This is Polestar

Polestar is the performance brand of Volvo Cars with the mission to define future premium performance.

Whether it’s winning championships, or developing performance cars, the goal is always the same: To deliver the best possible results. No matter what.

Volvo, only Volvo

We work exclusively with Volvo cars. And we are proud of our long lasting co-operation with one of the world ́s most technically advanced car manufacturers. Volvo is widely known for its groundbreaking achievements in car safety.

This also means that a Volvo is a perfect platform for developing extreme race cars as well as responsive and safe performance cars for the open road. The Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar are proof of this. To us, Volvo is about inventive engineering and dedicated people who create smart, strong and reliable cars. And when you set out to explore the limits of power, speed and traction, it’s good to start with a solid foundation.

Only one way to victory

Working with racing cars means achieving perfection in every detail, never leaving any room for failure. However, winning is also about rapid and continuous development, to never rest, to continue searching for optimal solutions in every aspect.

When we take on new team members, we don’t differentiate between those who drive our racing cars and those who drive our transporters. Whether you are a chassis engineer, a mechanic, or work with finance, you share the same beliefs and ambitions as the rest of the team. To do your best. To win.

Volvo Cars Partner in Motorsport since 1996

Our history with Volvo began with the 850 in 1996, at the birth of the Swedish Touring Car Championship. Since then we have raced with the S40, S60, C30 and the new S60. Over time, more and more responsibility was handed to us. The more we learned, and the closer we worked with Volvo’s own engineers, the more trust we gained. Today, Polestar is Volvo’s Performance Brand.

Volvo Cars Official Performance partner

Polestar was appointed official performance partner in 2009, when the Polestar Performance Optimisation for Volvo road cars was introduced. The next step was taken in 2010, when Polestar completed the Volvo C30 Polestar Concept car, a hint at what was to come in 2014, when the first production car from Polestar together with Volvo was introduced: the Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar.

Our engines are born on the race track

A racing car engine is by definition a fine tuned instrument built to perform on the borderline of failure. After almost two decades of pushing Volvo cars to their limits on the race track, we think it’s safe to say that we know quite a lot about how to build fast and efficient Volvo engines.

Developing an optimal race engine is a mix between science and engineering art and at Polestar we take great pride in developing and building our own. Our engineers have built bio-ethanol engines for the S2000 regulation as well as the 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbo for WTCC and the naturally aspirated V8 for the V8 Supercars in Australia.


Why does this matter to you?

If you share our passion for Volvo, you can rest assured we will continue doing what we’ve done for nearly two decades. We devote every single day to develop, test, race and evaluate in order to find more control, speed and efficiency. The experiences gained on the race track then go straight into the Polestar performance products you can buy from your local Volvo dealer.

When you buy a Polestar engineered car or a Polestar performance product, you get a piece of Polestar Cyan Racing along with it. All our products have been developed and tested by Polestar’s team of drivers and engineers, as well as Volvo’s own specialists.

This is our promise and your guarantee. A guarantee you will not find anywhere else.
