Lotus-tuned suspensions could be used in upcoming Volvo models

Lotus-tuned suspensions could be used in upcoming Volvo models

Volvo has told reporters that future Volvo cars will use Lotus’ expertise in suspension tuning.

Roger Wallgren, Volvo’s principal engineer of vehicle dynamics, revealed this bit of information even as the industry awaits Lotus’ entry into the Geely line-up — a deal that’s to be finalised with Proton by July. He added that though there haven’t been any elaborate plans made as of yet, Lotus’ tremendous know-how in the field may be used across all of Geely’s applications in the future. 

If things turn out the way they should, it is very likely that Volvo’s performance-oriented ‘Polestar’ would be on top on the list of receivers. Wallgren told reporters that the Geely group is ambitious in its approach with Volvo and is looking to invest heavily in the Polestar division. Sources admit that Geely promises to unleash the full potential of Lotus, and judging by how the brand is doing with Volvo, it sure looks like Audi Sport, BMW M and Mercedes-AMG may have an apt competitor a few years down the line. Stay tuned to CarWale for more news on Volvo’s plans in the future.
