Volvo has introduced a new line of Polestar performance parts to improve the styling and performance of selected models

Polestar performance parts will be available for the Volvo S60, V40, V60 and XC60 from April, and on other models in the future. 

A range of chassis parts, wheels, exhausts, interior trim and exterior enhancements will be offered. The Polestar performance parts have been developed alongside Volvo and having them fitted won't have an impact on a car's factory warranty. 

Polestar boss Niels Möller said: "We have received strong feedback over a long period of time from customers all over the world regarding Polestar performance parts. We are delighted to now be able to meet that demand.”

The performance equipment has been developed by Polestar, which has 20 years of motorsport experience, as well as its motorsport partner Cyan Racing. It is Volvo's official tuning partner. 

Polestar’s research and development director, Henrik Fries, said: "Lessons learned on the track are transferred directly into the development of our road cars and performance products. The new range of Polestar performance parts is no exception; they are designed and developed with the very same philosophy.”

Prices for Polestar performance parts, which will be sold at Volvo dealerships, will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
