Chevrolet did not attend the event 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in person this year, but the American automaker has announced some of its electric vehicles. Besides the new Silverado 2023 electric EV, GM CEO Mary Barra presented the upcoming Chevrolet branded EVs. Mary announced that the Chevrolet Equinox (in the photo) and the Chevrolet Blazer will be fully electric in 2023, arriving as 2024 model vehicles.
“Equinox has always played an important role for Chevrolet as the second biggest selling brand,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet. “Providing an affordable EV option in the highest volume segment of the industry proves that Chevrolet will make EVs available to everyone.”
Chevrolet says the Equinox EV will leverage the scalable Ultium platform, which underpins models ranging from the Cadillac Lyriq to the GMC Hummer EV. When it goes on sale in Fall 2023, the Equinox EV will offer retail and fleet versions in LT and RS finishes.
No range or performance estimates have been provided, but Chevrolet says the Equinox EV will start at around $$ 30,000, making it much cheaper than existing options from Ford, Hyundai, Kia and Volkswagen.
Along with the announcement, Chevrolet shared several images showing us what the new Equinox EV will look like. The rendered images show a much more exciting design than the existing Equinox, with futuristic lights, a more coupe-like shape and a premium interior with huge screens. Inside, the Equinox features the green light at the top of the steering wheel, indicating that it will come with SuperCruise hands-free driving technology.
