Η σουηδική εταιρία δεν ανακοίνωσε κατά πόσα κιλά μειώνεται το συνολικό βάρος του αυτοκινήτου, αλλά το σίγουρο είναι ότι χαμηλώνει το κέντρο βάρος του, με άμεσο θετικό αντίκτυπο στην οδηγική συμπεριφορά του.

Volvo V40 Carbon first to get new generation Polestar Performance Optimisation

The first model to get the new Polestar Performance Optimisation is the limited edition Volvo V40 Carbon.

The engineers of Polestar have transfered the same development philosophy as when optimising race cars to the new optimisation for the V40 Carbon. The key areas of improvement are drivability and driving control, fully utilising the latest and most advanced ever drivetrain from Volvo.

The Polestar optimisation has been designed to provide the driver with faster and more exact responses to commands. This enables a clear and predictable behaviour of the car, something that is important for all forms of active driving, no matter on a racing circuit or regular roads.

The development of the optimisation has been focused on five important performance areas of the drivetrain:

Throttle response

Gearshift speed

Gearshift precision and hold

Off-throttle response

Engine performance

A total of 343 V40 Carbon will be produced, available in Finland, France, Japan, the Netherlands and Sweden, with the T5 and D4 engine, producing 253 hp/400 Nm and 200 hp/440 Nm in peak power respectively with the Polestar optimisation*.

The increase in power and torque is concentrated to mid-range** performance, the key area of the engine for active driving, with a maximum increase of 25 hp/50 Nm for the T5 and 16 hp/40 Nm for the D4 in mid-range.

Furthermore, the V40 Carbon includes exclusive carbon details, unique 19-inch wheels, red seat belts and an extensive equipment package.

The first optimisations for other Volvo models with the new Drive-E engines will be released in the last week of June 2015, starting with the T6, T5, D5 and D4 engines, further information will be available here.
