As the second Chevrolet electric vehicle to ride on the GM BEV3 platform – the first being the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV – the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will boast a starting price of roughly $30,000 for the base 1LT trim level. Featuring GM Ultium battery and Ultium Drive motor technologies, the Equinox EV will launch after the larger Blazer EV, which itself is set to go on sale in Spring 2023.
At launch, only the sporty 2RS trim level will be available, while the 1LT, 2LT, 3LT and 3RS trims are expected to follow later in the 2024 calendar year. All trim levels will be available in an eAWD configuration, with maximum range measured at 300 miles in FWD configurations. As for output, FWD models will produce 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque, while eAWD models will produce 290 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.
Production of the first-generation Chevrolet Equinox EV will take place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
