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 including 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.
