions level, which means that the car's environmental impact remains unchanged.

The optimisation can only be installed by authorised Volvo dealers whilst maintaining Volvo's original warranty and installation can be carried out quickly when the car is in for a service or a tyre change for example.
