    2023 Chevrolet Equinox EV

    A fantastic looking front end!​

    Chevrolet is getting ready to expand its already robust near-term future lineup with yet another EV announcement. This time, the Equinox EV will be released in the fall of 2023 as a 2024 MY compact CUV.

    The most interesting item regarding this announcement is that it is a compact CUV that everyone seems to be in love with and it should become available with a $30,000 MSRP! Like all GM pronouncements as of late, take that retail with a grain of salt. With the $7,500 Fed TC having sunset a while back, $30k for this looks to be a stunning deal. Except the $30k model will probably be an unavailable stripped LT trim with 225-miles of range while the RS (shown) will be $75k with 350 to 400-miles of range if it follows the Silverado EV pricing announcements.

    This interior looks modern, appealing, comfortable and very driver centric.​

    The Equinox EV will be launched with both “fleet and retail” versions, including LT and RS trims, and will be yet another shell placed on GM’s Ultium Platform.

    The Equinox always had a nice look rear end. This one is no different. ;)

    The announcement of the Equinox EV comes on the heels of Chevy’s reveal of the 2024 Silverado EV and confirmation of the Blazer EV SUV, which will be available in the spring 2023. Let us hope GM gets this one right as I would love to have one in my drive for a week or more. ;)

    It's not a "real" car until it shows up on the dealership lot. You might get in a bit if trouble
    for holding a gun to the dealer's head ( the only way he will order those less profitable models).

    Excuse me while I go to Bill Kay Nissan to get my $500 deposit I gave them last summer for a "stripped" Leaf.

    If by some chance I find that unicorn at a Chevy dealership for $30K , I might buy one.

    I remember checking inventory for the Trailblazer in the elusive "L" trim, with MSRP $19995. Little leaf-blower motor driving only the front wheels through a fan belt, any color you like as long as it's white or silver, and little else. Although there was no interest in purchase, I wanted to see how many of these widely advertised unicorns were floating around. At the time I looked, there were two in the USA, and neither were near any populated area. Best guess is they were ordered for local businesses to use as delivery carts, and everything shows as dealer inventory until the deal is closed.

    Based on that experience, I suspect two samples of the $30k EVquinox will be available at Chevrolet of Somewhere In A CARB State, resplendent in Summit White appliance paint with Dead Mouse Gray burlap seating surfaces, ready to roll off the lot on their silver steelies adorned with plastic hubcaps.

    Of course, that commercial-spec stripped vehicle would be perfect for me. Basic paint that can be touched up with white-out, license plate frame stating, "As you can tell... I really like strippers" affixed to the dark gray matte plastic bumper surface, interior plastics that look like formica so you don't worry about minor scuffs, and only one drive wheel wearing the cheapest,skinniest LRR tire the manufacturer could find.
    And if I can find one, I'd get a window decal that says, "Don't bother stealing me. I only have 20 miles of range left and I take four hours to charge at a station that's 30 miles away".
    Another must-have for any EV I would own: Get a decal made to stick on the rear hatch. It'd be a simple pair of hand-prints and text underneath that says "EV Range Extender... Push Here".

    And who doesn't like strippers ? I think my mate might frown upon the license plate frame.
    Also , I'm really not that fussy about color, but I don't want white. Is that a racist thing to say ?

    And my Prius has plastic wheel covers ( on alloys ) , so that's not an issue. And regardless what a LOT of Americans say......
    225 miles of range is plenty for Edwin.

    I love our stripper Venetian Red 2016 manual Elantra, altho it isn’t a great stripper. Hey, it came with A/C, Cruise Control, more subtle electric steering & better Venetian Red color than the extras that came on our Venetian Red 2013 automatic Elantra. The 2016 gets better MPG than the 2013. The 2016 Elantra even came with the auto-dimming rear view mirror that also has the compass!

    Oh….oh….you mean strippers?! Oh…..I understand! Oh….. ah…..very funny!!o_O :rolleyes:

    2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV PPV Police Pursuit Vehicle

    [​IMG] The future of policing is almost here.

    Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Aug. 17, 2022

    2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV in Police Trim

    [​IMG]

    As more states and municipalities implement carbon reduction plans and targets, the all-new 2024 Blazer EV PPV can help achieve them with uncompromising performance and capability for officers. It is the brands first pursuit-rated all-electric for the rigors of law enforcement duty.

    The Blazer EV PPV will be based off the upcoming Blazer EV SS. Final specs and range will be available closer to its launch in Q1 of 2024. The PPV will be offered with skid plates, police-rated tired, steel wheels and additional emergency equipment support. It will also have the capability for light-duty towing for items such as radar trailers, as well as the capability for bicycle racks when equipped a dealer-installed Class 1 trailer hitch.

    Many patrol cars spend a lot of their time idling, creating emissions from running a gasoline engine to support the electrical loads of a law enforcement vehicle. Chevrolet is utilizing the largest possible Ultium battery available for this Blazer EV PPV to support the electrical needs of a patrol car needed for law enforcement.

    Additionally, the Blazer EV PPV has a low center of gravity, thanks to the roughly 1,200 lb traction battery mounted low in the skateboard chassis. It also uses Brembo brakes designed to offer superior stopping power.

    Ready for Patrol

    [​IMG]

    Inside, police-specific front seats are design accommodate duty belts and wearable gear, for greater comfort on patrol, while standard unprogrammed steering wheel buttons allow upfitters to connect Push to Talk function for department radios and fingertip operation of emergency warning equipment. A driver spot lamp is also available.

    The standard upfitter wiring harnesses includes added connectors to reduce up-fit times. The Blazer PPV was designed with police-level electrical loads including a dedicated electrical center, standard upfitter wiring harnesses, and enough power available for the necessary law enforcement equipment. Chevy also offers a standard upfitter vehicle module which provides all necessary signals needed for aftermarket equipment to communicate with the vehicle.

