The Polestar Engineered Volvo S60 T8 Will Be Extremely Rare in America
We’d like to apologize if our articles previewing the Volvo S60 T8 Polestar Engineered got you excited about the American-made model because you probably won’t get to lay your greasy little hands on one.
Volvo previously stated that the special sedans would only be available in extremely limited quantities. We assumed that meant the manufacturer would probably only build a couple hundred per year at most. As it turns out, that number was a gross overestimate. However, even if you are fortunate enough to have one in your garage, you still won’t be able to own it.
According to a report from Autoblog, Volvo has decided to limit the United States to just 20 examples of the Polestar Engineered S60 sedans. Ready for more bad news? The model will only be available through the Care by Volvo subscription service, so you can’t just buy one. Instead, you’ll have to put $1,100 a month down to effectively make the sport sedan your long-term rental.
While that’s roughly on par with financing a BMW M4, and Volvo does supply you with insurance and maintenance, you still get to own the M model when all is said and done. Volvo isn’t even giving you the option. The closest you can get is purchasing the S60 T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid for $54,400 and spray painting the calipers gold.
If the subscription mandate hasn’t soured you on the model, you’ll have to be quick if you want become its temporary caregiver. Orders begin June 28th at noon (Eastern) via the Care by Volvo app. With only 20 examples on offer, we expect them all to be spoken for rather quickly.
