Chevy Blazer EV And Equinox EV Crossovers To Arrive In 202350
General Motors has announced a wealth of new all-electric vehicles in conjunction with the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including the new Chevy Blazer EV and Chevy Equinox EV. Both electrified crossovers are slated to launch for the 2023 calendar year.
Complete official details on the new crossovers are still forthcoming, but at this point, we do know that both the Chevy Blazer EV And Chevy Equinox EV will be based on GM’s BEV3 architecture and will utilize GM’s proprietary Ultium technology. We also know that the Chevy Equinox will be offered in LT and performance-flavored RS trim levels, with fleet and retail versions both slated for release. What’s more, the Chevy Equinox EV will be priced around the $30,000 mark, while the larger Chevy Blazer EV will likely be more expensive.
Either way, both crossovers will launch for the 2023 calendar year, expanding GM’s all-electric product portfolio with further offerings in the industry’s two largest segments.
General Motors has provided images of the new Chevy Equinox EV with regard to the exterior and interior designs, while images of the Chevy Blazer EV are still forthcoming. The former features a sleek new look with thin lighting elements and a streamlined silhouette, while concept images of the Equinox EV cabin feature a wide digital screen on the dash and a telltale green stripe on the steering wheel indicating the presence of GM’s Super Cruise technology.
General Motors has stated that it will launch a total of 30 new EV models globally by 2025 as it transitions to all-electric powertrains and promotes the mass-adoption of EV passenger vehicles. The new GM EVs will feature General Motors’ proprietary Ultium battery technology and Ultium drive motor technology, as well as new EV-centric architectures like BEV3 and BT1. General Motors also recently opened its first EV-focused production facility with the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan, previously known as Detroit-Hamtramck.

I guess one of these must be the as-yet unidentified vehicle in the right corner of that photo of GM EVs at the 2021 CES (the picture with Michael Simcoe standing in front). They have that light that runs the entire width of the grille.
Good call, I think you’re right.
One good thing, finally the death of the fish mouth grill! Hooray gm!
The Equinox concept almost looks like a VW MEB-based crossover with the way the A Pillar flows and door-placed side mirror.
actually looks like they have taken the design cues off the incredibly successful Buick Envision
Yeah, I even see something European like a larger Opel Corsa. The rear lighting elements are spot on and the design looks more upmarket than the average Chevrolet.
In general this Nox isn’t terrible but looks nothing like a Nox. Right now, the EV transition, will define Somcoe’s design reputation at GM.
Surprised at the cadence of EV reveals. The Blazer looks to be squared at the Mach E.
They haven’t shown the Blazer EV yet. Just different versions of the Equinox EV.
I agreed with you…until now. The second image in this article—the one with the two silver models—the Equinox is in the foreground and the other in the back? That other is definitely a larger vehicle. Focus on the rear door’s fixed window. It’s quite a bit wider. And that rear end is a bit different too. Granted, it’s not the greatest photo, but I do believe that’s a Blazer. And it really doesn’t differ too greatly from the current Blazer, not near the difference from the current Equinox versus the Equinox EV.
I like this from what I see so far. Hopefully it has a zippy powertrain too. Doesn’t need to be legit fast, but 0-60 in 5-5.5 with awd and a good price would be a great start. Add 300-350 mile range and we may look into it when it’s available in 2 years.
I agree Mike. 5 Seconds is quick and “most drivers” don’t need to ever floor it from a stand still.
From my understanding towing significantly impacts range with the Rivian. We’re talking stops every 90 minutes while hauling a trailer with a car in it. I don’t see full adoption of EV’s until charging networks, time to charge, and overall range evolve more. That said I could see about 25% of 2 car households adopting 1 EV in the next 5-7 years.
You forgot same quick charge of 100miles in 10 minutes like the truck…than almost the perfect smaller SUV I have been waiting for…now GM now…move it in.
Yes the truck will do at least 400 and add a ten min charge you can so just over 500 miles.
It seems like if the next gen equinox is gonna be Envision/XT4 sized.
