Electric vehicles (EVs) are quickly gaining in popularity, with good reason. The decreased reliance on gas, elimination of harmful emissions, and excellent performance of EVs all add to their appeal. Drivers in Lewisville, Texas, are quickly realizing how efficient and reliable EVs are, and Chevrolet’s EV lineup has been flying off our lot. Chevrolet has been hard at work developing their EV lineup, which will soon expand dramatically. Starting with the 2024 models, Chevy will introduce a whole new fleet of EVs, including the Silverado EV, Blazer EV, and Equinox EV, which join the Bolt EV to complete the lineup.
One of the most common concerns for drivers when considering buying an EV is the vehicle’s driving range. While EV drivers love eliminating the reliance on gasoline, the tradeoff is an increased reliance on finding and using charging stations. Luckily, driving ranges are improving every year, and Chevrolet has tapped into the advances in EVs over the years to produce a lineup of vehicles with long-lasting ranges. At Huffines Chevrolet Lewisville, we think you’ll be pleased with how far you can go in between charging stops.
Chevrolet Bolt EV
The Chevrolet Bolt — Chevrolet’s first fully electric car — was introduced to the American market in 2016. Sales continue to be solid, but 2023 will be the final year for Chevrolet Bolt production. As Chevy’s EV lineup expands, the company is focusing its resources on producing batteries for the newer EVs and saying goodbye to the Bolt for good. However, that doesn’t mean the 2023 Bolt is a vehicle to ignore. This small electric hatchback is the least expensive EV available on the market, making it an excellent choice for drivers on a budget.
The Bolt uses a single 200-horsepower motor to power its front wheels, which makes for brisk acceleration from stop lights. The Bolt also comes with a one-pedal driving mode, which increases regenerative braking and reduces reliance on the brake pedal for slowing down. Despite its compact appearance, the inside is surprisingly roomy, with 17 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats or 57 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. The Bolt comes equipped with a 10.2-inch touch-screen infotainment system and integrated wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Bolt also includes an impressive suite of driver assistance features, including standard automatic high beams, front pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.

Chevrolet Equinox EV
The Chevrolet Equinox is a family favorite, offering plenty of space for your passengers and cargo while also providing a host of features that offer a comfortable and convenient ride. The electrified compact SUV will feature a similar exterior style to its traditionally powered counterpart. Still, it also varies in some significant ways, leaving no doubt that you’re driving an EV. Most Equinox EVs will be equipped with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an available option. The single electric motor provides 210 horsepower in the front-wheel-drive version and 290 horsepower in all-wheel-drive variations.
The interior of the Equinox EV includes an impressive array of features to enhance the overall quality of your drive. All trim levels except the base model include heated seats, power seats, a sunroof, and dual-zone climate control. Interior technology is state-of-the-art and boasts a 17.7-inch diagonal touch-screen infotainment system paired with an 11-inch digital display cluster.
Driving range: up to 300 miles
Chevrolet Blazer EV
The Chevrolet Blazer is a long-lasting mid-size SUV that will finally be electrified in 2024. This SUV aims to combine a sporty exterior aesthetic, equally athletic performance, and the efficiency that makes EVs so appealing. The Blazer EV will be available in a wide range of trim levels with a host of options and specifications. Front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive are all options with the Blazer EV. You’ll also be treated to a performance model boasting 557 horsepower, 648 pound-feet of torque, and capable of reaching 60 mph in under four seconds.
Three different battery sizes are available in the Blazer EV, creating slightly different driving ranges and charging times. For drivers interested in getting back on the road in a hurry, you’ll be happy to hear that the Blazer can add 78 miles of driving range after just one 10-minute stop at a DC fast-charging station.
Inside, the Blazer’s interior design nicely matches the aggressive exterior styling. Drivers can expect unique accents and stylistic touches for each trim level. However, one consistent feature is the 17.7-inch touch-screen infotainment system paired with an 11-inch digital gauge cluster. Drivers are treated to driver assistance technologies such as standard automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, front pedestrian detection and braking, optional reverse automated braking, and advanced park assist. The Blazer EV also has GM’s Super Cruise technology available as an option, which allows for hands-free highway driving.
Driving range: up to 320 miles
Chevrolet Silverado EV
Chevrolet’s top-selling pickup truck debuts its electric version in 2024, promising power and performance to rival gas-powered pickups. The Silverado EV is powered by two electric motors that produce an impressive 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque. Its brawny motors are capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds, making it as versatile and hard-working as it is efficient. Inside, the column-mounted shifter opens up console space, creating a roomy interior for the comfort of both the drivers and passengers.
The standard 11-inch touch-screen infotainment system can be upgraded to a 17-inch version, and the 11-inch digital display cluster rounds out the technology-focused interior. The multi-flex midgate design allows you to increase the length of the truck bed for extra-large loads, a convenient feature that’s not easy to find in pickups.

Chevrolet’s EV Lineup Is Set To Impress
Clearly, 2024 will bring significant changes to Chevy’s EV lineup.
