After officially debuting back in July 2022, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV is set to launch in the U.S. market later this year, and to highlight its performance potential, GM has just released a new video showcasing a Blazer EV SS being driven by NASCAR drivers Daniel Suarez and Ross Chastain.
On the video, Suarez and Chastain take turns putting the all-electric crossover through its paces, which includes a 0-to-60 mph sprint in less than four seconds. In order to achieve this feat, the Blazer EV SS features an AWD drivetrain with an available 648 pound-feet of torque in Wide Open Watts (WOW) mode. Indeed, the race car drivers seem thoroughly impressed with the acceleration from the EV.
In case you missed it, here’s the lowdown on the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV SS. In order to stand apart from the rest of the Blazer EV lineup, the Blazer EV SS features a unique front grille, a two-tone exterior color scheme with a black roof and A-pillars, and standard 22-inch wheels.
The upgrades don’t stop with the exterior, as the interior adds sueded microfiber seating with Adrenaline Red surfaces, or available Argon Orange interior upholstery accents. A 17.7-inch diagonal color touchscreen and an 11-inch digital driver information cluster are equipped as standard affair. Active safety features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and IntelliBeam.
As for structure, all Blazer EV variants ride on the GM BEV3 platform. Horsepower for the range-topping SS model is rated at 557 ponies, while output is routed to all four wheels via GM Ultium battery and GM Ultium Drive motor technologies. Production will take place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
