Last month Volvo revealed that its Polestar department would branch off into its own separate brand committed to high-performance electrified vehicles. And now one report declares that Polestar’s inaugural design will be a 600-hp coupe.
According to Autocar, Polestar is thinking about a 600-hp coupe with a hybrid powertrain and great deals of carbon fiber. To accomplish that target, the coupe would have to make quite a bit more power than existing models. Just recently, Polestar had the ability to tune the XC60 and XC90 plug-ins to produce about 420 hp, making them the most effective road-going Volvos ever.
Along with the coupe, Polestar is checking out the possibility of a second standalone model, however the identity of that car is still unknown. There are hints that Polestar’s brand-new vehicles will borrow a fair bit from Volvo’s present models. “Polestar will enjoy specific technological and engineering synergies with Volvo Cars and gain from substantial economies of scale as a result of its connection to Volvo,” the automaker stated. “These synergies will enable it to develop, establish and build world-beating electrified high-performance cars.”
This isn’t really the first time it has been told about a 600-hp Polestar car. A year ago, we found out Polestar wished to draw out 600-hp hybrid variations of the S90 and V90.
Developing its own bespoke vehicle might offer Polestar the boost it requires versus Mercedes-AMG, BMW M, and Audi RS. The high-powered Polestar coupe might be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
