How does the new Polestar tuning kit enhance your Volvo model?


The Polestar Performance Optimization increases the performance of your Volvo, offering you an enhanced driving experience

The technology has been developed by Polestar in close cooperation with the engineers of Volvo Cars. The optimization is exclusively installed by authorized Volvo dealers and it is a quick installation that can easily be done while your car is in for service.

Throttle Response

The throttle response has been optimized for improved feedback and response, for example when overtaking or during active driving on a twisty road. The calibration means that the engine responds faster to the commands of the driver and thereby provides a more precise driving experience.

Gearshift Speed*

The gearshift speed has been increased for the car to accelerate faster and react more direct to the commands of the driver, for example when shifting down fast ahead of an overtaking maneuver. A faster gearbox provides the driver with more direct control of the car.

Gearshift Precision and Gear Hold*

The gearshifts have been calibrated to provide a more direct and precise driving experience as well as faster acceleration. Gearshift points have been calibrated to efficiently utilize the optimized mid-range performance of the engine. The gear hold function holds the gear during cornering at high lateral g-forces, preventing unwanted gearshifts mid-corner that can unsettle the balance of the car.

Off-throttle Response*

The gearbox and engine has been calibrated to provide a faster response when the driver quickly lifts off the throttle for a brief moment, for example during a short period of braking ahead of a corner. These functions keep the car in balance during fast cornering and provide the drive with improved predictability and control of the car.
