Before Polestar became its own electric performance car brand it was Volvo’s hot rod shop, adding some Swedish zip to select models. But the name still lives on in the new 60 series models - referred to as Polestar engineered with a go faster persona. The XC60 is Volvo’s best-selling model globally and is the brand’s number 2 here in the States. It’s a midsized, 5-passenger SUV built in both China and Sweden with U.S. imports delivered from Europe. We took the plug-in hybrid variant known as the T8 on vacation 2 summers ago and though I enjoyed my time with it, I concluded that the non-electrified T6 model was probably the best way to go.