    The Blazer EV PPV offers a larger rear cargo capacity with the “civilian” model’s false floor removed to make room for aftermarket cabinets and organizers. It also comes with a standard Rear Camera Mirror, allowing officers a wide field of view behind the vehicle. This helps enhance visibility, as most police vehicles equipped with prisoner partitions, cargo barriers and vertical weapon mounts that can obstruct the rear view.

    The Blazer EV PPV 9C1 police package has standard vinyl flooring, a police-spec center console and a vinyl rear seat. A 9C3 Street Appearance package is also available and features carpeting, the regular-production center console and cloth rear seats.

    Hmmm.... I see six lug wheels on this thing. That tells me it's either very heavy - closer to 5k pounds curb and 7k pounds GVWR, or it's borrowing hubs and rolling pieces from the Chi platform that we know as the Blazer/Traverse, Acadia, Enclave, and "XT6" Crap DeVille.
    The RS versions rolling on 21" wheels makes me wonder how many fatal heart attacks will occur in the future when the owners of these RS Equinox vehicles roll into their favorite tire & muffler joint and find out replacement tires are around $600 a piece and don't last much longer than the lease term. Hopefully the oversize wheel styling craze will fade into obscurity alongside its ancestors - the tailfins and tri-tone paint jobs of the 50s, hidden headlights of the 60s, opera windows and vinyl roofs of the 70s, plastic side cladding and trunk-mounted luggage racks of the 80s, and tacky trunk-mounted "spoiler" wings and silly body kits of the 90s.

    Ain't that the truth. How many of those $41,000 F-150 Lightnings are rolling out dealership doors? Tesla Model 3 Standard Range? Try buying a Kona EV. Or a Niro EV. Or an Ioniq 5 SE Standard Range. These are the vehicles that automakers claim in their "build and price" shopping tools to be offering around $41k, but not in their "search inventory" tools. Not that this is only a problem with EVs (good luck buying the base or even second-tier trim of ANY car right now), but it especially noteworthy because they're so expensive to start.

    To their credit, Chevy and Nissan are the only automakers that seem to have been producing and delivering base versions of their EVs: you can actually get a Leaf S or Bolt/BoltEUV 1LT if you want one. In fact, those are about the only EVs I'm seeing under 48,000 right now. At some point this goes past the level of mere shortages, and deliberate false advertising. Don't claim to be offering a low-priced model that you aren't.

    But still, color me a little skeptical that Chevy will be bringing us any $30k Equinox EVs in the first year of production.

    More on the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox BEV

    2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV

    [​IMG]

    The all-new 2024 Equinox EV will be on my short list once it arrives as an affordable and uncompromising transition to an EV for me.

    With a starting price of around $30,000 for the base short range 1LT, it will also be available with up to an available GM-estimated 300 miles of range on a full charge. GM has not even hinted at the price for the longer range FWD unfortunately.

    With the Equinox EV, designers and engineers focused on the style, space, safety and value attributes that made the gas-powered Equinox second to only the Silverado in Chevy sales and elevated them with expressive design, electrifying capability and effortless EV technology.

    In addition to the Ultium propulsion system, the Equinox adds a large infotainment screen including an available 17.7” display and available Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology for compatible roads.

    Highlights include:
    • Sleek lines
    • Walk-up lighting, with front and rear lighting animation standard and an available unique light bar on mid- and up-level LT and RS trims
    • Standard 19” alloys - 20- and 21” alloys are available depending on the trim
    • Available presence-based liftgate that can open hands-free when sensing the key fob is near the back of the vehicle
    • Available two-tone white roof on LT and available black roof on RS
    • Modern interior w/ personalized ambient lighting and a smart infotainment system. Up to 57 cu. ft. of cargo volume with the rear seat folded
    When it comes to comfort and convenience, heated front and rear outboard seats, a heated steering wheel and even a heated windshield wiper park feature, which helps keep the area around the wipers clear of ice buildup, are available.

    The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will arrive with the following standard safety features:
    • Automatic Emergency Braking
    • Following Distance Indicator
    • Forward Collision Alert
    • Front Pedestrian Braking
    • Lane Keep Assist w/ Lane Departure Warning
    • Auto high beams
    • Rear Park Assist
    • Reverse Auto Braking
    • Safety Alert Seat
    • Rear Cross Traffic Braking
    • Blind Zone Steering Assist
    Available driver assistance technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control and HD Surround Vision, with a Heads-Up Display and Rear Camera Mirror are also available. Adaptive CC is an option?

    Additionally, Super Cruise4, the industry’s first true hands-free driver-assistance technology is also available. It allows drivers to travel hands-free on more than 400,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada.

    The standard FWD system provides 210 hp and 242 lb-ft of torque with the eAWD providing 290 hp and 346 lb-ft torque.

    One-Pedal Driving is unfortunately standard and allows the Equinox EV to accelerate and slow to a full stop, using only the accelerator.

    The Equinox EV also packs the latest in charging technology:

    • Standard 150 KW DC fast-charging - 70 miles of range in 10 minutes
    • GM covers the Equinox EV’s battery with an 8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty, in addition to the vehicle’s standard bumper-to-bumper coverage
    2024 Chevrolet Equinox BEV All-Electric Range Estimates
    • 1LT - FWD short range/FWD long range/eAWD long range: 250/300/280 miles
    • 2LT & 3LT - FWD short range/eAWD long range: 300/280 miles
    • 2RS & 3RS - FWD short range/eAWD long range: 300/280 miles
    The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV will be available in fall 2023, starting with a limited edition 2RS. The Equinox EV will be produced at GM’s Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, production facility. Still a year away as stated. :(
