The Chevrolet Equinox EV will be offered with a choice of front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). The FWD versions will have a single electric motor that produces 210 hp and 242 lb.-ft. of torque, while the AWD type will get an additional motor that boosts output to 290 hp and 346 lb.-ft. of torque. GM’s One-Pedal Driving system will be part of this system, allowing drivers to speed up and slow down using only the accelerator pedal, while Regen On Demand will capture the kinetic energy formed during braking and route it to the battery.
The Equinox EV’s estimated range will depend on the drivetrain and trim level, but it’s expected to vary between 250 and 300 miles. Chevy will equip the ’24 Equinox EV with the latest charging technology, too, where a standard Level 2 charger will add 34 miles of range for each hour that it’s plugged in. The 3RS trim will be eligible for a slightly stronger Level 2 charger that can add up to 51 miles per hour of charging. The Equinox EV will also be compatible with public DC fast chargers, which can provide 70 miles of range in just 10 minutes. With the convenient Energy Assist App, you can plan the most efficient route to your destination and even manage charge payments on the go.
The 2024 Chevy Equinox EV will show off a dynamic and futuristic appearance. While it resembles the conventional gas-burning Equinox, the electric version will be glossier overall. One of its most interesting attributes will be a walk-up lighting system with unique front and rear lighting animation; the higher trims will have a light bar for an even more exclusive vibe. Some of this upcoming model’s other notable exterior features will be 19-inch wheels (20- and 21-inch wheels will be optional), flush door handles, a hands-free liftgate, roof rails, and a two-tone roof (white on the LT and black on the RS).
You can expect the Equinox EV’s cabin to be spacious, sophisticated, and rich with technology features, plus as much as 57 cubic feet of cargo space. Two 11-inch digital screens (one for instrumentation and the other for infotainment) will be standard. The 3RS trim will raise the bar with a 17.7-inch touchscreen and a high-class Bose audio system. Chevrolet will extend the option for high-end comforts such as heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and power-adjustable front seats.
Chevrolet knows that safety technology matters to today’s buyers, and they’ll be equipping the ’24 Equinox EV with a bevy of active driving aids. The standard list will consist of forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, a following distance indicator, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high beams. Some additional technologies will be available on higher trims and within packages: adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, a head-up display, and a rear camera mirror. The most exciting option will be Super Cruise, the industry’s first fully hands-free driving system. It works on more than 400,000 miles of compatible divided road systems across the U.S. and Canada and is designed to take some stress out of the driving experience.
