Swedish auto major Volvo Cars today launched its performance-oriented sedan Volvo S60 Polestar at an introductory price of Rs. 52.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
With its first performance car in India, the company is looking for a push in the luxury segment as it targets to sell over 2,000 vehicles in the country this year.
The Volvo S60 Polestar is the quickest car from Volvo’s stable and can accelerate from 0-100km/hr in just 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/hr.
It is powered by a two-litre, twin-charged (turbo charged and super charged) petrol engine.
Polestar, which was founded as a motorsport team in 1996, is now the performance brand of Volvo Cars after its acquisition in 2015.
The S60 Polestar will compete with the likes of Mercedes C43 AMG, CLA45 AMG and Audi S5.
This is the ninth model that the company has launched in India.
Volvo Auto India sells eight luxury models, including V40 luxury hatchback, S60 sedan and SUV XC90.
