GM is going all-in planning for an electric future with its various brands. The Chevrolet brand is releasing several new EVs in the near future, and you can find some of them at your Chevrolet dealer now, with the rest coming soon. Chevy is also planning to focus on trims that feature an affordable price and good electric range.
Chevrolet Blazer EV
The Blazer’s next transformation is into an EV model, which will be sold alongside the gas-powered model. But the Chevy Blazer EV stands out from the crowd with an SS trim level that makes 557 horsepower and features aggressive acceleration. Aside from the SS trim, there are also plans for affordable and economical trims of the Bazer EV. Chevy is hoping to get 320 miles on its Blazer EV RS model, but nothing is certified by the EPA yet. The Blazer EV is expected in Chevrolet dealers by the end of the year.
Chevrolet Equinox EV
The popular Equinox EV is also getting the electric treatment with the new model expected in late 2023. The Equinox EV should start at a price of around $30,000 and a wide range of trims is also expected. The base trims should get 250 miles of range and make 210 horsepower. Higher trims will be outfitted with larger battery packs and are expected to get up to 300 miles of range.
Chevrolet Silverado EV
Chevy is taking its trucks to the next level with the all-electric Silverado. The Silverado EV will be built under the same roof as the GMC Hummer EV and use the same GM Ultium battery pack. The new Silverado EV features up to 400 miles on a single charge and will be offered in a work truck trim. Top-of-the-line RST models make up to 664 horsepower. The Silverado EV enters production this year and is part of Chevy’s goal of 30 new EV models by 2025.
Chevrolet Corvette EV and SUV
The Corvette just might be the most iconic nameplate in the Chevy stable and it too has an electric future planned. A fully-electric Corvette model is coming soon and will also use the Ultium battery platform. The E-Ray hybrid Corvette is being billed as taking performance to the next level with hybrid and electric technology. It’s less of a green alternative and simply a way to get more performance from the Corvette.
But plans for the Corvette don’t end there. There are rumors that Chevy is planning to launch a Corvette subbrand to make additional models like a four-door sedan and a high-performance crossover, similar to the Ford Mustang Mach-E. However, it will likely be a few years before you see these ideas come to fruition, so don’t expect to find them at your Chevrolet dealer anytime soon.
GM hasn’t been shy about planning to completely phase out internal combustion engines by 2035. However, Chevrolet and GMC will be the last GM brands to do so. The EV model lineup is well underway with some of the most popular models coming out soon and the rest likely to hit the market around 2025.
Despite the all-electric lineup coming soon to your Chevrolet dealer, Chevy is ending production of the Bolt by the end of 2023.
