On the Chevrolet Canadian website for the Equinox EV, they just list 3 models the 1LT, 2 LT and the 2RS.

A Canadian car internet site though, also lists the 3LT and 3RS.

Anyone know for sure what will be available in Canada?

What is offered on the US site and the Canadian site is two different things.Sometimes what is offered in the States and Canada are two different things, but I cannot see why they would in this case.

i like the 17.7” infotainment screen in the 3LT but not the 21” wheels. Hopefully either the screen is an option on the 2LT or smaller wheels an option on the 3LT. Large wheels and large tires look great, but are expensive to replace. From what I have read, tire wear is greater on EV’s.

Larger tires and wheels also decrease the amount of range and in some cases provide a harsher rider.

It is only the 1LT that has the smaller screen so you should be OK there. From what I hear, if you replace your tires every 5 years, expect to replace them every 3 on an EV, but you make up that cost and then some with less other traditional maintenance. You should be able to option up a 2LT for certain items. Chevy loves to provide those options, but there will be a few features that can only be on the 3LT. As an example, the V2L will likely only be available on the 3LT.

My Volt got 70k miles from the OEM Goodyears with 4/32" tread remaining. So, about 9 years service and the Volt is heavy with battery and ICE. I rotate at 7500 miles per the owner's manual maintenance schedule.

My Tires get rotated every year when I swap them out between Winter and All Seasons on my Volt.