Finally something new from GM. First thoughts, am I the only one having trouble distinguishing the Equinox from the Blazer? It might not be a bad idea to create consistency, but it’s hard to tell apart. Also, I can’t see the Equinox shifter. It’s not on the center console like the GMC Terrain. It’s either on the stalk or it’s that peculiar double 00 button. Wish range and the charging curve was revealed because that’s the most important part. Also, a little worried about the “around 30,000” remark. If it’s priced over $35kUSD it may have trouble selling.
Nice pics. So far so good.
Edit: OK the gear shifter is definitely the right stalk. The “double 00 button” is actually two usb ports. LOL, my eyes.
All the images above are for the Equinox – red is the RS edition. Blazer EV has not been shown yet.
Then I feel much better. I misunderstood and thought the exterior images was of the Blazer & Equinox whereas the interior was Equinox only. My fault.
I have a loaner Edge and the list is 45k.
You’re pricing is not in touch with reality.
The Ford Edge base price is 35k. The current Equinox starts at 25k, which is the same price as the Ford Escape. Even the Blazer is 7k cheaper than the Edge. Chevrolet must keep its prices as close as possible to its gasoline counterparts. Anything else will be perceived by consumers as a price hike.
Made in Mexico?
assembled somewhere – the parts are from all over, but total content has to be in line with the new NAFTA regulations
Or Fairfax or Lansing Grand River. If it were to be be built in Mexico, Equinox and/or Blazer gasoline models would be displaced.
Parts will be from all over but built at GM’s Factory Zero, which is based in the US.
Bev 3 platform is almost finish facilities and suppliers in mexico, almost ready to enter production,
The Equinox EV looks like a nice, compelling vehicle.
1) will it be FWD based (I’m assuming it will)?
2) where will it be sourced and built?
EVs are an abomination, change is never a good thing, and I hope lower case gm goes out of business…soon.
Not a chance, pinecone.
I can almost read this same type of comment by the late 1800s. “An explosive liquid propelled wagon?, nah, Change is never good, You’ll never take my horse away”. Respectfully.
We changed from the horse to cars. That one was pretty good.
Yay…more EV 💩
GM needs to satsify their customers of their second EV failed attempt. Still waiting over four months for my ’21 Bolt buy back. BARA BUY BACK BOLT BETTER.
Winner Winner chicken dinner? Hope so. Looks like EV’s are going to be rammed down our throats.
Why is GM not taking the middle way with hybrid vehicles?
And not having the issue with range…..
Will there be a gas powered Equinox also?
Yes. In 2024
Nice looking EV Equinox, nice interior, nice price…. And absolutely wonderful that’s it’s assembled for the most part in Detroit Michigan…It’s about time we made cars in The USA again. I know I know the parts are from all over the world but it’s a breath of fresh air to see Union workers getting payed to put this vehicle together! 👍👍
Union workers are part of why cars are so expensive. That’s one of the bad parts of unions. I wouldn’t be surprised if cars could be 1-2 thousand dollars less if it weren’t for having to pay higher priced union workers. Not saying they’re bad, but they definitely have better effects at some occupations more than others.
Last decade comment. Now Taco Bell workers make nearly as much as newer assembly line workers. Days of scads of workers doing any job so you can buy something cheap are likely over
Then why are Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Kia, Hyundai cars so expensive Paulie?? These companies are NON-UNION and there cars are not much cheaper if cheaper at all even Hyundai and Kia cars are getting expensive! I AM PRO UNION THANK YOU.
wow looks like GM wants to finally make chevy look first class!not cheap, the current equinox just looks awkward and cheap.
love the new look. This may be just enough to get me to buy GM again after trading my SRX in for a nissan murano .love the nissan but it too feels alittle cheap
Transitions to all electric power trains….dumb. They seem to have bought into dementia Joe’s green world, hook, line, and sinker.
Name-calling is cruel and speaks to a person’s character.
David I feel the same way Nissan used to build great cars with nice interiors but ever since they got into financial trouble it seems like they are a little cheaper. And Chevy should be first instead of making the equinox then making the terrain have a better interior.
Just curious are they eliminating the ICE version of both vehicles or going to sell both at the same time?
No for now the ICE version of the equinox and terrain will still be offered I have not read or hered anything about the ICE models going away
Love the styling
