Few details of the proposed new EVs have been offered. The Equinox EV will be built on GM’s Ultium Platform, and will be offered in both fleet and retail versions, including LT and RS trims. It will have a starting price around $30,000 in the US.
Both SUVs are expected to go on sale in 2023. And that’s about it for now, folks.
“The Equinox has always played an important role for Chevrolet as the second-highest selling brand nameplate,” said Chevrolet VP Steve Hill. “Providing an affordable EV option in the industry’s highest-volume segment proves Chevy is going to make EVs available to everyone.”
