GM currently offers several different vehicles for law enforcement duties, including the Chevy Tahoe PPV (Police Pursuit Vehicle) and Chevy Silverado 1500 PPV. However, when it’s released, the upcoming Chevy Blazer EV PPV will be the brand’s quickest-ever Police Package.
The civilian-spec 2024 Chevy Blazer EV made its big debut over the summer, with GM revealing additional details on the new Chevy Blazer EV PPV in August. Notably, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV is the first pursuit-rated all-electric Chevy vehicle ever produced.
The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV is based on the range-topping Chevy Blazer EV SS, and was designed to either meet or exceed the demands of Michigan State Police annual vehicle testing. Under the skin, the Chevy Blazer EV PPV runs the largest GM Ultium battery pack possible, with GM Ultium drive motors for motivation. Properly applied, the all-wheel drive 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV boasts the quickest-ever 0-to-60 mph time and 0-to-100 mph time of any Police Package ever offered. To note, the civilian-spec Blazer EV SS is estimated to hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
To help it shed that speed, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV is equipped with upgraded Brembo brakes based on equipment from the Blazer EV SS. The Blazer EV PPV is also equipped with police-specific content like underbody skid plates, police-rated tires, steel wheels, and various emergency equipment. Additionally, the new Chevy Blazer EV PPV will be capable of light towing, for things like radar trailers and bike racks.
The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV also features unique police-specific upgrades in the cabin. The seats, for example, are designed to accommodate police duty belts and gear, while the multifunction steering wheel remains un-programmed for relevant up-fitter modifications. There’s also a standard Rear Camera Mirror, vinyl flooring, a police-spec center console, and vinyl rear seat.
The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV will launch in Q1 of the 2024 calendar year.
