The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will utilize GM’s new Ultium platform for electric vehicles, and it will need to offer up to 300 miles of range to keep up with today’s modern electric SUVs.

The Chevrolet Bolt EUV is a well-regarded electric crossover, but its small size and average acceleration are no match for the spacious, performance-focused Ford Mustang Mach-E.

This gap in the bowtie’s EV lineup will be filled next year with the introduction of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV, first previewed during the week of the 2022 CES.

Details on the eventual 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV are pretty spartan, but General Motors CEO Mary Barra said the electric crossover utility vehicle will be available on dealer lots starting in fall 2023.

The crossover will ride on GM’s Ultium Platform and arrive with a starting price of around $30,000. Based on interior photos, the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV won’t stray far from the formula that makes its gas-burning counterpart so popular.

That means a traditional five-passenger SUV with a cabin design that shares more than a few cues with the upcoming Silverado EV pickup. The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV‘s steering wheel also packs the telltale green LED light bar that signifies General Motors’ advanced Super Cruise hands-off driving technology.

Without a more comprehensive set of specs, we don’t know what sort of range or performance the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV is targeting. With the Equinox, Chevrolet is jumping into the hottest EV segment, with competitors including the Nissan Ariya, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and of course, the brand’s own Bolt EUV and upcoming Chevrolet Blazer EV.

As a result, Chevy is going to have to deliver competitive range numbers and charging times. At this price point, we surmise that entry-level models will deliver around 250 miles of range, with a larger pack likely for top-spec cars.

With the electric future pretty much already here, it’s good to see Chevy charging ahead into the white-hot electric SUV segment. But whether the automaker will deliver something that can rise to the top of this EV class is yet to be seen.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Few details have been shared about the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV’s interior, but from the photos, we can see a digital dashboard similar to that of the recently revealed Silverado EV and styling themes that mirror the Bolt EV hatchback and Bolt EUV crossover.

The front passenger space looks similar to the current Equinox, but we’ll have to wait for more details and a test drive to know for sure.
