The trim will also only be offered on the top-tier T8 plug-in hybrid variants of these vehicles.

The Polestar Engineered trim's upgrades are comprehensive. It includes a retuned engine computer that ups horsepower to 415 and torque to 494 pound-feet. That's an increase of 15 horsepower and 22 pound-feet of torque. Handling improvements are made with new springs and adjustable Öhlins shocks. There's also a strut tower brace for additional rigidity. Volvo says the design of the shocks and the brace are based on those used in the Polestar 1sports car. The Polestar Engineered vehicles also come with Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers, more aggressive pads, and slotted rotors.
