Is GM Working on an EV Version of the Chevrolet Equinox?

The extremely popular Chevrolet Equinox would certainly make it as a mainstream electric SUV


  • Official-like renderings seem to indicate that this will be the case.

  • GM is fully invested in bringing loads of EVs to the masses.


The current 3rd generation of the Chevrolet Equinox dates back to 2018 and has been updated for the 2022 model year. As part of the changes, the Equinox will no longer be available with more powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, leaving only the turbo-boosted 1.5-litre mill. Has GM done this in order to make room for an electrically powered one?

There’s nothing else to go on for this news story. The images, shared by BurlappCar, show what is without a doubt a Chevrolet Equinox with some visual modifications. The most notable, other than the ugly aero-wheels, is the revised front fascia which looks like a cross between the 2022 Equinox and the 2022 Bolt. The roof also incorporates what could only be described as air intakes. Could they be designed to cool a battery?

GM has announced that they plan to go full-EV by 2035 and that they will launch many new models in the next few years alone. Familiarity can be an important factor in creating interest and demand which is how an electric Equinox would make sense.
