Our optimization for Drive-E engines is the result of careful development work in five key areas. Together they form a complete solution that takes your driving to a new level.
Knowledge Is Power
With more than 20 years on the track, Polestar is at the leading edge of performance. Our team uses everything we learnt on the racing circuit to engineer products that enhance your driving experience.
The gearshift speed has been increased, allowing the car to accelerate faster and react more directly to driver input.
The gearshift has been optimized to provide a more precise driving experience with faster acceleration. Gearshift points have been calibrated to utilize the optimized mid-range engine performance, while the gear hold function maintains the same gear (wherever possible) when cornering with high lateral g-force.
All Drive-E optimisations are made to provide greater performance in the engine’s mid-range power band - perfect for the sporty driver when overtaking, entering a highway or exiting a corner.
The throttle response has been recalibrated to provide improved feedback and accelerator reaction - ideal for overtaking or during active driving on a twisty road.
The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to provide faster responses when the driver suddenly lifts off the throttle, providing improved predictability and control.
