Volvo Starts S60 and V60 Polestar Production
Volvo Cars has just started production of the new S60 and V60 Polestar in their Torslanda factory plant.
”We are very happy to see the first ever complete production cars from Polestar be built in the Volvo factory. It is a satisfying result of many hours of work by the people of Polestar and Volvo behind this,” said Henrik Fries, S/V60 Polestar Technical Project Manager.
”We are delighted to see the first cars leave the factory and it has been an exciting journey together with Polestar to see these cars from the drawing board until the actual finalized product being produced with us on the factory line,” added Magnus Hellsten, Vice President Car Manufacturing Europe at Volvo Cars.
A total of 750 cars will be produced of the S60 and the V60 Polestar model this year, heading to customers in Canada, the Netherlands, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the USA. The new Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar features a thoroughly developed chassis with high performance dampers and brakes which in combination with four-wheel drive and a mighty turbocharged 6-cylinder engine creates a driver’s car for all year.
