After announcing both Chevrolet all-electric crossovers in Mexico during the summer of last year, General Motors has reiterated the eventual arrival of the all-new Chevy Blazer EV and Chevy Equinox EV in the Latin country.
The automaker confirmed its plans to market the all-new Chevy Blazer EV and Equinox EV in the domestic market of Mexico during the recent Annual Convention of Dealers of the Mexican subsidiary held in Las Vegas, Nevada. These two next-generation crossovers based on the Ultium architecture will be manufactured locally in the Latin country and are part of GM’s ambitious global expansion strategy for zero-emission vehicles.
“At General Motors we see a 100 percent electric future and Mexico is considered in this plan,” said Vice President of Sales, Service and Marketing at GM Mexico, Héctor Villarreal. “I am very pleased to share with you the introduction of these models that are part of our electrification strategy and that we will soon be able to see rolling on the roads of our country. These two models, Blazer EV and Equinox EV, will be produced at our plant in Ramos Arizpe, Coahuila, for the world,” he added.
The new Chevy Blazer EV and Equinox EV are Chevrolet’s first zero-emission vehicles developed with GM’s Ultium Battery technology and Ultium Drive motors. As such, these two global Bow Tie brand models are key pieces to bring electric mobility to the masses, focused on two of the largest volume segments of the automotive industry.
Specifically, the company confirmed that the Chevy Blazer EV will be the first of the two to officially launch in Mexico. Although it was previously announced that the Blazer EV’s arrival in the country was scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year, the schedule was adjusted and the crossover will end up reaching the local dealer network during the first quarter of 2024.
For its part, the Chevy Equinox EV still does not have a specific timeline for its official launch in Mexico, and its arrival at dealerships will occur sometime next year – several months after going on sale in the United States and Canada. So far, the Ramos Arizpe plant is the only GM facility worldwide confirmed to manufacture the Chevy Blazer EV and Equinox EV starting in the 2023 calendar year.
