Here Is The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV59
The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV has made its official debut, ushering in the next generation of mass-market electric crossovers from the American brand with an available GM-estimated range of up to 320 miles on a full charge.
The Chevy Blazer EV will be available in front-, rear- and all-wheel drive configurations, while the trim level lineup will include 1LT, 2LT, RS and Blazer EV SS, along with a Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) model for law enforcement. GM is staying tight-lipped on how much power and range each of these various models will have, however certain configurations will offer up to 320 miles of GM-estimated range. The crossover will also feature 11.5 kW level 2 AC charging and standard DC public fast-charging capability of up to 190 kW, depending on the model, adding approximately 78 miles of range in 10 minutes, per GM estimates.
Each Chevy Blazer EV trim level will have distinctive exterior treatments to complement their individual characteristics, the automaker says. The 1LT and 2LT models will feature a monochromatic exterior appearance with standard 19-inch wheels, while the RS will take on a sportier look with a black grille and other black accents, as well as standard 21-inch wheels. The automaker says the crossover has a “a muscular, athletic profile” enabled by its BEV3 platform and Ultium battery tech, with “taut, converging body lines” and prominent fenders that serve as a “nod to Chevy’s motorsports legacy.” Standard LED headlights are included across the board, while RS and SS trim levels will feature a unique welcome/goodbye lighting animation.
Inside, the Blazer EV will feature a standard 17.7-inch diagonal color touchscreen, joined by an 11-inch digital driver information center. Other comfort and convenience-related highlights include ambient lighting, a power-opening charge port door, charging station navigation and route planning through the MyChevy app, an available presence-based automatic liftgate and available hands-free Super Cruise. The Blazer also lacks an actual start button and is instead activated by pushing the brake pedal after the driver closes the door.
A variety of Chevy Safety Assist features come standard in this electric crossover, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and IntelliBeam. Two of Chevy’s latest driver assist technologies, Reverse Automatic Braking and Advanced Park Assist, are also standard equipment across all trim levels.
The 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV will go on sale in the 2LT and RS trim levels in the summer of 2023, with respective prices starting at around $47,595 and $51,995 before the destination freight charge. The base 1LT will launch in the first quarter of 2024 with prices starting at around $44,995. GM is accepting reservations now via Chevrolet.com, with additional details and ordering information available closer to the start of production next year, which will take place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
Meanwhile, the Chevy Blazer PPV model for law enforcement will feature the largest available battery pack in the lineup, larger Brembo brakes and available front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, GM says. This model, which also promises a police-specific interior “with ample room to accommodate emergency equipment and gear” will launch for fleets in early 2024 at the same time as the 1LT.

Nice looking and seems promising. From the article, is sounds like even the 1LT trim will be way more loaded up than what I’m wanting and with a price tag to show it. It will be interesting to see the Equinox EV when they show it. If they have an MSRP starting at 30 grand on that, it would be more interesting to me. But I’ll still be waiting for a nice and simple sedan EV from GM.
Crossovers is where it’s at, so it makes sense to drop the Blazer and Equinox first. An Equinox SS may be in my future.
I too am curious about the Equinox EV because of its aggressive price-to-range ratio, but I just learned that gm is making a fleet version of the Equinox EV. It might mean the $30,000 price tag is for that model with the other models progressively more expensive. I hope not, but we will see.
I love the first sentence. The next generation of electric mass market crossovers from an American brand. Made in Mexico.
Assembly in Mexico. The most valuable part of the car the EV Drivetrain (batteries and motors) made in the USA, I would think.
Very nice! The Blazer EV looks so much better than I first thought when I saw the photos of the mules running about. The non SS Blazer look clean with smooth muscular lines. I am impressed, the Blazer EV range should do well for GM in the mid end crossover market.
Sounds like all these models for consumer use will be RWD but for fleet in 1LT which will be FWD. Sounds like FWD will get a front motor only while the proportions have that long dash-to-axle RWD profile looks is a winner than the ICE FWD counterparts.
No one in snow country wants a RWD, that’s a giant step backwards that will not sell!
Yeah but consumers will have a choice in selecting their drive train layout. Most people may select the LT with FWD, buyers might have to step up to the RS and SS for RWD and AWD which can be a problem. We will see how the options breakdown as time goes by.
1LT is FWD only.
2LT, is FWD or eAWD.
RS is FWD, RWD, or eAWD.
SS is “performance AWD”.
There is a huge difference between an ICE with RWD and EV RWD. RWD ICE vehicle is pushing a 500-800 lbs engine on top of the front wheels. An EV has the electric motors on the axle or at the wheels. Therefore, with EV motors at the drive wheels and RWD will perform far superior to a conventional ICE.
FWD or RWD = one motor?
AWD= two motors?
Thanks for this! One does not have to go up to the RS for AWD, which is good.
So they won’t get a RWD. They’ll get the all-wheel drive one.
You can get FWD, AWD or RWD. Yet some complain about the layout.
Can’t make this stuff up. NWD? It needs to hover or why bother.
Why would someone thumbs down my comment, when it says there are options available?? lol
I guess they don’t like options. 🙂
Except in Southern States!
We need to know more about the physical specifications and dimensions of the Blazer EV. I tried searching for them at the Chevrolet page but did not find them. I expect the specifications to be similar to the Cadillac Lyriq because they will be assembled at the same plant and line.
The Blazer EV will be produced at the Same Mexico facility as the ICE Blazer.
Only dimensions I’ve seen suggest the Blazer EV will have a wheelbase that’s 9.1 inches longer than the ICE version. The length will allow the Blazer EV to house the largest of its battery packs. It should have significantly more space than its gas counterpart.
