Concurrent with the world debut of the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV on July 18th in Detroit, General Motors announced the all-electric crossover’s arrival in Mexico – where the Blazer EV will be built just like the current conventional Chevy Blazer.
The automaker confirmed that the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV will be manufactured at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico and will officially launch in the Latin country late next year, several months after its arrival in the United States and Canada, scheduled for the summer of 2023.
Following the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV and Equinox EV revealed earlier in the year, the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV becomes Chevrolet’s third zero-emission model based on Ultium battery architecture and Ultium Drive technology. The Bow Tie brand hopes to change the game in the zero-emissions category with the Blazer EV and position itself as a major player in the fastest growing EV segment.
The all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV is the first all-electric vehicle that GM confirmed it will build in Mexico, as part of the more than $1 billion investment in the Ramos Arizpe complex that the company announced in April 2021, which will become its fifth manufacturing site in North America capable of producing electric vehicles. The company could also build the Chevy Equinox EV at that plant.
During the first half of this year, GM began work at the Ramos Arizpe plant for the production of electric vehicles with the installation of new state-of-the-art machinery and robots. As such, the conversion of Ramos Arizpe to manufacture next-generation electric vehicles will further increase its importance as the automaker’s most strategic plant in Mexico.
The all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV will officially go on sale in Mexico during the fourth quarter of 2023, when the first units will begin arriving in the country’s dealer network. Details of the Blazer EV’s trim levels, pricing and the exact on-sale date in the Mexican market will be announced closer to the local launch.
