Chevy begins Equinox EV deliveries

According to GM, the “most affordable EV” in its class with over 300 miles of range is now being delivered to customers.

After GM began Equinox EV production earlier this year, the new electric SUV is already rolling out. Last fall, Chevy announced the entry-level Equinox 1LT FWD will start at $34,995. However, the model being delivered to customers, the 2LT version, has an MSRP of $43,295.

The Equinox EV 2RS and 2RS Launch Edition are now appearing at dealers. According to GM Authority, the 2LT, 3LT, and 3RS models are expected to arrive at dealer lots by the end of the month.

GM says the lower-priced $35K version will be available to order later this year. Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet, calls the Equinox EV an “affordable game-changer.”

An affordable game-changer

Inside, the Equinox EV features a 17.7″ infotainment system, a host of standard (and available) driver-assist features, and available Super Cruise.

The smart infotainment with Google built-in includes Google Maps, Google Assistant, and the Play Store. With up to 1,614 L (57.2 cu ft) storage, the electric SUV has enough room for all trips and adventures.

The standard FWD Ultium-based system packs 213 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque, while the e-AWD version includes 288 hp and 333 lb-ft of torque.

The FWD model gets up to 319 miles EPA-est range, while the AWD model can drive up to 285 miles on a full charge.

With up to 150 kW DC fast charging, the Equinox can add 77 miles range in 10 minutes, according to GM.

GM confirmed that the Equinox qualifies for the full $7,500 EV tax credit, bringing prices potentially as low as $27,495. For now, the cheapest 2LT FWD model can be bought for as low as $35,795 with the credit included.

Chevy’s other new electric SUV, the Blazer EV, is also eligible for the $7,500 EV tax credit. After recent price cuts, the Blazer EV can be bought for as little as $42,695. That’s with the credit included.

In other news, Chevy revealed specs for the top-of-the-line Silverado EV RST First Edition. It includes GM-estimated 754 hp and 785 lb-ft of torque. Even better, it has a 440-mile range, topping rivals like the Ford F-150 Lightning (320 mi) and Rivian R1T with Standard+ pack (315 mi).
