The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV gets its big reveal today, hitting the Internet just a week before the Detroit Auto Show. We’re only a few months on from Chevy revealing the Blazer EV, and for folks wishing for something affordable, the Equinox EV is going to look a fair bit more tantalizing.

GM is detailing a number of vital specs for every motor, battery and trim configuration today, but it’s only providing a price estimate for the base 1LT model, telling us that it will start “around $30,000.” For that price, you’ll get a single-motor front-wheel-drive Equinox EV that produces 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with the base (smallest) battery pack, and Chevy estimates a 250-mile range on a full charge. We don’t know how much the upcharge will be yet, but you can pair the 1LT with the big battery pack for 300 miles of range. You can also spec it with all-wheel drive, which automatically tacks on the big battery, leading to a range estimate of 280 miles. The 1LT eAWD (and every all-wheel-drive Equinox) comes with a dual-motor setup that results in a combined output of 290 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque.


It’s not abundantly obvious in photos, but the Equinox EV is a fair bit bigger than the regular, gas-powered Equinox. Chevy says the EV is 7.4 inches longer and 2.8 inches wider. The 9.0-inch longer wheelbase and 1.9-inch reduction in height really help the Equinox EV’s proportions, too. Cargo space maxes out at 57.2 cubic-feet, which is nearly 7 cubic-feet less than the gasoline Equinox, a compromise for design. Just like the Blazer EV, there is no frunk — Chevy uses the space for the front drive unit and other electronics instead.

Styling varies widely between trims. The base 1LT in gray is subdued and melts into the background, while the RS (in white) and 3LT (in blue above) both pop with far more flare and look-at-me attitude. Every trim gets a distinctive wrap-around LED taillight, but only upper trims enjoy the full-width front DRL. Wheel sizes range from 19- to 21-inch options.
