Chevrolet Adds a Third EV to Lineup
NEW YORK – Chevrolet will add a third electric vehicle its lineup, the 2024 Equinox EV.
The affordable SUV is designed to make a more comfortable EV transition for modern families, the automaker said in a press release Thursday. It will join the previously announced Silverado and Blazer EVs.
Mary Barra, chairwoman and CEO of General Motors, said the Equinox EV will be a big step toward making electric vehicles the mainstream choice for the next generation.
“With the flexibility of GM’s Ultium Platform, we are bringing to market vehicles at nearly every price point and for every purpose,” she said.
The starting price on the vehicle for the 1LT version will be around $30,000, making it likely the most affordable EV in its compact SUV class, according to the news release.
GM estimates the Equinox EV will get up to 300 miles of range on a full charge.
“Chevrolet is now positioned to offer a wide array of EVs,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet. “We know truck and SUV customers better than anyone and we’ve channeled that insight and experience into our new EVs.”
An array of vehicle technologies will also be included, the automaker said. Technologies include Ultium-based propulsion technologies, a large infotainment screen, driver assistance technologies and available Super Cruise for hands-free driver assistance on compatible roads.
“The Equinox EV is an EV for everyone,” said Bell. “It’s an affordable game-changer, offering an uncompromising experience, with more features, that won’t change your daily routine — except that you will no longer have to stop at the gas station.”
