The S60 T8 Twin Engine Polestar Engineered, as it is called, will sit above the regular T8 Twin Engine variant of the new S60, which is due for reveal next week but was leaked online last month. It is the first of three confirmed Polestar Engineered models.

The other two will join the V60 and XC60 ranges in 2019 and kick-start Volvo’s shift towards electrification, plans for which will see 25% of the brand’s line-up using electrified power by 2025.
“Electric cars are our future,” said Håkan Samuelsson, CEO of Volvo. “Today starts a new era of Volvo electrified models enhanced by Polestar’s performance engineering prowess. This strategy is firmly grounded in our shared belief in an electric future for the car industry.”
