A stylish Volvo hybrid sports coupe...

At first sight, an All-American football star fell in love with a gorgeous blonde Swedish model...
(China's Geely) Volvo's first in-house tuner hybrid coupe, Polestar I, a 2+2 600hp and 738 lb/ft torque. The powertrain combines the D-E 2 L four-cylinder engine to power the front tires and a pair of torque-vectoring electric motors at the rear tires. The 218 hp e-motors are powered by a 34-kWh battery pack with a 150 k/93 mile range. The muscular carbon-fiber coupe design uses Volvo's Scalable Platform Architecture; chassis and suspension componentry commonality would allow Volvo to develop additional models; family sedans, crossovers and SUVs.
Ford Mustang fans adjust their eyesights.
The 2020 Polestar 1 Is a Gorgeous, Volvo-Based 600-HP Hybrid Coupe

My wife likes the look of it. Enough said.
