Check Out These 2024 Chevy Blazer EV RS Real-World Photos: Exclusive27
General Motors officially revealed the all-new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV last month, debuting a brand-new all-electric entry for the crossover segment. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the 2024 Chevy Blazer RS with the following exclusive GM Authority real-world photos.
For those readers who may be unaware, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV RS trim level slots in below the range-topping SS trim level and above the mid-range 2LT trim level, offering a dash of street-ready sportiness without stepping up to the full-blown performance of the Blazer EV SS.
In terms of exterior styling, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV RS features a large blocked-off central grille and RS badge resting below horizontally oriented lighting elements and a centrally placed light-up Bow Tie emblem. The production model includes full LED lighting.
This particular example is obviously not dressed in full production spec, and instead shows an unpainted front fascia, no badging, and placeholder, non-production lighting. Also notable is the large square section that juts out from the grille, which is likely where the front license plate will be mounted.
Moving around to the sides, we see this particular 2024 Chevy Blazer EV RS missing a variety of body components. With these components missing, it becomes obvious just how much body cladding the new Blazer EV can accommodate, including the front fenders, wheel arches, and side skirts. To note, the charging port is located on the driver’s side front fender. This particular example is also running the 21-inch two-tone wheels equipped as standard by RS trim levels.
Finally, in back, we see this 2024 Chevy Blazer EV RS equipped with an unpainted rear bumper, while the taillights are also placeholder units. Also of note the swoopy-looking roof spoiler, a component also equipped by the 2024 Chevy Blazer SS.
As for the powertrain and drivetrain, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV RS will be available with front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive, with varying levels of output. Pricing will start at $51,995, with availability opening up in Summer of 2023.

If trim levels are done right on the Blazer EV they can sell a ton of these.
I am not sure if it is just me but I honestly cannot tell what GM is Doing with the Trim levels on the Blazer when it comes to Having Dual Motor setup and how many Miles it gets if you do add a Dual Motor. I can only tell the Miles per Charge on the SS
Also, I hope in like a year TOPS that GM realizes that 190kW is just not good enough and goes to a bare Minimum 250kW DC Charging Speeds on their mainstream vehicles like the Blazer and Nox and whatever else is coming.
Obviously Lyriq should have never been sold at 190kW Charging Speed in my opinion.
If the charging curve is fairly flat why would 250KW charging be required? There are EV’s on the market that charge at 150KW just as fast as a Tesla with a peak rate of 250KW simply because of the charging curve and average charge rate. (For the engineers and math nerds – area under the curve).
Also the charge rate on the Blazer EV is limited by pack voltage. CCS has a peak output of 500 amps. Fully charged the large battery pack is 400VDC in the Blazer EV and the nominal voltage of 355VDC. A 190KW peak charge rate implies 380VDC. Which means it hits this peak at a fairly high SOC. Tesla’s for example hit there peak at about 25% SOC and then the charge rate drops rapidly.
I agree with what you are saying but what you are leaving out is that Tesla is about half year or so away from at least 350kW Charging Speeds. Some think that Tesla is Sandbagging and it will be much higher.
In China two Manufacturers say their cars within 12 Months will be charging at 500kW
So yes I do still stand by what I am saying that 190kW DC Fast Charging Speed will be obsolete fairly soon as in maybe by the time the Blazer is actually out in the Market.
If I was a Betting man by I would say by 2028 maybe 2030 the Bare Minimum will be 500kW
Momolos “BARE minimum will be 500 kw” (!!!!!!). The MINIMUM ???? !!!! I assume you think Technology Advances just happen across the board – or that future batteries will require far less refrigeration than they do now. Charging facilities (I hate to break this to you) COST MONEY….
Any profitable business has to price their products to maintain profitability…..Of course – then people will complain that it is too expensive to fast charge at the rate they want… So Be It.
