During the announcement of the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV at CES 2022, General Motors CEO Mary Barra teased another surprise. Electric versions of the Chevy Blazer and the Chevy Equinox are in the works and slated to arrive in 2023.
Few details have been released about the Blazer and Equinox EVs, but we do know that the Equinox EV will start at around $30,000, making it one of the most affordable electric SUVs on the market. Chevy also released photos of the Equinox EV, revealing a sleek, futuristic SUV with black contrast trim and an LED lightbar for the headlights and taillights.
Chevy said even less about the Blazer EV at the announcement, but since then we’ve learned that the Blazer EV will feature an SS trim, the famous Super Sport variant historically available on some of Chevy’s most performance-driven cars like the Camaro. It will be the first electric Chevy ever to offer this high-performance variant.
Like the Silverado EV and other future Chevy EVs, the electric versions of the Equinox and Blazer will be built on Chevy’s unique modular Ultium platform. Ultium is ultra-flexible thanks to its scalable design, easily modified for various sizes and types of vehicles, as well as its updated battery technology.
