General Motors has officially unveiled the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV, a sporty all-electric crossover set to take on the Tesla Model Y. The Blazer EV will be available in a number of different trim options with the first deliveries expected to take place in the summer of 2023.
The Blazer EV is built on GMs Ultium platform and will be available four different variants.
The entry-level 1LT model is a front-wheel drive (FWD) with 247 miles (397km) of estimated range which starts at $44,995 USD.
Other trim levels include the 2LT which come with FWD as standard and AWD as optional and starts at $47,995 USD.
There is also the RS model which comes in either FWD or rear-wheel drive (RWD) standard, with an optional all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration, starting at $51,995 USD.
The 2LT can travel 293 miles (471km) on a full charge while the RS can travel up to 320 miles (515km).
There will also be a top-of-the-line SS model which comes with AWD as standard and 290 miles (466km) of range. It will produce 557 horsepower and up to 648 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to reach 60mph in under 4 seconds. All that power will need to be able to stop safely, so it will also be equipped with high performance Brembo brakes. This performance Blazer EV will start at $65,995 USD.
UPDATE 2:45pm PST: Pricing in Canada will obviously be different. In all provinces except Quebec, pricing will be as follows:
- 1LT – $51,998
- 2LT – $56,598
- RS – $61,298
- SS – $80,998
In Quebec, the Blazer EV will be higher but only because the province requires all “hidden” fees to be included in the list price.
- 1LT – $54,548
- 2LT – $59,128
- RS – $63,848
- SS – $83,548
No battery specs were released, but the Blazer EVs battery will be able to be charged at speeds up to 190kW at a DC fast charger, allowing it to gain 78 miles (125km) of range in 10 minutes. It also features a 11.5kW onboard charger for at home and at public level 2 charging.
On the interior side of things all Blazer EV trims will feature a large 17.7-inch diagonal touchscreen as well as a secondary 11-inch Driver Info Center. The cabin on all trims will feature soft touch materials and full LED lighting. The RS and SS trims will get a center light bar, power liftgate, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated, flat-bottom steering wheel as standard.