So how much will they loose on this one if they lost 7K/unit (before recalls) on the bolt????
Will it bother you that this is more profitable than the ICE version?
What’s this about a loose bolt now?
No thanks, I’m keeping my ICE’s. As soon as the Republicans take over this failed administration, gas and diesel prices will come back down.
No one cares what you do or think.
Do you really think the orange clown could have done something to prevent the high gas prices?
Simple answer : No, absolutely nothing.
On a second thought, after a nuclear strike, gas prices would actually not matter anymore…
You’re right. This POS we have in office now had nothing to do with the high prices by canceling drilling and the pipeline.
Please read my comment and point out to me where I stated Oil companies set the price of a barrel of oil. You’ll notice I did write that they do control the pricing of gas, thus the reason they’re making record profits despite demand for gas decreasing.
1.) he didn’t cancel any pipeline. He withdrew their permit to build an extension of an existing (still operating) pipeline across the US border. The owner of the pipeline canceled the project. And even the owner of the pipeline said the extension (which was still years away from completion) would not have helped to reduce gas prices. It was gonna carry Canadian oil to refineries in the south, for export over seas. Not be used for US gasoline. A foreign company was using shady practices and eminent domain rules to basically steal us citizen land. And endanger their clean water. Fvck your gasoline.
2.) he hasn’t closed or removed any existing drilling permits. Just hasn’t allowed new ones. Because there are thousands and thousands of unused drilling permits.
Withdraw a permit or cancel equates to the same result.
He could ask his buddy Putin to take care of that, or he could ask his buddy Xi to cook up a global pandemic, like the one that drove gas prices down during failed-45’s mal-administration. (Note: I don’t think China cooked up COVID, but some maga covidiots do).
Gas prices are already coming down. But Presidents don’t really have much impact on gas prices.
They actually do. An administration’s energy AND foreign policies can have negative or positive impact on fuel prices.
No thanks I’m keeping my ICE’s as soon as the Republicans take over gas and diesel prices will come down.
And you know why that’s true?
It’s because oil companies, refinery companies, traders, speculators, etc. are conspiring to keep the prices high in order to drive out the democrats and moderates.
And why wouldn’t they? They want a government that’s more favorable to their wants. And that’s the repubs, not the dems.
I mean, I would do it if I was in control of an important industry.
If anyone tells you big business doesn’t run this country, they’re lying thru their teeth.
$45k for a base LT?!
But probably with performance specs (hp/torque) and acceleration closer to the ICE RS version. Plus it’s gonna be quieter and probably have an efficiency around 100mpg, meaning much less cost to operate.
What’s not said here is how ‘Decontented’ the stripped EQUINOX-ev will be for $30,000. I ordered a LYRIQ 5/19/22, but it to me has too much standard equipment – most of which I’ll never use. So I’m very interested in the future vehicle also – as long as I can get a big battery in it.
Anyone else have a nagging suspicion that GM is basically going to have only ONE ev passenger car LYRIQ-Blazer-Equinox ?
Badge Engineering is back !!!
It’s a launch edition, so the content will be different from other Lyriq models.
Incorrect – the ‘DEBUT’ edition at under $60k was the ‘Launch’ edition. I had to take the “Luxury” model, at $3,000 more, which supposedly will be continually made, but just with more lavish versions offered later.
GM really isn’t saving much on the complexity of models and powertrains here, and making it hard for the general consumer to understand too. Of course enthusiasts will be able to figure it all out like they normally do, but I can’t figure out why they have FWD AND RWD to go with AWD, and RWD only for one trim level (RS).
Hoping when they finally have an EV 3 row SUV they keep things a little simpler.
Aside from the front 3/4 angle they originally showed, it looks much better than I initially thought. Still not convinced on the power charge port though, at least not hinging down like that.
The RS is always a lower less powerful model vs the SS. The RS gets one motor and the SS gets two for more grip and power.
How fast you want to go is how many motors you are willing to pay for,.
I think the RS AWD will be two motor. The Lyriq makes 500hp awd and the SS is 557. I’m hoping the RS is 500hp when AWD, or at least 480 because that’s what they do.
Nice how they will offer this in FWD, RWD and AWD. No one should complain about that.
It would be nice to buy RWD again in a passenger vehicle.
I completely agree with this. There’s no other EV on the market that offers this flexibility.
Basically choose how many motors you want and their size and basically they’re plug and play. Also offers the opportunity to distinguish between The different brands.
Well it seems Mexico is still GMS place to make the EVs too now.
Is it a problem that GM has production in a North American neighboring country? Especially if that country can produce lower priced products that are still profitable?
Plus, it seems production at foreign locations has better quality then what’s produced at US facilities. Seems like a win win for people in the market for a Blazer EV.
If the called foreign brands can make vehicles profotably in the US why can’t gm? Perhaps the other guys have better management.
Because foreign manufacturers have to worry about trans-atlantic/pacific shipping. Cheaper to build here. Many of those, if not all, factories are also non-union.
Or they don’t have unions dragging them down!
The wages and benefits offered at the transplants meets or exceeds the traditional Big 3. BTW, today’s UAW has been so watered down that it is a semblance of what it was.
I’m actually very surprised about the pricing (as of right now), nice job GM
Build it in the USA!
$45,000 for a base FWD-only vehicle that only get 247 miles of ESTIMATED range…no thanks. And that is before dealer markup…I’ll keep using decomposed dino juice for now.
I think main dissatisfaction is that it looks like it less ground clearance than the ICE Blazer.
