Auto Show notes: part three…
In-person, the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV does look quite impressive. And quite large too. This seems to be able to compete with more expensive EVs. It’s actual;y 10 inches longer than the VW ID.4. And even 4 inches longer than the Mustang Mach-e.
As for the interior, the 3LT version on the show floor looks really impressive. Sure, this isn’t the $30 000 version. But it will probably be around $40 000 or a bit more loaded. Still well below the Mach-e and many others. I predict a huge hit for GM.
The interior is, like most recent Chevy interiors. a bit buzy. But not as busy as the more expensive Blazer EV.
I alo noticed the very impressive interior of the Polestar 2. Which has a wonderful ombination of high end materilas.
I also noticed te less than roomy back seat and pretty intrucivv hump for th emiddle seat. A very “un-EV’like feature…
At the end of the day (literally), I took a short demo ride in the Hyundai Ioniq 5. And this is still maybe my favorite EV. The Giugiaro-inspired design and dreamy interior are just fantastic…

It’s larger than the ID.4 and Mustang Mach E?? How does it compare in size to the ICE Equinox?
That would make the Equinox EV around 190″ in length, which is substantial, and that’s what I like to see! That’s almost the length of the internal-combustion Blazer crossover. I’m now wondering, the all-electric Blazer EV could now be a good 5-meters, or around 197″ in length, same as the Cadillac Lyriq.
