Chevrolet Blazer EV
The Chevrolet Blazer EV, colloquially known as the Chevy Blazer electric, is a midsize battery electric crossover. It’s one of three all-new Chevy electric vehicles to launch during the 2023 calendar year, including the Equinox EV and Silverado EV.
Despite its name, the Blazer EV bears no mechanical relation to the ICE-powered Chevrolet Blazer.

The first-generation Chevy Blazer EV made its official debut in July 2022, and goes on sale in Summer 2023 as a 2024 model year vehicle. At launch, only the 2LT and RS trim levels are available, while the 557 horsepower Blazer SS set to follow later that calendar year. The 1LT and Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) will follow in Q1 2024.
Starting prices for the 2024 model year are as follows:
- 1LT: $44,995
- 2LT: $47,595
- RS: $51,995
- SS: $65,995
As the first Chevrolet to ride on the GM BEV3 platform, the 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV features GM Ultium batteries and Ultium Drive motor. In fact, it’s highly likely that the Blazer EV shares the 12-module, 100 kWh battery system with the Cadillac Lyriq.
FWD is standard across most of the lineup, while the SS is offered exclusively in an AWD configuration. AWD is also optional on 2LT and RS trims. A RWD configuration is also available for the sporty RS. Maximum range is 320 miles for the FWD RS model.
The vehicle offers a significant amount of advanced technologies, including Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving assistant.
Unlike the uninterrupted 33-inch display of the its Lyriq platform mate, the Blazer EV features two separate interior displays, including a large, horizontally-oriented center stack infotainment display and a separate, digital instrument panel (gauge cluster). The floor is flat, enabling healthy amounts of legroom for both front and rear seat occupants.
The Blazer EV is built at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico alongside the ICE-powered Chevy Blazer crossover. As part of a $1 billion investment for the complex that GM announced in April 2021, work in the Ramos Arizpe plant to prepare it for EV manufacturing started in the spring of 2022.
