The Volvo XC90 Polestar is under consideration
Among the future plans of Volvo comes in a version enhanced by Polestar of your new engine Drive E-. The block of four cylinders that will nourish the range of new models Volvo has in the present with versions up to 320 HP, however the preparer official expected to give a power superior to that of the current S60 and V60 Polestar.
The new block of four-cylinder will replace the current six-cylinder in-line of the S60 and V60 Polestar with some characteristics are clearly superior. The current models have with 345 HP and 500 Nm of torque, while the Drive-E will reach at least 350 HP along with the automatic eight relations. Such a figure of power will be achieved through the use of turbo as a supercharger
“ With the new engine, the weight will be reduced and the power will increase, but there will be almost half of the CO2 emissions. We believe that in the future high-performance cars must cope with the evolution of the environment. ” declared Niels Möller, Director of Operations Polestar.
The Drive block-And will reach at least 350 HP to versions Polestar
with Respect to a Volvo XC90 Polestar, Möller stated that “ everything is possible. Why not have a XC that you can go to the track also? “. This leaves the door open to this type of speculation. In fact some time ago that we announced that the coach had interest in the range XC.
¿But it makes sense XC90 Polestar 350 HP existing the XC90 T8 hybrid 400 CV? Yes, as the SUV sports would have a lower weight because it is not equipped with the electrical system auxiliary in its interior or batteries added. In addition does not depend on the level of charging to provide maximum power and a setting that is specific to other components such as the chassis.
finally, in the future ahead high performance hybrids signed. Since Volvo bought the whole Polestar the preparer has full access to the technology of the manufacturer including the hybrids. can You imagine a T8 Twin Engine fumbling for Polestar?
