GM is stepping into the all-electric vehicle space with a wide variety of new models across its various brands, including a new small Cadillac EV crossover and the new Chevy Equinox EV. Now, we’re comparing the upcoming Cadillac EV with the new Chevy Equinox EV in terms of exterior styling.
Before we get into the comparison, we should first provide a little background information. As GM Authority reported in March, The General is currently developing a new small Cadillac EV crossover that’s set to slot in under the Cadillac Lyriq with regard to the brand’s all-electric product portfolio. Sizing is expected to be similar to that of the current Cadillac XT4.
Meanwhile, GM has also revealed the new Chevy Equinox EV, pulling the sheets at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show this past January. Like the aforementioned small Cadillac EV crossover, the Chevy Equinox EV is also a small crossover, and is set to enter production in the Fall of the 2023 calendar year.
Although GM has yet to reveal the as-of-yet-unnamed small Cadillac EV crossover, our spy photographers have captured it out on the road testing in prototype form. As seen in the photos, the prototype is draped in black-and-white camouflage, but still provides a decent look at the overall design and shape of the vehicle.
Placing these two models side-by-side, we find that the small Cadillac EV crossover looks very similar to the Chevy Equinox EV. The sheetmetal will likely differ, but the front-door window frame looks nearly identical, while the dash-to-axle ratio is also quite similar. Notably, the Cadillac seems to have narrower rear doors and a chunkier rear pillar.
To note, it’s likely that both models will ride on the GM BEV3 platform, a skateboard-type architecture that underpins a variety of new GM electric vehicles, including the new Cadillac Lyriq, Cruise Origin, and Cadillac Celestiq, among others. The platform will also underpin new EVs from Buick, as well as additional Chevy vehicles beyond the new Equinox EV.
Furthermore, we should mention that both the small Cadillac EV crossover and the Chevy Equinox EV are rumored to be set for production in Mexico.
