"Our performance-oriented customers have told us they wanted a tuning option for their vehicles" says Christ Dauerer who is Volvo of North America's vice president of customer service. While this first offering only bumps up the power of T5 engines by 23 horses, hopefully it will pave the way for more extreme performance offerings from Volvo. We would love to see Polestar become the Swedish equivalent of AMG. 

If you want those extra 23 horses, you'll have to pay your friendly local Volvo dealer $1,295 for the luxury. You won't, however, have to give up the luxury of a warranty.
