Volvo S60 Polestar: Fine balance

It was just recently that Volvo announced its plans to go completely off internal-combustion engines and that Polestar will be a separate entity that will focus purely on performance cars that ran on electric power. As a carmaker, Volvo now prefers to talk about the Nature Mother, the polar bears, lithium ions and extended range rather than BHP and torque figures. So then, it probably isn’t the right time to tell you about a Volvo Polestar that we drove on a racetrack, right? Wrong. You never deny a chance of driving a Polestar on a circuit. So here we are, driving the pants off the bright blue specimen you see on before you.
