Is the NEW 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge a better SUV to BUY than a Tesla Model Y?

  1. 5:20 Has the Audi Q4 e-tron arrived in the US yet? I haven't seen one even at the dealers. Also 9:30, it's Swedish/Scandinavian not Teutonic. And no CarPlay, yet.

  2. I will take any car with gauges in front of you eyes, over an Ipad glued to the middle of the dashboard. Tesla- Lets take all the greatest tech we can find and then make a car less ergonomic for the eyes that a Model T.

  3. Beware! That is all made in China. If you buy one you are supporting a totalitarian brutal government of the Century. We got to remember there are no Private owned business in China they are all controlled by the communist members and their central government.

  4. It's a little too nice for a soccer mom car… Haha. Just kidding. Happy Mother's day to all!

  5. Nice ride but auto makers should think U.S people are taller, thicker in many ways than normal. We need vehicles more bigger, wider, more height and more legroom!!

  6. Illumination can frighten him who does not seek enlightenment. Wisdom is a gift conspired through love and through power. Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.

  7. I'm sorry but if the "future" is 220 mile range then fried chicken is healthier than vegetables. Great looking car but it would've been better if it had a really efficient V6 or 2.0 liter 4 cylinder, and I wanna know how they came up with 60k for this thing, there are so many better options than this for 60k.

  8. I watched the video and it was fantastic. I like the Volvo better than the Tesla Model Y. Those LED lights look so nice. I would get the Volvo C40. Lori's the best in the biz. ♥️♥️
    Raiti's Rides is a fantastic channel. 💪

  9. I think the Polestar 2 would be a better option than this if you don't need more trunk space. It looks better and has a far better infotainment system and more tech features and better value than this. It also has a similar ride height as it's slightly jacked up. The polestar 2 stars at 38700 with the federal tax credit which makes it a far better buy than this and has 270 miles of range instead of the 226 in this car.

  10. The real question …what does it actually do yo justify the price premium over the XC 40 Recharge?

  11. I would take the Volvo
    Great videoing Lori and review joe as always you two!

  12. Thank you for another great video. I really love the look of this vehicle! I think it is about the nicest electric vehicle I have seen.

  13. Come on Volvo! The Hyundai Kona electric gives you heated & vented seats. Major zonk at this price point.
