DETROIT: Chevrolet revealed the all-electric 2024 Blazer EV on Wednesday expanding the growing electric vehicle (EV) portfolio. The car makes the ownership more accessible and driving Chevy into the heart of the growing midsize electric crossover segment.
Multiple distinct trims, multiple range options — Including an available GM-estimated range of up to 320 miles on a full charge— and available front, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations offer customers more choices, and a seamless EV experience designed to complement virtually every lifestyle.
Those choices include available 1LT, 2LT, RS and Chevy’s first-ever electric SS performance model, along with a pursuit-rated Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) model for police fleet applications.
Scott Bell, vice president of Chevrolet said that, “The 2024 Blazer EV sets a new tone for electric SUVs, with options and intuitive technologies that help position Chevy for leadership in one of the fastest-growing EV segments.”
He also said that, “Along with the all-new Silverado EV and Equinox EV coming next year, we are making great strides in offering more choices for zero tailpipe-emissions vehicles — choices that make switching to an EV easier than ever.”
The Blazer EV is based on GM’s innovative Ultium Platform with athletic styling that elevates the heralded design established in 2018 by the gas-powered Chevrolet Blazer, and performance cues inspired by the Camaro and Corvette.
