Volvo will launch the S60 Polestar in India On April 14. The term Polestar is to Volvo like AMG is to Mercedes and M-division is to BMW.
Its powered by a specially-enhanced version of Volvo s award-winning 2.0-litre four cylinder petrol Drive-E powertrain. It delivers 367PS of power and 467Nm of torque, which is 61PS and 67Nm more than the standard variant. The car makes the zero to 100kmh sprint in 4.7 seconds and is limited to a top speed of 250kmh.
Polestar has taken an original S60 and added a bigger turbo, a supercharger, new conrods, new camshafts, a larger air intake and a higher capacity fuel pump to augment the engine, and matched it with a BorgWarner four-wheel drive system and the new Polestar-optimised eight-speed Geartronic automatic gearbox. The S60 Polestar is likely to hover around the Rs 60-65 lakh mark.
