The Chevrolet Equinox EV aims to position itself as a livable midsized SUV with around 300 miles of range, all for a price around $30k. But given GM's reliability issues with EVs in Consumer Reports' surveys, will the Equinox be able to make an impact in this highly competitive segment?

It’s a shame they’re removing CarPlay support from these vehicles….the Blazer EV was gonna be on our short list for next vehicle but not anymore. Similar to things like backup cameras were back in the day, CarPlay has become too much of a convenience and a comparison point for many people, including our family. It was the reason we didn’t buy a Tesla. OEM infotainment integration like Tesla or even Android Automotive are fine in their own ways, but just can’t compare to CarPlay functionality if you’re all in on the Apple ecosystem. It will definitely be in the next car we buy. This is of course just my personal opinion, but I can’t imagine I will be alone.
The one thing that can really increase sales is giving the consumer the ability to bypass dealerships and buy directly from the factory; point, click, and ship.
They make all their money from service centers anyways lol instead of sales they can just be “showmen” showing you how everything in the car works and it’s features…. While they upsell you on a new air filter you REALLY don’t need 😂
The Equinox EV checked all of my boxes until GM announced it would be dropping Carplay in their EV’s . I hope they change that decision. I’ll be looking at the reliability of the Lyriq and the Blazer to determine if I’m going to take a chance on the Equinox. Seems like it would be best to wait until it’s been out for a year or so, but I’m thinking it will be a while before even the first ones come out judging on how the rollout of the Equinox has gone.
I noticed that consumer report never got the reliability right on my ICE vehicles. Bolt EV became the most reliable EV. I did talk to the tow truck driver he said he had been towing a lot of EVs and ICE vehicles for years. But he never actually tows any Bolt EV with something wrong with it. They either tire or ran out of charge. During hard raining there were many EVs on the side of the road but never once seen any Bolt EV on the side of the FW.
What are you talking about that the Bolt is unreliable??? Yes, it had a battery recall, but that was a recall…. Go to any forum or social media platform and you’ll be hard pressed to find someone with a real issue.
That’s what I thought. If I remember correctly. just a few years ago the Bolt was one of the highest rated vehicles on some surveys. Now that every single one of them was recalled its rating has tanked. But a recall doesn’t equal poor reliability. But GM is having a problem rolling out their Ultium electric vehicles. It is going way too slow. They will be able to sell every one of these Equinoxes they can build. But no way in hell are they going to sell 1 million by 2025. More like 2030.
That is kinda ugly looks like a vw
The important thing will be the out-the-door price.
What’s with GM not wanting braking or running lights visible on their new evs. Why would I by a car that looks like the taillights burnt out the day I took it home. Bumper taillights are for lift gates that open with their lights….. you aren’t audi chevy
I know this sounds dumb, but this is one the vehicles I am most looking forward to seeing this year. simply because it’s got such a big opportunity to change the EV market by a lot.
This does well, everyone else will need to redo their portfolios to catch up.
no carplay anymore？seriously？
Greetings from southern Ontario Canada I have put down a deposit for this EV $38000 for the 1LT & 400 kms per charge and $5000 rebate thanks for the presentation
