"I have just returned from racing in Australia where I spent a lot of time behind the wheel of my Volvo S60 Polestar. First thing when I got back to Sweden, I picked up my Volvo V60 Polestar and drove it 1200 kilometres from Polestar to my home in the north of Sweden. I have lived with it in the harsh and hot conditions of Australia, as well as the cold and snowy Sweden and it delivers a great driving experience as well as driver confidence wherever you go,” said Robert Dahlgren, Polestar racing and development driver.
