Chevrolet to bring battery-electric versions of Equinox and Blazer in 2023


At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show, Chevrolet unveiled the Equinox EV. He also confirmed the arrival of a Blazer EV. Both are set to debut in 2023.

EV additions bolster Chevrolet’s upcoming electric options, continue to build a more sustainable and achievable automotive vision for future drivers.

Unfortunately, little has been announced on either new battery-powered electric compact SUV. But we do know they’ll both be built on GM’s new Ultium platform. This underpins its wide range of fully electric vehicles.

We already know that the Ultium EV architecture – with its skateboard-like design of floor-mounted batteries – forms the electrical basis for other GM products. These include the GMC Hummer EV, Cadillac Lyriq, and just revealed Chevrolet Silverado EV.

We don’t know the mileage range that will be offered in the new Equinox or Blazer. But we do know that GM claims more than 300 miles of range on Ultium platform vehicles.

However, current vehicles are considerably larger than the compact Equinox and Blazer models. For this reason, we expect a range of over 200 miles for these new models.

The new Chevy EV compact crossovers / SUVs will compete directly with the Ford Mustang Mach-E (range 224 to 314 miles) and the Tesla Model Y (range 244 to 330 miles).

Here are the details we know so far about these next two electric vehicles from Chevrolet.

With a starting price of around $ 30,000, the 2023 Chevrolet Equinox EV appears to be one of the most affordable over 200-mile EVs on the market.

In spring 2023, the Equinox EV will be released in both fleet and retail versions, including the popular LT and RS versions.

“Equinox has always played an important role for Chevrolet as the second best-selling brand,” said Steve Hill, Chevrolet vice president.

“Providing an affordable EV option in the industry’s largest segment proves that Chevrolet is going to make EVs accessible to everyone. “

Chevrolet Blazer EV 2023

Chevrolet has released even less information on the new Blazer EV. And unfortunately, no images have yet been released either. In addition, the Blazer has become one of the best-selling Chevrolet crossover models. In our opinion, it is not surprising that he was one of the first to benefit from the fully electric treatment.

The Blazer EV will arrive in showrooms in fall 2023 and the Equinox EV will arrive in spring 2023.
