At the recent investor presentation held by General Motors, the Chevrolet Equinox EV has been announced.
The Chevrolet Equinox EV is in the works, but its launch time is still uncertain. President of General Motors Mark Reuss mentioned the model during the late event for investors.
This information is actually not so new. Since the company set a goal to launch 30 electric vehicles by 2025, it’s easy to guess the all-electric version of Equinox could be among them. Moreover, Chevrolet has a design patent that depicts a future Equinox EV by all indications.
Other GM models, by the way, to be available in all-electric guise are the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, the GMC Hummer EV, as well as a new luxury model – the Cadillac Lyriq.
Judging by the comments of Mr. Reuss, the Chevrolet Equinox EV will feature a large-capacity Ultium battery, electric motors, and cost around $30,000. The Equinox EV will utilize the company’s flexible and adaptable Ultium platform – the same as the GMC Hummer EV and the Cadillac Lyriq ride on.
The Ultium batteries have sizes from 50 kWh to 200 kWh, provide driving ranges up to 400 miles per single charge, and are Level 2 and DC fast charging capable. Vehicles adopting Ultium technology accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph in just 3 seconds.
There are scarce data, no timelines so far, but eventually the Chevrolet Equinox EV will overgrow with more details. It would be interesting to see the competition between the Chevy Equinox EV and the all-electric Ford Escape, if the latter ever entered the market.
