Polestar Performance and Polestar Peformance Parts

Polestar performance

Our optimization for DRIVE-E engines is the result of the comprehensive development of five critical performance areas. Together they make a complete performance package that takes driving to another level.

With more then 20 years of experience of track racing the world over Polestar has conquered pole position in terms of performance. Our team makes use of everything we’ve learnt on the racing track in order to create products that improve your driving experience.

The result is better torque, more power output, quicker response time but without increased running costs.

Throttle response

Throttle response has been calibrated respond more quickly to driver acceleration — perfect for overtaking or active driving on winding roads.

Acceleration pedal response

The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to redpond more quickly when the driver suddenly releases the accelerator. Which makes the car behave more predictably and increases control.

Faster gear changes

Gear change speed has been improved on the automatic gearbox, which means the car accelerates faster and responds more quickly to the driver’s commands.
