At CES 2022, GM introduced electric versions of the Chevrolet Equinox crossover SUV and the Chevrolet Blazer SUV. GM CEO Mary Barra said that the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV and Blazer EV will be introduced sometime in 2023 during her keynote speech at CES 2022.
The launches of the Equinox EV and Blazer EV, together with the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV, are critical components of GM's electric-car plan for 2023. GM's Ultium EV architecture will underpin both the Chevrolet Blazer EV and the Chevrolet Equinox EV. As a result, the Equinox EV will be a completely new vehicle. The new EV is marketed as a cost-effective and small SUV. The MSRP is expected to be approximately $30,000 when it goes on sale.
The Cadillac Lyriq, GMC Hummer EV, and the aforementioned electric Silverado will all have Ultium. GM promises a range of more than 300 miles in those cars, with up to 400 miles in the trucks, however, the smaller Equinox and Blazer will likely get between 250 and 300 miles per charge.
Chevrolet's electric crossovers will compete with the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which has a range of 224 miles on the low end and 314 miles on the high end.
Along with the announcement, a few renderings of the Equinox EV were provided, giving a sneak peek at the upcoming vehicle. The 2024 Equinox and Blazer EVs will complement GM's existing EV offering, which includes the Chevrolet Bolt, Bolt EUV, and others. The technical specifications have not yet been provided. It was also confirmed that both fleet and retail variants, as well as LT and RS trim levels, will be offered.
