Some rumors have been floating about regarding a Volvo S90 Polestar Edition, which would basically make a high-performance luxury sedan out of the already handsome S90. They might even give the same treatment to the V90 Estate as well. How lovely does that sound?
Speculation from CarThrottle begins with the top-spec S90 T8 and its turbocharged and supercharged four-banger, hybridized with an electric motor, already good for 410hp in total. Not bad.
But giving Polestar a crack at this powertrain could result in quite a bit more power.
“Polestar will still be sophisticated performance,” Volvo’s CEO, Håkan Samuelsson, Hybrid power is the direction that Polestar will go in. In a way, Tesla has legitimized electric performance, although Polestar will be more sophisticated again.”
In addition to more power, like the current S60 and V60 Polestar models, the S90 and V90 variants would get an exterior and interior makeover, more aggressive suspension, brake, and steering tuning, and more.
