Chevrolet Is Charged Up

This is no longer about the future. It’s about what Chevrolet is doing right now with design, technology, and creative thinking. It’s time to talk electric. And everyone’s invited to the conversation.

The upside of change is it presents opportunity. Look no further than the expanding production and adoption of electric vehicles arriving with new features and new technologies. But to truly take advantage of the opportunity, EVs can’t be exclusive toys reserved for the fortunate few. They need to be versatile, functional, and affordable. They need to be electrifying for all.

 

Enter Chevrolet.

You know the Bolt EV. You’ve seen the Bolt EUV and been introduced to Silverado EV, arriving fall 2023. Now meet the newest members of the family: Blazer EV (available starting summer 2023), and Equinox EV (arriving starting in fall 2023). The names are familiar, but the vehicles are all-new. Equinox EV, Blazer EV, and Silverado EV are each built atop General Motors’ adaptable Ultium battery architecture and designed for the next generation of automotive innovation.

 

As a group, the Chevrolet EVs will represent an extraordinary depth and breadth of electric options. And each of these vehicles is backed by an expanding infrastructure designed to make charging as easy as plugging in your phone.

EVER FORWARD IS WHAT CHEVROLET DOES, WITH STYLE TO MATCH THE MOMENT.

Getting here took bold thinkers making big breakthroughs in design, engineering, battery chemistry, and charging solutions. To keep pushing forward means committing $35 billion by 2025 to develop new vehicles and new technologies and to build out battery and vehicle manufacturing, including plants in Tennessee and Ohio and a retooled Factory ZERO assembly plant in Michigan. It means prepping Chevy dealers coast to coast, so they’ll continue to be the same valued resource to customers they’ve been since the beginning, and creating new resources like EVLive.gm.com, built to provide fast answers to your questions about going electric.

 

And it means constantly growing Ultium Charge 360, GM’s charging ecosystem that currently ensures access to more than 100,000 charge points across the U.S. and Canada and includes Energy Assist on your myChevrolet Mobile App, where you can monitor your vehicle’s battery charge and range, map the best routes to get where you’re going, and even program your car to charge when it can take advantage of off-peak energy rates.

Chevy has been a trendsetter since it was founded in 1911. It launched the Suburban in 1935 (the longest-running automotive nameplate in the country) and the Corvette in 1953. It introduced the legendary small-block V8 in 1955 and began working on electrics in the 1990s. Ever forward is what Chevrolet does, with style to match the moment.

 

In 1925, GM ran a print ad promising “a car for every purse and purpose.” Nearly 100 years later, that ambition remains. Even as lineups expand and technologies advance, Chevrolet maintains its dedication to ensuring there are options for everyone, everywhere.
