Four months after starting production of the all-electric crossover in the Latin country, General Motors has just announced the first units of the all-new Chevy Blazer EV having been built in Mexico.
The automaker officially reported the first units of the all-new Chevy Blazer EV built at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, which were reflected in the October Light Vehicle Production bulletin created with data from the Mexican Association of the Automotive Industry, A.C. (AMIA) of that country. In fact, this is the first time that the new Blazer EV appears in the official registry of the Mexican automotive industry.
Although company employees in the Mexican factory have been publishing images of all-new Chevy Blazer EV units in production since the end of June on their social networks, it was not until October that production of the all-electric crossover was officially reflected in the company’s records, with a first batch of 6,127 units of the Blazer EV that came off the production line.
As such, at this time it is unclear whether the 6,127 examples of the Chevy Blazer EV that GM Mexico reported last month were manufactured during October, or if that figure also contains units built in the previous months. In any case, the first production record of the model represents a significant volume of units ready for sale that confirms the key role of the Blazer EV in GM’s strategy to massify electric vehicles.
Furthermore, this notable first record of Chevy Blazer EV units manufactured in Mexico reinforces GM Authority‘s recent exclusive report on the increase in inventory levels of the electric crossover in November 2023 in the United States. Evidence on record shows that Blazer EV deliveries in the U.S. market have been growing exponentially during the last quarter of the year.
The all-new Chevy Blazer EV made its global debut in July 2022 as the Bow Tie brand’s first mass-market all-electric crossover based on the Ultium architecture. So far, the Ramos Arizpe complex is the company’s only facility in the world that manufactures the model to supply mainly North America and other international markets – such as the Middle East and South America.
