Chevrolet will be expanding its lineup of all-electric vehicles with the 2024 Equinox EV. While the Equinox EV shares a nameplate with the gas-powered, compact Equinox, the all-electric model doesn’t have a lot in common with the other SUV. When the Equinox EV arrives, it will sit above Chevrolet’s smaller offerings like the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV, while below the Blazer EV.
The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will feature a sweeping exterior design that resembles a large wagon instead of a traditional SUV. The front end features a slim horizontal light that runs the full width of the SUV. The front fascia has an angular trim piece and a noticeably grille-less design that’s a departure from the Bolt EV and EUV. The rear end of the SUV has a similarly large horizontal light that connects the taillights, with triangular taillights curving around the body. Chevy will offer the Equinox EV with a different color roof for extra sportiness.
On the inside, the 2024 Equinox EV appears to combine elements from the Bolt family and the Blazer to hide its affordable price tag. The SUV features round air vents, a center console that’s slightly angled toward the driver, and physical controls at the bottom of the center console. The Equinox EV will come with a digital instrument cluster that’s connected with the infotainment system to look like a single unit as standard. There’s room for up to five people and Chevy claims that the SUV offers up to 57 cubic feet of total cargo space.
Chevrolet hasn’t released its official features list for the 2024 Equinox EV yet, but we do know a few things. The SUV will come with an 11-inch digital instrument cluster and an 11-inch infotainment screen as standard equipment. A larger 17-inch display is optional. We expect wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB ports, satellite radio, navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot to be available.
The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will be available with two powertrains. The SUV will be offered in a front-wheel-drive model with a single electric motor that makes 210 horsepower. All-wheel-drive models have an extra electric motor on the rear wheels for up to 290 hp. Range for the Equinox EV ranges from 250 for models with FWD and the small battery pack to 300 miles with FWD and the large battery pack. AWD models are estimated to have 280 miles of range.
Every 2024 Equinox EV will come with Chevrolet Safety Assist as standard. It includes automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam assist, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and reverse automatic emergency braking. Available features will include a surround-view parking camera, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, and GM’s Super Cruise hands-free system.
