GM has stated they will have 30 EV models in production by 2025. I think they even stated they are ahead of schedule....These sort of teasers and previews will likely be more and more common....Not my cup of tea. They all pretty much look and perform the same...

Even the new delivery trucks will be basically a Hummer platform. The diversity will be much less in performance, and only slight cosmetic differences will be touted. The more time goes by, I think boredom and monotony will be the trademark of EVs no matter how much they try and make it look otherwise. If you are dazzled and amazed with your I-Phone, you will probably find new EVs exciting. My $.02.

This is when EVs were a novelty and fun to drive, but only for a short while...lol

I can go as far as agree with you that perhaps the same or similar skateboard will be used on the delivery trucks as the Hummer. Beyond that....nope. Suspension and steering, number of motors used, power output and power delivery of those motors....and so much more before you even get to how it looks and drives...will be way different.

Look, I'm no EV fanboy, but even I can see this. I'm not sure any EV will give you quite the raw feeling of driving an unhinged ICE vehicle can provide..."no soul" is the saying, but I think driving an EV can be an enjoyable experience also.

That’s a surprise. I would’ve thought they would do it at Factory Zero (DHam) or Wentzville. Probably will move Equinox to San Luis Potosí where Terrain is made.

What's worse is they look terrible at night...just like the Cherokee's (note, NOT the Grand Cherokee).

These appearance LED strips, just to have plain halogen-looking housings below with the actual headlights is disgusting. The Blazer's have them and look gross with the actual headlights on.

I agree. I did LED conversions in my Colorado and made sure the color temp was the same on all bulbs.

I thought LED headlamps were available on the Blazer.

Maybe, but they are still located lower in that larger housing vs the upper strip.
I don't follow transverse engine mounted GM SUVs, they are absolute garbage.
