Can You Live with the 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge?

Can New Fuel Pull Carbon Dioxide from the Air? Road Test: 2022 Chevrolet Equinox; Should you buy a new hybrid or plug-in hybrid to stave off higher fuel prices?

As more and more people consider switching from conventional vehicles to EVs, we wanted to see what it would be like to live with one of the most-appealing EVs out there. So we borrowed a 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge and put it through a rigorous list of tasks for a week. The XC40 Recharge is Volvo’s leader in its quest to become an all-electric carmaker by 2035. The big question: is: can the average American adapt to the new lifestyle that a leading-edge EV like the XC40 Recharge requires? We’ll tell you the good and the bad of both the vehicle itself and the EV lifestyle in our special report.

In the news segment, we discuss exciting development in the innovative quest to create climate-friendly fuels. One fuel we discovered is said to be created from carbon dioxide pulled from the atmosphere, resulting in a closed loop that doesn’t add incremental carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Instead, with this potential gamechanger, it’s carbon out and carbon in. Will this breakthrough doom electric cars? Host Jack Nerad and Co-Host Chris Teague will discuss this fascinating development.

Also in the news segment, Jack Nerad outlines his recent analysis of whether buying a hybrid or plug-in hybrid is a good answer to the nation’s rapidly rising fuel prices. We’ll reveal what he discovered.

In the road test segment, Co-Host Chris Teague takes a long look at a very popular compact SUV, the 2022 Chevy Equinox. It’s a vehicle that doesn’t get much love from car testers, but it’s also a vehicle you and your family might cherish. Teague will give us his conclusions.

And we have a terrific guest. Phillip Battista is president of dealership technologies at J.D. Power, and he and his team have just launched Shop With Ease. It’s a digital auto retailing solution that allows shoppers the ability to search, purchase, and finance vehicles without having to leave the dealer’s or manufacturer’s website. It could help you buy your next car painlessly and swiftly.

All this and more coming up this week on America on the Road.
