The 2024 Chevy Blazer EV was unveiled in July of 2022, with GM pulling the sheets on a new midsize crossover propelled by The General’s latest all-electric vehicle technology. While the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV will be available to civilians in a wide variety of configurations and trim levels, Chevy will also offer a Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) variant to law enforcement, as GM Authority covered previously. Now, we’re getting a thorough look at what the new 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV has to offer thanks to a recently released video.
Clocking in at 12 minutes and 26 seconds, the video provides an overview of all the features of the first pursuit-rated EV based on the GM Ultium platform. Highlights of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV include a 400-volt all-wheel-drive propulsion system. Maximum output is set at 498 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. There’s also an even 50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution for enhanced handling, while the onboard 105 kWh battery provides an estimated 250 miles of range on a full charge.
Upgraded heavy duty suspension and six-piston Brembo front brake calipers (matched to 15.3-inch rotors) help to handle the heft, while a set of underbody skid plates protect the bits under the body. The police crossover also rides on 20-inch steel wheels wrapped in Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tires.
The underlying electrical architecture is designed for the needs of law enforcement equipment, and features standard remote start, remote keyless entry, and passive power mode. When police officers exit the vehicle with the key fob, the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV will automatically arm Protected Idle mode, and will stay powered and unlocked, leaving equipment in the cabin active for quicker use. The vehicle will not be drivable until a key fob is detected.
Vinyl rear seating with heavy-duty vinyl flooring are included as standard on the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV 9C1 model, while the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV PPV 9PC retains a civilian-style interior.
