As GM Authority previously covered, production of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico is currently under way. Now, a new report claims that production of the all-new all-electric crossover is quickly picking up speed.
According to an article from Vanguardia, the Ramos Arizpe facility is already spitting out 65 units of the Chevy Blazer EV every hour. In fact, plant officials claim that the first order of the all-electric crossover has already departed for the U.S.
It’s worth noting that officials also stated that there is still no date for the departure of the Chevy Equinox EV.
An interesting piece to note is that reservations of the all-electric crossover have been filled since October 2022. At the time, General Motors seemed content with the number of reservations it had. However, with production seemingly going well, it’s possible that The General will begin to take new reservations of the Blazer EV soon.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV will eventually be offered in four trim levels, including the 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS. At present, the 2LT and RS trims are the first two trim levels currently being produced. Meanwhile, the range-topping SS model will arrive in Spring 2024, with the 1LT to follow afterwards. Pricing for 1LT, 2LT, RS and SS starts at $44,995, $47,595, $51,995, $65,995, respectively.
Notably, there will also be a PPV variant unavailable for the general public.
Under the skin, all variants of the Blazer EV ride on the GM BEV3 platform, and are motivated by GM Ultium Drive motors and GM Ultium batteries. A wide variety of drivetrain configurations will be offered, and include either front-wheel drive (1LT, 2LT, RS), rear-wheel drive (RS), or all-wheel drive (2LT, RS, SS).
