Chevrolet has presented the Equinox EV, an electric compact SUV that will be available from autumn 2023 starting from around $30,000. The vehicle is the third Chevrolet model based on the Ultium platform from parent company General Motors, following the Blazer EV and Silverado EV.
The Equinox EV will be offered with a choice of front- or all-wheel drive, expected to produce around 157 kW and 216 kW, respectively. The ranges are given as 250 to 300 miles (400 to 480 km), depending on the version. Equinox EV production will occur at General Motors’ plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, similarly to its sister model , the Blazer EV. The facility in Detroit is currently still focused on the production of the Hummer EV and Silverado EV.
The Chevrolet Equinox EV 2024 will be available from fall 2023, initially launching as a limited edition variant. According to the manufacturer, further details and ordering information will be announced shortly before the start of production. What we do know now, is that the Equinox will be available in two variants, LT and RS, which will be offered with “several trims, drive configurations and range options”.
Chevrolet is also providing buyers of the Equinox EV with access to their Ultium Charge 360 network, which has access to over 110,000 public charging points across the U.S. and Canada.
“We are at a turning point where EVs will be the mainstream choice for the next generation of customers and Equinox EV will lead this charge for us,” said Mary Barra, Chair and CEO of General Motors. “With the flexibility of GM’s Ultium Platform, we are bringing to market vehicles at nearly every price point and for every purpose.” Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet, adds: “Chevrolet is now positioned to offer a wide array of EVs. We know truck and SUV customers better than anyone and we’ve channeled that insight and experience into our new EVs.”
