The Equinox from AMP aims to break new ground in the electric vehicle market, where it is made possible by turning a stock Chevrolet Equinox into an all-electric people mover. Its gas engine has been taken out, while its fuel tank was replaced with batteries and electric motors. It is interesting to note that an AMP converted vehicle is still under manufacturer’s warranty for most of the vehicle systems, so you need not worry about rudimentary mechanical parts breaking down and costing you a bomb to repair in the initial span of the Equinox’s life. The entire body, interior equipment, finish, safety systems and crash test ratings were developed by GM just in case you wondered whether the Equinox had enough quality to keep customers satisfied. Initial tests have shown that the electric-powered Equinox packs quite a punch when it comes to accelerating, and is expected to hit a 150 mile range when traveling. The question is, is America ready to outfit its grid and infrastructure to make it EV-car ready?
