Production of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV is currently under way, and as a result, GM has contacted reservation holders of the all-electric crossover to start the order process for their vehicles.
However, availability of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV varies by trim level, with some of the three trims – 2LT, RS, and SS – currently unavailable as choices for reservation holders.
Specifically, only the 2LT AWD and RS AWD trim levels of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV are currently being built at the moment for reservation holders. The RS RWD can be “indicated” as an order request, but not submitted as an order.
Since there will be no 1LT trim level as originally announced, those who reserved a 1LT will need to choose a different trim instead. Those who reserved an SS trim Blazer EV can choose to either wait for an indefinite time for the Chevy Blazer EV SS to become available in the future, or change their order to either a 2LT or an RS.
Notably, both the 2LT and RS trim levels of the 2024 Chevy Blazer EV are currently being built with mandatory option packages included. At least initially, the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (RPO code WPN) and Comfort and Convenience package (RPO code ZFT) will be forced choices on the 2LT AWD trim level of the Blazer, increasing its base price to $56,715 from its actual $53,195 base MSRP.
Similarly, first production RS AWD includes the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (RPO code ZL5) as a mandatory option. This raises its base MSRP from the actual $57,595 to the $60,215 price at which GM will fulfill the initial orders.
It’s currently unclear if the announced pricing for the RS RWD, which pegs the trim and drivetrain combination at a base $61,790, includes the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (RPO code ZL5) or if it is the trim’s actual base price. As a reminder, RS RWD vehicles can be “indicated” as an order request, but not submitted as an order at this time.
The only non-mandatory factory option currently available for the initial orders for the Chevy Blazer EV by reservation holders is the Power Panoramic Dual-Panel Sunroof (RPO code CAJ), optional on the 2LT AWD only for an additional charge of $1,500.
Debuted last year as an all-electric, brand-new take on the familiar Chevy nameplate, the Chevy Blazer EV has an official estimated energy efficiency rating of 279 miles of range per charge for the currently available trim levels. Charging time when using a 240V source is 9.5 hours.
