Just a month after confirming the upcoming all-electric crossover for Brazil, General Motors showcased the all-new Chevy Blazer EV during a zero-emissions event in the South American country.
According to InsideEvs Brazil, the all-new Chevy Blazer EV was exhibited for the first time to the Brazilian public in the city of Brasilia during the seminar ‘ANFAVEA – Driving the Future of Electrification in Brazil’, organized by the Brazilian Association of Automotive Vehicle Manufacturers (ANFAVEA, for its Portuguese acronym for Associação Nacional dos Fabricantes de Veículos Automotores). GM took advantage of the event focused on the future of electric mobility to preview the Blazer EV.
In particular, the Chevy Blazer EV unit on display by the automaker at Brazil’s zero-emission vehicle seminar was partially camouflaged and had an inscription on the windshield that translates to “In the final stage of testing in Brazil.” With this, the Brazilian subsidiary confirms that it is making progress in tuning the crossover to adapt it to local topography and legislation before its launch in the country – scheduled for 2024.
“Our plan is to begin offering the Blazer EV around the middle of next year, shortly after the launch in the United States,” previously said President of GM South America, Santiago Chamorro. “The Chevrolet brand has advanced a lot in prestige and admiration among the Brazilian consumer because it has a highly technological product line that is in line with the best we offer in the world,” he added.
Brazil will be the first country in South America to introduce the new Chevy Blazer EV that has just started series production at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, the only facility confirmed to date to manufacture the model and supply the countries where it is marketed. The midsize Blazer EV rides on the GM BEV3 platform and stands out as the first Chevrolet crossover to offer a high-performance variant with the brand’s iconic SS trim.
The all-new Chevy Blazer EV is expected to officially debut in Brazil in the first half of 2024 and hit dealerships in the country in the middle of next year as the first Chevrolet vehicle based on GM’s Ultium architecture. Soon after, the zero-emissions midsize crossover will be followed by the all-new Chevy Equinox EV that has also been confirmed for the Brazilian market.
