General Motors (GM) have revealed that Chevrolet will expand its electric vehicle (EV) lineup in autumn 2023. This will include the Equinox EV that was launched recently at the CES Show in Las Vegas.
The new Equinox EV is an affordable yet functional compact electric sports utility vehicle (SUV). Specific details haven’t been revealed yet but best of all this slick looker will have an estimated price of around $30,000 in the US. This could be a real game changer in helping motorists in the US transition to driving electric cars.
The Equinox EV, which will be launched with both fleet and retail versions, including LT and RS trims, will use GM’s Ultium electric vehicle platform.
Steve Hill, Chevrolet vice president, said: “The Equinox has always played an important role for Chevrolet as the second-highest selling brand nameplate.
“Providing an affordable EV option in the industry’s highest volume segment proves Chevy is going to make EVs available to everyone.”
The announcement of the Equinox EV comes on the heels of Chevy’s reveal of the 2024 Silverado EV and confirmation of the Blazer EV SUV, which will be available in spring 2023.
GM are moving towards electric vehicles in a big way and will offer 30 all-electric models globally by 2025. They plan to invest $35 billion in autonomous and electric vehicles (EVs) through 2025 and have even created their own new motors for this.
