The all-new 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV is an affordable all-electric SUV designed to support modern families in making a simple, secure, and uncompromising transition to an EV, after the introductions of the Chevrolet Silverado EV and Blazer EV this year.

Suitable for everyone who wants to switch to an EV
“We are at a turning point where EVs will be the mainstream choice for the next generation of customers and Equinox EV will lead this charge for us. With the flexibility of GM’s Ultium Platform, we are bringing to market vehicles at nearly every price point and for every purpose.” said Mary Barra, Chair and CEO of General Motors.
The Equinox EV, slated to be the cheapest EV in its class, plugs Chevrolet into the crucial small SUV category with a starting price of roughly $30,000. It completes a lineup of electric vehicles that includes full-size pickups (Silverado EV), medium SUVs (Blazer EV), and compact SUVs (Bolt EV and Bolt EUV). Additionally, GM estimates that it will have a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge.
“Chevrolet is now positioned to offer a wide array of EVs. We know truck and SUV customers better than anyone and we’ve channeled that insight and experience into our new EVs.” said Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet.
With the Equinox EV, designers and engineers concentrated on the features that made the gas-powered Equinox second in sales to the Silverado and enhanced them with expressive design, electrifying capabilities, and simple EV technology. These features included style, spaciousness, safety, and value.
Compared to the current Equinox, features include a large infotainment screen, a substantial selection of standard and available driver assistance technologies, and available Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology for compatible roads. Ultium-based propulsion technologies are also included.
Chevrolet Equinox design features
The expressive design of the Equinox EV gives it an immediately identifiable SUV look that is sporty, aggressive, and imposing. LT and RS, two unique personalities, are available in a variety of trim levels, drivetrain choices, and ranges.
Highlights consist of:
- Sporty proportions and sleek lines are made possible by the Ultium Platform.
- Innovative walk-up lighting is offered on mid- and top-level LT and RS trims, with front and rear lighting animation as standard features and a special light bar as an option.
- depending on the specification, 20- and 21-inch wheels are available in addition to the standard 19-inch wheels.
- When the available presence-based liftgate detects the key fob is close to the rear of the car, it can open hands-free.
- The available black roof on RS and two-tone white roof on LT
Five passengers can fit within the sleek, contemporary cabin, which also has a sophisticated infotainment system and customizable ambient lighting. Additionally, it offers a roomy interior with several storage options from front to back and a maximum load space of 57 cubic feet (1,614 liters) when the back seat is folded.
A heated steering wheel, heated front and rear outboard seats, and even a heated windshield wiper park function, which helps prevent ice accumulation around the wipers, are offered for comfort and convenience.
Comfortable use with top EV tech
With tools like accessible navigation and route planning via the MyChevy app, which helps identify and calculate routes to charging stations, Chevrolet is dedicated to making the move to EVs smooth.
Additionally, customers have access to Ultium Charge 360, General Motors’ comprehensive strategy for EV charging, which provides information on and access to more than 110,000 publicly accessible charging stations in the United States and Canada and is intended to make the entire charging experience simpler.
Families place high importance on safety, and the Chevrolet Equinox EV delivers with a long list of standard features, including:
- Chevy Safety Assist, which includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and IntelliBeam automatic high beams
- Rear Park Assist
- Reverse Automatic Braking
- Safety Alert Seat
- Rear Cross Traffic Braking
- Blind Zone Steering Assist
Adaptive Cruise Control, HD Surround Vision, a Head-Up Display, and a Rear Camera Mirror are among the driver aid technologies that are now available.
Also available is Super Cruise, the first truly hands-free driving assistance system on the market. It enables hands-free driving on more than 400,000 miles of compatible roadways in the United States and Canada.
Capable and powerful
A 290-horsepower and 346-lb-ft torque electric all-wheel-drive system is optional, while the normal front-wheel-drive system provides rapid acceleration and an enjoyable driving experience for daily activities.
The Equinox EV can accelerate and slow down to a complete stop using just the accelerator thanks to one-pedal driving, which is a standard feature. It is combined with regenerative braking, which may increase the driving range by converting the kinetic energy of the vehicle’s forward movement into electricity that is stored in the battery pack.
Additionally, the Equinox EV has the most recent charging technology:
- According to estimations from GM, standard 11.5 kW Level 2 (AC) charging may increase range by up to 34 miles per hour.
- GM believes that the 3RS eAWD can add up to 51 miles of range per hour of charging at 19.2 kW Level 2 (AC) charging.
- GM believes that a standard DC fast-charging capability of up to 150 kW may provide around 70 miles of range in 10 minutes.
Available starting in Autumn
The Equinox EV provides fleet clients the advantages of zero-emission driving, no gas stops, and the chance for decreased maintenance, much like the new Blazer EV and Silverado EV.
Beginning with a limited edition 2RS, the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will be offered beginning in the autumn of 2023. As manufacturing begins, further information, including ordering details, will become available.
Chevrolet Equinox price starts at $30,000.
