Over the past few months, Detroit Auto Show Chevrolet has revealed no less than three new electric models that will eventually be added to the brand’s portfolio.
In addition to launching the Tahoe RST Performance, Chevrolet took advantage of the Detroit Auto Show to highlight its next series of electric vehicles. In their respective electric versions, Equinox, Blazer and Silverado have caught the eye. All three vehicles are based on General Motors’ Ultium architecture.
The electric-powered portfolio was presented by Doug Houlihan, executive engineer in the development of the Chevrolet Equinox EV and Blazer EV.
2024 Chevrolet Equinox
electric First announced last week, the Equinox EV made its first public appearance at the show. Its entry price of $35,000 for the 1LT version in Canada is certainly the metric everyone remembers.
Depending on the version selected, the range will vary from 400 to 480 km. By choosing a small battery, the developing power will be 210 hp. It will increase to 290 horsepower with the larger battery. Super Cruise technology will be available. Its arrival is scheduled for the fall of 2023.
2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV
The Equinox EV isn’t Chevrolet’s only electric SUV. Indeed, we will remember that the manufacturer presented the Blazer EV 2024 last July. This focuses more on performance. It is also bulkier. When it first launched, it attracted special attention with three configurations that can be front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
It’s also worth noting that the Blazer EV will become the first electric vehicle to wear the SS badge. This version can boast of developing 557 hp and 648 lb-ft.
Depending on the selected version, the autonomy will vary. At maximum, Blazer EV will be able to travel up to 515 km on a single charge. It can also be recharged on the 190 kW terminal. The Blazer EV in its 1LT version will be offered for $54,548.
A version called the Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) will see the light of day. It will be law enforcement.
2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV
Last January, on the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Chevrolet unveiled the electrical Silverado.
At the time, we knew it could go up to 640 km on a single charge, depending on the version chosen.
The RST First Edition offers 660 hp and 780 lb-ft of torque and power, respectively, and can tow payloads up to 10,000 lbs.
During its presentation, the Silverado EV especially impressed the showroom with the tunnel between the body and the passenger compartment, allowing the transport of long objects. Like the GMC Hummer electric EV, it can be equipped with four-wheel steering.
This all-electric truck benefits from an adaptive air suspension.
