General Motors is once again reinventing the Chevy Blazer, this time leveraging the nameplate in conjunction with the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV. Now, we have our very first real-world photos of the battery-powered crossover testing in prototype form.
Although General Motors released a teaser of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV early last month, these are the first real-world photos of the new all-electric offering. According to our spy photographers, GM engineers were testing the new prototype alongside several examples of the Cadillac Lyriq. All of the vehicles operated in complete silence.
Although this prototype model is obviously covered in heavy camouflage, there are a few visual clues that help us to identify it as the forthcoming 2024 Chevy Blazer EV. The front fender, for example, gives us several nice reference points, despite the heavy black-and-white camouflage wrap.
A few of the clues include the charging door, seen taped up on the prototype, but identical in shape to the Blazer EV teaser seen last month. The fender shape and sculpting also look familiar, as do the sideview mirrors.
As for the rest of the prototype, the front end shows us placeholder lighting elements and some interesting aerodynamics, with the black design elements that flow down the sides for the fascia. Here, we also see what appears to be small air intakes that look to be similar to the air curtains used previously with the Chevy Silverado 1500. Also of note is the running gear, with 21-inch wheels wrapped in 275/45R21 Michelin rubber.
Early last month, General Motors gave us a teaser clip for the upcoming Chevy Blazer EV SS, set to rival other performance EV crossovers like the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The new Blazer EV SS will be the first Chevy EV to feature the iconic performance SS designation. Look for the new Blazer EV SS to make its debut later this year, with a launch in the spring of 2023.
