The automaker has already announced an electric version of its Equinox and Blazer SUVs will arrive in the next few years
The Equinox EV should have a base price of $30,000 in the US
The RS version will arrive in the fall of 2023
The automaker announced back in January that it would introduce an EV version of the Blazer and the Equinox compact SUVs in the next few years.
After having shown images of the upcoming models, Chevrolet has teased the Equinox EV yet again, this time in a video.
This video gives a good impression of the vehicle’s overall style, which will be more hatchback-like than the current Equinox. The new model will also feature LED light bars in the front and in the rear with headlamps mounted lower in the bumper.
The two lightbars will feature a sequential design that will make the front one light up from the outside-in and the rear one from the inside-out.
The charge port for the battery will be located in front of the driver’s door and the door handles will be flush mounted to improve aerodynamics.
Another interesting detail is the availability of two-tone colour schemes, as shown in the teaser, where an Equinox EV painted in bright blue with a white roof and side mirrors is displayed.
This model is expected to be available in two versions, the entry-level LT and the sportier RS. The LT should have a base price of only $30,000 in the United States, which would make it one of the cheapest EVs available. This is interesting, however only the RS model will be available at launch in the fall of 2023, since the company will prioritise the more expensive models.
The Equinox EV will be built on General Motors’ Ultium platform, meaning that it should be able to have a range of 300 miles (483 kilometers). This is substantiated by earlier images that showed the instrument cluster displaying a range of 235 miles (378 kilometers) with a battery charged only to 75%.
