Could the Chevrolet Equinox EV Substitute the Bolt?

The new 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV has been unveiled this month at the CES 2022 in Las Vegas, and it is slated to launch next year.

The model may well become a worthy alternative to the Chevy Bolt EV and Bolt EUV if it won’t displace them at all.

The all-electric 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV has made its debut earlier this month at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show. The e-crossover is modern-looking and innovative. It rides on a new BEV3 architecture and adopts the brand’s Ultium battery and Ultium drive motor technology providing at least 300 miles of range when equipped with a smaller battery.

Well, everything seems fine with the Equinox EV, and GM Authority is wondering now if the electric Equinox would replace the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV. We think it’s possible.

Let’s start with the fact that the Chevrolet Equinox is a significantly more popular model than the current Bolt, if we take the U.S. market: 48,803 Bolt sales vs 165,325 Equinox sales in 2021.

Secondly, the new Equinox EV’s platform is more up-to-date compared to the older BEV2 the Bolt sits on.

Thirdly, the Equinox EV covers more miles on a single charge. The Bolt EV and EUV can boast 259 and 247 miles, respectively, which is not that much by today’s standards.

Also, the electric Equinox will almost certainly have more space in the cabin for cargo and occupants than both Bolts.

As for prices, they start at $32,495 including DFC for the Bolt EV and $34,495 for the Bolt EUV. The carmaker says that the electric Chevy Equinox’s starting price will be around $30K. That is, the prices are comparable. Thus, the Equinox EV has a real chance to surpass the Bolts, though it won’t happen this year.
