The 2024 Equinox EV: Everything We Know
Fans of Chevrolet vehicles are likely aware of the hype surrounding the Equinox. This stylish compact SUV has a spacious cabin and plenty of cargo space, making it easy to pack everything you need for your adventures. Additionally, the engine has enough power to help you and your crew tackle the toughest of terrains. Equinox drivers also appreciate the various comfort and convenience features that reveal the softer side of this rugged vehicle.
If you thought the Equinox couldn’t get any better, think again. Chevrolet announced that it will be releasing the brand-new Equinox EV in 2024. This electric version of Chevy’s top-selling SUV is the talk of the town, and we’re just as excited to know more about it as you are. While details from Chevrolet are still limited, we’ve compiled a list of what we know about the 2024 Equinox EV so far. Read on for a complete guide from Allen Turner Chevrolet.
It Will Be Affordable
As one of the most affordable brands on the market, Chevrolet strives to make its vehicles accessible to everyone. This commitment extends to its electric vehicles, including the 2024 Equinox EV. The MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) for the LT is around $30,000, which is almost unheard of for an electric vehicle.
This SUV might lack the abundant horsepower and speedy acceleration other electric vehicles have, but it’s more than enough to get you from point A to point B. Many drivers will find the significantly lower price point to be worth the lack of flare we see from competitors. Prices currently aren’t available for other trim levels, but seeing as the LT is the trim level above the LS and L with most Chevy models, your 2024 Equinox EV might be even more affordable than the $30,000 MSRP if you forgo a trim with more advanced features.
There Will Be Multiple Trim Levels
Not surprisingly, the 2024 Equinox EV will be available in multiple trim levels to cater to consumer preferences. One trim level we know of for sure is the LT, which has a starting MSRP of around $30,000 and no set lease date. While we don’t have specific details about the 2024 Equinox EV LT, you can expect it to have similar features as the gas-powered lT. Highlights include Chevrolet Safety Assist, a power driver seat with driver lumbar, a multi-color driver information center display, and LED daytime running lights.
Another guaranteed trim level is the RT. Chevrolet hasn’t announced an estimated MSRP for this sporty trim level, but we know it’s supposed to become available in the fall of 2023. Like the electric LT, the electric RT will probably have features similar to those of its gas-powered counterpart. Key features include 19-inch aluminum wheels, gloss-black side rails, and bold interior seating with red accents.
It Will Leverage GM’s Ultium Platform
General Motors (GM) uses an innovative Ultium platform to power many of its electric vehicles. While Ultium isn’t available with the Bolt EV or Bolt EUV models, it will make an appearance on the 2024 Equinox EV. This platform is built on a flexible battery architecture and provides a thrilling driving experience. By enabling 50/50 weight distribution and facilitating a lower center of gravity, it results in unmatched responsiveness. Ultium also helps facilitate decent acceleration speeds while ensuring you can enjoy a quiet ride.
Additionally, Ultium makes it easy to go the distance. While there is currently no specified range for the 2024 Equinox EV, we can expect its charge to provide enough mileage for commutes and even weekend road trips. In any case, you’ll be able to keep the battery charged thanks to a wide network of charging stations that are compatible with Chevrolet connectors.
The Interior Features Popular Designs With Unique Twists
Information about this model’s interior is still limited, but pictures show that the 2024 Equinox EV will have a familiar feel. The digital dashboard looks strikingly similar to the one in the latest Silverado EV. The Equinox EV also appears to draw inspiration from the Bolt EV hatchback and Bolt EUV crossover in terms of styling themes.
It Comes From a Reliable Manufacturer
It’s natural to have doubts about Chevrolet’s ability to electrify a beloved SUV. However, one look at the manufacturer’s history with electric vehicles should reassure you. GM, Chevrolet’s parent company, released the first electric car in 1996. Over the years, GM and Chevrolet have continued to refine their technology to produce efficient electric vehicles that are accessible to consumers. The success of models like the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV has resulted in this most recent rollout of electric vehicles. With all of Chevrolet’s experience, many consumers are hopeful that the Equinox, Silverado, and Blazer EVs will exceed their expectations.
