FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO (February 6, 2014) – Volvo introduced performance-oriented Polestar editions of the 2014 S60 sedan and V60 wagon during the Media Preview of the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. They are the quickest models Volvo has ever offered for the everyday use.

“We begin a new chapter in Volvo’s history shaped directly by Volvo, for Volvo, and for our customers,” said Tony Nicolosi, president and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America. “In 2013 we began to transform our company with new high-performance and high-efficiency products and a commitment to being the most consumer-centric brand."

The 2014 S60 and V60 Polestar were designed in partnership with Swedish company, Polestar, and the Volvo Racing Team to make the car more efficient for active driving. The exterior was redesigned to be more aerodynamic. Nubuck is featured on the steering wheel as well as throughout the interior.

“The journey to designing these cars began in 2009 with the question, ‘What really makes a car great?’” said Hans Baath, marketing director for Polestar. “The answer is a car that provides true performance, precision and driver confidence in all weather conditions and on all roads, leading to the design of the S60 and V60 Polestar.”

Volvo hasn’t announced pricing for the S60 and V60, but they will be available beginning summer 2014.