While admittedly wrong about the peak before (10 years ago I went on record as saying the practical maximum will be 150 kw) – the 190 kw rating will probably only be for a short time and the long term charging rate will probably be around 150 kw for these cars…
People complain that the BOLT ev and BOLT EUV only start at 55 kw and immediately taper from there…. This is a minimum of THREE TIMES better than the previous products…
I heard a news blurb the other day that perhaps California is joining NYC in that – at certain times of the day – electricity will be over $1 / kwh as it already is during Super On-Peak times…. Obviously I’m glad I don’t live there….
That – combined with the cost of stationary batteries at super-fast charging stations all point to more expensive fast charging – not less – when considering the faster installations.
By 2028 yes it will be.
Customers will not be putting up with Brand New vehicles in the Future DC Fast charging for more than 10 Minutes. The Tech will obviously exist so do you sound shocked?
“Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good”…pretty sure that applies here to your charging speed comment. I only used DCFC 3 or 4 times over 3 years, when I owned my last EV (putting on 15K miles/year). Yes, faster is better, but 190kW charging speed is not a deal breaker in any way.
I believe most here are missing the Main Point. NOT everyone has access to Home and or Office Charging.
So they will need to use their vehicles as we currently use ICE and fill up in no more than 10 Minutes lets say once or twice a week somewhere which would be a DC Fast Charging Station. I never once said ALL Charging Stations will be 500kW just the DC Fast Charging ones.
I would also assume a ton of say Large Box Stores, Grocery Stores, and Parking lots will utilize like 50-100kW Ports all throughout.
huuuuummmm how ugly
This is a prototype IVER vehicle. It’s not meant to be pretty. It’s a test vehicle to make sure the major stuff comes together right before being released to start production tooling.
Nevertheless, a design reliant upon so many bits and pieces to finally make some sense just does not impress. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it ends up OK.
It’s got a face only a mother could love.
Man this front license plate holder destroys the look of the fascia. Can you imagine this on the SS. I hope it is not on the Canadian version where we don’t have a front plate.
Half the states don’t have them either. Notice how it’s empty on this vehicle that’s in Michigan?
It will be an option, just like any car.
To me this looks very much like the VW ID4. Why? I don’t understand why auto makers feel that EV’s need to look so much different from their counterparts. I admire Ford for making the F-series Lightning look nearly the same as the ICE models.
They don’t have very good pics of it yet, but I’m really more interested in the Equinox EV from the little I’ve seen of it. Still an SUV, but if I’m forced to go to an SUV I at least want it to look the part and not some deformed mix of SUV/Van and car.
This car has potential, it’s so similar to the ICE Blazer it could be seen as the Redesigned ICE car. It’s also better looking than it’s platform sharing lyriq in my opinion. We shall see how well it sells and how quickly GM can ramp up production. I’m blow away at how slow the Hummer and Lyriq are rolling out and leads me to believe they underestimated the complexity of building a simpler car 😂
It’s bigger than what I thought it would be! Seeing it on the road gives a better perspective on its size.
Corey Green… Higher end low volume makes auto makers money… Correct me if I am wrong but didn’t Telsa start with an insanely expensive model S?! And now they have enough money to build cheaper vehicles. And the simpler car is coming the Equinox EV…. I am waiting for that one!
Still don’t get the trim design in that rear quarter window. Why can’t that be a solid piece of glass without the design line at the top? If they wanted the roofline to drop more just do that. This looks odd and GM Authority has yet to call it out or provide more details on it.
If you look at some of the design sketches for the Blazer EV you can see what that detail is supposed to be. I think it was originally intended to be body colored but it’s still kinda odd that they didn’t follow through on the production model. Now it’s just kinda… there. Oddly enough I’ve gotten used to it and it doesn’t bother me anymore.
Its a test vehicle. Wake up.
Anyone else notice the poor driving line taken by the test driver?
Please explain. What poor driving line? It looks fine to me.
As more EV’s are sold, the demand for gasoline goes down, and the price of gas goes down when the GOP takes over, I will continue driving ICE vehicles. No harm no foul.
Good luck with that. This is not a political forum.
Looks like most GM vehicles after they’ve been on the road a few years.
How can it not be political? I had Cheerios for breakfast, doesn’t that fit in with the conversation?
