Most new vehicle shoppers in Walton Beach, Wright, Crestview, Destin, Navarre, Panama City Beach, and Pensacola will know that affordability is often an issue for electric vehicles and their desirability. However, Chevy is looking to address that with the introduction of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV, which looks set to be the most affordable model in the highly competitive electric compact crossover SUV segment.
As awareness of electric vehicles (EVs) grows among new-vehicle shoppers, many questions inevitably arise. A few years ago, most people questioned practicality, especially the driving range on a full charge of the batteries. However, as ranges have increased and shoppers become more aware of how much (or how little) they drive daily, conversations have increasingly turned toward affordability. The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV is on a mission to be the most affordable option in the electric compact SUV segment without compromising style, range, practicality, performance, or desirability. The 2024 Equinox EV isn’t competing exclusively against electric rivals. The all-new Chevy EV rivals any new compact crossover SUV, regardless of how they’re powered.
The 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV is a practical and high-performing vehicle with many high-tech features designed to benefit the driver and their passengers. Built on GM’s innovative Ultium Platform, the Equinox EV offers excellent flexibility and impressive driving range, especially for the price. Standard features include a single electric drive unit powering the front wheels, providing an estimated 210 horsepower and 242 lb.-ft. of torque. A more powerful eAWD system is available that increases the output to 290 horsepower and 346 lb.-ft. of torque. A front-wheel-drive Equinox EV with a larger battery pack should deliver up to 300 miles of range on a full charge. But even the more powerful eAWD system offers up to 280 miles. Every Equinox EV will be capable of 11.5 kW level 2 charging, which should allow you to add around 34 miles of range per hour of charging. However, 19.2 kW Level 2 (AC) charging is available for the 3RS eAWD, adding up to 51 miles of range per hour. And if you want the fastest way of charging the Equinox EV, the standard DC fast-charging capability of up to 150 kW allows approximately 70 miles of range to be added in just 10 minutes.
Whether your priority is comfort, safety, connectivity, or performance, the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV has covered it with some of the most advanced in-vehicle technology. The Equinox EV’s spacious and sophisticated cabin is awash with technology features, including a standard pair of 11.0-inch digital screens (one for instrumentation and the other for infotainment). The 3RS trim level raises the bar even further with a 17.7-inch touchscreen and a high-class Bose audio system. Five trim levels are available, which are 1LT, 2LT, 2RS, 3LT, and 3RS. Standard equipment from 2LT and higher includes heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, alloy wheels (19, 20, or 21-inch), and a stylish front LED light bar. Available options include a presence-based power liftgate, Adaptive Cruise Control, HD Surround Vision, and Super Cruise driver assistance technology.
Claiming to be the most affordable model in its class could lead to low expectations from prospective buyers. But even a brief investigation of the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV reveals an exciting and desirable new electric compact SUV that delivers in every area that matters to discerning new vehicle shoppers.
