Volvo starts production of the new V60 Polestar at Torslanda plant

The first Volvo V60 Polestar cars have left the Volvo Torslanda factory plant on their way to customers around the world as production has begun.

"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 after 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 to 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 V60 Polestar model this year, heading to customers in Canada, the Netherlands, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the USA.

The new Volvo V60 Polestar features a thoroughly developed chassis with high performance dampers and brakes which in combination with four-wheel drive and 350 hp from a turbo charged 6-cylinder engine creates a driver's car for all year.
