Polestar optimisation carries on the tradition of
adding a flavour of Polestar to your Volvo car with the help of
powertrain software enhancements. Designed to increase power,
acceleration, transmission performance
Our optimisation is the result of careful development work within five key areas. Together they form a balanced, well proven and thoroughly tested package of driving pleasure.
·Faster throttle response - Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.
·Faster gear changes - The automatic gearbox changes gears more quickly to both improve acceleration and to better respond to the driver's commands e.g. downshifts before overtaking.
·Better gear precision and gear hold - The gears have also been calibrated to exploit the engine's improved midrange performance. The gearbox also avoids changes when cornering at high g-forces (where possible), for better stability.
·Faster gear and engine response - The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to respond more quickly when the driver releases the accelerator. This makes the car more balanced and predictable when cornering for example.
Increased engine performance - We have concentrated the power where it is needed most - in the midrange; perfect for overtaking or when on a busy motorway. Combined with faster throttle response and gear changes, this makes the car significantly more dynamic to drive.
