Polestar has announced availability of a power upgrade for the Volvo V60 D6 Plug-in Hybrid.
The high-performance diesel wagon continues with a 2.4-liter 5-cylinder engine working with an electric motor but the combined output has increased by 15 bhp (11 kW) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) to a grand total of 298 bhp (222 kW) and 670 Nm (494 lb-ft) of torque which Polestar says makes it the most powerful diesel-powered Volvo ever.
While the stock car needs 6.1 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h), Polestar's version can do it 0.1 seconds quicker without affecting the vehicle's amazing combined fuel consumption of only 1.8 liters / 100 km with (130.6 mpg US or 157 mpg UK) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 48 g/km. They didn't say anything about the top speed but we remind you the regular V60 D6 Plug-in Hybrid is electronically-limited to 143 mph (230 km/h) in hybrid mode and to 75 mph (120 km/h) when running solely on electric power.
The power upgrade is offered without voiding the warranty and for the moment it can be purchased in Sweden, United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
