Among other high-end electric SUVs, the Volvo C40 Recharge is among the least popular electric cars.

How does it compare to the rivals? The C40 is superior to one of its rivals for four reasons.

The horsepower of a vehicle has an impact on how quickly a car accelerates.

On the other hand, torque affects acceleration by transferring power from the engine to the wheels.

For race automobiles, greater horsepower means more power and faster acceleration.

How do the Volvo C40 Recharge and the Polestar 2 respond to the two parameters?

The C40 Recharge has 402 horsepower and 486 lb-ft of torque compared to the Polestar 2's 231 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque.

The C40 Recharge outperforms the Polestar 2 in terms of horsepower and torque.

All C40 Recharge trims come standard with AWD, while Polestar 2 trims come standard with front-wheel drive and offer AWD as an option.

With AWD, more power and torque, and more cargo, even with a slight high MSRP, the C40 Recharge  is more of a better EV than the Polestar 2
