2024 Chevy Equinox EV Preview
The 2024 Chevy Equinox EV is almost here, with a release date scheduled for fall 2023. Chevy’s all-new compact crossover EV won’t only be gas-free, but potentially hands-free, thanks to the available Super Cruise system. What else can you expect from the 2024 Equinox EV? Our preview guide has the details.
What is the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV?
The Equinox EV is the first ever all-electric Equinox! This compact crossover will never need a drop of gasoline, running on battery power alone. Moreover, it will feature GM’s new Ultium battery. Compared to other EV batteries, it uses less cobalt and offers a more flexible pack arrangement, creating an increasingly energy-dense battery.
As with most compact crossover SUVs, you’ll find very roomy seating for five passengers inside the Equinox EV. And since it’s an all-new model, you can expect to find all the latest features available, from Chevy’s hands-free Super Cruise system to an extra-large infotainment touchscreen.
How long is the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV range?
Chevy says its upcoming Equinox EV will be able to travel up to 300 miles on a full battery charge. And with its standard single-motor, front-wheel-drive setup, this EV will deliver 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque. That’s plenty of power for confident around-town driving.
But the Equinox EV is also available with dual motors, which deliver power to all four wheels. Dual motors increase output to 290 horses and 346 pound-feet of torque. With dual motors, the battery range drops — only slightly — to 280 miles.
It’s easy to charge this crossover EV at home, where its 11.5-kW onboard charger can refill the battery at a rate of 34 miles of range per hour of charge. Optional for the 3RS AWD is a 19.2-kW onboard charger, which can plug into a Level 2 station to recharge at a rate of 51 miles or range per hour. These Chevy EVs also offer DC fast-charging station compatibility, where you can add 70 miles of range in about 10 minutes of charging.
