Talking 351 BHP Volvo S60 Polestar arrives in India

Volvo will evidently introduce Polestar cars in India in near future. A single unit of the 2017 S60 Polestar has been imported for certification. While the Polestar kit/upgrade have been available in India for quite some time, it would be the first time a full-fledged Polestar edition car would be on offer.

2017 S60 Polestar is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine capable of 351 BHP@6000 RPM and a torque of 470 Nm@3100-5000 RPM. Power is delivered to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. 0-100 km/h comes up in 4.7 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Look at that import price. It is just mouth watering. If the price stays the same for the retail, expect it to arrive at under 60l.

This car will go head on with the Audi S5 which is around 65 ex-showroom. It hasn't found very many takers at that price hence Volvo should price the S60 lower to get some sales.

Lower sales aside, such high-performance variants have a sureshot halo effect on the brand. They change the perception, especially in the eyes of enthusiasts. Volvo is surely hitting all the hot buttons. The sexy XC90 has greatly improved the brand's image (despite its 4-cylinder engine).

Sedans are getting seriously quick today. This figure is comparable to supercars of the 90s (e.g. Ferrari F355) .

We should ignore these import prices as they have no bearing on the final MRP.

Aren't the Duties / Taxes based on the import price?

Going by the previous Volvo trends, it could be priced as low as 50L ex-showroom. Specification wise, its in competition with CLA 45 AMG and yet to be launched 2017 Audi S5, both of which are in 65L+ bracket.
