The First-Ever Blazer 2024 EV: Electric SUV – Chevrolet
REIMAGINE WHAT AN SUV CAN BE
Blazer EV is the complete package with style, performance and technology. Available in multiple trims, colors and battery ranges, this daring new all-electric midsize SUV is built from the ground up around the game-changing Ultium battery platform. Ultium offers flexibility in charging speeds, range and performance — giving the sporty Blazer EV the sheer power and confidence needed to go the distance.
What We Know About the Blazer EV So Far
Whether you’re driving around town or across the country, Blazer EV offers a GM-estimated range of up to 397–514 kilometers on a full charge*. When enabled, Regen on Demand™* and One Pedal Driving* help convert the vehicle’s kinetic energy into energy stored in the battery for later use to help get the most range.
- Performance – Range? The performance-oriented powertrain in the SS model doesn’t disappoint from an output perspective either, with 557 hp and up to 648 lb-ft of torque on tap. When combined with the SS’ Wide Open Watts mode (think Hummer EV’s Watts to Freedom mode), the SUV should do 0-60 mph in less than four seconds. GM also says that the Blazer EV is capable of 514 kilometers on a single charge in RS trim, though based on industry trends, that is only when equipped with the large battery and rear-drive configuration. The 1LT, 2LT and SS models will achieve range estimates of 397 kilometers, 466 Kilometers, 471 Kilometers, respectively. We’ll get more specific details out of GM as the SUV’s on-sale date draws nearer.
- Battery Specs? When it does eventually come time to top up the battery, the Blazer EV is supported by 11.5 kW Level 2 charging, as well as DC-fast charging capabilities up to 190kW, depending on the model you purchase. That sort of speed should allow customers to add 125 kilometers of range in just 10 minutes at the charger, according to the automaker’s estimates.
- Exterior Options? The Blazer EV carries that blacked out theme down the A-pillars, which helps to slim visual heft even further. Combined with the trick dual-tone mirrors, the Blazer EV SS hides its size better than a lot of SUVs. The 22-inch wheels on the SS are more stylish than many range-focused designs that we see today as well, a compromise Houlihan noted allowed the team to fit sticky summer tires as an option. Blazer EV LT models sport a more traditional monochromatic look, offset with 19-inch wheels. The RS models pick up some of the SS style, with black accents and upsized 21-inch wheels.
- Interior Options? Inside is where the Blazer EV really separates itself from the current model. Not a single component is shared between the two Blazers, a fact that is noticeable from the moment you open the door. Every surface is finished in a higher quality material than before, which is something the automaker believes will be paramount for EV buyers. More soft-touch materials can be found in place of hard plastics, while SS models get a nicely trimmed leather interior with sporty accents throughout. There’s even a flat-bottom steering wheel intended to bring a bit of Corvette feel. A giant 17.7-inch diagonal infotainment system dominates the interior, which comes oriented towards the driver similar to the one found in the C8 Corvette. The air vents also mirror those found in other GM performance products, which the team admittedly wants the Blazer EV to be recognized as. That new infotainment system works in tandem with an 11-inch digital display ahead of the driver, and comes backed by GM’s Ultifi software system. This means features like navigation with active charging information and over-the-air updates are on the table. GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driving system is also available for the Blazer EV, along with a suite of other driver assistance features like Reverse Automatic Braking and Advanced Park Assist.
