With up to 300 miles of range and a starting price around $30,000, the new 2024 Chevy Equinox wants to be the EV for everyone.
After first teasing the new Equinox at this January’s CES show, the all-new 2024 Chevy Equinox takes the award-winning GM Ultium EV platform and puts it under a five-passenger crossover SUV that’s aimed squarely at the heart of the US car market. And, with a $30K price tag, it seemed remarkably well-aimed!
“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,” said Mary Barra, Chair and CEO of General Motors. “With the flexibility of GM’s Ultium Platform, we are bringing to market vehicles at nearly every price point and for every purpose.”
The Equinox SUV joins a growing lineup of electric products from GM, now including the Chevy Bolt, Blazer, and Silverado EVs, as well as the Cadillac LYRIQ and GMC Hummer EV (so far). While most of those are premium offerings (yes, the Bolt is a premium subcompact hatchback), the Equinox is very “middle of the road,” and is expected to be a normal, volume-leading car.
“The Equinox EV is an EV for everyone,” says Scott Bell, VP of Chevrolet. “It’s an affordable game-changer, offering an uncompromising experience, with more features, that won’t change your daily routine — except that you will no longer have to stop at the gas station.”
As for the vehicle itself, the new 2024 Chevy Equinox offers a standard, front-wheel-drive electric power train with a GM-estimated 210 HP and 242 lb-ft of TQ for quick acceleration and, “a fun driving experience for everyday tasks.” An available 290 HP eAWD system will also be available on higher-end models, and deliver an even more thrilling experience behind the wheel.
The Equinox is expected to deliver 300 miles of range, with standard DC fast-charging capability of up to 150 kW on every model (which enables approximately 70 miles of range to be added in 10 minutes, per GM estimates).
