General Motors unveiled an all-electric Chevy Equinox SUV on Wednesday at the annual CES technology trade show.
The carmaker says the Equinox EV will join GM’s electric vehicle lineup in fall 2023 with a starting price of about $30,000, making it an “affordable, functional compact SUV.”
“The Equinox has always played an important role for Chevrolet as the second-highest selling brand nameplate,” Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet, said in a statement.
“Providing an affordable EV option in the industry’s highest volume segment proves Chevy is going to make EVs available to everyone,” he added.
Released photos show the EV version as noticeably curvier than the current gasoline models.
The rollout is part of GM’s $35 billion push to electrify its fleet, joining other major manufacturers' transition away from internal combustion engines.
GM also unveiled a fully electric Chevy Silverado, an answer to Ford’s F-150 Lightning EV truck with an estimated range of 400 miles on a single charge.
