I hope your price guesses are way off, or that puts the 3LT in the same price range as the many times award winning AWD Preferred Ioniq 5, at least here in Canada. My choice of what to buy would be easy.That’s about my attitude as well. We have a $2250 rebate in CT which takes off $9750 if you include the full tax credit which the Equinox gets and all at the POS. But if it’s $50, and by that point there are some prospects of a discount on the Ioniq 5, I will consider that route (also looking at ID.7). However, I highly doubt the 2LT will be more than $45K U.S. I expect the following (will be interesting to look back on:
1 LT (standard range FWD): $30,000
1LT (long range FWD): $33,500
1LT (long range AWD) $37,000
2LT (FWD): $40,000
2LT (AWD): $43,500
3LT (FWD): $46,500
3LT (AWD): $49,990
No guess on the RS trims. But I think they keep the LTs under $50,000. Looks cleaner and separates it from the Blazer. Slight overlap but gives Blazer enough room to standout as more premium and feel worth it to splurge a little more for those who are interested.
EDIT: I also say this in hopes that I am wrong and it’s cheaper
The whole point for purchasing the Eq EV, at least for me was getting an All Electric AWD affordable EV, that would be 7-$10,000 less than the Ioniq 5.
i wouldn’t fret about it until GM gives pricing late summer.
