Polestar upgrades the Volvo V60 D6 Plug-in Hybrid

Article by Christian A., on August 14, 2014

Although the idea of a powerful plug-in hybrid car is something new, that didn’t stop Polestar to take a closer look at the Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid. For those who don’t know, this model uses a 2.4-liter turbodiesel engine that generates 215 hp and 440 Nm of torque, as well as an electric motor with 68 hp and 200 Nm.

Thanks to a new optimization, the diesel engine was received an extra 15 hp and 30 Nm of torque, which means that the total output delivered by the hybrid system is now 298 hp and 670 Nm of torque. With these numbers, the V60 D6 Plug-In Hybrid accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds.

Despite the power increase, fuel consumptions remains the same: 1.8 l/100 km, which translates into 48 g/km CO2 emissions. What’s more interesting is that Polestar Performance is installed by a Volvo dealer with retained Volvo warranty.

”The Polestar optimisation for the V60 D6 combines a strong fuel economy with performance. We are happy to be able to offer the Volvo customers with more driving pleasure in combination with the latest hybrid technology, a very interesting area for the future,” said Hans Baath, marketing director for Polestar.
