2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV Preview
General Motors' (GM) vehicle-electrification strategy is accelerating, and its brands are announcing new models rapidly. Chevrolet has already announced the Silverado EV pickup and the Equinox EV, and it has now revealed the new Blazer EV, which has an expected on-sale date of Spring 2023.
Like the GMC Hummer EV and Chevrolet Silverado EV, the new Blazer EV will use GM's Ultium platform, but Chevy hasn't detailed sizes and range numbers for the all-electric compact crossover SUV. We'll see single- and dual-motor configurations—the latter providing all-wheel drive (AWD)—with a high-end SS performance variant at the top and lower-priced single-motor versions at the entry level.
Four trims are available on the new Blazer EV: 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS. Chevy will also offer a dedicated fleet model for use by police and others. The Blazer EV's Ultium platform enables flexible software functionality and may help Chevy improve the SUV over time. It's also a dedicated electric platform, so there are none of the headaches that come along with retrofitting a traditional gas vehicle's underpinnings to work with batteries and electric motors.
