When you drive around Stanleytown, Danville, Rocky Mount, or Greensboro, it’s hard to imagine you won’t come across at least one Chevrolet Equinox. However, until the fall of 2023, you won’t see one that has much too in common with the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV apart from the name. The Equinox EV is a zero-emission, fully-electric compact crossover SUV for the 2024 model year. The 2024 Equinox EV will be an exciting model for the brand and anyone interested in an affordable electric vehicle that could easily be their first step into emissions-fee electric mobility.
It’s fair to say that the exterior styling of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV nods in the direction of the gas-powered model with the same name, but no more than that. The exterior proportions are in the same ballpark, but the Equinox EV looks sleeker, sportier, and more contemporary than its namesake from any angle. It can appear slightly elongated from the side, but the high-riding SUV style dampens any strong comparison with a station wagon. There are available front and rear lightbars that shoppers will likely favor that emphasize the futuristic aesthetic and nature of the Equinox EV. However, the overall look is one of a modern and stylish SUV instead of the somewhat quirky sci-fi creations that some automakers appear to think people want.
We’re still some way away from the main talking points about any new electric vehicle (EV) not being what it’s powered by and the practicality of its all-electric propulsion system, especially when it’s one with a name as familiar as Equinox. Complete details and specifications will be revealed later. Still, you can sign up with GR Chevrolet immediately for notification of when Equinox EV reservations open, so you’ll be among the first to hear.
We know there will be single-motor front-drive entry models and more performance-orientated dual-motor AWD versions of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV. However, the exact battery sizes and which version of GM’s electric propulsion system will power the Equinox EV must be confirmed. The base 1LT variant will have a driving range of around 250 miles on a single charge, while the 2LT is likely to be a more popular option with a bigger battery and a range of approximately 300 miles.
Single-motor front-drive version of the all-new 2024 Equinox EV models will develop a healthy 210 horsepower and 242 lb.-ft. of torque. The Equinox EV will also come with single-pedal driving and a regenerative braking system that will bring the Equinox EV to a stop without needing to press the brake pedal. DC fast-charging at up to 150 kW will be available so that you can add up to 70 miles of charge in as little as 10 minutes. Using a Level 2 charger, a standard 11.5-kW AC onboard charger lets you add up to 34 miles of range per hour of charging time.
If you opt for the top-of-the-range 3RS AWD version of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV, you’ll benefit from a 19.2-kW system that will allow up to add 51 miles of range per hour of recharging at Level 2. GM has also confirmed that batteries will be guaranteed for up to eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
