In conjunction with the CES 2022 (January 5-7), General Motors has announced its future all-electric vehicle portfolio including Chevrolet Equinox and Blazer BEVs. The company targets to launch them in 2023.
As GM Authority reported, the automaker expands its EV lineup by adding all-electric Chevrolet Equinox and Blazer crossovers: they should be introduced in the 2023 calendar year.
Both will ride on the company’s BEV3 platform, utilize such technologies of General Motors as Super Cruise (a hands-free driver assistance system), Ultium battery and Ultium Drive. Judging by concept images, expect to see new thin lighting elements outside and a wide digital screen on the dashboard in the cabin.
The Chevy Equinox will be available in LT and RS grades, in retail and fleet versions. Its estimated price starts at around $30,000. The bigger Chevrolet Blazer will logically cost more.
In general, the U.S. carmaker plans to offer 30 new electric models worldwide by 2025 as part of its e-mobility transition strategy. Certainly, they will adopt GM’s Ultium technology. New EV-centric architectures, such as BT1 and the aforementioned BEV3, will underpin them.
It would not be superfluous to add that a recent debut of the Silverado EV at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas became a landmark event for the brand, as the pickup is Chevrolet’s key best-selling model in America. By the way, it is the first production vehicle to date with huge 24-inch wheels right from the factory.
The Equinox is Chevy’s second model by U.S. sales last year, though sales dropped by almost 40% compared to 2020. The arrival of the all-electric version, as often a case with newcomers, may boost customer interest in the crossover.
