General Motors has unveiled an all-electric Chevy Equinox.

During the annual CES technology conference Wednesday, the automaker announced it will expand its electric vehicle lineup in fall 2023 with the Equinox EV, an “affordable, functional compact SUV” with a starting price of about $30,000. 

Chevy released photos of the fully electric model, which is curvier than current mass market gasoline models.  

“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.  

The news comes as GM also unveiled Chevy’s answer to Ford’s F-150 Lightning: a fully electric version of the Chevy Silverado with an estimated range of 400 miles on a single charge.  

The Silverado EV is expected to launch in 2023 in two stages, starting with a $39,900 work truck that will be made available to a group of commercial fleets in the spring. The RST First Edition models will then be released in the fall with a price tag of more than $100,000, with less expensive versions of the truck set to roll out to retail customers going into 2024, according to GM.  

Chevy has also confirmed a fully-electric version of the Blazer will be released in the spring of 2023.  

The rollout is part of the automaker’s $35 billion push to electrify its fleet, as most major car manufacturers are transitioning away from traditional internal combustion engines that emit harmful greenhouse gases.
