One of the biggest distinctions between electric vehicles and their ICE-powered counterparts is the ability to “fuel up” at the owner’s home, potentially eliminating the need to stop and charge while out on the road. Of course, this requires that a home charging station be installed, and select buyers of the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV receive this installation for free. However, that offer doesn’t apply to the Chevy Blazer EV.
Available to eligible customers who purchased or leased a 2022 or 2023 model year Bolt EV or Bolt EUV, this installation promotion includes the purchase and installation of a 240-volt outlet from a vendor selected by General Motors. However, there are a few caveats, including the fact that installation must be performed at the customer’s primary residence, that additional costs may apply, and that neither a charging unit nor compatible charging cord are included as part of the promotion.
It’s worth noting that customers who don’t meet all the parameters for a standard installation may be eligible for alternative charger offers. For those who may be interested in learning more about this promotion and how to apply, be sure to check out the Chevy Installation page.
Interestingly, the purchase or lease of a Chevy Blazer EV doesn’t include free installation of a home charging station. However, a dual-level portable charge cord is supplied as standard, which connects to either 120V or 240V outlets.
In regard to structure, 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 FWD (2LT, RS), RWD (RS), or AWD (2LT, RS, SS).
