Chevrolet Introduces Gorgeous Equinox EV: $30,000 Crossover/SUV
Chevrolet has officially announced an all-new electric car based on the Ultium: the Chevrolet Equinox EVwhich will launch in the United States in the fall of 2023.
The manufacturer describes the Equinox EV as “an affordable and functional compact SUV,” confirming that it will start at an estimated MSRP of around $30,000.
That sounds exceptional, given the potential capabilities of the Ultium platform and the very appealing design of this crossover/SUV.

Chevrolet adds that there will be both fleet and retail versions and the new model will include two trim levels: LT and RS.
The RS is shown in the images in red. We assume that the silver one is then LT. It is very likely that the RS will be significantly more expensive than the entry-level version but will also offer better performance.
The interior of the Chevrolet Equinox EV is also quite interesting, with a large infotainment screen and a simple design.
The instrument cluster shows about 235 miles (378 km) of range at about 3/4 state of charge, suggesting the total range could be over 300 miles (483 km).
Steve Hill, Vice President of Chevrolet, said:
“The Equinox has always played an important role for Chevrolet as the second best-selling brand nameplate. Providing an affordable EV option in the highest volume segment of the industry proves that Chevy is going to make EVs accessible to everyone.
Given the current Chevrolet Bolt EV/EUV prices (both with an MSRP over $30,000 and temporarily out of production due to the battery recall), the new Chevrolet Equinox EV could be a very good value proposition. :
|Model||base price||Destination Load||Tax credit||effective price|
|2022 Chevrolet Bolt Electric||$31,000||+$995||N / A||$31,995|
|2022 Chevrolet Bolt VUE||$33,000||+$995||N / A||$33,995|
The Chevrolet Equinox EV will follow a few other recently announced models – the Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup and the Chevrolet Blazer EV SUV (Spring 2023).
