Polestar To Gift The World With The Hot Volvo We've Always Wanted
Polestar, for those of you that do not know, is Volvo's performance brand. As the M badge is to BMW, Polestar is to Volvo. Which is funny because you'd never think of Volvo as having a performance arm. Most people consider Volvo to be reserved, poised, and understated while being supremely safe. Well, they are those things, except when Polestar gets their hands on stuff they are also wicked fast.
Let's remind everyone just what Polestar is all about. Remember back on Top Gear when Clarkson, Hammond, and May were the hosts? Of course you do. We all do. Remember when they tested the Polestar C30? No? Let me refresh your memory.
Yes, that's right, the insane people (read: glorious geniuses) inserted a 400hp engine into their smallest hatchback, the C30. Awesome. But recently Volvo and Chinese parent company Geely announced that Polestar is to become their own sub-brand. This is cool, but will Polestar still be slightly mad? According to their teaser for the unveiling of the first ever Polestar-only car, yes.
There's a swear in there! Volvo swore! I mean, wtf?! Joking aside, this does look like something really, REALLY good and I will personally be tuning in next week to see just what they have up their sleeves.
Oh and if you didn't know, we've bought ourselves a performance Volvo ourselves. Check it out below!
