Polestar optimization for the S60 includes upgraded suspension and braking components for a thrilling drive. Performance styling, a beautifully crafted interior and intuitive technology complete a package with true dynamism at its core.
The plug-in hybrid powertrain of the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered combines a supercharged and turbocharged gas engine with an electric motor, for a combined 415-hp and instant acceleration. All-wheel drive provides more control and agility.
Four different driving modes cover every driving condition. Power mode gives you maximum performance by getting the most out of the gas engine and electric motor, while AWD covers challenging road conditions.
For everyday journeys, Hybrid automatically delivers the best mix of gas and electric power for maximum fuel efficiency. Pure runs only the electric motor with zero tailpipe emissions. And Individual mode allows you to tailor the car’s settings specifically for you.
The interior of the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered mixes Scandinavian luxury with sporty design. Contour Seats give you added support and comfort. Nappa Leather and Open Grid Textile upholstery for the seats and a leather-clad sport steering wheel add to the elegant feel. Metal Mesh Aluminium décor panels on the dashboard and tunnel console provide the finishing touches, while exclusive gold seatbelts set the interior apart.
The S60 T8 Polestar Engineered is fitted with brakes that were developed in collaboration with renowned specialists Brembo. Six-piston calipers and ventilated 14.6-inch brake discs on the front wheels offer impressive braking power.
Lightweight Polestar Engineered 19″ forged alloy wheels add to this sedan’s sporty look. The reduced unsprung weight of the forged – rather than cast – rims adds an extra degree of agility.
Rediscover the joy of driving in the all-wheel drive, plug-in hybrid S60 T8 Polestar Engineered. Meticulously crafted bespoke suspension enhancements – developed by Polestar with components from Swedish suspension experts Öhlins – help to create a performance sports sedan that handles any road with intuitive agility and confidence.
The suspension developed by Polestar for the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered features shock absorbers created by Swedish suspension experts Öhlins, using Dual Flow Valve technology. This innovation – unique to Öhlins – means that the car responds quicker to any road-surface imperfections.
The S60 R-Design delivers true driving pleasure. High-gloss black exterior details and a choice of unique alloy wheel designs clearly communicate the car’s personality. Contour seats, charcoal headlining and unique interior trim confirm that this is a car designed for those who love to drive. Stiffer, lower suspension gives even more responsive handling and a focused feel. And the range-topping T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid provides effortless performance.
