Chevrolet took to Twitter to give us another glimpse of the 2024 Equinox EV. The battery-electric compact crossover was announced earlier this year at the 2022 CES Show this past January complete with several images of the exterior and interior. Initially shown in silver and red respectively, we now have confirmation of a third color thanks to this new clip: a shockingly bright shade of blue. As with the red car in the digital renderings previewed at CES, this one is also an RS, the sportier-looking version. In addition to the Premier and RS, there will also be an LT variant, which will likely be the one that costs around $30,000.

The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV launches next year and like the previous photos, this video shows it from every angle. Its front fascia features a full-width LED light strip and tiered lighting elements for the main projectors. Since this is a dedicated battery-electric vehicle, there’s no traditional grille, only diamond-like patterns just below the Chevrolet badge. The rear end mimics the front end with a single LED strip connecting both taillight clusters. Both the front and rear lighting turn on sequentially, adding a sense of futurism. We also get a good glimpse of the new Equinox badge featuring three blue lines for the letter E.
This new teaser also confirms the availability of two-tone exterior colors. The blue is paired with a white roof and pillars together with black accents on the window surrounds. We also see the charging port on the left front fender just like in the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Bolt EUV. Although there are no new interior photos or footage, the previous clips released by General Motors confirmed the availability of two-tone red and black and a tri-tone black, white, and blue combo on certain models.
The Equinox EV will be the second Ultium-based model for the Chevrolet brand following the Silverado EV. It will also be the smallest vehicle on that suite, which includes a BEV-specific platform, new batteries, and three unique electric motors. We’re suspecting that the single-motor version will get at least 241 hp from an electric motor mounted on the rear axle. The least powerful motor, an 83-hp unit, is meant to be used as an assist and enable AWD and could be standard on the RS grade and optional on the others. Chevrolet recently confirmed its first performance-oriented BEV, the Blazer SS, which will cap the Blazer EV lineup. However, it will likely be the only one since it doesn’t look like a hot Equinox is in the cards.
In total, Chevrolet will have three vehicles on the Ultium suite. The Blazer EV will be the third and follow the Equinox EV closely next year. When it arrives, the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox EV will be the most affordable Ultium-based BEV and has the potential of becoming the new volume seller. Although Chevrolet hasn’t revealed it, this could eventually replace the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV in the lineup. Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free semi-autonomous driver assistance system, will be available on the Equinox EV but likely only on the higher trims like the RS and Premier. Chevrolet hasn’t revealed if this version will be similar to the one found in the Cadillac Escalade, which includes automatic lane changing.
