The $30,000 price is just baited to get buyers interested. If they do make that low expensive model it will be built in low numbers with lack luster features/looks.Agree, I’m thinking $48-52k almost has to be the upper end. Figure something like $2500-3000 for AWD, $3000-5000 for larger battery, and that would still leave somewhere around $15k for the other options to go from 1LT to 3LT or 3RS. Maybe they’ll tack another $1000 or so on for the 19.2 kW Level 2 charging for the 3RS. And with destination charges of late, another $1200-1500. Also, exactly where will the “around $30k” actually be, and is that with or without any incentives/tax credits. I don’t know that even excluding destination on the 1LT they’ll be able to have a $29,995 price to advertise, but hopefully not over $33k since they are making a bit of a value play and the Bolt EV/EUV prices are coming down significantly.
The Blazer RS per Chevrolet’s site is estimated to start around $52k with its larger battery ($48k for the 2LT with the mid-battery which is likely the Equinox’s large pack, $45k for the 1LT with what is likely the Equinox’s small pack).
