Where is he getting his pricing? I think he's guesstimating as his numbers are very rounded with no options specified, plus he's saying $30k but GM is saying close to $30k. He may be in the ball park.

So....that's about CAN $60 grand for a loaded 3RS.....roughly equivalent to the price of a loaded Ioniq5 AWD......

Makes sense.....馃憤
I thought GM was trying to be the "first EV that will appeal to the masses". If the pricing is equivalent to others, then I don't see the point. I guess I'll have to wait and see, but I might be staying with ICE\PHEV if the 2LT pricing will surprise me as much as this one have. I still hope this guy is wrong, and that we'll see lower prices than this.

Now, if this is for a 3RS with all options included, then I think it's fine.

$37,732 CAN for the base 1LT seems pretty good....no price shown for the loaded 3RS shown but we can assume it's quite a lot more....

Relative of mine just paid $55k CAN for a used RAV4 Hybrid (not the Prime PHEV) so even $60k for a loaded EQ EV is still competitive in the Canadian market...

Just my $0.02....馃

The 1LT is the short range, and will be mostly a fleet vehicle. I'm not sure when individual consumers will be able to buy it. We know the 2RS will be the first to be released, but my guess will be that the 1LT would be the last (2025 or so). I agree that even with the shorter range, the 1LT is a good deal, but going by the 3RS price, the model I'm interested in (2LT) will probably be a lot more expensive than what I expected (42K Canadian before taxes and rebates, 45K for the AWD).

I'm still in this and will wait for the official prices to be released before I make a decision.

I kind of doubt this one YouTuber's has knowledge of the official numbers for the top trim of the Equinox. It's not totally out of the question, but it seems like there tends to be a $15,000 gap between bottom and top trims in this segment. That's probably why they suggested $44,000 USD, but there are no official figures out there other than "around" $30,000 USD for the 1LT base trim. I'm guessing it'll be below $50K for the top trip, but I wouldn't be surprised to see something closer to $31,499 and $46,499 as the range. We'll see! My big question will be how much are the options and what's the difference between 2LT and 3LT.

Will I? I'm not sure about that these days.
Indeed. It's takes one quickly launched election in a minority parliament and you get a new federal government...

Provincial governments can be fickle too. Ontario lost their EV subsidies. In BC, they are now revenue dependant. In Quebec, EV subsidies are popular, but the party in power is in such a strong position despite lacking the support of environmental activists, that they could cancel all EV subsidies and it would probably not cost them seats in the next election.

One of the reasons I'm considering a 2024 Equinox EV, despite the risks inherent to any first year model, is that, IMO, in Quebec, the longer I wait, the subsidies I have access to, have a greater likelihood of decreasing than increasing.

Yes, but up until the Nox, nothing I found would break even over ICE (even after rebate). If they'll cancel the rebate, I'll just get an ICE instead.
