Volvo has announced plans to expand their lineup of Polestar Performance packages in the United States.

While they're no substitute for official R models, the packages include an optimized ECU which enables the T6 engine to produce 325 hp (242 kW / 330 PS) and 355 lb-ft (481 Nm) of torque - an increase of 25 hp (18 kW / 25 PS) and 30 lb-ft (41 Nm). Despite the extra oomph, Volvo says fuel consumption is unaffected.

The Polestar package will be available on a variety of models - including the XC60, S60 and XC70 - and pricing starts at $1,495 (€1,120) installed.
