GM unveils $30,000 electric SUV that will be one of the cheapest EVs available

The Chevrolet Equinox EV will have a starting price around $30,000 which, at any rate, will make it among the cheapest electric vehicles of any sort

The average electric vehicle available today has a base sticker price of about $47,500, according to Edmunds

The $30,000 price for the Equinox EV would be, of course, for the simplest version with no optional features

The Equinox EV will be available with two-tone paint jobs, something that's been an industry trend for several years

The cheapest version will be the so-called Blazer 1LT with a single 210 horsepower engine powering only the front wheels

Among 2022 model year mass-market EVs, only the Nissan Leaf, with its base price $28,500, costs less and it also currently qualifies for a $7,500 federal tax credit
