General Motors has released the first teaser clip of its upcoming Chevy Blazer SS – a powerful battery-electric vehicle that will put other performance EV crossovers like the Ford Mustang Mach-E directly in its crosshairs.
“Chevrolet provided a glimpse of the all-electric Chevrolet Blazer SS, which will be the first Chevy EV to feature a performance SS model” the automaker’s brief, two-sentence press release said. “The all-electric Blazer SS will make its debut later this year and will be available in spring 2023.”
The teaser video released Wednesday shows an individual removing a cable from the charging outlet of a red-colored crossover equipped with large machine-faced, SS-branded alloy wheels. The charge port appears to be located on the driver’s side of the vehicle just behind the left front tire and features a deployable/retractable charge door.
The upcoming Chevy Blazer SS marks the return of the iconic ‘Super Sport’ or ‘SS’ nameplate to Chevy’s crossover/SUV portfolio. The last time the SS badge was applied to a crossover was in 2009, which was the final model year for the 6.0L LS2 V8-powered Chevy Trailblazer SS.
Like all GM electric vehicles to be released in the near future, the Chevy Blazer SS will utilize the automaker’s BEV3 platform, along with Ultium battery technology and Ultium Drive electric motors. It’s hard to say how much power will be on tap, but we imagine Chevy will be benchmarking the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, which produces 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque from its dual-motor powertrain. A 91 kWh battery gives the Mach-E GT Performance Edition an estimated driving range of around 259 miles, or 418 kilometers. We should also remind readers that we recently spotted GM benchmarking the Mustang Mach-E near its test center in Michigan, as well.
